Resting on exquisite Poipu Beach on Kauai is the Ko'a Kea Hotel & Resort. A boutique hotel offering luxurious comforts and amenities, this intimate setting with 121 guest rooms is a small slice of heaven and a drastic difference to neighboring resorts holding around 600 rooms. Only a few years old, Ko'a Kea combines tropical elegance with a sleek modern twist in each room and throughout the hotel.
