Hawaii is a traveler’s dream. Anyone who wishes to travel can find something here—romance, adventure, relaxation, and so much more. Kauai, the oldest of the main islands, boasts some of the best views in the state. From stunning ocean views to incredible towering mountains, there’s no end to the many attractions and experiences to be had in Kauai. Of course, if you want to have the best time, you have to start off by having the best accommodations. There are plenty to choose from in the area, but we’ve made a list of the five best hotels in Kauai just for you to choose from.
St. Regis Princeville Resort
Spending time at the St. Regis will definitely make you feel like you were in paradise. This resort has some pretty impressive views and amenities. The large pool overlooks the beautiful blue waters of the Hanalei Bay, and there are plenty of resting spots there for you to spend the day sunbathing. You can never get enough of the lush backdrop of the mountains here, and if you weren’t in the pool, you can enjoy the views everywhere else—in the restaurants, in your room, in the common areas. The guestrooms are spacious and luxe, and the service is everything you could ever expect from such a beautiful place.
Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa
This hotel is undoubtedly one of the most sought after resorts in the island of Kauai. We can’t blame visitors because the Grand Hyatt is just nothing short of spectacular. You’ll have access to the warm white sands of Poipu and over 50 acres of lush Hawaiian gardens. The pool amenities are perfect for families with all its activities, but there’s also a quiet area exclusively for adults that just want some relaxation. You can enjoy any one of six restaurants in house and get a true taste of Hawaiian flavors. Best of all, we recommend taking some time out at the spa to make the most out of a relaxing and rejuvenating vacation.
Koa Kea Hotel & Resort
There are so many reasons why the Koa Kea Hotel & Resort has accumulated so many accolades over the years. Koa Kea boasts unbelievable contemporary Hawaiian accommodations, amenities, and world-class service. While many expect this hotel to be a couples’ retreat, there are plenty of room for families here. The hotel is situated right on the beaches of Poipu, where you can get excellent south shore surfing and endless sun. Make your way from the outdoor pool into the hot tub and spa. Sweat it away at the fitness center before you rack up the calories again at any of the hotel’s amazing in-house restaurants. No matter what you do at Koa Kea, you’re guaranteed to have the most memorable time.
Koloa Landing Resort at Poipu, Autograph Collection
If you’re looking for a place where you can stay for longer and feel more like home, the Koloa Landing is the place to be. The Koloa is at the heart of Poipu, a mere stroll away from the beach. Apart from being in the middle of 21 acres of Hawaiian tropical garden, the Koloa offers the largest accommodations you could find anywhere in Kauai. Every single villa here has everything you might need for a longer stay: full kitchen, washer and dryer, a bathroom for every bedroom, and an expensive lanai. Even the studios here have kitchenettes and washer/dryer combos as well. It’s the perfect vacation spot for anyone looking to have a good time.
Kauai Beach Resort
It’s refreshing, and it’s absolutely breathtaking. The Kauai Beach Resort offers 25 acres of beach. It’s the longest in the island as a matter of fact. When you want to take a break from beaching, the Kauai happens to be conveniently located to many restaurants, shopping, and different kinds of entertainment. Once you’re ready to go back to the resort, you can bask in all of its amenities, which include 4 different pool areas, an impressive spa, a fitness center that’s open 24 hours, 2 amazing restaurants, and even a 75-foot lava tube water slide. The fun is nonstop at the Kauai Beach Resort, and you’re definitely not going to want to leave this paradise.
