Poipu Plantation Resort
Old-school Hawaiian style welcomes guests on a popular Kauai beach.
Built in 1938, this non-smoking, plantation-style inn is one of the oldest properties on Poipu Beach, offering romantic, historical accommodations at very reasonable rates. This is one of those relatively unknown lodgings that captures the true spirit of aloha. It is made up of a plantation house and cottages, located in a quiet neighborhood with ocean, mountain and garden views. Accommodations feature hardwood floors, tropical-style furniture, air-conditioning, ceiling fans, local artwork and private lanais. The honeymoon suite has a wet bar, whirlpool bath and partial ocean views, and all of the nine cottages come with full kitchens. For guests staying in one of the four bed-and-breakfast suites, a tropical breakfast is served on a screened lanai, the perfect start to a day spent relaxing on the beach or hiking in Waimea Canyon.
