Ko`a Kea Hotel & Resort is a 121-room boutique oceanfront property offering guests an intimate and romantic Hawaiian resort on the “Garden Isle”. Located on the south shore of Kauai, it is the island’s closest hotel accommodations to the water, paired with luxurious amenities. South shore, Po’ipu, is also the sunniest part of the island.

Known as one of the island’s most romantic hotels, a selection of oceanfront guest rooms and suites offer unobstructed views of Poipu Beach. Each guest room or luxury suite has a design palate inspired by the sea and private lanais, offering incredible views and allowing the sun and sea breeze to become a part of the in-room experience.

Just steps beyond the patios of oceanfront guest rooms are Poipu Beach, one of Kauai’s most swimmable and popular beaches. An on-site beach activity center provides equipment rentals, lessons, and local recommendations for snorkeling, kayaking, surfing, and other water sports. Their lava-inspired, lagoon-style saltwater swimming pool and hot tub sit at the edge of their ocean lawn providing sweeping views of the Pacific.

Dining options include the poolside bar and Red Salt Restaurant & Lounge from acclaimed executive chef and Kauai native Noelani Planas. In a casual yet sophisticated seaside atmosphere, the menu celebrates fresh Hawaiian seafood and produce and on select nights the Red Salt Lounge is host to a sushi bar featuring the day’s freshest catch.
