Hawaii's most northerly island, Kauai, is a fascinating and often over-looked destination. Kauai is the oldest of the Hawaiian islands, and boasts spectacular natural wonders like the Waimea Canyon and the Na Pali Coast. It has rightly earned the nickname the "Garden Island" thanks to its lush rainforest coverage interspersed with waterfalls and jagged cliffs. On top of that, Kauai has the most miles of sandy coastline of any of the Hawaiian Islands.
This week, we've found a 3-night hotel stay on the south side of the island in a 4-star villa in Koloa Landing at Poipu Beach, with prices starting from $920. This deal includes a car rental for the length of your stay and comes in at $93 less than this package priced separately elsewhere.
5 Reasons to Book This 4-Star Hawaii Vacation
4-Star Villa in the "Sunny Side of Paradise"
This Wyndham Grand resort is located in the southern city of Poipu, nicknamed the "sunny side of paradise." Set on 25 acres, the resort is an oasis of lagoons and waterfalls situated just a short walk from legendary Poipu Beach, often ranked as one of the world's top beaches.
Stay in a Luxury 1-Bedroom Villa
Each 1,300-square-foot 1-bedroom villa sleeps up to four people and includes an expansive lanai (veranda). Each villa includes a full gourmet kitchen, high speed WiFi, en-suite washer and dryer, and central air.
Minutes Away From One of the Best Beaches in the World
As we mentioned earlier, Poipu Beach is often ranked as one of the best beaches in the world. If you get bored of sunning yourself on the pristine beach (unlikely!), grab some snorkeling gear and check out the water. As well as an abundance of colorful fish, you could catch sight of large honu (Hawaiian sea turtles) and even humpback whales.
Close to the National Tropical Botanical Gardens
From golf to art galleries, there's something for everyone right on the resort's doorstep. We recommend checking out the nearby National Tropical Botanical Gardens, ranked in TripAdvisor's top 10 attractions in Poipu. There is also plenty of shopping nearby at the Shops at Kukuiula and Poipu Shopping Village.
Explore the Island with a Car Rental
A 90-minute drive brings you to the number one attraction in Kauai, the Na Pali Coast, made famous by Steven Spielberg's 1993 film Jurassic Park. The nearby Waimea Canyon (ranked #2 on TripAdvisor) is a great place to hike and has breathtaking views over the Na Pali Coast.
This deal has it all: luxury accommodation in a resort paradise with the world's best beach on your doorstep and a car rental so you can explore the rest of the island at your own leisure. We must mention that the resort is under some expansion at the moment, but work will only take place from 9 am to 5:30 pm.
