Koloa Landing Resort
What We Love
- Two outdoor swimming pools (one is adults-only)
- The spa’s Japanese Ofuro couples soaking tub
- The two-, three- and four-bedroom villas are ideal for families and groups
- Villas are between 1,300 and 3,600 square feet—the largest on Kauai
What To Know

- Not a beachfront property (however it is oceanfront)
- Eco friendly
- Free WiFi
Buzzy design firm Natural Instincts went contemporary Hawaiian with the decor, but don’t expect island kitsch. The color scheme is neutral, in keeping with the lush, natural environment of the resort’s 25 acres. Dark hardwoods nod to plantation-style furniture; monochrome botanical prints pop up in wallpapers, textiles, and rugs; and woven headboards and seagrass chairs add tropical texture. All rooms are condo-style, starting at a vast 1,300 square feet spread between a living area with a full gourmet kitchen, an outdoor lanai, an en suite laundry area and bedrooms with supersoft linens and walk-in closets. The bathrooms are large, with a separate soaking tub and shower, and Paya Organics papaya-infused bath products. The resort’s high-end spa, 24-hour fitness center, and two swimming pools with waterfalls and lagoons make up for the fact that this is not a beachfront property. If you want to hit the sand, lush Poipu Beach is a five- to 10-minute stroll away, and the Koloa Landing Concierge and Beach Club rents out beach gear and surfboards and arranges tours and lessons. The resort’s Marketplace is a grab ’n’ go spot for meals, coffee, snacks and some gourmet groceries, but there isn’t a full-service restaurant. The Holo Holo Bar and Lounge offers tropical cocktails and live music on some nights, in the lobby.
In the Area
A footpath leads guests to the Shops at Kukui’ula Village, where iconic Hawaiian restaurants like Merriman’s, Dolphin Sushi, Josselin’s and Tortilla Republic offer deals. No visit to Kauai would be complete without a stop at Jo Jo’s for shave ice, right after you take in the jaw-dropping view of Waimea Canyon, called “the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” A Napali Coast catamaran tour with Captain Andy’s Sailing Adventures is likely one of the most idyllic days at sea you can experience. Since Kauai is small, it’s easy to pack a lot of sightseeing into a short stay.
How to Get There
⭐️I was unsure of the price that they were charging for this resort but is was a business trip so we booked anyway. OH MY this place is great customer service, amenities and the room we had AHHMAZING. We booked a 3 bedroom to share to keep cost down and loved it. It has 3 bedrooms , full kitchen , living room , dining room , washer dryer, wrap around lanai with furniture. Master bedroom had a huge bath with soaking tub and separate shower. Multiple pools one right outside our building #3 and main pool had a mini slide and a larger tunnel slide.
Will be back with family next time
We are Platinum Marriott members and were treated as such with a gorgeous room, great service, peaceful setting near bustling southern Poipu area. Beautiful salt water pools have waterfalls and a fun little water slide. There are lots of families here (we left our grown children home), so be prepared for that. We asked for a quiet room and everything is spread out among garden paths and trees so you don’t ever feel crowded. holoholo grill has healthy and heavy (but delicious) breakfast items. Didn’t try the spa or dinner, as we are road warriors. Warning: traffic is ridiculous around here. Avoid 7-830am or 4-7pm on the local roads! Enjoy the resort!
This hotel was truly amazing! The rooms/suites are beautiful and equipped with everything you would need for a most enjoyable stay. The staff was always very helpful and friendly. Pools are beautiful and plentiful, never too crowded or noisy.
We ate at the restaurant on the property every morning and some evening. After staying 7 days we worked our way through the breakfast menu never being disappointed, they were the best breakfast meals we've ever had and prepared perfectly every time. The dinner menu was just as good, we tried eating out at other places and was always disappointed and wish we had just ate at the hotel.
We were very happy we chose to stay at the Koloa Landing Resort and would definitely stay there again.
The only complaint I would have is that they only offer a unsecured wi fi connection and not an enhanced secure connection. Other then that this resort is perfect.
We visited Kauai this past March, Koloa Landing was my final choice on place to stay, we had two, two bedroom villas with views of the pool. The staff was exceptional, the food great and the villas beyond what we thought.
Beautiful villas, gorgeous grounds and the largest pool I've ever seen on this island. The service was fantastic! We will definitely be returning. We had great amenities in our villa and loved the food at the restaurant.
