Aqua Kauai Beach Resort

4 stars
4.2 / 5 334 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.
