'Hawaii has always been a very pivotal role in the Pacific. It is in the Pacific. It is a part of the United States that is an island that is right here.'
Dan Quayle, the former Vice President of the United States, expressed his take on the importance of Hawaii in these no uncertain terms. And when it comes to Hawaii, no mention of Kauai can be out of the order, for it is an integral part of the most beautiful state in America. 

Kauai, sometimes also spelt out as Kaua'i, is a small island in the Pacific, barely occupying 500 square miles of land. But when it comes to Hawaiian Islands, the beauty is not in numbers, it is rather in the way one is able to perceive it. 

As far as perceptions go, Kauai has got a full-scale ten on ten from most tourists who choose to go there. In a small expanse, it has managed to cram many sights that tourists crave for, beaches and mountains, caves and jungles, resorts and holiday rentals. So, if you end up in Kauai by deliberate planning or by a stroke of luck, do be assured that it is not the worst place you would want to spend the rest of your life in. 

The tourism in Kauai has improved leaps and bounds in the last three decades or so. What used to be a study field for researchers has now becomes a bustling tourism hub where thousands of travelers come to cut their ties from the rest of the world, in a hope to find some calm, tranquillity and composure that they dearly need to restore their sanity, sanity that has been tinkered with by today's fast paced professional life. 

For those of our readers who think Kauai can play a big role in helping them rejuvenate, this write-up can be a perfect starting point to get to know Kauai hotels and where it is that you should looking for them! 

Cheap Hotels in Kauai 

Kauai, as we have mentioned in the passing in the introduction of this article, is one of the best known islands in Hawaii. And as it turns out, one of the best for cheap lodging, as well!

That would surely sound like music to those tourists who maintain a tight budget and lesser expectations from their lodging points of views. Cheap hotels can be found easily in Kauai if you are just a little bit flexible in your ideas of comfort and luxury. It would only be inappropriate to expect a hotel to be both cheap and luxurious. So, stick to basic amenities like safety, comfort and a good night's sleep, and you will be enjoying your Kauai trip in a way that's thrifty and memorable. 

Among various cheap hotels here in Kauai that we are in the know of, Garden Island Hill is a definite winner of the top spot. Located in Lihue, it is one great deal that combines comfort, affordability and proximity to transport options of various kinds. 

Hotel Coral Reef is a worthy competitor of Garden Island Inn. It is situated in Kapaa and can provide you easy access to beaches and sights in the area. 

Back in Lihue again, Kauai Inn can also fulfil your requirements of a cheap hotel, provided you are fine with lodging that is not too spacious. Don't worry about hygiene or safety though, it is one of the most popular tourist picks in the region, and not without solid reasons! 

Luxury Stay in Kauai 

It can't get better than this. The best and, in our humblest of opinions, the only way to enjoy an island like Kauai is to plan your stay at a posh, chic and luxury hotel. A luxury hotel can work wonders for your tour on many levels. It allows you to let your hair down in the finest manner imaginable, all the while making sure that you are presented with the best of services in terms of luxury, opulence and of course, food! 

Although, we are aware that there are a handful of luxury hotels in Kauai that vie for the attention of tourists, we are going to play safe by picking Marriott Kauai as the top favorite in this segment. 

In Princeville nearby, you can find St Regis and Westin properties, too. 

Boutique Hotels and Rentals in Kauai 

Kauai is not that big on rentals. 

But if you happen to really looking for one, you wouldn't find it that difficult, either. There are a few holiday rental villas and boutique hotels in Kauai that might be well worth exploring, with many of them located along various beaches in Lihue. 

If it works for you, you can also share rental villas with other tourists, in order to bring the overall expenses down a notch. 

Things to Do/See in Kauai 

Lydgate State Park is the hottest tourist spot in Kauai. Featuring local flora and fauna, as well as a swimming area, it can be a perfect day's outing, especially if you are travelling with children. 

Old Koloa Town is another off-the-beaten-path place in Kauai, known for its rustic, native way of life that you will surely be fascinated by. 

Opaekaa Fall and Kilauea Point can also be visited for a dose of natural serenity and majesty that will impress the nature lover inside you. Going further, Huleia National Wildlife Reserve can be explored for local animal and bird species sighting. 

Travelling Locally in Kauai 

The best way to travel around Kauai is by renting a car, as the public transport doesn't really exist here. You can rent cars directly from Lihue airport, for a small daily fee. If you miss that chance, worry not, because many Kauai hotels have car rental programs in collaboration with rental companies.

Kauai Bus operates in the major parts of the region, but it is both inconvenient and inefficient, if you wish to travel to rural areas. Private taxis operate in some parts of Lihue, too.
