My mother, Amy Hofschneider, and auntie, Julie Castro, stayed at Kanoa Resort this past Thursday for an early Mothers' Day retreat (May 11-12, 2017). They had a wonderful time at the hotel, and it was because of the hotel's excellent staff, especially their top manager Glenn, who is a tremendous asset to the hotel. The staff made sure they had...

Room was made perfectly everyday and Ms. Doris was very kind and sweet. I want to thank Mr.Ricky at the Isla cafe and pool side bar. He went extra miles...

We have spent wonderful 2 weeks on paradise island od Saipan with my friends. Enjoying Saipan marathon and also excellent stay at Kanoa. Great beach bar with great sunset and beach volleyball and perfect weather in March. Kanoa offers very good value for money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Leisure.Comfort.Kanoa Nestled on Saipan's finest stretch of white, sandy beach, the Kanoa Resort Saipan offers the best of both worlds with a comfortable, tropical ambience that transports the soul to pure relaxation, yet equally stimulates with its proximity to the area's vibrant shopping and entertainment. Beautiful surroundings combined with a friendly 'Hafa Adai' service have made Kanoa Resort Saipan a truly unique resort hotel with local flavor and hospitality. All 224 guest rooms offer pleasing comfort and most feature breathtaking ocean views, bringing glimpses of sea and sand. Décor is warm yet refined, naturally complementing the setting. Rooms in the Emerald Tower offer a spacious setting, with one of the largest room sizes on island. Located just steps from the beach, two pools span half the length of the hotel and boasts rich blue "lagoon-like" waters and numerous relaxing lounges. The festive-hued waterslides also add a spark of fun and excitement to the landscape. The resort's gorgeous beachfront is continually regarded as one of Saipan's best and is lined with colorful umbrellas along the sand. Various dining options include the Isla Cafe & Terrace and the oceanfront Barefoot Beach BBQ with a tropical island show featuring local dancers performing traditional and Polynesian dances. The hotel's 330 square meters of meeting and function space can accommodate groups up to 200 guests and offers numerous function capabilities. This area is conveniently located in its own section of the resort. Children may enjoy fun in the sun at the resort's Kids Fun Zone. Activities include a poolside playroom, bouncy house, and interactive games. ... more   less
