My husband and I decided to take a second honeymoon this year and found the Hanalei Colony Resort so perfect! We walked right off our back deck onto a beautiful sandy beach with our Mai Tais and watched the sunset almost every night. There is a very nice pool, spa and a great restaurant on site. The staff made us... More

Our third trip to HCR, words can't explain the true ALOHA SPIRIT we have experienced. We celebrated my wife's birthday there, from check in to check out, we had a fabulous time. The true warmth and experience was so outstanding. Quality time, enjoying the crystal clear waters, the roominess and beautiful surroundings made it absoultley perfect. Just listening to the...

Kauai is pure heaven in my opinion, Hanalei is heaven within heaven. We have stayed at the Hanalei Colony Resort the past 3 years and have made about 10 trips to the islands over the last 15 years. The resort is a great place, staff is friendly, rooms are clean (ok remodel of the rooms this year). Set up of... More

Walk a few feet from your condo at the Hanalei Colony Resort and you'll be on the beach in Hanalei Bay. Drive about ten minutes from the resort and you'll be at one of Kauai's best beaches, Ke'e Beach and at the start of the Kalalau Trail. I much prefer the down-to-earth, laid back feel of this resort to the... More

This resort is located in the most beautiful part of Kauai, Hanalei! The grounds are beautifully kept. This isn't a resort but more like condos you rent for a home away from home experience. Our room was located in the K building. The room was very large and new. It had a nice big bed area, kitchen, two bathrooms, and... More

Stayed here awhile back with our family, best trip to Kauai ever! Loved it, no TV in room, was right in front of the ocean , so beautiful! Close to so many sights & gardens, Hanalei is so scenic. It rained really hard while we were there, got to see some really awesome waterfalls!

My wife and I booked the HCR for 10 days and it was absolutely fantastic. Lots of places to stay on Kaua'i but the HCR is a STANDOUT HIT.

Our first time travelling to Kauai for Honeymoon. We had got the J3 (Ocean Front) and we were just few feet away from water. The view was breathtaking from our balcony though we wished we had got J4 (you would have more unobstructed view). We also opted for romantic room set up. It was fantastically arranged with welcome leis, champagne... More

We stayed in the amazing J4 and it was like floating on the ocean....A truly blissful experience! Everything was perfect with the view of the water and the lush mountains plus the stunning sunrises, the snorkeling you could not have asked for more!
