The Sheraton is the perfect complement to the Hyatt. While the Hyatt excels at gorgeous and exotic grounds, the Sheraton boldly embraces the ocean. The Ocean and Beach wings are closer to the ocean than at any other major Kaua‘i hotel. The sound of the surf hitting the rocks below the Ocean Wing is soothing. Kiahuna Beach, in front of the Beach Wing, is wonderfully close and easy to access. The Garden Wing (across the street) is generally lacking but is cheaper, and we’re not as fond of the rooms there. All rooms are on the small side (410 sq. ft. for the garden view, 510–530 sq. ft. for Ocean and Beach) and don’t feel particularly Hawaiian. But the resort makes up for it with its cozy relationship with the water. Most rooms are connected to others by a lock-off—good for families needing more than one room. Their restaurants have incredible beach views.

The beachside pool is nice but small for a resort of this size (but with the ocean right there, does it really matter?). You can rent all your beach gear there, as well as take a surf or scuba lesson. Cabanas (they call them bungalows) by the pool are $150 per day with ceiling fan, tv and cooler of water. Casabella chairs (with retractable shade) by the beach are $75. Dinners by the beach start at $355 per couple. We love the three fire pits they added to the courtyard (especially the one by the beach for a sunset view) where there is often entertainment in the evenings.

When picking a room, this is one of those places where it’s worth the extra money to spring for an ocean view. Rates are $529–$749. Suites (820–1,310 sq. ft.) are $1,099–$1,299. Specials and packages available.

“Thank you so much for all the informational tips in your guidebook about Kauai. We had the most wonderful time in Kauai thanks to all the tips you provided. From the hotels to the great beaches (Ke’e was my favorite) yours was the book that showed us it all. I loved my experience so much that I am hoping to retire there someday. Once again thank you for writing this book!!”
