The lush Garden Isle of Kauai has lodgings for every taste, from 5 star Kauai hotels and resorts to rustic cabins, and from family-friendly condos to romantic bed-and-breakfasts. The most discriminating traveler can also find affordable places that are convenient, safe, and accessible to Kauai's special places and activities.
When you're choosing a place to stay, location is an important consideration. Kauai may seem small on a map, but because it's circular with no through roads, it can take more time than you think to get from place to place. If at all possible, stay close to your desired activities. This way, you'll save time to fit in all the things you'll want to do.
Time of year is also a factor. If you're here in Winter or Spring, consider staying on the South Shore, as the surf on the North Shore and East Side can be relatively rough, making the ocean beaches unsafe for swimming or water sports.
Before booking accommodations, think about the kind of experience you want to have for your Hawaii island vacation. There are several top-notch resorts to choose from, and Kauai also has a wide variety of condos, vacation rentals, and bed-and-breakfasts. The Kauai Visitors Bureau provides a comprehensive listing of accommodation choices to help you decide.
