We just returned from a week at this resort. We rented a one bedroom condo from the owner in the Palms Building (4222) and could not have been more pleased! The views of Bali Hai and Hanalei Bay from the lanai were breathtaking. The condo was beautifully appointed and had a recently remodeled bathroom and kitchen with top of the... More

Mahalo for taking the time to share your experience at Hanalei Bay Resort and let others know about my condo, #4222. I am delighted you appreciated our lush tropical grounds and fantastic staff. Ryan was our Employee of the Year for 2013 and you can see why he received that award. We have the best staff on the island. I... More

You can rent a privately-owned or resort-owned unit at Hanalei Bay Resort. Definitely go with a privately-owned unit. The resort-owned units are very dated. We have rented many of the private units at HBR and 4302 has been our favorite by far. My husband and I and our two daughters (ages 11 and 13) and my mom rented 4302 and... More

We stayed here for 10 days while on vacation with our family. The location has an unbeatable view, amenities, and beach access. From the time we checked in, until the time we left they were all exceptionally nice and sincerely polite. Ryan, one of the workers who drove us around, was extremely hospitable and made us feel welcome every night... More

This resort is located on the cliffs above Hanalei Bay and has great views of the bay and the mountains, including Bali Hai. The rooms are newly remodeled and are very nice and comfortable. The grounds are very well landscaped and peaceful.

This isn't a luxury resort and the parking gets pretty packed. That being said, it is located in the most beautiful part of the whole island. The view from the grounds and from the rooms facing the mountains and ocean are absolutely incredible. The price is reasonable. Not a bad base from which to enjoy one of the most beautiful... More

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

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
