The deluxe Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation is located on the beach at sunny Poipu on Kauai's southern shore. This picture-perfect oasis by the sea is made up of elegant, low-rise condominiums with accents reminiscent of Hawaii's 19th-century plantation past. Spacious one- and two-bedroom condominium apartments are located in 42 buildings throughout the property. Each is tastefully furnished with a living and dining area, complete kitchen, ceiling fans, and a private lanai. These casual Poipu villas are shaded by tall, swaying palms, and scented by fragrant plumeria blossoms.

The atmosphere is relaxed and carefree. The property's lush 35 acres are landscaped with tropical plantings and foliage, an extensive, internationally recognized orchid and succulent garden, and many relaxing water features. A pristine stretch of sand invites you to swim and snorkel in the clear blue Pacific.

Shopping and dining options are conveniently located across the street at the Poipu Shopping Village, or nearby in historic Koloa Town. The challenging Kiahuna and Poipu Bay golf courses are just minutes away by car.

    My friend and I took a trip to Kauai in June, 2019. We had booked the Westin in Princeville for our 12 day trip, but wanted to stay one night at a hotel in the Poipu area since it's a bit of a drive. We went on Priceline to find something quickly and viewed the Kiahuna and the Waimea Plantation. They were both equally priced but since we wanted to be closer to Poipu we went with the Kiahuna. $171.39 for the night, $44.59 in taxes...$215.98 total. Okay, we can swing that. We booked it and BOOM...our total was $375.98! They tacked on an additional $160 for cleaning. WHAT!? We went back through the booking process again to see if we had missed that it said that, and we did. So, yes, totally our fault because we missed that during the booking process on Priceline. Read the find print. However, we called the hotel to ask if we could cancel (2 minutes after reserving it). They said they couldn't cancel it, couldn't do anything about the fee, it is what it is. I understand if someone is staying at this place for a few days, a week, etc. But, one night? A fee that costs just as much as the room, and not one person at the hotel who has the authority to do anything about it? Also, when we showed up, the unit we were in was NOT CLEAN. It was pretty old and kind of beat up. At least we had a good laugh about it. Bottom line, beware of the cleaning fee, especially if you're only staying for one night, and I definitely recommend requesting an upgraded unit.

    Kiahuna Plantation is unique and beautiful

    We’ve stayed at KP 10 times now. We rent from a private owner in building 23, which doesn’t have an ocean view but is in a great location. It’s in the middle of the property with a view of the twin bridges off the lanai and the lagoon from the the front lanai. KP is just beautiful. I love the Old Hawaii feel vs. newly built condo resorts. The gardens are breathtaking, especially by the Plantation Gardens restaurant. We’ve rarely felt the need for AC as the buildings are built to catch the trades and block the sun. It also helps if the building you stay in only gets morning sun. I think my idea of heaven is a day on a lounge chair on the lawn with multiple trips to swim in the best beach on south shore. We swam and snorkeled right in front of KP and luckily saw several turtles. I prefer snorkeling there over Poipu Beach Park as it’s not as crowded and the water is deeper. I’d gladly give up AC to have that beach at my doorstep. We do keep the condo fans running while inside. The pool area has really been updated with the somewhat new owners. The workout area is very nice and clean and they have yoga and other classes every morning for a small fee. Much is said about the pool being across the street so I decided to time the walk this year. From building 23 to putting my towel on the lounge chair took 7 1/2 minutes. Really not long walk at all. You do have to cross Poipu Rd. but it isn’t that busy and most people stop when they see you in the crosswalk. KP is also in walking distance to many restaurants and we had a wonderful meal at Plantation Gardens to celebrate our birthdays. I can’t wait for our 11th stay. 🌺

    Tropical oasis

    Set in massive tropical gardens and manicured lawns, a stroll down to the glorious beach, meandering along paths between numerous building containing 10 or 15 apartments, small and large ponds, one gets the impression of a botanic wonderland. The apartments, although dated and lacking air con. are very quiet and comfortable. Maybe in the heat of the wet season the air con may be missed. The strangest thing, though, was the cleaning charge, over and above the room rate. And we opted for the minimal cleaning level where the towels change after 2 days was the only cleaning done to our apartment! Go figure. All in all, a most convenient location and a beautiful place to stay.

    NIce enough property. Bummer policies.

    Yesterday, on 6/3 I checked into my reserved room at Kiahuna Plantation. I got my room from Chase Saphhire Rewards program, which has been very nice. Anyhow, I checked into my $184.50 room with $22.08 in taxes and fees I had paid with miles. This often means I either will get no charges or maybe a resort fee. I checked in and was charged $160 cleaning fee and $25 destination fee on top of the $206.58 I had already paid, which seemed steep when compared to all the previous properties I have purchased with my Chase miles. Additionally, it seemed odd that an $184.50 room needs $160 in cleaning after one night. Maybe after 10 nights it needs more, but as someone who gets my house cleaned, this seems excessive. Granted it is Hawaii. One of the women working at check in made a few things clear. One was that she herself had no ability to make any adjustments, decisions or changes. Additionally, that I would be charged whether I stayed in the room or not. Lastly, the owner's will charge me because they could have rented the room to someone else. (Interesting). To this, I think if the building caught on fire or someone committed suicide, they would find someone in management with decision making abilities, but since it was just a $160 fee they screw people with all day, I needed to suck it up and get out of their office so they could screw the next customer. She said I had to wait until the next day when the General Manager would be on the property, which meant stay in the room and have no ability to say I am happy to leave your property. As mentioned previously, she said they would have to charge me anyway because they were loosing the opportunity to rent it to someone else. Maybe not true, but I don't have this information. Of course it is possible that this large facility is full, but the quietness of my room and emptiness in the parking lot suggest otherwise, near building #40. I don't have proof and don't care if it is or isn't full, because what about the customer? When did they decide in the hospitality industry that it is better to screw people with unwarranted fees and ruin the experience? This is a perfectly nice room on the third floor, in the middle of the building, farthest from the beach and beside the road. I can hear car traffic in the bed, but more importantly, I am seen as a walking wallet that should shut up, pay up and get the hell out. In the staffs' minds, I'm at fault because I am the customer and not the owner. This is the first day of my trip to Kauai this time. I was here about ten years ago. After landing, getting my car and water, I hiked Waimea canyon which is very nice. The curvy road is fun to drive. All was well in my world until I came to Kiahuna Plantation Resort. You have choices when you pick a property and if you decide to stay here, you might want to find out about all the fees. Additionally, you might want to find out how far you are from the beach if you care. You might want to know how far you are from the road. You might want to know if the room has air conditioning. This one bedroom room has a full kitchen, which is pretty awesome, but apparently it costs something like $160 to clean, even if you don't use it. I have no plans to use it, but I get the joy of paying for it. I wonder why they don't make this a $360 room? They will keep the riff raff off the premises and get the money they want. Win win.

    Great view from our third floor corner room! Furniture and items are a bit dated

    My family booked a room here through Air Bnb. The room was one bedroom (king bed), good sized bathroom (which included sink outside the shower/toilet area), nice size living room, small but useful kitchen, dining table and chairs, and outside balcony/patio had a table for 4 and also two lounge/lay down chairs. Room was a bit dated furniture wise and bed coverings, but overall taken care of well. It was nice to have a kitchen! Also had pullout couch!
