"Much needed getaway at awesome resort"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 17, 2019 NEW
We stayed here for a week and had a great time. The service from the moment we walked in was amazing. Anything you need, they have or will at least help you to get. The valet guys I have to say are awesome, very talkative and friendly. Our favorite parts are the close proximity beaches, the luxurious showers, and the peace and quiet. I would highly recommend this resort to couples or anyone needing a relaxing getaway. I wouldn't suggest bringing kids as it's not really that type of place. Thank you again Koa Kea for making my wife and I's first trip to Hawaii so great.

"Best Boutique Hotel Getaway"

Reviewed November 16, 2019 NEW
Exceptional service and all the right ammenities was just part of why we would like to go back. Loved that it was the right amount of quiet with plenty to do all around. The Red Salt Restaurant was very good for both dinners and breakfast. There is a lot of attention to detail for the guests. Wouldn't bring kids there. It's not that kind of place.

"Simply the best!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 16, 2019 NEW
We stayed for a second time this October at the Ko’a Kea. It is simply the best small resort. Service is excellent. We enjoyed breakfast each morning at Red Salt - our server, Jenny was amazing. She remembered us after our first day and took excellent care of us during our week long stay. The grounds are amazing! Best snorkeling right next door! I highly recommend staying here - we will be back!

"Small, private resort"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 15, 2019 NEW
If you don't like crowds at the mega resorts, this is the place for you. They have a poolside bar that serves food and Red Salt is the fine dining restaurant. The pool and spa were smallish due to limited guest rooms. Rooms themselves were absolutely gorgeously done. The only downside was the lack of easy access to the beach on property. The steep rocks were not for older folks.
