Come on HB get your stories straight - I heard dec and now jan and possibly june 2015 before the construction is completed- which is it? Please remove restaurant from the website or provide a real satus.

HBRJim, Manager at Hanalei Bay Resort, responded to this review

Aloha, Unfortunately I can not give you a date. The restaurant is privately owned and although it is on the resort, we do not have any say or control over their construction schedules. The dates reported previously were dates that were told to us. We support their efforts to open as soon as possible and were excited to pass those... More

My family stayed in 9123/4 for over a week, and we are already eager to come back. If you are looking for a great get-a-way vacation, this is the place to do it. We loved the pool and hot tub as well as all the amenities that our room offered. Our unit was privately rented by Jane and she made... More

Stayed here three nights with my wife. Our room (1521) had apparently just been renovated and was in superb condition with brand-new machines etc. The view from our balcony was very nice, too. Apparently our room and the one next to it could be combined, there was a double door between them. For this reason, you could clearly hear, what... More

We didn't want to go home, what a great place to stay! We spent over a week in units 4104 - 4105. Each day started by waking up with an amazing view of Hanalei Bay and the Napali coast. We could enjoy breakfast on our lanai with a fantastic, unobstructed and jaw-dropping view (see picture in my review.) This was... More

We stayed at the Hanalei Bay Resort the first week of January 2015. The experience was unpleasant and left a lot to be desired. We felt misled by the description of the facilities and amenities since 1) there was no onsite restaurant (it had been closed for several years) and 2) the spa/jacuzzi was not usable/being renovated. The room we... More

Just returned home from a week at HBR. We stayed in studio unit 5201. It has been recently remodeled and we found it to be well appointed and tastefully done. We booked with Chuck and he made that process very easy. The king bed has nice bedding with plenty of comfortable pillows. There is no kitchen but it has a... More

Sitting out on the Lanai overlooking Hanalei Bay watching the surfers in the morning over a cup of coffee, or viewing a stunning sunset with a glass of wine - it doesn't get any better! All 3 units are beautifully appointed for comfort and convenience. The main unit (4302 - in the middle) includes a master bedroom/bath, a loft with... More
