The Sheraton Kauai Resort
The Sheraton Kauai Resort is a fairly recent addition to the chain having been established in 1997. The resort is very atmospheric and has an old Hawaii feel with shell chandeliers hanging from the ceilings in the lobby. The resort's buildings are situated on both the mountain and beach side of the road.
There are three buildings available with rooms overlooking the fabulous tropical gardens or the rolling expanse of the ocean. The rooms feature a/c, fridge, coffee maker, hair dryer, iron and data porting facilities.
Located in the Poipu area on the south point of the island, The Sheraton is at the top end of the market in terms of price and amenities. It is a popular location for those that lust after the perfect wedding venue, and offer a few wedding packages for those looking to get married on the island.
The beach on which the resort is situated is stunning and is one of the best beaches on Kauai. Due to the presence of an off-shore reef the beach is protected from rough waters and is ideal for swimming. Those who have come to experience surfing in Kauai should stay inside the reef to be on the safe side, but the more experienced seem to find the best waves outside the reef. Other water activities available are boogie boarding (a board that you lie on rather than stand) and snorkeling. Water sport equipment can be hired in the resort.
The bar is worth a visit even if you are not staying here. It features wonderful views, Hawaiian music and cocktails with a nearby golf course. There are free meals for kids, provided they are accompanied by an adult at the Shell Restaurant, one of the Sheraton's three restaurants. Other services provided by the Sheraton Kauai Resort are: Internet access, continental breakfast, tennis courts, two outdoor pools, a shopping centre, two golf courses in the near vicinity, a fitness centre, a laundry service and a shuttle service to Koloa, an old town which is now a tourist attraction. There are plenty of activities for children including a pool for kids and a game room. A babysitting service is available to give tired parents and much-needed break to spend time on their own. In addition to the room charge, there is an amenities fee and a charge for extra people. Credit card payments are accepted.
