Kōloa is the site of Hawaii’s first major sugar plantation. Often nicknamed Old Kōloa Town, the village retains much of its 19th-century character, with old-fashioned storefronts and quaint galleries lining the main road, and stunning beaches nearby.
If you’re feeling energetic, rent bikes and cycle the 2 miles (3 kilometers) from Old Kōloa Town to the oceanfront. Poipu Beach offers a clean shoreline and calm waters ideal for young children. Head a little further out to surf world-class waves and keep an eye out for humpback whales and dolphins, which are frequently spotted offshore. Sign up for a scuba-diving lesson and dive through coral gardens with sea turtles and tropical fish.
You don’t have to head to the ocean to enjoy the area’s waterfront attractions. Go kayaking or rafting along the Wailua River and enjoy the rain forest landscape as you glide along with the current. If boating isn’t your style, then take a zip-line tour to explore the landscape from a bird’s-eye point of view. Unwind after the excitement at one Kōloa’s spas, which offer massages and other treatments amid the region’s iconic rain forest setting.
Many of the resorts host luaus throughout the week. Luaus provide a chance to experience local culture, with dancing and a traditional feast. If you’d prefer a more low-key dinner, enjoy fresh-caught seafood at one of the restaurants in Old Kōloa Town. Satisfy your sweet tooth at Lappert’s Ice Cream, a local establishment selling fresh-made ice cream that uses regional ingredients. The town features mellow nightlife with plenty of bars and pubs, but those looking for glitzy nightclubs will be disapointed.
Kōloa and Poipu border one another, so it’s easy to enjoy the attractions in both towns. Learn more about the region’s history with a walk along the Kōloa Heritage Trail. Stretching between Kōloa and Poipu, the 10-mile (16-kilometer) path is dotted with informational plaques that enable a self-guided tour through the tropical landscape.
Kōloa is a 30-minute drive southwest of Lihue Airport. Public transport is limited, so rent a car, motorbike or bicycle to get the most out of your visit.

From check-in to check-out, this resort exceeded my expectations in every way.
Perfection from check in to check out! The valet guys were extremely helpful and attentive. The grounds were kept super clean and housekeeping was on top of everything! The only negative to our experience was that the pool bar was out of all our favorite beers ( Heineken light, Corona and Pacifico) ...
The view from our 4th floor ocean front room was amazing!. However, we booked a king room almost a year in advance & were given a double queen room when we arrived (& were told that there were no comparable king rooms available). There was also a leaky toilet that was never fixed. We ate at Lavas ...
Over the top hotel. Looks like a palace. Very Grand hotel. Unbelievably beautiful. Groumet food all restuarants.
Such a lovely property. We loved the location especially being so close to Poipu Beach and a short walk to the Hyatt. They was a pool bar with a nice happy hour. Pool was nice only 2.5 feet deep the whole way across but still nice. The same path that leads you to Hyatt also turns into a super amazing ...
This is my most favourite place on earth. I've been back 3 times now and stayed at this resort each and every time. The grounds are so spacious and beautifully kept there is nothing quite like this place. Beachfront, bbq's, fully equipped condos all you need is a car for the small trips around the ...
I would have liked to be able to check in over the phone, was working long days and had to come in to the office in person before closing. The place was nice, surprisingly big and the deck view was awesome. The staff were friendly and helpful. I liked that it was a short walk to Kalipaki Joe's - ...
