Here’s a list of recommended places we have used in the past that is good value and quality. There are plenty more to select from on Kauai depending on your budget but this will help you get started.
Accommodations in Kapaa is a great choice if you want to be central. It’s the oldest town on Kauai with a small town atmosphere and lots of restaurants, groceries, shopping. Traffic can be hectic at rush our. There are no nice swimming beaches in Kapaa but there is a great bike path you can use to run or ride to beaches. It is where the Kauai World Challenge starts.
The North is more wild and lush. It has breath taking scenery, beaches, hiking, snorkeling, surf town, and where our clinics are based. The weather can be inclement in the Winter, but if it is cooperating, it is amazing. The Napali should be on your bucket list. Some of our participants rented houses on Hanalei Bay which they loved. Princeville is where there is a good selection of resorts and condos.
The South Shore (Poipu/Lawai) has lots of great choices for accommodations that are on the beach. The South Shore is dryer and warmer in the Winter and is central to the Kauai World Challenge. We can arrange accommodations with Lawai Beach Resort which is a better deal than their posted rates. Contact us for more on Lawai.
