Extraordinary!

5 on March 26, 2016

We enjoyed an extraordinary stay in our cottage. The view was breathtaking and the accommodations were understatedly elegant. This, coupled with the delicious cuisine, made for a truly unforgettable stay, one I hope to be fortunate enough to do again! Mahalo piha!


A little slice of heaven!

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at the Lava Lava Beach Club! We were fortunate enough to stay for 3 nights but would have easily been able to stay for weeks!!! It did not take us long to "embrace the pace" and just "chill". The cottage was very comfortable, the outdoor shower was a fun experience and we absolutely enjoyed listening to the live music every night from our front porch! WE WILL DEFINITELY RETURN ONE DAY!


Wonderful place

I was just married at Lava Lava and we stayed for a week after. Everything was amazing, from Tina, who helped get the wedding set up, to the rest of the staff, who were all friendly and did a great job. We stayed in the cottage that is closest to the restaurant. They note on their website that it is the least private and can be noisy due to the proximity to the live music. We felt like it was the best though. It was never too loud and we loved sitting on the porch and watching the music and waves each night. As much as I don't want word to get out (we want to go back whenever we can!), the entire place (people, cottages, food, etc.) are all so great, we don't have the heart to greedily keep them to ourselves. Go, enjoy! You won't regret it!


View of Paradise

Peaceful place to stay and have an ideal view while sitting on your lanai and listening to the entertainers at the restaurant. Enjoyable enough that we have been stayed there twice in the last 6 months.


Christmas at LavaLava

4.0 on January 10, 2016

We had a great holiday-skipping Christmas-at LavaLava Beach Club. The cottages were well stocked with all essentials. We thought the live music might be a problem-but it was NOT. It was very soothing to fall asleep with the ocean and music every night. The only sort of complaint is that housekeeping did not clean the floors everyday.

We absolutely love this place! It is so unique and enjoyed two nights there after our wedding. The pupus and cocktails daily at 5pm is a nice touch!


Perfect relaxation

5 on November 06, 2015

My husband and I both have stressful jobs and Lava Lava Beach Club was the perfect setting for relaxation. We stayed in the Wa'a cottage. It was beautiful, well-appointed, and just laying in bed with the waves crashing was so amazing. Nothing like letting the waves lull you to sleep. Can't wait to see if they add cottages to the Kauai location. Spend the money; it is well worth the expense.


Wonderful Lava Lava

4.8 on October 17, 2015

We stayed in bungalow 3. Can't say enough about how wonderful it was. The Lava Lava knows how to do it right. We were also married on the beach right in front of our bungalow. Lava Lava handled all the details and did an incredible job.


Awesome place

This is my 3rd visit with my girlfriend. I usually do not make repeat visits to the same accommodation, but Lava Lava is different, we would like to go back again. They have such a great set up. Close from Kona Airport but very quiet. The scenery from the morning till dawn is just fabulous and the night time sky is filled with stars. Swim in the ocean and you are bound to meet swimming turtles. All the staffs are cool, laid back and polite. The restaurant/bar is right next to the cabins, so its very convenient. Having a bar close by seems noisy, but that is hardly the case. There is always a band playing music that soothes your soul and occasional relaxed and innocent laughs and giggles from dining customers actually add to good vacationing ambience. There are though, two things I would request to Lava Lava. We recently stayed there for 5 nights and dined there 6 times (lunches and dinners). Practically each time we sat at the restaurant, we were asked, "Is this your first visit with us ?". It was ok for the first few times, but eventually got a bit annoying, even though I know the waiters/waitresses were just trying to be friendly. And, it would be most welcome if they could change the restaurant reservation rule. There are a few beautiful sofa settings right on the sand, closest to the ocean. But I was explained by the hostess that these are first come first serve only. I can understand that if that was for non cabin guests .... So, the downside is that the communication between accommodation and restaurant seemed a bit detached. Having said that though, we shall make a return trip. M.K.
