We had a great stay at Hanalei Bay Resort., the staff were very welcoming and helpful to us and the property was a joy to walk around. It felt like I was in a botanical garden. It is such a special spot overlooking Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai. The rooms have recently been remodeled and everything looked great. What a... More

We have travelled in over 25 countries in the world and have slept mostly in youth hostels and b&bs. This is THE MOST EXPENSIVE room we have ever paid for, and it is the in the 3 dirtiest places we have ever stayed at (in comparison, we have paid 20$ a night for the other 2 places, compared to the...

Lovely location ...just too much construction going on...no way for a peaceful relaxing time. We were told that the restaurant would re-open in spring 2014...they will be lucky to open in spring 2020 at the rate they are going! It is a bit of a drag to have to drive out for dinner every night. That said Kauai is a... More

We spent a delightful week at HBR. The view of "Bali Hai" from our unit was stunning. It will be nice when the bar, restaurant, and front office are re-opened. The walk down to the beach was very nice, and the beach chair rentals were first-rate.

We have stayed at Hanalei Bay many times in the past 14 years we have seen the good and the bad, the resort, now being owned by the owners themselves seem to be going in the right direction. The room remodels are a very big improvement, add that to grounds that have always been perfectly maintained and a view that... More

We enjoyed our first visit as owners. The views are very beautiful and the grounds are very well kept. The rooms are in the process of being renovated and we were in a newly renovated one which was very nice! We did have an issue with the room which caused us to move to another renovated unit on the third... More

HBR is an exceptional resort because it is located in paradise. The resort itself is very nice and is in the process of being significantly upgraded but the really fabulous part of the this place is where it is located in the middle to Kauai's north shore with a fabulous view of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hi. The staff are... More

My husband and I stayed in a studio room recently. It was nicely maintained and we had a wonderful view from the balcony. The resort is very close to the St Regis and is a short walk to the beach. It is an exceptional value for the North Shore. This is our second trip to Kauai and we wanted to... More

Mid March we spent a week in one of the two-bedroom timeshare units at Hanalei Bay Resort. We have been coming to the resort every other year since 2003. The recovery of the resort from previous years of mismanagement has been outstanding! The grounds are beautiful and the views fantastic- most better than those of the very expensive St. Regis....
