Here now, and we do not want to leave. This is a vacation from our vacation with friends, from Oahu. As noted in other reviews, the two bedroom areas are actually only closed off with lovers. This was totally not a problem for us sharing with our friends. The surf is white noise, always constant. The setting is a paradise... More

Retreat away in this far north, remote location of the island. If you're looking to get away from tourist, this is your spot! Your own beach access, snorkeling out front, surfing a point away, hiking trails in the jungle, one way bridges lead the way to this unplugged paradise! From the time we arrived, we were welcomed and treated like... More

Close to end of the road, and fairly unplugged (no TV, phone, AC, and wifi pretty spotty) but not rich in creature comforts either. Great location if you want to get away from it. Right on the water, though too rough for swimming when we were there great views, and the pool is modest (backside along the road, fenced, but... More

Loved being a the Hanalei Colony Resort. Staff was very helpful. Views and location are beyond description. Close to Napali Coast. Went to bed to the sound of the surf. Great coffee and the coffee shop. Clean condos with everything you need. Pool was secluded and peaceful (seemed newly renovated). Perfect for a family vacation.

We stayed here on the North Shore for the first 4 days of our Honeymoon on Kauai. It's a spectacular location, and we will definitely stay there again when we return someday. Plus they give 10% off on your return visit! It truly is "unplugged", and you feel so peaceful there. Besides, who needs TV's when in paradise?! There is... More

If you don't mind being near the end of the road over several one-lane bridges - and if you won't miss the absence of a TV (there's wi-fi and cell service) - then this is the ideal getaway. Some of the units are right on the beach overlooking Hanalei Bay which is a living postcard. A convenient shuttle service ferries... More

Excellent time in Kauai. We, two adults, and three teenagers, stayed in this beautiful resort on the beach for one week. The view from room was incredible. The accommodation is really more like a small two bedroom apartment with full kitchen and two bathrooms.

We stayed 5 nights here on last December. This is not a hotel. It’s condos that are rented out. It’s probably a time share. We were upgraded at our arrival because the people who rented the condo we got didn’t get there on time. Therefore we saw the condo we were supposed to have and the condo we finally got.... More

My wife and I went here for our honeymoon in 2006. The facilities were clean and well kept. We loved being so close to the water and not having lots of people around. This was, and I believe still is, the closest resort to the Na Pali Coast. We went snorkeling right out our front door which was about 30... More

We have been lucky to travel all over the world and only in the last three months have I really been faithful about reporting on Trip Advisor. Take it from me, if you love out of the norm type hotels, you will love this place. No TVs, no phones, peace and quiet with one of the most beautiful ocean view... More
