You definitely feel remote here… and that’s the point. Very quiet and relaxing. No noise issues with the neighbors, and it was wonderful to sleep with the windows open and hearing the waves. No phones and television, but complimentary wi-fi and good mobile reception if you still need to have contact with the outside world. Decent pool, but it’s completely... More

We booked this using points & didn't look too much into the place. My husband and I were both pleasantly surprised at how relaxing, peaceful and beautiful this little resort was! We had stayed the previous couple days at a big resort on the south shore so this was an unexpectedly delightful change. We had an ocean view room on... More

Our stay was wonderful. We were upgraded to an oceanfront room which was very unexpected and very welcome. The room was perfect, we had absolutely no complaints. The staff very friendly and comforting. They made us feel very safe given the fact that tropical storm Darby was due to make shore in a few hours. Thankfully it missed us. I... More

Good: First, its worth the money, you will be glad you stayed there. We stayed 3 days in late July. You can't beat the location. Its about 2 miles from the end of the road at Ke'e Beach and Kalalau Trail, both of which we did and loved. Its a quick drive to Hanalei for groceries and enjoying that area.... More

Best coffee shop in the world. Fantastic coffee. And the view to die for. Ocean or mountain. Take your pick. They sell jewelry and art painting. I even bought some funky funny paintings. I come to Napili art gallery and coffee shop every morning. Paradise

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.
