Discover Poipu Beach's newest playground at the 391-room Sheraton Kauai Resort. A $16 million revitalization has brought new energy to the guest experience at this 20-acre retreat. A modern, refurbished entry leads to the beautifully landscaped open-air Ocean Courtyard lounge. Adorned with tiki torches and six conversation areas - three with fire pits - it's the perfect spot for cocktails under the stars.

Sheraton Kauai Resort's 391 rooms, including its 11 suites, are housed in eight buildings no higher than a mature coconut tree. Grouped together in three different locations, the room categories are identified according to their primary view: Garden Wing, Ocean Wing, and Beach Wing.

The expanded, multi-level pool sits just above the beach and is lined with eight private cabanas equipped with chaise lounges, a flat-screen TV, and ceiling fan. Lava's on Poipu Beach, the resort's new open-air restaurant and beach bar, is just steps away from the pool and ocean. Rum Fire is the island's newest hot spot, serving up nearly 180-degree ocean views from all 240 seats. The innovative Rum Fire menu features Hawaiian cuisine with global influences.

Kauai is a wonderland of outdoor activity and adventure, and Sheraton Kauai Resort serves as your base camp. Naturally, given the perfect oceanfront location, you will find unlimited beach activities right outside your door. Scuba and snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, and beach cabanas are available at the Activity Center adjacent to the Ocean Pool. The resort offers two swimming pools: a brand new oceanfront pool and a tranquil garden pool. You also have access to a fitness center and a news/internet library. Excellent shopping and numerous local attractions are within walking distance.

    Nice resort....few things to know

    There are some negative reviews here, let me clear a few things up..... 1. we came here as part of a Sheraton Vacation Ownership Package. upon check in, we asked for a two bed room, and were upgraded to the ocean wing (not ocean view, just the ocean side). Room was fine and suited our needs. clean and well maintained...since we didn't spend much time in the room, it didn't matter to us.

    Exceeded all expectations

    We had an amazing time at Sheraton Poipu. This review is coming to you as I am laying out by the pool overlooking the beautiful ocean. We got an oceanfront room and it was totally worth it. The hotel itself is squire sprawled out via 2 main building wings. The grounds are very nicely maintained. The room itself is fairly spacious and well appointed. Large sliding door and balcony facing the ocean is the highlight of the room. Small touches also makes the stay comfortable. Very quiet fridge and Ac system, drawstring in the tub to hang dry our swim stuff are really nice touch. The pool is not huge but does the job and workout center has very state of the art machines (but is always empty since most like to jog outside with scenery I think) . The beach that fronts the hotel is very picturesque- very strong waves. Not suitable for frolicking with small kids but awesome for body boarding . Warning , no lifeguards and the waves are super strong so you will get a beating. However Poipu beach park is only 3 minutes drive and is super kid friendly and soooo much fish and turtles. You can see tons even without snorkel gear since the water is so protected and calm and clear. Lastly, The staff are all very friendly. Only 2 minor complaints are : 1) wifi is pretty weak and cuts out from time to time. (By design maybe so you can disconnect and actually enjoy vacation? ) 2) the parking is a little odd because there’s no system to prevent non guest to park so you may have to park in street from time to time. Overall what a great stay at the Sheraton. Kauai is so amazing. Loved this island!

    4 stars not 5

    We booked an ocean view room and were not disappointed. It was a great spot to spend my partner's special birthday. Walking distance to a few restaurants. Due to timing, we booked a luau at the Grand Hyatt - worked out well, a short uber trip there and back. We didn't give it 5 stars because there was something holding it back... unsure what is was, maybe we were expecting a bit more luxury for the price? Seriously, a great place to stay on Kauai, glad we did.

    Terrific Front Desk Personnel

    We were greeted very warmly by Sissy at the front desk while checking in. She took all our information and gave us a room that exceeded our expectations. The room was clean modern and spacious, located on the first floor within steps of the ocean. There is a café for coffee, quick breakfast sandwiches, bagels etc., several great restaurants and entertainment. There is a very nice fitness room, well maintained grounds and an over the top staff to cater to your every need. The hotels location on Poipu beach offers beautiful views of the sunset.
