Welcome to the Hotel Coral Reef..
A tranquil setting— you will find us beneath the palm trees and situated right on the beach where the calming sound of ocean waves and sea birds compliment the pleasant trade winds. Humpback whales spout their salty spray amidst an open vista of turquoise-blue sea, while a rare Monk seal naps in the sand at waters edge. Enjoy the breath-taking view from your oceanfront room... and contemplate your next day of adventure on this island paradise placed in the great and mysterious Pacific!

...and the Garden Island of Kauai.
It is a special place— born out of volcanic eruptions 5.5 million years ago, bathed in sea water and thrust ever upwards to form the mountains of Kauai. Moist ocean air is forced up these mountains creating spectacular clouds, sunbursts, and numerous rainbows. It is common to see the mountaintops reaching high and vanishing into the clouds. Waterfalls seem to spill right out of these clouds, falling for thousands of feet down the mountainsides, carving Kauai's famous cliffs and buttresses before returning to the ocean once again. So too, the cycle of life on Kauai relies on the ocean, the sun and sky, the mountains, and the rains. The people who live here know this well. Located at a tropical latitude, Kauai is a natural greenhouse and exotic plants thrive here. Truly, Kauai is an oasis in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and the Garden Island of all Hawaii.
One of the Worlds Great Destinations
Kauai has it all— spectacular mountains, sea cliffs (Napali Coast), coral reefs, beaches, world-renowned hiking trails (Kalalau), deep canyon lands (Koke'e), arid savannas, forest, rivers (Wailua), prairie, and mountaintop swamps (Alaka'i). Kauai is home to several unique and endangered plants, insects, birds, and marine creatures. The unique nature of Kauai, and it's relative isolation from the rest of the world, have played important roles in the cultural development of the different peoples who have lived here. Indeed, Kauai is unique and diverse in many ways... it's no wonder they make so many movies here!
Today, Kauai has a very diverse melting-pot of cultures, out of which comes a refreshing blend of languages, music, foods, beverages, arts, and dance. Ever since the first Kauaiians made this island 'home', the people here have sought to develop and maintain a style all their own. With the spirit of 'aloha', Kauaiians are proud and happy to share their lives with the rest of the world.
"Very comfortable rooms without that same old 'hotel' feel. Very unique, great views, and many things to do nearby. We would not hesitate to come back again. The windows are large and give you the option of waking up and hearing the ocean waves against the beach. You will not be sorry if you stay here!"— Happy Hotel Guests
