At the resort, set on 800 lush tropical acres on Kalapaki Bay, guests can unwind by the spectacular pool or on the soft white sand beaches. The resort is adjacent to the Kauai Lagoons Golf & Racquet Club. The two properties encompass all the land from the ocean to the airport, including a quarter mile of ocean coastline. The resort has two Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses, eight tennis courts, retail shops, five restaurants and lounges, a huge swimming pool complex with five jacuzzis, the full-service Alexander Day Spa & Salon, and an extensive collection of Pacific Rim and Hawaiian art
This hillside resort offers 356 air-conditioned rooms. Most have furnished lanais, while ground-floor garden-view rooms have furnished patios and standard rooms have no balconies or patios. Most rooms have views of the gardens, ocean, or pool. Rooms are outfitted with light-wood furniture, dining tables beneath chandeliers, refrigerators, and marble-lined tub/shower alcoves. Just 1 1/2 miles from Lihue Airport on Kauai's east coast, this resort drops down a lush hillside to a crescent beach on Kalapaki Bay and is adjacent to two golf courses and a tennis center.
The pool's dimensions are: 210 feet in diameter, 26,000 square feet, 300,000 gallons of water, 1.2 million tiles. Seen from the Aupaka above, the round pool with its scalloped edge features pink-marble waterfalls, a six-pointed sundeck-island, sculpted-animal fountains spraying jets of sparkling water, and a palm-shaded sundeck—including a children's pool—spreading out to restaurants, lounges, and a broad sunning lawn bordering the beach. Five grand, wood-columned gazebos rise two stories from the pool to the Aupaka. Their top levels each contain a single black-marble table offering great views. Their bottom levels each contain a large hot tub next to the pool.
