Tropical-luxe condo-style resort on Hawaii’s Garden Island with eco cred and a spa
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.
Flights are available to Lihue Airport (LIH) via connecting flights from major U.S. cities on a variety of carriers. Transfers to/from LIH, about 16 miles away, are not available through the property. Taxis to/from LIH are approximately $40, each way. If you’re renting a car or driving, self-parking is included in the resort fee.
