This is a very special place that quickly takes the city out of one's nerves and supplants one gently in to a state of relaxation and serenity with sounds of light ocean breeze, melodic sounds of surf and birdsong. We stayed in bungalow 4 (furtherest from the restaurant) and had as much privacy as we wanted, yet were only steps away from nightly entertainment, great food and drink. Five nights in any one location normally is the longest we want to stay; Lava Lava is now the exception as five nights is not near enough. Staff will pamper, the bungalow is thoughtfully planned and equipped with everything you could possibly need, and the outdoor shower is an absolute indulgence for the senses and soul. Quality abounds and mother nature beyond expectation takes care of the rest. We cannot wait to return ~

We stayed in the cottage furthest away from the restaurant and it was the most private and secluded. Tucked away in the Kiawi trees and beach goers (public beach) tended to not set up in front of this cottage as they did in the 1st too. Plus we were further away from the nightly music.... which was pleasant, but not so loud. HUGE outdoor shower,, very private and the linens in the bed were first class. Each evening at 5pm, we were delivered a small appetizer and cocktail for the both of us, and they supplied a complimentary fruit and banana bread in the evening for next morning. You are REALLY just steps from the ocean. We Paddle boarded every day...one day twice. Swimming was Awesome, there is an abundance of coral, turtles and fish to snorkel over. I would return here again and have highly recommended if to my friends.

Imagine waking to breakfast in bed (that was left in your fridge), drinking Kona coffee & watching outriggers paddle by from your own beach front cottage steps from the sea! Unbelievable charm in every detail from the outdoor shower area to wifi, pillow choices, evening hors d'oeurves & breakfast fruit delivered to the "hale" each day. We swam with turtles & a manta ray right in front of the restaurant! Gorgeous beach walk in either direction with many photo ops! We sat on our own lanai each evening drinking our Gilligan's Girl & Huggo's Mai Tais listening to great, live music overlooking the entire bay! The restaurant right on the water with an unbelievable menu is outstanding. Staff is well trained and professional but also engaging. Truly a magical experience not to be missed! Stayed an extra night! Hated to leave......

We stayed for two nights in the Hale Nalu Cottage and truly enjoyed ourselves. The cottages are steps from the water and right down the beach from the Lava Lava Restaurant and Bar. The cottage was clean and pleasant, and the early afternoon snack and early evening appetizers were a wonderful extra perk. The option of the indoor shower or the completely private and enclosed outdoor shower was a great touch. Staff were pleasant and friendly. The blue tooth speaker in the room was great for us to hook up our personal music players, and the live music in the evenings from the restaurant was very enjoyable. Kings and Queens Shops were in comfortable walking distance, allowing for shopping and other eating selections. Sunsets, the sound of the waves, birds in the trees, all blended to provide a fabulous experience. We will return!

This location was outstanding. We enjoyed the outdoor shower so you had a true tropical experience. The entire staff, check in, housekeeping, wait staff and managers were so helpful, kind and fun! The bed linens were dreamy. The pupus were good and something always different. A perfect place to relax so close to the beach. We will be back for sure!

Enjoyed the stay. The only thing I would suggest is a routine daily cleaning by staff of rooms for new towels, etc.

Relaxing and beautiful cottages. My family loved spending time on the outside lanai of Hale Nalu. The view of the ocean was breath taking. We also enjoyed the happy hour drinks and pupu that was personally brought to out cottage. It was a nice touch.
