Booked 7 night of an ocean front room. This place is amazing. It is small and intimate. The room was great from the feather pillows to the rain shower in the bathroom. The breakfasts were decadant and had many options. Red Salt is expensive but food was great. The hot tub was a better option ... the pool water was...

We stayed at Koa Kea resort for seven nights in March 2013. The check-in process was smooth and we got the room that we reserved without a hitch. The location is on the south side of the island, in Poipu. The south side is drier so the weather was generally ok. The resort has its own beach access, which is...

My husband, 15 year old daughter and I just spent several nights at the Koa Kea for spring break and thought the hotel was just perfect. We loved the smaller size of the hotel, the perfect location on Poipu beach and the elegantly appointed decor. The hotel is of modern decor with an Asian/Hawaiian twist finished with lots of dark...

My husband and I stayed here over 4 nights. After arriving early, we asked if there was a possibility of getting our room before 3pm check in (as we arrived at 10am). Reception staff told us to wait by the pool and that they would call us if they had a room ready. We waited until 3pm and still no...

My husband and I absolutely love this place and highly recommend it. We've stayed here twice and both times it exceeded our expectations, especially with the extraordinary level of service. By day 2 of our trip, the staff knew who we were, remembered what we liked for breakfast, knew what we liked to drink at the bar, and had our...

I started 10 months ago looking for a resort and was struggling finding a good fit for my husband & I. Then I came across the Koa Kea on Tripadvisor and what a treasure we found. Even the negative reviews were what we were looking for in a place to stay. Upon arrival the ENTIRE staff was so friendly, helpful...

From the moment of our checking into Ko'a Kea, I knew we had arrived at some place very special! After 3 plane rides, 20 hours of travel time and a mix up at the car rental place we arrived late to the hotel at about 9 o'clock pm. From our 1st greeting with the friendly valet staff continuing on to...

The room was beautiful and comfortable. The bed was like heaven. We had a lovely patio area outside our patio doors. The hotel grounds are stunning. We used the hottub every night and pool a bit since the ocean was rough. There was a stunning beach out front of the hotel and you could walk to other beaches from the...

Everything about Koa Kea is extraordinary, but the level of service from the staff is above and beyond exceptional. Everyone was professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and friendly - we could not have asked for a better experience. From the minute we arrived at the bell desk until the minute we drove (sadly) away on our way to the airport, everyone was...

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon in March 2013. We booked through Luxury Link which included daily breakfast. The rooms are wonderful - nice size and loved the lanai, the featherbeds are heavenly (and i'm missing the nightly turndown service!), the views are wonderful.
