We've been to Kauai many times before and wanted to concentrate on the North Shore this trip so chose the Hanalei Colony Resort--I've had it on my radar for many years. Our condo was a oceanfront two bedroom (one with a queen bed and the second with two pull out twins-not comfortable for adults) and very spacious with two full... More

We had a second-floor ocean view room but still the ocean was only a rock throw to the beach. We were two fifty-something gals who have known each other since junior high school and still keep in touch even though we live on different coasts. The two bedroom, two bath set up was perfect for us. Days and nights were... More

I stayed at Hanalei Colony Resort for an extended period of time. It is located in Ha'ena, about a 15-minute drive from Hanalei where you will find shops, restaurants, and the famous Hanalei Bay. The property is beachfront (I heard the waves from my unit). The same stretch of beach includes Tunnels Beach, Ha'ena Beach Park, and Ke'e Beach. I... More

Or family of four stayed in J1, an oceanfront two bedroom. I thought we'd miss having AC, but we did not. The ocean breeze really was ideal. We did not miss the TV either. I would not call the Wi-fi spotty as others have, it just makes your sign in repeatedly. It was sufficient for the kids to stream Netflix... More

If you want conveniently located lodgings from with to see all of Kauai, Hanalei Colony Resort is not for you. If you want to be immersed in the rugged, lush beauty of the North Shore of Kauai and don't mind a 10 minute drive into town, then you will love it here. We certainly did. We loved that three of...

If you love to camp outdoors, then you will love this place. If you cannot tolerate camping and need everything to be sparkling clean and new, as well as can't let got of modern day amenities, then this is not a place for you. Our unit seemed to be the last one to be updated. As we walked by the... More

We recently stayed for 5 nights with my husband and 9 year old daughter. We were in an ocean view room, 2nd floor. The unit was very spacious and clean. The views amazing! The kitchen was well stocked for anything you might need. The bathrooms were a bit rustic, but again, clean and no complaints. The king size bed was... More

My wife and stayed here with our teen age son and his friend. We had a garden view but were still able to see the ocean from our Lanai. The unit was simple but had everything we needed including a small kitchen that had all the pots, pans and utensils that we needed. They have two nice gas grills at... More

We loved this place. We stayed in an oceanfront unit on the ground floor. There's no a/c, but we did not need it in late June, because the tradewinds kept the place very cool, if a bit humid. The real-life white noise of the surf made for uninterrupted sleep despite all the windows staying open all the time. The beach... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights. I was perfect for us. I like the fact that it wasn't a mega resort and you really got the feel of Kauai and the north shore. There was an nice ocean breeze every night so we slept with windows and door open -- no need for AC. The rooms itself... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kauai's only north shore beachfront resort is nestled on a gentle curve of white sand beach. These spacious 2-bedroom, 2-bath condominiums with complete kitchens are magically serene and bounded by Kauai's untamed beauty. Gourmet restaurant, day spa, pool, hot tub and coffee shop are all located on the beautifully menicured grounds. Located at the gateway to the famous Na Pali coast, Hanalei Colony Resort is totally unspoiled, unplugged and unforgetable. ... more   less
