The Palmwood was exactly what we were looking for: somewhere off the beaten path that was private, quiet, serene, and relaxing! The breakfasts each morning whether prepared by Cindy or Edi were perfectly prepared with sweet and savory goodness from local product! The rooms were clean and the property absolutely beautiful. The staff was very helpful and gave us wonderful...

My husband and I are so thankful that we chose to stay at the Palmwood for our honeymoon. We wanted to stay somewhere that was quiet, intimate, and relaxing and the Palmwood is that and so much more. We kept very busy and active during the daytime, and the Palmwood was the perfect place to relax and rest at night....

The Palmwood truly deserves the accolades it has received. The service is unmatched, the details placed into each accommodation are particular and in good taste, and the surrounding views are spectacular! Cindy is such a great chef that my husband and I looked forward to breakfast every morning. The owners weren't around but the place was in good hands with...

We were looking for something more intimate than a big resort and The Palmwood exceeded our expectations on every level. The accommodations are beautiful and quite comfortable, breakfast each morning was delicious and the location is convenient for going north or south. Eddie was a gracious host and we hope to stay again!!

If you're not a resort person but still would like to experience the beauty of Kauai, then the Palmwood's the place for you. It was very quiet and relaxing. I stayed in the west room which had a very relaxing water feature on it's private lanai. It also had a hot tub which came in very handy after a long...

My husband and I live in NYC. In general, we are very down-to-earth individuals but when it comes to food, travel, and hotels we are as difficult-to-please as they come. That said, it's not just luxury and opulence that we appreciate, no that's way too easy. When we travel we look for uniquely exotic and spectacular though highly tasteful experiences,...

We had an amazing experience at the Palmwood, from beginning to end. During pre-booking, Eddi was very responsive and informative. She showed some flexibility in helping us book our stay. Once confirmed, she provided detailed directions on how to locate the property and alerted us that GPS didn't work very well on the island (truth!). She also connected us with...

We felt we had to go back a second time to the garden island Kauai and of course to the beautiful Palmwood. We absolutely love it! This time we stayed for 7 nights, in the same nice room as last year. We feel at home here now. If it was not so far away, we live in Sweden, we would...

Only second review written by me, and first one I have given positive feedback on. Beautiful place with wonderful room. So peaceful. Kind and wonderful owners. Would absolutely highly recommend, and have in fact to my Uncle going to Kauai for the first time in a month.

This place was absolutely incredible. Beautiful room, beautiful grounds, delicious food, ideal location...AND YOUR OWN LITTLE HOT TUB!! Plus Mychael was great at giving us recommendations for what to do on the island. While the weather could've been better during our stay, The Palmwood made the trip an incredible experience. I would ONLY recommend staying here to anyone looking to...
