Castle Kaha Lani Resort
- What's Included
We had an excellent stay over the New Years weekend. Kaha Lani It is not crowded with tourist, giving you a great taste of the quiet side of the island.We rented a one bedroom, 1 ½ bath ocean front condo. All the units have a full kitchen, which was convenient as it saved us a ton of dining-out money. There were enough pots, pans, glasses, silverware and appliances to make about anything. It would be no problem for a family of four to fit here comfortably. As there were only two of us it was the lap of luxury. The wifi was free and fast and the cable tv had almost everything we needed for the times that the sun was down and you couldn’t stare at the waves. There is no air conditioning, but there were ceiling fans as well as table fans that helped out the cool winds that came off the ocean 90% of the time. Since we were on the third floor we always kept the windows on the ocean side open except for the couple of hours of direct sun. We decided to sleep in the living room on the fold out bed instead of the back bedroom which was a little stuffy. Drifting off to sleep listening to the wave’s crash was much preferable. Speaking of sleeping; as with most of Kauai the Roosters are everywhere, so if you do not want to be awakened at 4 AM every day, you will need earplugs and miss listening to the waves. Where is Colonel Sanders when you need him? The large balcony overlooked a lawn, bike path (which I believe goes all the way to Kapaa) and the ocean. There is a table, chairs and two loungers provided. Kaha Lani’s staff were excellent. I talked with the front desk staff multiple times and they were nothing but accommodating and friendly every time. The maintenance staff came by after repairing a broken chair and was very friendly as well. The resort is located between two parks, so if you have kids there are multiple playgrounds and a low wave lagoon a short walk away. There were even small fish for the kids to do mini-snorkeling. Right in front of the resort the beach that is too rough for swimming, but the beach combing was great. There is a small pool as well. The resort provides beach towels daily. There is a laundry room which was helpful as it allowed us to pack less. You need a car to get to the town of Kapaa, a couple miles away as there is no restaurant here. My wife is Vegan, and the town has multiple places to eat with a restricted diet as well as multiple vegan/vegetarian grocery stores. Do your research before you book as there are cleaning fees, but we had no surprises on our bill. We cannot wait to come back.
We just returned as a family from a few days in kauai. First off, the grounds and the management were impeccable. They were accommodating for a late check in and unusual check out. The condo was clean and bug free. That said, the condo was dated. It was showing its rental age. The queen bed was hard and the pillows were worse. The two twins weren’t any better. We consistently rent condos or houses because of needing a kitchen and while I understand it’s a rental the dated “pull out” rattan couch was more comfortable than the bed. The grounds, staff, and security was amazing. The condo itself was the opposite end of disappointing.
Really enjoyed this clean, quiet condo on Kauai's south shore. Because the highway does not circle the island, this was a great location to visit both of Kauai's major tourist attractions (Waimea Canyon and Kalalau trail). In addition, very close to Waimea Falls and Sleeping Giant. The hotel was clean and and tidy, located off the busy main road. Eventhough access to the ocean in front of the condo was not kid friendly, there is an amazing path to the statepark adjacent to the grounds. Definitely recommend staying here to other guests. Nothing you can do about the noisy roosters except to embrace there presence.
Gorgeous location with ample opportunities for beachwalking, safe snorkeling at adjacentL Lydgate Park, and lounging by the pool in a well groomed landscape.More updated properties with full kitchens and Wi-Fi than when we first came. Adjacent refurbished hotel (now Hilton Garden) provides drink/dinner options a modest walk from this self-catering property.A splendid scenic location with walking distance kid friendly 0cean pools, golf course etc.
Our family of 4 stayed in a 2 bedroom condo 108. It directly faces the swimming pool (20 steps away) and has full ocean view. You can hear the ocean falling asleep. The furnishing are dated and could use updating but everything is fine and functional. The grounds are well kept and groomed. The location is convenient to get around the island. Lydgate beach park is no more than a 5 minute stroll on the boardwalk. Watch out for rip tides but the beach has a protect area that is great for little kids. Staff is nice and welcoming. For groceries we went to Foodland (they have at least 6 different kinds of poke there!) and our fav local eatery is Chicken in Barrel in Kapaa (15 min drive). Some of our favourite beaches were Poipu Beach (it has a protected cove for little kids) and Shipwreck Beach (white sand and aqua water). We did go to Hanalei Bay (an hour drive) but it was rainy so couldn't fully enjoy the beautiful scenery. And be prepared to see chickens. Can't miss them. They're everywhere. Good stay overall.
