Make your next Hawaiian getaway a luxurious one at this premier Kauai beachfront resort located on the golden beaches of Poipu. Named the #1 resort in Kauai by Travel and Leisure Magazine for 2016, the Koa Kea Hotel & Resort provides unrivaled romance and relaxation. This boutique hotel features an on-site, award-winning restaurant, spa and furnished balconies in all their luxurious guest rooms. A serene saltwater pool is available for guest relaxation and just steps away lies one of Kauai’s best beaches.
Once you check-in, you can stay and enjoy the endless amenities the hotel has to offer or you can visit the National Tropical Botanical Garden just a few miles away. For a longer day trip, book a car ride to the incredible Waimea Canyon State park which is considered the Grand Canyon of the pacific for scenic views, waterfalls and frequent rainbows.
Further down the South Shore and off the beaten path lies the small, historic town of Old Koloa. Koloa opened its first sugar mill in 1835 and set the precedent for commercial sugar production across the islands. Old Koloa Town has retained much of its charm with shops now occupying the former plantation buildings along the main road.
There are many things to do in Koloa besides scuba, snorkeling, horseback riding and surfing. Koloa is bathed in history and warrants a trip to the local History Center to learn about the town’s deep sugar heritage. You can also explore the Koloa Heritage Trail which covers 14 cultural, historical and geological sites that stretch the length of Koloa. If you happen to stop by in July, Koloa hosts a huge Plantation Days Celebration which is an annual summer event that celebrates Kauai’s rich plantation past.
