Lodging options for the Kauai Writers Conference

Our reserved rooms at the Royal Sonesta Kauai Resort, the main conference location, are almost completely sold out. We have arranged an additional block of rooms at the very nearby Banyan Harbor Resort. It’s about a ten minute walk from the Sonesta, and more economical. Our units there are all two-bedroom condos, each with a separate living room and fully equipped kitchen, priced at $239/night for the entire condo.

You can reserve your condo at the Banyan Harbor by calling (808) 245-7333 and identifying yourself as a member of the Kauai Writers Conference.  Or book online at:

The tall building just across the beach is the Royal Sonesta Resort where the conference takes place. Note that the Banyan Harbor property is on a hill, so it may not be suitable for someone who is mobility-challenged.

A few rooms, mainly during just the master class days, remain at the Sonesta. Others may occasionally come available due to last minute changes. You can track availability and book these rooms here:
