Recently returned from a five-night stay at the St. Regis Princeville Resort and have nothing but wonderful things to say about it. Highly recommend the St. Regis Princeville for couples looking to get away and relax.
Hotel is built on a cliff side and is split-level, so if your room is on the second floor you have to take two elevators to get to your room. Sounds annoying, but really isn't a big deal at all. Rooms are exceptionally quiet and well maintained. We were amazed at how quickly our room was cleaned during the day and enjoyed the evening turndown service.
On the North Shore, the St. Regis Princeville is about 35-40 minutes from the LIH airport and also removed from the more populated South Shore (where the Grand Hyatt is located), but we really enjoyed the location. It's away from the more touristy areas, but still close enough to a few towns, namely Kapa'a and Hanalei, that you don't feel completely isolated. Princeville is akin to a subdivision and reminded us a bit of Celebration in Orlando, Florida. That is to say, it's well manicured, controlled, and kind of vanilla. But, it's also safe and quiet.
Services / Amenities
Parking is completely valet and is $30/night. We didn't have any issues with the service and they were usually quick with bringing our car around.
One of the best services offered is the use of a hospitality room and/or showers in the spa if you have a late departing flight. Basically, our flight was at 8:40pm, and while we asked (and received) late checkout, we were also offered the use of a room/shower for a little over an hour to catch a quick nap and shower before we left for the airport. This was a remarkable service and one which made our travel back to the mainland so much more enjoyable after spending a long day at the beach.
Pool was nice and service was always great. There are two jacuzzis that we used on most nights. Fair number of kids around, but nothing to discourage couples without kids from staying here and/or using the pool
Hotel Restaurant / Restaurants
We ate breakfast at the hotel restaurant a few times and enjoyed it, though it was included in our package. We skipped Sunday brunch because it cost $60+ per person, which we thought was overpriced no matter what they were serving. Service was always friendly and we never had to wait.
If you're looking for nearby places to eat, check out the following: Kiluea Fish Market (really good poke, also great vegetarian options) and Mermaid's in Kapa'a (our favorite place - try their wraps, also great for vegetarians). Postcards was so-so.
Highly recommend staying here, but get out of Princeville and check out the North Shore and nearby towns.
