9.2 out of 10

This romantic boutique hotel occupies a unique niche in Poʻipu. It's a bold exploration of design instead of the Hawaiiana leitmotif of so many other hotels. With 121 rooms, it's intimate and inwardly focused. The U-shaped building opens on to the beach, leaving many rooms looking across the central pool at each other. This is a decidedly adult property.

This configuration unfortunately means that many rooms lack direct beach views. While the rooms lack the vaulted ceilings and grandeur of some of the other top-end resorts, they make up for it with high-end appointments and superb decorations – like gleaming shell headboards – that make these the most refined rooms on the South Shore. Mandatory nightly resort fee ($25) includes valet parking.
