This was a family vacation for 3 days with our college age daughter and 10 year old son. We had a great time. This place makes you feel that you have left the world behind. The accommodations are low key and very clean. They have recently been renovated and have a small kitchen, "open" bedroom, and a large living room... More

June of 2010 my husband and I got married at the Hanalei Colony Resort. HCR served as our location for the ceremony and reception for our destination wedding that included 30 of our closest friends and family. The location is secluded and picturesque with all the amenities. We had the most perfect wedding. The events team was amazing! They gladly... More

My friend and I had a wonderful beachside massage at the Hananei Day Spa. The staff was friendly and the therapist was very good. We went on a recommendation from a Fodors book. We were in a beachside a frame hut and the sound of the ocean and warm breezes made the massage even more relaxing. Very good experience. RAK... More

When we arrived to our ocean view room, we were surprised to be upgraded to a premium oceanfront room. The setting was serene and beautiful. The room was updated, but not fancy. I would call the decor "relaxed". The only con was that the bedroom was separated by louvered windows, but it comfortably fit our family of 4. The kids'... More

Unspoiled, Unplugged, Unforgettable. Not the spot for those looking for luxury, action or calm beach. But for others looking for an escape from the rat race - perfect. No TV, phones but complimentary WiFi. An older resort (2 stories) but units have recently been updated and comfortably furnished. Kitchen small but very well equipped (no dishwasher). Condos have an open... More

We LOVED our stay at Hanalei Colony resort. The purpose of the trip was for a wedding. Bree the wedding planner was outstanding. She did a fantastic job. The entire staff was so warm and welcoming. We arrived on Xmas day so the office was closed but we had great directions to get to our room, in the room there... More

We found this very expensive for what you get. While the view was great (very few units have a great view), there was no dishwasher, washer/dryers are in a separate building and cost $, units were smaller than we expected. We paid for a "premium" oceanfront which is supposed to have 2 bathrooms-we have 1 1/2 baths which is a... More

Hanalei Colony Resort was supposed to be 5 nights of our trip to Kauai, but we were so disappointed in the room and location that we ended up moving to a different hotel. At the time that we booked, the Web site did not have pictures of the rooms. They've since upgraded the site and have fairly representative pictures, though... More

You can feel civilization peeling off of you as you pass Princeville, head down the curvy road towards Hanalei and Kauai's North Shore, and cross your first one lane bridge that blessedly limits traffic into this most unspoiled part of Kauai. By the time you get to the funky,surfing (and touristy) town of Hanalei itself you are feeling free and... More
