“Privacy in paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

The Palmwood was the perfect place to unwind after our destination wedding on the Big Island. It was just what we were looking for - privacy, relaxation, and a unique experience that we probably would not have gotten by staying at a local resort. Eddi is an extremely thoughtful host and it shows in all of the details of the property. Breakfast was our favorite meal of the day! It was different every morning and everything was so delicious! She used super fresh ingredients that left you feeling energized and ready to take on all the island had to offer. If we ever make a trip back to Kaua'i, we'll be sure to return!

Room Tip: The west room is where it's at! The outdoor shower and hot tub combination is magical! The only...

This was our second time at the Palmwood. Two years ago we split our time between The Palmwood and The Grand Hyatt. This year we knew we wanted to stay at The Palmwood the entire time. The location is private. The organic, gourmet breakfasts that Eddi serves each morning are amazing. The accommodations are simple, yet incredibly luxurious. Eddi has a wonderful eye for detail in everything she does.

We stayed in the west room that had a great private outdoor shower with a lovely water feature and had a wonderful time. The breakfast was unique and yummy and we felt very pampered at the Palmwood. It is in a great location and we loved it.We cannot wait to return!

I suspect that on Trip Advisors sheer numbers count--i.e., the volume of
guests might push other lodgings ahead of The Palmwood Inn. But
it shouldn't! The privacy, intimacy, and glorious beauty of this place
make it stand out head and shoulders above other accommodations
on Kauai. Eddi's breakfasts were as fantastic as others have noted,
and her personalized travel advice first-rate. Why would you stay on a
crowded beachfront when you have a completely empty beach just
over a mile away? And at night you're surrounded by the verdant
glories of this incredible valley. You pay for attention to every detail
in your surroundings. This place is heaven!

Everything was perfect from the beautiful views to the delicious breakfasts and smoothies served each morning. Eddi was always available to give informed advice on what to do. The Palmwood is an excellent escape and we preferred its private location over the more crowded south shore of Kauai. Overall we had an excellent experience staying at the Palmwood and can't wait to visit again.

My wife and I stayed at The Palmwood for the last 5 nights of our honeymoon in October 2013 and we couldn't be happier that we came across it!
First of all, the food was completely out of this world: fresh, creative, and overwhelmingly delicious. A foodie's dream. We ate breakfast at The Palmwood and would go play all day without lunch and then just grab dinner, so theoretically you can take lunch out of your budget completely.
Secondly the hosts were so welcoming and really made us feel like friends. Their insight on where to go and what to do helped lead us to some of our very most memorable days on our honeymoon… and we wouldn't have found those places otherwise.
And of course, the accommodations were unique, clean, peaceful, and spacious. Not the place for people with kids, but perfect for couples. Granted the roosters make some noise at night, but it's part of the experience of the island and the peaceful trade winds and temper-pedic mattresses will lull you to a peaceful sleep.
I'm not saying this should always be expected, but we had to get up crazy early one morning to be in Wailua by 7:00AM, and our gracious host woke up even crazy earlier and made us breakfast and smoothies to-go complete with a packed sack of snacks for our day of kayaking and hiking.
I could go on and on, but the point is: book a week at The Palmwood… elegant, unique, and creative hospitality. Love it.

Room Tip: The Upper Room is the most spacious and has a fantastic balcony with a view… no hot tub or outdoor s...

We stayed at The Palmwood for four days over the Christmas holidays (yes, this review is long overdue). Words cannot describe how beautiful this area is and how restful our stay was. Our hosts were outstanding, the food delicious, and the location was perfect to navigate the northern parts of Kauai. This is truly a hidden gem.
