4331 Kauai Beach Drive, Lihue, Kauai, Hawaii

Our Thoughts on Aqua Kauai Beach Resort.
This is a really pleasant resort-style hotel in an excellent location central to all Kauai’s many interesting natural features and attractions. The whole island of Kauai has something of a comfortable, laid-back feel about it and the Aqua Kauai Beach Resort is no exception. You enter Aqua Kauai Beach Resort down an avenue of trees which provide a perfect entrance to the place and once you enter the lobby, you immediately get caught up in that relaxing, slightly old-fashioned, warm and welcoming holiday feeling for which this resort is famous.

The property faces east on a very long stretch of wild beach which is not recommended for swimming but is perfect for romantic walks at sunrise. Lydgate Beach which is a perfect swimming beach for families (has a life guard and a kids playground) is only a few minutes away, so enjoy the natural beach out front of the resort but swim a little further along the coast.

Staying at this resort you are almost walking distance from Lihue Town and the airport, although you don’t need to walk as the resort provides guests with a complimentary shuttle to town, the airport and three championship golf courses nearby. Visit the Walmart on the outskirts of town for exceptional bargains on a whole range of goods (wine and nibbles included). 

Kauai is the place to try new things.  If you have never experienced an authentic garden luau, Smiths Kauai is close by and a really worthwhile evening experience.  You’ve probably experienced the wonderful hurly-burly of Waikiki before you venture out to Kauai and may have been put off driving on the “wrong side of the road” over there, but driving on Kauai is much easier, so give it a go on Kauai, as having a car when staying here does add to the enjoyment of the island.  Kauai is also an amazing island to try a helicopter sightseeing trip around the interior mountains and valleys and the spectacular Na Pali Cliffs.

Aqua Kauai Beach Resort offers a whole range of resort services and facilities for guests which includes a choice of restaurants, a Day Spa and Salon, various retail shops, a 24 Hour Fitness Centre, 4 swimming pools, waterslide, hot tub, poolside lounges, their famous “E komo mai” guest reception on Tuesdays and nightly entertainment in Shutters Lounge to name but a few. 

The daily “Sunrise Ceremony” is another feature.  Enjoy an authentic Hawaiian ceremony to welcome the sun, lei making classes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and the regular complimentary “Welcome to Scuba” classes held in one of the resort pools.

Throughout Hawaii you will notice how friendly and welcoming the local people you encounter are with visitors.  At Aqua Kauai Beach Resort this natural friendliness is mixed with a little bit of natural country charm which adds to the delightful experience to be had when staying here.

Getting to and from Aqua Kauai Beach Resort
Aqua Kauai Beach Resort meets guests arriving at Lihue Airport and provides transfers on the short journey from/to the resort. 

Lihue Town and Lihue airport are around 3kms from the resort, Smiths Kauai Luau is 5kms away. It takes approximately 50 minutes to drive to Waimea and around an hour to Hanalei/Princeville on the north coast.  The north coast gives access to boat trips out to view the Na Pali Cliffs which are a major natural feature of Kauai.

Aqua Kauai Beach Resort provide a complimentary shuttle service between the resort and the mall in Lihue Town as well as to 3 championship golf courses nearby. 

For guests staying longer than 2 days, we recommend a rental car for at least a portion of your stay. Kauai is not a huge island and most of the major attractions are within a 1 hour drive of Aqua Kauai Beach Resort both north and south of this location.  A car will give you the opportunity to access the other delightful small towns on Kauai and to really experience the unique laid-back atmosphere of this island. This is an easy island to drive.
