Adult Luxury

Phoenix, Arizona

We stayed here three nights based on the very favorable reviews that we had read from others. Koa Kea certainly is a luxury hotel, and it is a very comfortable place for adult couples. We had an oceanfront room with a small balcony, and it was just 50 or so feet from the ocean itself. In between is a public walkway, so while the view is great, your privacy is somewhat limited. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very well appointed, but they seem small despite their fairly large square footage. That’s because ceiling heights are low (I am 5’11” and I had no problem touching the bedroom ceiling, and the ceiling in the hallway area is even shorter. So if you are really tall, this may not be the place for you. Be sure to leave your young kids at home too, since they won’t be able to reach over the bathroom sink without you lifting them up. I have posted a picture with this review so you can see what I am referring to (the second picture is our ocean view) The fitness room is very well equipped (e.g. new elliptical machines with built-in TV’s), and a nice extra are the ice cold towels in a fridge at the door which help refresh after a good workout. Every room also has a built-in, bar-size fridge which came in handy for us.

Best Kauai Experience

Los Angeles

We stayed 7nts for my 60th at Koa Kea and absolutely loved everything. We were extremely pleased with room 222 and the balcony with a stunning ocean view set perfectly near the lobby,pool,valet and beach. Koa Kea exudes aloha hospitality starting our day with aloha greetings from the best valets anywhere,Beverly Hills valets take notice,the breakfast outstanding,omelettes made to order. We began our day with a run/walks on Lawai Rd via the Kiahuna resort a short cut then follow surf school sign.The resort sits right on the ocean between 2 amazing beautiful beaches steps away. Waichol beach with calm waters for swimming and snorkeling(beautiful fish) and Kiahuna beach for surf and swimmingwith Poipu beach park just 1 minute walk away.We had a car so getting around to any restaurant took 2 minutes we also ate dinner at Red Salt our last night and it surpassed our expectations delicious. Also sushi in the bar was first rate and excellent. Thanks to Cindy at reception for always having a smile and meeting all our needs. Lastly we booked a Napali snorkeling catamaran tour that was breathtakingly beautiful with captain Andy thru the hotel and the price was same thing everywhere so thank you concierge. If you want an amazing relaxing fun beach vacation Koa Kea is that resort also we met wonderful people by the beautiful pool from all over. We can't wait to go back!
