Plantation offers the grace of yesteryear for de-stressing today
A 30-acre historic property on Kauai's west coast, Aston Waimea Plantation Cottages is a step back in time. Lovingly restored vintage houses are outfitted with period furnishings in rattan, wicker and mahogany. Each cottage is uniquely decorated and offers its own charm. While a handful of cottages are oceanfront, most are set among the coconut palm and banyan trees, fronting graceful manicured lawns. A pool and spa add contemporary comforts, but the draw here is a feeling of being transported to a simpler, quieter time.
Highlights
  • Overall ambiance of idyllic restfulness
  • Authentic sense of Kauai history
  • Spa with indoor and outdoor treatment areas
  • A 4,000-square-foot, five-bedroom Managers House
Location
  • Kauai's west coast, which serves as a gateway to Waimea Canyon, Koke'e State Park, and raft and kayak tours along the iconic Na Pali Coast
Rooms
Restored one- to five-bedroom vintage homes from Kauai's plantation era are clustered about the 30-acre Aston Waimea Plantation Cottages property. Period furnishings and architectural details evoke a bygone era and exude romance. For larger families or groups, top choice is the Managers House, a 4,000-square-foot, five-bedroom oceanfront home with AC in the master bedroom. The five-bedroom Kruse House, built circa 1920, was moved to this property in 2002. It is fully air-conditioned and each bedroom has a private bath.
Features
Those looking for a place to relax and recharge in utterly peaceful surroundings will see this historic property as paradise. Plantation-era cottages set the tone, aided by inviting hammocks beneath the trees. Aston Waimea Plantation Cottages isn't the place for exuberant nightlife, though the on-site pub sometimes brings in local talent to complement its handcrafted brews. The antithesis of activity and action, there's a slow-down-and-breathe ethic here -- in the quiet, at the pool, at the full-service spa. While the black-sand beach is not for swimming, Kekaha Beach, five minutes away, has white sand and a lifeguard.

Relaxation Get-a-way

The Plantation Cottages are AWESOME! I can't say enough good things about this place...and I am sometimes hard to please. I arrived on the island late and I had been informed that the front desk staff would be there until 10 p.m. I ended up arriving closer to 11 p.m. I thought how will I find this place in the dark? It was lit up beautifully with tiki torches. The sign on the door said to call security to check in and when I did he said he would be right there. I hung up the phone and the door opened! I got to my room and found a beautiful flower arrangement...my boyfriend worked with the front desk and they took care of everything. Awesome! They had bottled water and coffee in the room for me and a nice little collection of shampoo and bubble bath items. The ground of this place are breathtaking. I loved lounging in their hammocks on the property. The cleaning staff was only supposed to come once while I was here but they came twice and did a fantastic job. The Hartfelt Day Spa was EXCELLENT! You must try one of their massage packages...I have gone to spas all over the world and this place was the ultimate in relaxation. The Brewery was fabulous. I think I had the best lunch of my entire life with their pork sandwhich and homemade brew. FABULOUS. LOVE IT!!!!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

This is very close to the Waimea Canyon which is a nice little piece of nature in your backyard and sits on a black sand beach. There is the Brewery on site and also a few restaurants close by. Make sure you stop at JO JO's clubhouse for a shave ice...best on the whole island.
