The vibrant furnishings (cushions splashed with flower motifs, buttercup-hued chaises), lush tropical gardens and ocean views from pretty much every room ensure the aloha spirit takes hold early at this sprawling luxury resort. Pristine grounds studded with coconut palms are lit with tiki torches at night, with lawns sloping down to the beach and the crashing waves of the Pacific. Achieve “lokahi” – balance or harmony — in the Anara Spa with treatments such as a bamboo stalk massage performed in a thatched-roof bungalow set among gardens, waterfalls and pools. The hotel’s traditional luau is held every Thursday and Sunday and includes a lavish Hawaiian buffet and Polynesian revue.
In the Area
Adjacent to the resort is the Poipu Bay Golf Course, a dramatically situated 18 holes whose backdrop of emerald mountains and stunning coastal outlooks will impress even non-aficionados. Get a bird’s-eye view of this gorgeous island with a Blue Hawaiian helicopter tour to take in Waimea Canyon, tour the coastline and travel over hidden waterfalls. Or, for an up-close perspective, hike the rugged clifftops of the 11-mile Kalalau Trail. Yearn to give something back? Sign up for the resort’s Enrich program, a voluntourism initiative that can involve anything from reforestation projects to building homes with Habitat for Humanity.
How to Get There
The property exceeded our expectations in beauty. Our room attendant was also very observant and treated us to champagne and fruit more than once. I am likely biased though as this was my first time to Hawaii. We treated ourselves to 7 nights at this lovely resort. I hope to return someday!
Time for property to be updated. Simple changes could be done. Rooms need to be updated too. Overall beautiful property. Food and service was excellent. Staff friendly and in time to needs. Great location
Had scrumptious but expensive three-course dinner here. Polenta crusted scallops (3 ample size) at $22.00 for appetizer. Macadamia nut crusted Mahi-Mahi on forbidden rice with delectable papaya/avocado relish for $46.00. Fabulous molten chocolate lava cake dessert for $15.00. (Photo) Friendly and efficient waiter. Pleasant ambience. Open air. Lovely breeze and sound of surf. Scent of flowers too. Not crowded. Able to have pleasant conversation. Had to wait quite awhile for dessert as baked when ordered. Waiter should have advised. Celebrated special occasion and meal lovely. Thank you.
We spent 8 days at the resort, celebrating New Year's. It was our first time back in 10yrs to Kauai and to this resort. It is absolutely beautiful. The multiple pools, grounds, rooms and service are all fantastic. We booked a club room for our stay which gave us access to breakfast, beverages and snacks throughout the day. This was a great way to start as we headed out on adventures around the island as well as around the resort. We also booked a cabana for a couple of days which ensured we had seating and sun cover. It also came with snacks, beverages and pool toys. I agree with other reviewers that finding seating and sun cover around the pool areas is challenging if you arrive after 9a. Overall, I highly recommend the resort. You will spend more but you get what you pay for. We had a great time and look forward to returning in the future.
A breathtaking ocean front resort that you will never want to leave. Multiple pools - including an adult only and another sandy beach pool. Exceptional on site restaurants, nightly entertainment at the centrally located bar/restaurant, impressive luau and beautifully landscaped fountains, waterfalls and grounds. The only negative aspect was the property charges for pool rentals such as inflatable inner tubes.
