Plantation-style goes upscale on Kauai's Royal Coconut Coast
Set on 25 acres along a three-mile beach -- Kauai's longest -- this resort evokes the graciousness of the plantation era but with a host of contemporary amenities. The beach, which is perfect for sauntering or sunning, is not for swimming. No problem. Kauai Beach Resort has four pools, a beachfront sand-bottomed pool and a fantasy pool with a 75-foot lava-tube water slide among them. Two restaurants, a lounge, a fitness center and a spa round out the facilities. And when guests want to explore further afield, Kauai's east coast is an ideal spot from which to do it.
Highlights
  • Fantasy pool with 75-foot lava-tube water slide
  • Series of concerts and programs promoting Hawaiian arts and artists
  • Hawaiian Rainforest Spa
  • Complimentary bocce
  • Complimentary airport shuttle
Location
Kauai's Royal Coconut Coast is rife with sacred sites and groves of slender coconut palms, with its character shaped in part by long, curving Wailua River, the only navigable river in all of Hawaii. A stay here should include visits to a trio of sites, Fern Grotto, Secret Falls, and 80-foot Wailua Falls, made famous in the opening scene of TV classic "Fantasy Island."
Rooms
Accents such as louvered doors and wood floors recall plantation style, but the old plantation homes didn't have what these rooms at Kauai Beach Resort have: travertine marble in the bathrooms and iPod docks in the living rooms.
Features

There's a distinctly Hawaiian feel to Kauai Beach Resort with its island architecture, but also a culture of sharing and promoting authentic Hawaiiana that sets it apart. The resort hosts events all year, including local musicians who share their art and stories, benefit concerts supporting the perpetuation of Hawaiian language and music, and a festival featuring the state's top slack-key artists. Check the annual calendar and plan your trip accordingly.

 

Although the beach out front isn't safe for swimming, Lydgate Beach Park, a couple of miles away, offers excellent swimming and snorkeling.

Delayed Honeymoon

We were given a free upgrade with a garden view. Room was immaculate, fresh smelling and the king size bed was super comfortable. I would highly recommend getting the buffet breakfast included if possible. We paid an extra $10 and were treated to an all you can eat buffet every morning which included everything you could possibly want for breakfast. Staff were all very friendly and accomodating.

The hotel had customer service representatives on hand from 8am to 7pm daily. They truly made our vacation memorable by recommending sites, restaurants and adventures to partake in. They also made all the reservations and arrangements for us and we received a discount on everything we did.

Superb, 2 years in a row

My wife and I stayed at the KBR for our honeymoon in 2012 and returned for our anniversary in 2013. We hope to make this a yearly visit every September and we will definitely stay at this resort whenever we are fortunate enough to come back to Kauai. The staff is super! From Sandy, Rose and Liz (front desk staff) to Paul (bartender at the pool bar) to Kileo (valet/bellhop) to the grounds and cleaning crews, everyone is smiling and waving and eager to help make your stay in paradise as fantastic as it can be. You can watch the sunrise every morning from the beach at the back of the resort, it's pretty amazing. Its location is very convenient as well. You are minutes from the airport and getting to the North and South shores of the island takes no longer than about 45 minutes. In sum, I would recommend this resort to anyone, you will not be disappointed! See you next year! Zach and Suzy Williams

Great stay

The hotel staff was extremely friendly, helpful and responsive to room requests and questions. There was a hand towel ring and two hooks in the bathroom but no towel rack. I found this very inconvenient.

Stay Somewhere Else

The hidden costs of this resort were numerous. The Valet parking was excessively expensive and yet they still expected gratuity. Although the price of the resort was excessive enough, everything had a charge. Use of the computers was over a dollar a minute and a dollar per page printed. The restaurant is very nice. But, $45 for the salad bar is excessive in my opinion. The room was comfortable, but not much more than what you could find at a cheap motel, other than the large screen television. It might have been enjoyable still, except that the staff are the most unfriendly I have met in a business. The only possible way I found of getting decent service was to include a large gratuity with every interaction. I would expect friendly service from the staff prior to receiving a gratuity. Whether you have plenty of money or just want a once-in-a-lifetime resort experience: Don't stay at this resort.

If you want to experience Snorkeling at its best and are new to the experience, I suggest going to Boss Frogs in Kapaa to rent the gear. The price is reasonable and all of the many sites around the island are provided on a map.

Great place to stay, close to airport and activities

This resort is great for families and couples who want a retreat. It is on the water, but has a beautifully landscaped pool/hot tub area with several pools and a helpful staff. The food is great and convenient. The staff was terrific and made the trip for us with tips and helpful hints. The rooms are smaller, but clean and comfy. When one of us left something behind after checkout, the security and front desk staff were quick to respond and prompt with follow-up. There are chickens roaming around outside (they are the whole island) and they took a bit of time to get used to, but all in all it was great. It was clean, fairly priced, featured very good food and was fun.

Very nice place for the money. Great location, close to town, airport and centrally located to all the sights. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The fitness center needs an update, but has all the basics.
