Hanalei Bay Resort & Suites
Few places are as romantic as Kauaiand few hotels cater to romantics to the extent that this one does. Weddings can be seen almost any day, and the hotel is full of honeymooners, folks on anniversary or vacationing lovebirds. Of course, people who are not in the middle of a great romance can also appreciate this gracious hotel and its gorgeous beach front setting. A myriad of entertainment options are within easy driving distance, but fine dining can be enjoyed right on the property at Bali Hai. Required seven night stay with Saturday to Saturday check in/out. Planned daily resort activites, community BBQs, family picnic area, guided tours, horseback riding, hiking trails.
We've been to Kauai several times, and the 2nd time we decided to stay here. Never stayed anywhere else since. There's nothing like the view of Bali Hai while drinking cocktails at Happy Talk lounge, or eating breakfast at Bali Hai restaurant. I'm partial to the North shore because it's so stunning, so this is the perfect location for me. It's very clean and there's always a perfect smell or site.
We spent a week at this resort and could not bhave been happier! The setting is unbelievable and the staff was helpful and polite. The room was amazing (a studio). I would repeat the visit in a minute! Make sure to see Randy in town at the visitor center for help finding activities. This has the best hot tub too!
I have stayed at Hanalei Bay Resort twice and will be back. Although the beach is a few minutes away, it is breath taking when you arrive. Where else could you see 20 high waterfalls and rainbows to the South and gorgeous sunsets to the West at the same time.
Relaxing and quiet, restuarant food and view are excellent.
Can't wait until I go back...
we were there from sept 14-24,2005. We were married @ the anini beach (@10 minutes aways from the resort)the resort it's self was a dream,it was everything i wanted my trip to kauai to be and more! The staff was very nice and knew us by name! The primere pass gets you free breakfast and 2 drinks everyday! The sunsets were out of this world and that the north shore of kauai is were you want to go for romance and peace and quite that you don't get anywhere else on the islands! We will go back time and time again!!!!
If your looking for paradise you will find it here. The landscape is everything that you would expect to find in Hawaii. The pools have waterfalls to play in as well as the spa which you can sit and enjoy the warm water falling on you, or sit back in the cave and just relax. It is quite a hike down to the beach though but there is always a driver to come and retrieve you for the ride back up. It is close to the town of Hanalei where my favorite restrauant Kalypso is and other facinating shops. The north shore is about 30 minutes away. The rooms were mostly clean, sometimes a little late in the day but they did get clean. The concierge was very helpful at helping us plan all our activities and handing out directions. We will definately be returning.
Well first of all there was an extra $50 charge for cleaning and booking.. Because we booked through celebrity.. If you can BOOK THROUGH THE HANELAI RESORT DIRECTLY. Save yourself $25 if you can. They also charged $25 for cleaning (thats for the day we leave) there was no cleaning for the night we were there. The hotel was nice, great pool setup and location is ok.. you have to have a rental car if you want to see anything. The restaurant was also closed so no food available except for a guy bbqn near the pool.
Overall for the money it was ok.
If you rent through a private owner you won't have the issues mentioned below. Those are million dollar condos and the owners put their love into them. They are really gorgeous. The timeshare owned rooms are going to be reonovated in the next few years. HBR is a beautiful property but you have to book through sites like Summit Pacific to get the best units. The views are outstanding, the pool was voted one of the top ten and the location can't be beat for exploring the North Shore. The restaurant was closed last time I was there, but should reopen next spring. They just put in a small fitness center, they offer massages and they even have a gift shop.
Just rent through an owner for a good experience.
This place was a step out of the typical hotel and right in line with a tropical paradise hotel. The views were incredible and the beach was a very short walk down a path. Did I already mention the views!
