Utterly relaxing condo haven on the east shore of KauaiVacationers looking for nice, affordable beachfront digs in one of the top locations on Kauai will find much to love at Aston Islander on the Beach. Low-key and peaceful, the resort sits on six landscaped acres along a strand of golden sand.

Aqua Kauai Beach Resort

4 stars
4.2 / 5 326 reviews
Plantation-style goes upscale on Kauai's Royal Coconut CoastSet on 25 acres along a three-mile beach -- Kauai's longest -- Aqua Kauai Beach 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. Aqua 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 slideSeries of concerts and programs promoting Hawaiian arts and artistsHawaiian Rainforest SpaComplimentary bocceComplimentary airport shuttle LocationKauai'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." RoomsAccents such as louvered doors and wood floors recall plantation style, but the old plantation homes didn't have what these rooms at Aqua Kauai Beach Resort have: travertine marble in the bathrooms and iPod docks in the living rooms. FeaturesThere's a distinctly Hawaiian feel to Aqua 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 from Aqua Kauai Beach Resort, offers excellent swimming and snorkeling.

Kauai highlights

  • Kaui highlights
  • Waimea Canyon

    Mark Twain once called this place the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific" – and he wasn't wrong. You'll have to pick your jaw up from the 3500-feet-deep canyon floor as you gaze over the 10-mile-long stretch of rugged rock faces jutting from the earth. A definite must on any Kauai vacation.

  • Kalalau Trail

    Calling all serious nature lovers and hikers… this is the trail for you. From the abundant greenery to the waterfalls, you will lose yourself in the tranquility. Pull up your bootstraps and get tramping on this 11-mile stretch of heaven along the breathtaking Napali coastline.

  • Prince Kuhio Park

    Home to the "People's Prince" of Hawaii (Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana'ole) in the early 20th century, this historical setting is full of the intriguing history of Kakaniana'ole's colorful life. From the foundations of his home to the royal fishpond and the heiau (ancient place of worship), there is plenty to see and do that won't cost you a royal cent on your Kauai travels.

  • Kilauea National Wildlife Refuge

    Known far and wide as a birdwatcher's paradise, this wildlife refuge is at the northernmost point of the island. From the albatrosses nesting in the cliffs to the Hawaiian monk seals and sea turtles in the azure ocean below, you can take it all in from the famous lighthouse for a nominal fee.

  • Koloa

    This quaint little town was home to Hawaii's very first sugar plantation, dating back to the 19th century. Stumble upon some of the oldest and most charming of buildings in Hawaii. With a laidback vibe and a vibrant arts scene, a visit to Koloa should certainly be on your Kauai travel itinerary.
