Few minor complaints, otw a great experience

The bartenders and servers were very good, food was very fresh and the fruit plate was fresh and spectacular. Prices were of course very expensive, but the view was spectacular. Overall location of the bar is suboptimal and stuck in the corner with less view. Again very minor details, but... read more

My husband, 17 year old daughter and I stayed at the St. Regis for six nights at the end of July. We ate at Nula Kai four times: check in afternoon at 4pm because we were starving after traveling that day, two lunches and one tapas dinner. Overall the food is very good. Even the chicken fingers I had for... More

Awful fish tacos. Taste like reheated frozen food. No view of the ocean and they should have designed this place to have an awesome view. Misses the mark! Order food from your beach chair instead and enjoy the view.

It's a St. Regis hotel so I expect the service to be good and it was good. It's about what you would expect poolside and prices are on par for this type of resort - Soda/pop is $6, beers are $7-10, wine (sky is the limit) Food On average is 18-21. I had a fish sandwich that I liked :)

I was looking forward to a better meal than the night before, because almost anything would be better., but I was wrong. I think I ordered steak but it turned out to be tough and tasteless, So I mostly shared with my husband who was being nice as he didn't like it any more than I did. So, don't waste... More

This was our favorite dining option at the resort. We ate lunch with friends several times and enjoyed every dish and tropical drink. The service was wonderful and the seating area is lovely.

This is at the pool at the St. Regis Hotel. It has a beautiful view of the hotel, pool, and ocean beyond. I had the best fish sandwich ever--a blackened mahi on a soft roll ($21). Pricey, as you would expect, for the drinks too. You're not going there for a cheap meal!

We had been staying on Kauai a week before we went to order a smoothie at this poolside grill. We had not had a decent smoothie until we were served one by this staff....oh my! So glad we enjoyed the strawberry-coconut one....delish. Wonderful fish and chips!

Great friendly staff and the food is quite good. If you are staying at the St Regis Princeville be sure to get the pork sliders!!
