Islander on the Beach ❋ A Plantation Style Seaside Getaway
Relax, slumber and awake to the sounds of ocean waves! Hawaiian plantation-style charm fronting the beach, with sweeping ocean views, make the Islander on the Beach truly unique. An open-air lobby with whirring ceiling fans and a veranda looks toward a spacious lawn and pool complex. Pineapple-shaped slats on balconies enhance the rustic look.
A recent $10 million renovation created the feeling of modern air-conditioned comfort in a very Hawaiian setting. Lush gardens between buildings and the expansive oceanfront lawn create an only-in-Hawaii scene. Parallel to the ocean is an open lawn, on which lounge chairs can be set, enhancing the feel of a plantation style seaside getaway. The pool, sundeck, and large hot tub face the ocean. Take long walks on the miles of sandy beach. Enjoy the poolside bar, outdoor barbecues and charming plantation style decor. Lounge on the beach and float in the sea. A protective barrier reef creates a secluded locale for swimming, snorkeling and diving.
The Sand Bar, next to the pool, is an open-air spot serving light meals and tropical drinks. Across the street, the Coconut Marketplace, a one-story open-air shopping-and-dining village, contains many restaurants and food stands. The Royal Coconut Coast is an eight-mile strip of sandy beaches, unsurpassed ocean views, and low-key activity. The Wailua River, fed by rainfall on Mt Waialeale, provided abundant water for ancient Hawaiians to cultivate crops in this area. As a result, the coast abounds in archaeological sites worth visiting. Located just 5 miles from the Lihue airport, the Islander is the perfect headquarters from which to explore the entire island of Kauai.
