This oceanfront resort is adjacent to the 18-hole, par 72 Poipu Bay Golf Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. A water park features a 1.5-acre saltwater lagoon with beach, a 150-foot water slide, several spa tubs, and an artificial river that meanders through lush gardens and hidden grottos and under waterfalls to a freshwater lagoon pool.
Shipwreck Beach, in front of the resort, is for strong swimmers, boogie boarders, and surfers only. For ocean swimming, Poipu Beach is two miles west. The S-shaped beach's lower loop is protected by an artificial reef. The upper loop offers surfing and boogie-boarding. In between, there's great snorkeling among lava rocks around a small sand islet.
Island activities include helicopter sightseeing tours along the spectacular Na Pali Coast, coastal and river-boat excursions, and deep-sea fishing. Horse riding is available both along the beach and in the countryside.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or near the hotel; fees may apply.
