Kauai, Hawaii Resorts & Hotels

Hawaii's ultimate tropical paradise, Kauai has amazing natural wonders to explore, from the velvety green, accordion-folded cliffs of Napali Coast to the multicolor vistas of Waimea Canyon. Sun seekers choose favorites from more than 50 miles of beaches, while hikers and kayakers have abundant options in unspoiled beauty. Best of all, laid-back Kauai is one of the state’s least-crowded islands, with low-key resorts and mellow former plantation villages. Places like the North Shore's Hanalei Bay, with its turquoise water, are perfect for simply relaxing.

Kauai is a relatively uncrowded tropical destination of outstanding beauty and it is worth spending a little time finding a luxury resort that will allow you to enjoy this splendid location to the full. Rolling green cliffs butted up against blue seas, with some 50 beaches,  with the occasional waterfall tumbling in make this the prettiest of the Hawaiian islands.

Must see spots include: Wailua River State Park, Waimea Canyo, Hanalei Beach, Polihale State Park, North Shore, the Kauai Museum, Wailua River State Park and Waimea Canyon, provide some of the most interesting travel spots are also a host of interesting attractions.

Some of the best places to locate yourself are Poipu Beach in the south with its ideal winter weather, and a kid friendly sandy protected bay. This is the most popular of the resort areas and where a lot of the resort action is located. The East side of the island is convenient for travel to all areas of the island. And in the calmer north by Hanalei Bay where the waterfalls and blue seas make watersports.   

Also keep in mind the weather is often best in the quieter more affordable periods. December to April is the busiest Time in Kauai as gusts seek to escape the winter in the northern hemisphere and catch the whales from Jan to May.  Avoiding this time can see you find significant bargains on resorts and vacation packages.
