The 3-star oceanfront Castle Kaha Lani Resort is nestled in a lush tropical rain forest featuring one- and two-bedroom condominiums that either front the ocean or have a view of it. Bordered by a golf course on one side and the ocean on the other, the Kaha Lani features two and three story plantation style wood buildings, with stairs – but as always on the island of Kauai, it is worth the climb up for the views alone. The condos are all non-smoking.
Property amenities include illuminated tennis courts, putting green with sand traps, laundry facilities, heated swimming pool, sun deck, barbeque area, complimentary parking and more. There is a sandy beach, but quite often the water is too rough for swimming, but on the north side of the resort is Lydgate County Park with a lifeguard, excellent safe swimming, a wide beach, large playground for children and picnic tables.
While there are no on-site restaurants, just two miles north is the Coconut Marketplace with quite a few lounges and restaurants and further along the road is a large Safeway Grocery store where you can pick up supplies to stock your kitchen. The charming town of Kapa’a is a little further along the road and also has a number of popular restaurants.
Kaha Lani means “Heavenly Place” in Hawaiian and the name certainly fits this property. It gets wonderful reviews from guests and has many return visitors. Again, this is a resort for those who want to get away from all the commercialism and stresses of everyday life. Enjoy time to relax on your lanai. Watch the waves, make a wish on a star, sip on a cocktail and chat with the one you love – isn’t that what vacations are supposed to be about?
