About The Palmwood

Click here for articles and reviews...

The Palmwood Inn is perched on the ridge of a four acre estate overlooking the peaceful Moloa'a Valley located on Kauai's northeastern coastline. The newly constructed Inn inspired by Japan's mountain Ryokans (country inns) offers the discerning traveler an environment with the principals of asian design that blends and harmonizes with the beauty of its natural surroundings. It is an aesthetes' retreat.

The Inn is elegantly and stylishly appointed. Sumptuous leather and palmwood imported from Fiji's Pacific Green, furnish the Inn. Heavenly tempur-pedic mattresses adorned in fine pristine linens will have you melt in comfort.

Awaken to a glorious morning, joining your host and fellow guests on the main floor of the Inn for a cup of Kona Coffee and delicious pineapple coconut scones. You might prefer scrambled egg whites with a sprinkle of fresh basil and melt in your mouth fresh local mangoes. It is strange, but the island has you craving for healthier and lighter food choices.

Explore the island. Kauai is a unique place and those fortunate enough to experience the island recognize its infinite beauty, and the spirit it evokes.

The Inn is also a place to enjoy the day. Perhaps a massage on your private deck, or lounge in the hammock with spectacular views of the dramatic mountains with a book you've been yearning to enjoy.

Take a stroll to Moloa'a Bay, a crescent golden sand beach with turquoise waters is just down a meandering tropical country road (1.25 miles). Snorkel in our healthy reefs with vibrant underwater life. This bay has many faces and moods depending on the season and the day, always beautiful.

Enjoy the evening "talking story" as they call it on island, with adventures of your day with fellow guests. Throw on the fresh catch of the day you couldn't resist picking up from Kilauea Fish Market on the outdoor grill. How about some organic greens with edible flowers on the side from the Inn's garden, and of course a glass of that great bottle of wine you stumbled on at the local market. Finish off the evening encircled by a stream and falls, star gazing in your private outdoor lava rock shower.

Kilauea, Hanalei, Princeville and Kappa are all towns easily accessible just a beautiful drive away for restaurants and eateries of every taste and mood.

We look forward to sharing our aloha with you at The Palmwood, a Luxury Boutique Inn.

The Palmwood | Frommer's Review

This is a unique property with a tranquil setting (atop a hill on a 4-acre estate), fabulous views (360-degree panorama of the rolling hills of Moloa'a Valley and out to the ocean), and unbelievably beautiful rooms and surrounding landscaping. Eddi Henry has traveled the globe picking up decorating and landscaping ideas, and along with her husband, Steven, has turned this property into a comfortable, calming retreat in the midst of paradise.

From the stone entryway to the leather/palm-wood chairs (so comfortable you will be hard-pressed to leave them) to the sound of water falling -- this tiny, 2-unit inn is the lap of luxury. The amenities include flatscreen TVs, double doors leading to a large lanai, a hot tub and Japanese Zen gardens outside, a barbecue area, and a full breakfast (such as crab cakes with mango and banana bread). Relax in the free-form hammock -- you may find it hard to tear yourself away and explore the rest of the island. It's pricey, but worth every penny. Not appropriate for children.

The Palmwood | Trazzler Review

There are only two rooms at The Palmwood Inn, the east wing and the west wing. Choose the west. The level of peace, relaxation, sophistication, and natural beauty experienced here will undoubtedly become the highlight of your vacation. Feel like soaking in the private jacuzzi?—go for it. Shower outdoors with the serene Moloa'a Valley landscape surrounding you. Feel like snoozing after a day at the beach? Slip onto your bed outdoors with a mountainside view. When the clouds start to build and the light winds bring soft rain, toss your cares into their gusts and take cover in your room. Indoors or out, the Palmwood Inn redefines the pleasure principle.
