It never occurred to me that the hotel wasn't on the beach, but in the end it didn't matter. Its walking distance to the beach and the fancy Westin hotel. The swimming pool at the resort was really pretty and the views in every direction were stunning. Don't know about now, but back then (maybe 20 years ago) there were... More

This is our second trip to the north shore area and our first stay here. Great views and location. The beach area is nice and you are able to rent equipment from the St. Regis such as surf boards and stand up paddle boards. The grounds here are beautiful. Beware that the parking lot is a nice stroll away but... More

My family travels to Kauai every other year and always chooses Hanalei Bay Resort to stay at. The views are absolutely breath taking, the pool area(s) are amazing and a nice place to relax at, also it is walking distance to the beach (Hanalei Bay) with is superb! HBR is near a very convenient shopping center/grocery store so you don't... More

We just finished an 8 night stay - our 2nd over the years - at HBR. You can rent a very nice condo here for a fraction of what it costs to stay at the top rated St. Regis and get nearly the same idyllic view. The grounds are impeccably maintained, the staff is courteous, warm and attentive, and the... More

We have stayed at Hanalei Bay Resort many times, as recently as January 2014 to as far back as February 1990. Many of the units are quite dated in their decor, as they are individually owned and have been around for awhile now. The services have changed over the years, especially after the fire which destroyed the old Bali Hai... More

We stayed at Hanalei Bay for a week for our honeymoon in Kauai. We were very pleased with the staff, the rooms, and the grounds. Everyone was so helpful and nice! We worked with Dai at the concierge desk and she was so nice and was very helpful with getting information about our excursions. The pool is a lagoon style... More

We stayed here a week and thankfully we could upgrade to a bigger apartment and we got a huge apartment with Amazing views of the Hanalei bay. The sunsets from the resort are magical and there's a private beach that the resort shares with the St Regis just a short walk down where you have the most perfect sunsets. The... More

We have just spent 3 nights at the HBR and loved it! The view from our lanai was spectacular. The room and lanai were lovely and the hotel facilities were great. Only negatives were that the restaurants were closed for renovations however from what we can see the views of the bay when these re-open will be magical. The resort... More

We have rented a condo at HBR via VRBO twice. Plumeria 8232 (2 bedroom with kitchen/washer and dryer) and Palms 4106 (studio). We would highly recommend both (however somewhat reluctant to do so because we want them available for US on our next trip, ha!). I'll include photos from both lanais, but you can check out pictures and amenities for... More

My partner and I have stayed in Unit 4221 twice and would not hesitate to return. While this unit is a studio, it is a comfortable space for two people and very well equipped. We hope to return with friends next time and rent both 4221 and 4222. Many have very adequately described the beautiful grounds, the serenity and magnificent... More
