U.S. News Review

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.
