Sun, sand, sea and swaying palms on Hawaii’s world-famous Garden Island, Kauai. Does it get any better? Not really, which is a large part of why The Point at Poipu, a Diamond Resorts & Hotelsproperty, is also a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner. That, and the convenient poolside restaurant, Honu Cove Bar & Grill, whose meals offer an alternative to the barbecues you can host around the gas grills. And the daily events and, of course, accommodations – comfortable, thoughtfully appointed one- or two-bedroom retreats, with a kitchen and a balcony, patio or terrace apiece.
Make a splash in the outdoor pool, or make your way down to Shipwreck Beach, which the property overlooks, and frolic among the foaming Pacific waves. Bathe in the adults-only Jacuzzi, or inhale the fragrances of the blooming flowers that dot the grounds. And if you need a change of sunny, sandy scenery, then relocate to another part of this pristine isle: In addition to featuring golf greens, a grotto, a canyon, enchanting waterfalls and verdant state parks, it boasts a total of 50 miles of pristine shoreline.

It doesn’t get much more beautiful than Kauai, known as the Garden Island. When you’re not swimming in The Point at Poipu’s pool, soaking in its hot tub or making your way down to Shipwreck Beach, see some of the most striking foliage at several state parks, such as the 17-mile paradise along the Na Pali Coast. Tour the Fern Grotto, see the Wailua Falls, or hike the Kalalau Trail. You can also take on-site hula lessons or crafting classes, or pick from 10 golf courses and nearly 50 miles of other white sands on the island.
How to Get There
Lovely resort and very helpful staff. There is no easy beach access and the pool very shallow, but nice for relaxing. The area in Poipu is lovely and our family had a good time. Whenever there was a problem the staff was right there to help.
I stayed at The Point in 2017, ocean front and thoroughly enjoyed my stay back then. This past September, I planned a family trip and deliberately booked ocean front again. It was a first time visit to any HI island for my son in law and I wanted it to be special. Unfortunately the view in room 9205 is obstructed. Management was very receptive when I gave feedback however. Ultimately though here are my key takeaways:
I want The Point to stop calling the room ocean front.
Pool was closed because of stool - yuck!
Bartender at pool was overwhelmed and scattered.
This time around I found the place to only be average at best - disappointing. I won’t stay there again.
This is our first trip to Kauai and this resort has been much better than we had hoped. The Lobby is elegant, service has been fabulous and friendly. The landscaping is beautiful. This is a quality place to stay. The beach is a short drive (about half a mile).
