Very family-friendly hotel
Only one restaurant on-site
The spacious Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort is one of Kauai's best options for families. The resort hosts spacious suites that include one- or two-bedrooms, ample living space and full kitchens. According to many recent guests, the Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort has all the comforts of home — with a few extras thrown in. Although you can certainly do your own cooking, you can also forgo dish duty in favor of a fresh seafood meal at the Oasis on the Beach restaurant. Meanwhile, the waterslides, lazy river and man-made beach are fun enough to draw you and your kids away from the beach. And the in-house Spa by the Sea offers a wide range of Hawaiian-inspired massages and body treatments. You should also note that the Outrigger's isolated location in Kapaa can be either refreshing or frustrating.

Critic Reviews


At the Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort, the extravagance starts (and almost ends) in the rooms. The beautifully decorated one- and two-bedroom suites are among the most luxurious in Kauai.



Although its namesake beach is not good for swimming, kids and quite a number of adults are happy to spend all day in the heated fantasy pool here; it stretches across 2 acres with a lazily flowing river, sandy-bottomed hot tubs and children’s pool, twin water slides, and waterfalls, amid lush landscaping.
