Kauai Beach Resort (KBR) is located North of Lihue in an area with little development other than KBR itself and the adjacent Kauai Beach Villas. While offering a relatively remote, peaceful location, it is convenient to Lihue and the airport which is only a 10-minute drive away. Kauai Beach Resort sits on 12 lushly landscaped acres featuring lagoons, waterfalls, and Kauai's longest beach. There are 345 guest rooms plus restaurant, meeting space, bar, and tennis courts. For those looking for a tropical vacation experience with the ultimate in on-site amenities, this one is hard to beat.
Units are individually-owned after conversion to condominiums in 2007. The majority of the units are in the hotel pool with on-site management by Aqua Resorts. The former Anekoa management company is no longer associated with this project after foreclosure proceedings were completed in 2009. It was operated under the Hilton flag until becoming an Aqua Resort property in 2009. Prices have tumbled from original sales prices from $1/4 million to $1/2 million and are now selling well below $100,000 as resales. According to RealtyTrac, nearly 50% of these units were bank-owned (REO) at the end of June, 2011.
