Waipouli Beach Resort & Spa Kauai by Outrigger

Kauai, Hawaii

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.

We were in Kauai at the same time as friends were and they invited us to stay in their unused second bedroom. The unit was well decorated and spacious. We were in Building C, ground floor, garden view. The room was cleaned once a week. (Our friends were there for two weeks, but we were there for 6 days.)

We were in Kauai at the same time as friends were and they invited us to stay in their unused second bedroom. The unit was well decorated and spacious. We were in Building C, ground floor, garden view. The room was cleaned once a week. (Our friends were there for two weeks, but we were there for 6 days.) I thought that the unit was stingy with towels, shampoo and soap. They provided just 6 sets of towels for 4 of us. And we were allowed only 6 pool towels. Room had a washer and dryer and that was a real plus. There was an adjacent beach, however, you couldn't swim there because of a layer of lava running across it. But I think most of Kapaa is like that. Centrally located. Read less

We had an ocean view, but it was really a pool view, with the ocean in the distance. You can't hear the waves sitting on the lanai, but you can hear the pool and others on their lanais. The beach is not a very good one. The bike path that goes down this stretch of coast doesn't pass by the beach - you have to walk a few blocks through the… Read more
We had an ocean view, but it was really a pool view, with the ocean in the distance. You can't hear the waves sitting on the lanai, but you can hear the pool and others on their lanais. The beach is not a very good one. The bike path that goes down this stretch of coast doesn't pass by the beach - you have to walk a few blocks through the neighborhood to get to it. So, we were overall disappointed with our stay. The condo itself was nice, although no condiments at all, not even salt & pepper. No detergent for the washing machine, coffee for the first morning only. Everything costs extra - housekeeping (just fresh towels/trash takeout is $55), coffee, detergent, etc. all for an extra price. The Outrigger staff were nice, the concierge was helpful. The pool was very fun for children, so families would probably be happy here. No space to swim laps. I think this is better suited for families with kids, rather than couples, although there is an adult only hot tub, with a sand bottom, which was great! Read less

Rented a VRBO and was very happy. Really nice pools and a nice beach though not great for swimming. Nice BBQ area as well as a bar and restaurant on the beach with a happy hour. Safeway across the street with a plethora of bars and eating spots within a short walk. Rooms very well appointed, quite and spacious.

Stayed at the Waipouli Beach Resort for 10 days. Stayed in E104 a one bedroom ground floor unit facing the pool. It was the first time staying in a condo always before stayed in a hotel or all inclusive resort. Overall the unit was very nice but needed some maintenance. The carpet is buckling/wrinkling in the living room. Tried the large and seemingly very nice jacuzzi tub but ran out of hot water before the tube was half full. It was nice having a full kitchen and washer/dryer. The property common areas and landscaping are well maintained. The concierge was very friendly and helpful. Everything she recommend whether free or a paid activity was very enjoyable. The property is centrally located with great access to everything on the island. It is right across the street from a Safeway and Starbucks. Also across the street is Coconut’s Fish Cafe an excellent casual low key restaurant. Get the pulled pork or fish tacos best I have ever had. Read less

This is a very beautiful resort with a beautiful pool and a nice restaurant but be careful and select your room carefully. I thought I was getting a pool view and ended up with a parking lot view. it is well-equipped but it’s very expensive
