This hotel is absolutely amazing - it's right on a small (but perfectly sized) beach in the heart of the southern coast of Kauai. Here are some important points / tips:
1. the hotel is down a winding road behind a larger resort (slightly strange to find)
2. Valet only but they don't have a per day cost, just tip when you get your car. The valet staff could not be quicker or more helpful. remembered us by name and often helped with restaurant options and places to go for a hike / walk. it was less than 3 minuets usually from when we asked for our car to when we got it. perfection!
3. the pool is wonderful - just the right size and overlooking the beach and a large grassy area for you to lounge on. there are plenty of lounging chairs at the pool as well.
4. No kids at this resort made our honeymoon perfect (it's honestly not a kid-friendly location at all so it's not like kids would be here...)
5. the rooms are so nice - large and the beds are heaven.
6. we never at the Red Salt rest, but we heard great things about it.
7. the beach / ocean right outside is perfect - crystal clear water and surfers right outside. the surf here is a little too "rough" for kids (hence why kids are not really here) but it's not rough at all for adults.
8. if you can get ocean view - ask for the rooms above the restaurant - they have perfect, unobstructed views of the ocean and huge (larger than others) balconies.
We WILL be back to visit!
