The east side of the Garden Island is referred to as the the Coconut Coast for its groves of cocos nucifera trees, and you’ll be right in the thick of the foliage as a guest at this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning hotel on Kauai. Courtyard Kaua’i at Coconut Beach sits directly on the shores of the Hawaiian Pacific, offering you plenty of fruit-bearing palms to admire while you soak up the sun. Coconut products also appear on the property’s various menus, whether paired with prawns on the restaurant menu, stirred into vodka cocktails on the lounge menu or mixed with peppermint on the spa’s body-treatment menu.
There’s no shortage of other ingredients to try in this heavenly corner of the world, so continue sampling the bounty of the Tropics. Relax on an armchair of cinnamon wood in your room, or opt for an aromatherapy offering at the spa instead, and inhale the fragrant scents of native plants. Purchase a ticket to one of the twice-weekly luaus, and watch Polynesian, Tahitian, Maori, Tongan and Samoan performers dance with garlands of native flowers in their hair. Stake out a spot by the pool, and warm up by a Hawaiian fire – this is the recipe for the perfect vacation in paradise.
Make yourself at home in your comfortably appointed room, which features furnishings of cinnamon wood, a typical local material. You’ll also have a 37-in. LCD TV, on which you can surf satellite and pay-per-view movie channels, along with HBO, CNN and ESPN.Ocean View rooms measure 320 square feet, while Premium Oceanfront rooms are even larger, at 528 square feet. Whichever room you choose, you’ll have either one king or two queen beds, as well as a living area and an outdoor lanai.
The Voyager Restaurant is the hotel’s signature eatery, open for breakfast, which features dishes like banana-macadamia pancakes, and dinner, which brings poke, ceviche and the fresh catch of the day. Beach views are also on the menu, if you’re seated in the al-fresco area. Makai Lounge is a cocktail destination, with a creative drink menu that makes use of many ingredients typical of the Aloha State, including coconut and pineapple; the hotel also hosts a luau twice a week, which includes an indulgent Hawaiian feast.
Take a few hours to unwind further at Pua Day Spa, where facials, massages and body-glow therapies incorporate oils of peppermint, coconut and other international and regional flora. Beauty services are also available, such as paraffin treatments, makeup applications and waxes, and there’s a beautifully equipped fitness studio with cardio equipment and free weights.
Along with being on Coconut Beach, you’re in the Kauai region known as the Coconut Coast, a paradise on Earth, with waterfalls, canyons and panoramic lookouts. Visit a state park, golf at the Ocean Course at Hokuala, or take an adventurous helicopter tour of the entire Garden Island. You’ll also find a pool and whirlpool at the hotel, along with its sandy Pacific shore, if lazing around is more your style.
How to Get There
Great check in, Great staff nice older accommodations but not functional or hygienic. Bathtub did not drain (multiple checks to make sure.). Called desk, was asked if we wanted it forced tonight. Sure, we came all the way to Kauai to switch rooms in the middle of a romantic anniversary night. Told the desk, it’s too late to do anything but that they need to fix the problem.
No offer to. Move or refund on room.
2 hours later, the tub is still full, will not be able to bathe in the morning.
Also, cracked sink and blood on the door. Kind of sceevie.
Outside balcony covered in giant snails (Hawaii snails transmit encephalitis).
Had to sleep her for time, buy can’t pay to stay here again based on the lack of any remediation or remuneration or a fix. Unfortunately, I can not recommend this hotel. Deal or no deal, the lack of repair makes it untenable as a “4 Star” hotel.
Very convenient and in the middle whether your day takes you west past Lihue or North up to Hanalei. Hotel itself has nice rooms a great beach although not good for swimming, nice pool and bar area. Lots of Parking.
Pluses - responsive staff, welcome drink, generously sized rooms, near some good restaurants, quiet, good burgers
Minuses - not central enough to be walkable, not much of a beach, you'd expect more for your money (but this is Hawaii after all)
Here is our rating including pros and cons.
1. The Luau at the hotel was great.
2. Walking distance to the Coconut Beach shopping center.
3. Free Wi-Fi
1. Flying cockroaches in the room
2. Ocean View room is a joke. You have a partial view of the ocean.
3.Beach is unsafe. Rocks, you can't swim.
4. Size of the balcony - 2 chairs barely fit in it.
5. Room decor is dated.
6. A/C is noisy
7. Resort fees. This hotel is NOT a resort and should not charge for these fees.
Definitely would not recommend it.
I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this Marriott at the end of our trip. My wife and I stayed in the Princeville North Shore area for the duration of our 2 week honeymoon to Kauai. For our last night, we wanted to stay somewhere closer to the airport so we got a room here and it was a fantastic decision. The room was nice, pool/lounge area was fantastic and relaxing, and the Makai Lounge was delicious and very reasonably priced. Best of all, the staff were all so nice! I had contacted the hotel through Facebook to ask a few questions and iron out some details since our flight wasn’t until 10 pm. I was contacted by Karen and she was incredibly sweet and helpful, she even called my room to tell me she saw I had dogs and left treats for them for me to pick up at the front desk. Sweetest lady around. This was definitely an amazing end to the honeymoon and I would definitely recommend to others.
