Stay at Kauai's newest affordable oceanfront hotel, The ISO

Following multimillion-dollar renovations, Kauai hotel The ISO is as affordable as it is luxurious.

Formerly the Mokihana Resort, Castle Resorts & Hotels newest hotel, The ISO (an acronym for island, sky, ocean), opened this past May and the $5 million renovation has given this property a much-needed breath of life.

Located on the ocean in the middle of Kapaa, with a grocery store, coffee shop and a number of fantastic restaurants and eateries across the street, The ISO is positioned to be one of the best hotels to stay at on Kauai for the active and budget-minded traveler, due in part to its vast number of amenities: a large pool, expansive lawn, yoga classes, Wi-Fi, continental breakfast and flat screen TVs, to name a few.

Steak and lobster? Yes, please.

Its restaurant, The Bull Shed, also serves up the island’s best deal—and best oceanfront views—on large portions of prime rib, steak and lobster. Save room for the mud pie.
