All transpacific travelers arriving on Kauai are subject to the state’s 10-day mandatory self-quarantine regardless of testing. However, there is a pre- and post-travel testing program for visitors who stay in “resort bubble” hotels. It allows travelers who participate in the program to enjoy the resort amenities for the first three days of their vacation until they are eligible to take their post-travel test. Once the post-travel test shows they are COVID-free, they will be released from quarantine and can leave the “resort bubble.”
To qualify, travelers must:
Take a pre-travel test within 72 hours before traveling to Kauai and receive a negative test result.
Stay at an approved Enhanced Movement Quarantine “resort bubble” property.
Take a post-travel test more than 72 hours after arriving on Kauai and receive a negative result.
The current “resort bubble” hotels on Kauai are:
The Cliffs at Princeville
Hilton Garden Inn Kauai Wailua Bay
Koa Kea Hotel & Resort at Poipu
The Club at Kukuiula
Timbers Kauai Ocean Club & Residences at Hokuala
Kauai Marriott Resort & Beach Club
