    The Stanford Inn is more than a hotel, not what I would call a resort, but in many ways so much more. This is a place that is accommodating when it comes to getting away, clearing your senses, relaxation, activity, and putting good things in...More

    I don't know Napaii Kai but Stsnford Inn won't do the trick. Across the highway from the water. Never heard any waves lapping. But it's a nice experience.
