If you’re looking for something away from the glitz and glitter of some of the larger hotels, it would be hard to beat the absolutely charming Waimea Plantation Cottages on Kauai.
Island plantations were the core of Hawaiian life in the 1800’s; the place where Polynesian, Asian and European influences blended to form the unique culture of contemporary Hawaii. Waimea Plantation Cottages, hidden away on the quiet, western coast of the Garden Isle of Kauai, is a nostalgic glimpse into the simple life found at a sugar plantation. Guests enjoy this unique ocean front experience unlike any other in all of the Hawaiian islands.
This cluster of authentic plantation homes, set in a peaceful coconut grove, has been carefully restored with period-inspired furniture and modern conveniences. Every Cottage has a full kitchen and a front porch overlooking the grassy lawn; each one has a personality and decor all its own.
The property features a variety of dining options. All of the cottages have a full kitchen. Your family can prepare a home-cooked meal or enjoy a BBQ on the lawn fronting your cottage. In addition to local grocery stores in Waimea, there are farmers markets that offer fresh produce; the Waimea Front Desk can provide you with a schedule. Also, located at our hotel in Kauai is Kalapaki Joe’s, which offers food and beverages from Fresh island fish to mouth-watering BBQ and live entertainment.
Property amenities include free WiFi service, free parking, gift shop and art gallery, laundry facilities, 3rd day maid service, oceanfront swimming pool, sun deck, pool bar, children’s pool, barbeque grills, hot tub, croquet, shuffleboard, horseshoes, volleyball and ping pong.
The cottages are only 28 miles from Lihue and near Waimea Canyon, one of the state’s geological wonders, sometimes referred to as “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific”. This is a very lovely resort and offers the opportunity to experience plantation home living in the most beautiful of settings that will leave you with wonderful memories.
