7 best resorts on Kauai
If you’re looking for the best resorts on Kauai, you’re probably torn between the Poipu area and the Hanalei area. I have compiled a list of the 7 best resorts on Kauai. Two are located on the beautiful North Shore, and four are located in the sunny resort area of Poipu. One is also in Lihue (where the airport is located, also on the south side) and one honorable mention in Kapa’a.
I always tell people not to shy away from Kauai in the winter. Yes, it rains more often, but not everywhere! Even on the North Shore, it does not rain all day every day. You’ll find plenty of sunshine in Poipu in the winter if that is a concern. It is important to note that the road just north of Hanalei is still closed due to mudslides that happened in 2018. I will update this once that is open again. That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t stay in the area, but simply that some of the North Shore attractions, such as the Kalalau trail, are still closed.
