When you want to stay by the beach on the island of Kauai but don't want to
pay the beachfront rates, then the Kauai Sands Hotel is worth considering. Located
in Wailua, the Kauai Sands
Hotel not only sits next to a mile-long stretch of sand, but close to the Coconut
Market Place as well, so you won't have to travel far to find shops and restaurants.
Six beautifully landscaped acres are available for guests to use at the Sands
Hotel in Kauai, and as the beach is so close, you can do plenty of swimming,
snorkeling, or sunbathing.
If you're lucky, you might even spot some dolphins or whales just offshore when
you're relaxing at the beach. Kauai is a wonderful place to visit for many reasons,
and when you stay at the Kauai Sands Hotel, you will get to take advantage of
all that Kauai has to offer without putting a serious dent in your accommodations
If the currents are too strong or the surf too rough for ocean swimming, guests at the Kauai Sands Hotel can always take a refreshing dip in one of the hotel's two pools, which are surrounded by patios with ample seating. In addition to two swimming pools, the general facilities at the Sands Hotel in Kauai include coin-operated laundry facilities, a small exercise room, a bar, and a restaurant. When you're not taking advantage of the amenities located on the grounds of the Kauai Sands Hotel, you can enjoy a round of golf at the famous Wailua Golf Course, go on a deep-sea fishing excursion, take a helicopter tour, or enjoy any number of other fun attractions. Traveling north to visit nearby Kapaa is worth adding to your agenda, especially since it's just a few miles away.
As for the rooms at the Sands Hotel in Kauai, they aren't the most luxurious in Hawaii, but you can hardly beat the rates. A small balcony, air-conditioning, cable TV, and a mini-fridge are among the limited in-room amenities, and some units also feature a kitchenette. The kitchenette suites are the most attractive units, partly because of the added convenience that the kitchen facilities bring. Being able to prepare some of your meals and snacks on the side is a great way to keep your travel costs down. You can also drive down to nearby Lihue to stock up on goods at the more affordable grocery stores that can be found there.
There's a lot to see and do in Kauai, and when you don't plan on spending a lot of time in your hotel room, the discount rates at the Kauai Sands Hotel get even more attractive. It will be difficult to find rooms anywhere else on Kauai that are as affordable as the rooms at the Kauai Sands Hotel, so if you have budget accommodations in mind, you'll want to keep this place in mind. You can also save on rates at the some of the other area hotels, such as the Hotel Coral Reef in nearby Kapaa. The rates are a little higher at the Coral Reef, but you get a lot in return for the extra fees.
