    For peace and quiet, it's hard to beat the Koa Kea Hotel & Resort. 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 easygoing tropical, with guest rooms sporting contemporary furnishings and amenities like flat-screen TVs, high-speed internet access, espresso machines and iPod docking stations. 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, lava-inspired swimming pool, an oceanfront lawn with firepits and direct access to the beach. As for dining, there is the Red Salt, which showcases Hawaiian cuisine in an intimate setting. And according to recent guests, the staff is accommodating and personable; so don't hesitate to ask for anything from more linens to directions to the closest hiking trail.

    Some say the Grand Hyatt's exceptional staff will make you feel right at home. However, your home probably doesn't have immaculately kept tropical grounds, a sand-bottomed lagoon pool or a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. This resort treats Kauai travelers to a relaxed getaway, with guest rooms outfitted with flat-screen TVs, Nespresso machines and private lanais (balconies). But you'll likely not be spending much time indoors, as the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort offers plenty in the way of island activities. On the property, you'll find several pools and lagoons worth laying by, as well as a variety of cultural performances taking place on any given day. Visitors enjoy indulging at the Anara Spa and teeing off on the gorgeous Po'ipu Bay Golf Course. And when it comes to dining, travelers say you really can't go wrong with the Grand Hyatt's restaurants, which serve up a variety of cuisines ranging from Hawaiian to Asian to Italian. The Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa is along the south coast of Kauai, east of Po'ipu Beach. Members of the World of Hyatt rewards program can earn and redeem points here, which helps offset the pricey hotel's nightly room rates.

    Sitting pretty on Kauai's southeastern coast near the popular Po'ipu Beach, this resort earns rave reviews from recent guests for its spacious studios and villas (studios start at 475 square feet). Rooms feature up to four bedrooms and include full kitchens or kitchenettes, flat-screen TVs and oversized balconies. Though lodgers praise the roomy accommodations, recent guests had some complaints when it came to housekeeping services. When you're not lounging in your digs, you'll find plenty of resort activities to keep you occupied, including volleyball, soccer and snorkeling. If you've got kids in tow, take your brood to the new 350,000-gallon Signature Lagoon Pool, which recently opened in the spring of 2017. For a more peaceful dip, head to the adults-only Tranquility Waterfall Pool. For more pampering, book an appointment at the spa or join in on complimentary yoga. And now that this sprawling resort is a member of the Marriott family, Marriot Bonvoy members can earn or redeem points by choosing to stay here.

Guest rooms here feature wood furnishings, flat-screen TVs, Internet access and private lanais (balconies).

This Sheraton property earns praise from travelers for its scenic surroundings and its ample amenities. The resort boasts two swimming pools (guests say that the oceanfront pool is worth a swim), as well as a fitness center and the full-service Hawaiian Rainforest Spa. Also on the property is the fancy RumFire restaurant specializing in Hawaiian cuisine. For an exciting taste of the islands, the Sheraton invites you to attend the 'Auli'i Lu'au, held weekly.
