Honeymoon Vacation

4.6 on November 13, 2012

Me and my wife went to the Kauai Banyan Inn for our Honeymoon. We stayed in the Ali'i suite and it was one of the most amazing experiences of our lifetimes. The scenery was amazing and the view was breathtaking. While this isn't your traditional B&B meaning they don't serve breakfast every morning, I still highly recommend this location, they provided a welcome basket that included a number of local treats and snacks along with other pleasant surprises throughout the rooms. I'm glad we choose this location to start off our marriage, and we will definitely be back in the future.

Nice place to stay

We stayed in the Kauai Banyan Inn over the holidays. It was a great pleasure to stay there. We really enjoyed the location of the inn and cleanliness of the rooms. The rooms are very well decorated and thoroughly designed. Also, you can find all the equipment that you'd need for any of the activities on the island. I had two small concerns: Although the price is the same not all the rooms at that price level are the same. There is a major difference between Milo and Nani Loa suites. If you can, try to stay in Milo suite and enjoy the view and a better room. My second concern was the breakfast provided by the owner. I thought that there would be food for the customers throughout the stay. It was enough only for two days of our stay. In sum, it's a really nice place to stay, just a little bit overrated though.
