We stayed 3 nights here after a work conference at the Hyatt. I didn't think you could top the Hyatt, but the Koa Kea is just as amazing, in a different way. It is small, quiet, tranquil, luxurious and perfect! The location is great, the pool was top notch and we had a fantastic time. I hope to be back...

Intimate, attentive and beautiful in Poipu. In the midst of the craziness of the Sheraton and Marriott this is a small quiet oasis. First what we loved is the small intimate nature of the hotel, by the time we left we knew many of the staffs names and stories which made us feel a part of the resort. The pool...

Fantastic time at Koa Kea. The staff is so attentive and it is absolutely relaxing! Best suited for adults or couples. Pillow top beds make you fall asleep in minutes and is right on a beach for snorkeling or surfing.

Koa Kea is perfect! Just the right size for a couples get away or a family vacation. Every staff member we encountered was professional, caring and appeared to enjoy their job. Every aspect from the room to the amenities offered are well thought out and there for your vacation enjoyment. You will not be disappointed.

Three night visit to the south of Kauai after 5 nights in Princeville. We visited over Oregon's spring break in March and found Kauai to have beautiful weather all week and it did not feel like a crowded time to visit. The Koa Kea is an older property that was totally redone after earlier hurricane damage. The rooms are beautiful...

We loved our stay at the Koa Kea. We loved the small intimate feel of the hotel. We were fortunate enough to get an ocean front room and loved being able to hear the waves each night and walk right out to the path to the beach. We really liked the evening turndown service. The mai tais we had poolside...

The Koa Kea has been our resort of choice since we first discovered it in the summer of 2013, and we have returned every year since.. Although we stayed with the vaunted St. Regis for our wedding, we switched when we found the Koa Kea. The quality of the buildings and facilities is surpassed only by the quality of the...

We stayed for 3 nights, very relaxing and enjoyable. The staff is incredibly helpful to your every whim. We had an oceanfront room and thought it was well worth the extra money to fall asleep listening to the ocean. Food is delicious but expensive.

We spent about 5 days at Koa Kea in April. While I've stayed at many places with staff as accommodating and professional as Koa Kea, I would say I've never met a staff as legitimately friendly. The room was a great size (we were afraid it would be a little small, but it was spacious) and I loved the bathroom...

From the moment we drove up to the property we were treated so warmly and with such respect! There valet service is amazing, with both speed of service and helpfulness as we would head out. They always checked if we needed directions or suggestions. The staff inside are both courteous and helpful and always made sure it stay was perfect!...
