Kauai Accommodations

From the moment you arrive on Kauai, the enchanting scenery and generous aloha spirit welcome you. Whether you seek posh cliffside digs with five-star service, a quaint country B&B or a private vacation rental for the whole family, the Garden Isle has a remarkable range of accommodations waiting to be your home away from home. In fact, the hardest part of staying on Kauai is knowing you’ll have to leave at some point.

Three main regions possess the majority of Kauai’s accommodations—the North Shore, East Coast and South Shore. In the towns of Princeville and Hanalei on the North Shore, luxury resorts like the St. Regis and Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas are plentiful, with dining, golf and spa facilities to rival the finest in the world. 

The more densely populated East Coast (also known as the Coconut Coast) and South Shore offer a wide variety of hotels, resorts and affordable vacation rentals, plus family-friendly beaches ideal for keiki (kids). And while accommodations are more limited on Kauai’s West Side, inns and plantation cottages in the charming towns of Waimea and Hanapepe offer convenient access to natural wonders like Waimea Canyon and Kokee State Park—perfect for travelers wanting to get the most out of Kauai’s incredible landscapes.
