"Another fantastic stay at this true Hawaiian Hotel, perfect Aloha spirit"

My husband & I stayed here for the 3rd time recently & have truly found paradise!! All the staff are amazing & the location is simply perfect for getting around Kauai. The yummy breakfast & great coffee(complimentary)starts your day off nicely. If you can,try for room 21 Orchidmaster suite, it has a wrap around lanai & the views are amazing & also quite private. Thanks again for making our visit to your lovely island very special & we can't wait to return & visit you all in the future.
