Waipouli Beach Resort & Spa Kauai by Outrigger

Kauai, Hawaii

Virgin rating

The hotel

Set along Kauai’s Coconut Coast on two oceanfront acres, this resort offers a choice of well furnished apartments. A beautiful heated river pool meanders through the manicured gardens, with waterfalls, water slides and whirlpools. For an indulgent treat, the oceanfront Spa By The Sea offers a wide range of wellness services, such as massages, body treatments and even a Japanese soaking tub. Oasis on the Beach is just as the name suggests — dine on delicious cuisine, nearly all locally sourced, and sip on tropical cocktails as you gaze out over the gardens and beach. After dinner, there’s a seaside walkway, ideal for a moonlit stroll. If you like to be more active, hire a bicycle and ride along the four-mile Kapaa coastal trail, enjoying spectacular ocean views as you pedal.

Worse service I have ever experienced in a 4 star resort. The website is, without being nasty, totally inaccurate. The pool is not heated nor is it a salt water pool. Services both front desk and maintenance stops at 7 PM and does not start back up till 8 AM. If you require assistance, you are out of luck. The one and only restsurant and bar does not open till 4 PM. If you sit at the pool...no service for food or drink till then. Don't try talking to the front desk because they truly don't care to help. None of this information is on the website. Read less

We stayed in D101 which was a beautiful unit. Quality everything, from the bedding and towels to the kitchen supplies, furniture and decor. AC worked perfect. We had a garden view which was very pretty. Communication was very good. Fitness room met our needs. The only downside to the resort is the pool is cold as others have noted.

The room was very well appointed. We had a great view and a balcony. Room had a fan which helped with the humidity. Staff was friendly and helpful. The lazy river water feature was awesome. Loved the hot tubs with sand bottoms and the slides. This resort is in a great location. Safeway across the street and nice restaurants close by. Would stay… Read more

ONLY downside was the toilet paper and paper towels were the cheapest we have ever seen. Completely useless. Read less

This unit has beach chairs, umbrellas, ice chests, snorkeling gear and sand toys for your use, just clean and return them as you found them. The resort is in the perfect location, Safeway right across the street. We will definitely be returning soon. Greg & Bella. Fontana, CA Read less

I've rented multiple units at this resort from Kauai Calls before. I would not stay in this one again. As always, the unit was exceptionally clean. Kudos to the housekeeping staff! And the view is amazing from this unit. There were a couple of things that were slightly annoying, though. First of all, it is much closer to the restaurant than expected. This isn't a deal breaker, but something to note for anyone considering it. The biggest complaint I have is that the thermostat keeps resetting itself to 75. I would turn it down to 70, the a/c would kick on, and within an hour it would be warming up again. Walk over to the thermostat and it had reset itself. This happened multiple times and was maddening. I understand wanting to be green, but don't advertise having a/c and then make it impossible to use. Read less
