Poipu Kai – Relaxing in Style

I’ve stayed in some nice 4- and 5-star hotels and condos before. But nothing quite as meticulously clean and well-thought-out as The Villas at Poipu Kai.

When I arrived in the villa, light Hawaiian jazz was playing on the stereo.

The lights were on, turned down low, as if the villa apartment was setting the mood.

Orchid blossoms were strategically scattered around, calling my attention to amenities like the personalized guest information book, shampoo & soap setups in the bathrooms, and even a bottle of scented moisturizer next to the kitchen sink.

How could it get any better?

It depends what you’re into. The walk-in closet off the master bath would certainly have space for the bride’s wedding dress.

If you’ve moved past that stage and on to the next, the rock-formation-style pool and hot tub will be a favorite of the rugrats:

The floral style of the resort was visible at every turn in the Villas, and all throughout the Poipu Kai community of resorts. Right outside my door I found these:

I’ve never even seen this flower before:

This lovely couple made me realize: Poipu Kai is the perfect place to be in love!

This resort is not a place for adventure seekers who will be driving around the island for all-day, every-day activities, and just need a place to sleep. If you did that, you’d miss out on the amazing vibe of Poipu Kai!

The Villas is a place for: Families. Couples. Relaxation. Easy beach access. A beautiful day sunning by the pool. Barbecuing on the (big, stainless steel) grills by said pool. Drinking Happy Hour Mai Tais at Brennecke’s by the beach, just a five minute walk away. Taking a short ride down to Papalani’s for a delicious Kauaian gelato. Bodyboarding at the beach (or doing any number of other sports) with equipment from The Villas’ storerooms. Sleeping on a big, soft mattress, surrounded by all the pillows you could eat.

Do you get the idea? You’ll leave this place recharged, ready to face the world again. I certainly did, even after just two days. Imagine what a week at The Villas at Poipu Kai would do for you!

If you want to read more about the Poipu area, tune in tomorrow for views of the awesome beaches and the Spouting Horn. Yeah, you know you’re curious now – what the h#&$ is a spouting horn!?
