We just spent 8 days/7 nights at the Hanalei Bay Resort. First things first, the Princeville/Hanalei Bay area is the best. Second thing, not sure you can call this place a "resort". It's missing a lot of things that you would expect a resort to have: No restaurant, No bar, Not sure there is a fitness center (but they do... More

This resort and Hanalei Bay are an experience not to miss. The resort has just completed renovation of the rooms, the views are stunning and the fire pit for sunsets make the day complete. I loved every minute of it and can't wait to return.

We booked condo 4222 through VRBO. I'm still not completely sure I can put into words how fantastic the view from HBR is. When we pulled up to the lobby I was in awe. I highly recommend walking to the top of the steps that overlook the pool from the lobby before doing anything else. Unlike anything I've ever seen.... More

Mahalo for your review of my condo at Hanalei Bay Resort. Now about that view from the lobby! We just finished the remodel of the lobby a month ago and I am so glad you got to experience that view from the top of the building down to the pool. I remember the first time I set eyes on Bali... More

This is an older resort and so, on the positive side, the rooms are large, the buildings far apart and the grounds spacious. On the negative side, the grounds are just tired. They are trying to upgrade the facility now, but I think it needs a complete overhaul. They are supposedly working on a restaurant but this project has been... More

We are well seasoned travelers to say the least and our stay @ HBR in this magical area of Kauai was an experience of a lifetime. We arrived at the resort to a beautiful entrance and lobby that looked out over waterfalls, pools, rolling hills and Hanalei Bay in the background. Breathtaking to say the least!! Next we were greeted... More

The resort is much improved from the low of 6-12 years ago. Management and staff are friendly and helpful. Prospective guests should be advised when booking that they will need a car as there are no food services on site at present, and beaches,shopping and points of interest are a few miles away. As an owner since 2000 I am... More

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon. We first stayed in Maui, so when we came to Kauai I wanted some place a little less touristy. The resort was in the middle of being remodeled which didn't bother us too much but there wasn't a restaurant or store of any sort on the property. You can walk or they... More

A very beautiful, very tropical, quiet, relaxing resort. Beautiful pools, great tennis program, and stunning views of the beautiful Hanalei Bay and surrounding mountains. We stayed in Banana Building, and will request it again next visit. A place to be as active or relaxed as you choose. We kayaked the river, the ocean., snorkeled, swam, took helicopter tour of the...

Stayed in Unit 4301 owned by Janice & Fritz Leutheuser over New year 2013-2014. We had a fantastic stay, the pictures really gives a true view of the unit and the view. Unit 4301 is wonderfully equipped with nice furniture, cutlery and beach gear. It has a huge kingsize bed with an undisturbed view of Hanalei bay, we woke up... More

A superb start to each day having breakfast on the balcony of condo 4202 with beautiful view of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai. Our condo was well appointed and positioned conveniently within the resort, with easy access to beach, pool and tennis courts. Bar and restaurant were closed for refurbishment but didn't detract from our stay as the condo had... More
