From April 6 through May 2, 2015, Lava’s on Poipu Beach will be closed for enhancements. During this closure, breakfast and dinner will be provided daily in RumFire Poipu Beach. Lunch service will also be available on the resort’s pool deck. Guests at the poolside will see activity related to the upgrades, and some noise is expected during the initial phase; however, the initial phase is estimated to be complete by April 13, 2015. The resort is working to ensure a comfortable poolside experience, and all oceanfront amenities will remain available throughout the closure. Please contact the hotel for further information.


Poipu Beach

The quarter-mile, crescent-shaped, white sand Poipu Beach fronts Sheraton Kauai Resort. Long a favorite beach of Kauai residents for its sunny weather and crystal-clear ocean waters, Poipu has been ranked in the 10 Best Beaches in Hawaii by several publications. Most recently Poipu was named the #1 Beach by Doc Beach in USA TODAY and the #1 Best Family Beach by the TRAVEL CHANNEL. The ocean conditions are mild most of the year except for an occasional storm or swell, making this a popular beach for swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding and surfing.

The marine wildlife at Poipu is plentiful and varied, and not all of it is underwater. The resorts most frequent return guest, Kimo, is an endangered Monk Seal who stops to rest and sunbathe on the beach almost weekly. From December through April, whale watching is great from our beach and even better from our ocean front rooms as 40 ton humpback whales spout, breach and in general frolic, right in front of our hotel. Mothers give birth and spend the winter and spring months teaching their babies about fin and tail slapping communication techniques, thrilling our guests with their antics. Pods of Spinner Dolphins often trail in the wake of fishing/snorkeling boats and Green Sea Turtles, another endangered species, can be seen swimming just offshore.
