All lighting LED, energy efficent and human friendly.
The kitchen has a full sink, two burner stove, fridge and pantry area.
We have bikes, wifi, beach items all included in your stay.We have excellent well water that we then run thru a reverse osmosis system, so no need to buy water in plastic that was shipped from afar.
The Zen Root is on a beautiful, rustic retreat sanctuary located on the island of Kaua’i. The land is situated just a few minutes walk from the protected Moloaa Bay, and is just 30 minutes from the airport. Moloaa, is known for its farming community and rural, “off the beaten track” feel.
Our mission is to connect people to the beauty of Kaua'i, and our spaces have been created to blend seamlessly with the nature that surrounds us. We strive to be as “eco-friendly” as we can, and to minimize our impact on our surroundings. We don't use poisons and you may see insects that are harmless such as ants, spiders, snails and roaches, ect., we have no snakes.
The buildings are constructed of reclaimed teak and sandalwood from 150 year old buildings in Thailand. We also incorporate earthen floors, exterior walls, and reclaimed granite in the kitchen and bathroom. The structures are all working pieces of art, incorporating mosaics and statues.
This is a place to remember our connection to the wonder of life. It is a place to relax, unplug, and experience life the way it once was. Come enjoy the open air structures, the healing ocean, and the beauty that is Old Kaua’i. We look forward to sharing the beauty of Moloaa with you.

Interaction with Guests
We are happy to talk with our guest if they want to know about anything. We also are happy to let our guest have their own personal retreat time without interuptions.
We are just a few minutes from Moloaa Bay, which is great for swimming, snokling on the north and south sides, enjoying the nice beaches and hiking to the north point for sunrise to see turtles or whales.
We also have Moloaa fruit stand just up the road for coffee, smoothies, sandwiches; as well as a good health food store 10 minutes drive to the north. Also Common ground garden restaurant across from the health food store has organic and local breakfast and lunches that are wonderful.
We really recommend renting a car due to the fact that Kaua'i is very spread out.
That said, the bus stop is up the hill 2.4 miles at Moloaa fruit stand and hitch hiking is common and easy in Kauai.
We appreciate people who like the beauty of quietness and are interested in the natural ways of Kauai. No smoking indoors, moderate drinking okay.
The beautiful space is just like it looks in pictures, and Anthony was a gracious host (Hami was out of town). Anthony has great recommendations for food and beaches, but gives you your privacy. The location is fantastic for accessing the North beaches and towns, while being off the beaten path enough to relax. We appreciated the shared beach equipment as well. The unit is quasi-outdoor, which means there are bugs - mosquitoes and others - some tropical size, so be aware of that.
Our stay at the beautifully crafted zen root was truly a unique experience in a quiet, tranquil, area of kauai. The room was exactly as pictured. We really needed the mosquito nets provided for our beds at night and guests should note that the unit is not fully insulated allowing for a true experience in nature! Bugs and mosquitos were present in the unit. Anthony was welcoming and present upon our arrival. He talked us through all the sights of kauai. He was responsive on text too throughout our stay.
Being at Anthony and Hami's place allows ones trip to Kauai be the special experience it is and this time we found Zen root to just enhance an otherwise exceptional part of the world.
The Zen Root is amazing and peaceful! Anthony and his dog made us feel very welcome and the place is really as good as the pictures. They even have fresh fruit growing on the property, you’ll be a short walk to one of the most amazing beaches on Kauai (and chances are you’ll have it mostly to yourself). The bed is comfortable, and the ocean breezes seemed to keep everything the perfect temperature. Highly recommend the Zen Root, exceptional value!
This was such a great stay. Loved what Anthony and Hami have done with their place. Anthony was there to greet us and show us around, but after that we were completely private, which is what we were seeking. Waking up and keeping the doors open throughout our 5 days was the best of both worlds, along with making breakfast and practicing yoga with the sunrise. Would definitely recommend staying here.
Anthony was an incredible host. We had a wonderful time at the zen root. Waking up to see the sunrise over the ocean from the bed is incredible. Highly recommend for the layed back traveler who loves kicking back in a hammock.
Anthony & Hami both were great hosts! They even fed us with delicious fresh fruits from their garden - made perfect breakfast for us! The room we stayed in was truly one of a kind with this unique and exotic feel to it. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly and are planning to go back again on the future!
