Garden by the sea
Steps from sandy Poipu Beach—one of the loveliest in Hawaii—this Kauai condominium resort stands amid 35 acres of lushly landscaped gardens, including renowned Moir Gardens.
Situated on a former plantation dotted with water-lily ponds, the resort blends "Old Hawaii" charm with modern pleasures: beach activity center, and restaurants.
Lanais and kitchens
Castle Kiahuna's 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom suites feature large furnished lanais, garden or ocean views, and full kitchens. All suites are smoke-free and naturally cooled.
The Kiahuna Plantation offers guests an opportunity to experience, in contemporary comfort, the 19th-century Hawaiian era of sugar plantations and prim missionaries. Widely spaced on 33 acres of natural grounds and interspersed with gardens and lava-rock ponds, 42 white plantation-style buildings face Poipu Beach, once declared by the world's foremost expert as America's best. Access to upper floors is by outside stairs, not elevators. Complimentary wireless Internet access is available near the front desk. The Castle Kiahuna is the only management company on the property that offers daily housekeeping.
Landscaped grounds include a cactus garden, traditional Hawaiian garden, large orchids, and even water lily ponds. Guests have access to a lagoon, and barbecue areas.
The front desk can arrange golf outings, helicopter sightseeing trips, luaus, and all other activities available on Kauai; the desk can also rents out videotapes and arrange massage sessions. A beach hut rents out snorkel sets and boogie boards, and provides complimentary towels and beach chairs.

Plantation Gardens Restaurant - Hailed as one of Hawaii's best, this spacious restaurant occupies much of the Kiahuna Plantation's original manor house. The manor was a 1930 wedding gift to Alexandra "Sandie" Knudsen and Hector Moir from her father, who inherited Hawaii's first (1835) sugar plantation from his parents. Walls display photographs chronicling plantation history. Under ceiling fans, dining is inside or on a wraparound veranda overlooking gardens and ponds. Wood floors and big wicker chairs evoke an earlier era and slower-paced atmosphere. The shaded bar has its own veranda. Diners are attracted by inventive, contemporary Hawaiian fare featuring local fish and other items.
