How it Ranks: Koa Kea Hotel & Resort ranks #1 out of 172 Kauai Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.

Our Take: For peace and quiet, it's hard to beat the Koa Kea Hotel & Resort. Opting for quality rather than quantity, the property hosts 121 rooms on a spectacular portion of Po'ipu Beach amidst fierce competition from larger brand-name resorts nearby. The Koa Kea's design is more urban-chic than easy-going tropical, with guest rooms sporting contemporary furnishings, as well as high-tech amenities like flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and high-speed Internet access. But visitors find plenty of relaxing solitude here: Not only do accommodations boast private lanais (balconies), but the Koa Kea Hotel also houses an intimate spa (with only five treatment rooms), a lagoon-style swimming pool and easy access to the beach. According to previous guests, another perk of staying at this boutique hotel is Red Salt; the hotel's restaurant showcases Hawaiian cuisine in an intimate setting. And the staff is very accommodating and personable; so don't hesitate to ask for anything from more linens to directions to the closest hiking trail.
