“Beautiful property”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Bali Hai Villas is one of four Wyndham Vacation Resorts in the Princeville area about an hour an a half from Lihue Airport. It is the newest, largest and prettiest regarding the landscaping. We previously stayed here 5 years ago for one week. This time we stayed for 3 weeks from Jan. 14 - Feb. 4 in a two-bedroom unit in one of the newer buildings on the property. Another couple joined us for 13 days of our stay.

We had requested a ground-floor unit away from the construction. We were very pleased with our unit and that we could stay in it for all 3 weeks, however we were still close to the construction area which was sometimes annoying. Some mornings they started work at 7:30-8:00 am. And some days it was impossible to sit on our lanai because of dust plumes drifting over - we were in Unit #1313.

They are constructing a new clubhouse which will have another pool and 2 spas. The main big pool and spa with waterfalls is open for use. It's very nice with lots of seating plus a sandy beach for small children to play beside the shallow pool area.

The two-bedroom unit we had is very comfortable in size for 4 adults or for a family of four. The master bedroom has a king bed with 4-piece ensuite & the guest room had two double beds with 3 piece ensuite. However the mattresses were very soft and basically did not provide any back support. Three of us ended up with sore backs. The living-dining-kitchen area are open concept and very nice. However the cushions on the couch seemed to have lost all their stuffing and really sunk in when you sat on them - again no support.

Housekeeping is once a week from the day you check in. We had loads of bath towels & beach towels. There is a washer and dryer in the unit which we made use of often.

We liked the fact that we could go to the other 3 Wyndham properties and use their facilities - the pool at the Shearwater (cold water) but the views are awesome overlooking the ocean and spotting for humpback whales. It's a small quiet pool with spa - perfect for R & R.

We would stay here again as we loved the size of the unit. Once the construction is finished and they replace the mattresses, it will be very pleasant to stay. Princeville is a very upscale and beautiful area with a grocery store, restaurants and shopping close by. A car is definitely needed to get around.

The resort was over an hour late checking us in and we were supposed to get an early check-in. That's an hour past normal check in time. We asked for help with luggage and the bellman arrived after all the luggage had been dragged upstairs. We wer misinformed about the owners update, there was no way to reduce maintance fees. The 45 minute update took 2 hours. When there were extremely noisy neighbors past 10 pm and we called security; it took over 45 minutes to get security out to quiet them down. Housekeeping comes at the most inconvenient times, we were on a tour from 7-3 and housekeeping couldn't come then, they came at 4:30 when we were tired from our trip. Overall don't stay here if you want any real service.

Second stay here. Nice accommodations stayed here on RCI swap. Waterfall is pretty loud outside 925.

We already knew about the timeshare pitch so we were ready to avoid it. Concierge is not helpful unless you go to their 8:30 am deal. " no way"

Unplug the telephone on arrival to avoid the reminder call about the 8:30 deal or the timeshare propaganda

All in all I would come here again because I know what I'm getting. Though probably would prefer south side of island in winter

We enjoyed are stay there. We stayed for a week in a large 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with a lanai. The unit was was very spacious and modern. The grounds are well kept and the scenery was beautiful. The pools and bbq were great to use. We were near all the beaches and places we wanted to visit.

We stayed for 2 weeks Jan 19th to Feb 2, 2013.
Absolutely loved and enjoyed this place!

Party of 4
My wife and I, our son and his girlfriend stayed in building #17 which is situated close to the check-in building across from a 4-bay storage locker and garbage bins. The pool / faux beach / hot tub area was resonably close, being across the "street" and behind the next row of condos.
4 BBQ's are also there, and 3 more BBQ's were behind us which were visible from our lanai. It would have be SUPER convenient if only there was a back door or even a gate on the lanai.

We declined the offer to attend a condo tour (and the $100.00 prepaid VISA) ... which the concierge desk respectfully abided by. They did call twice more, and again respectfully accepted my polite refusal. We were there as a family, and really didn't want to spend our time in the "shark tank" :)

The pillow-top beds were VERY comfortable ... moreso than our own bed at home! The appliances are all Whirlpool and Cuisinart, and everthing was flawless with the possible exception of the knife block. Somebody had obviously been abusing them.

Roosters. Yup, one or more for every unit, standard issue for every resort, restaurant, parking lot ... you name it! We really didn't mind them, as sun-up was about 7:30 AM during our stay. If they didn't wake you the garbage and/or construction truck would have anyway, as they are working on building a new clubhouse.

Bottom line: We will likely consider becoming owners at this resort when we get a little closer to retirement (5 or 10 years from now) as it would be a GREAT place to "hole up" for couple of weeks every winter. We would likely keep our RCI resort in Florida as well, for exchange purposes.

Queen's Bath ... very beautiful, but unfortunately incredibly dangerous and un-usable in the winter months.

Most beaches are also a lot rougher in the winter. Anini beach was well-protected by a barrier reef, but the coral is hard on your bare feet. Wear water shoes. Poipu was good, but a long drive. We settled for the Hanelai Pier beach (on the river side of the peir) which had about 2-1/2 ft waves. Saw a turtle there too!
Waimea Canyon is a must-see on a CLEAR day. We went on a "partial clearing" day, and found the view at the Kalalau Valley lookout at the end of the road to be 100% obstructed. We hung around for about an hour, waiting for the fog to burn off, and were somewhat rewarded for our patience with a partial view. A perfect view would be stunning.

Kauai is the Garden Isle, lush and green, and it rains in January. We used RCI points to stay here - and I won't go back. The condo was fine, however I did find the ants in the kitchen a little disturbing. We needed an extra bar of soap - sorry! no extra soap allowed. The resort is row after row of condos with parking between them. Only one pool are was open when we were there. The view from our lanai was the single row of palms that separated us from the main road. The view from the master bedroom was the lanai next door, and at night feral cats screamed under the window. We could not see the ocean from the resort - the beach was not an issue since the recommendation is not to swim on the north half of the island in the winter months.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room in the pool area - at least you could see water.

Stayed in #125 two bedroom for 2 weeks. I t is a remodeled unit on the end. Some road noise but tolerable to me. The pool is not heated so pretty cold in January. Hot tub very nice. I would order The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook from Amazon before you get here as it very useful. We are frugal people but our guests talked us into the helicopter ride and I am glad we went. Negotiate and you can get a little better price by booking direct with them. Join Costco if you do not belong and you can always cancel your membership later. Stock up there because the north shore is expensive. Avoid driving thru Kapaa around noon and 5 pm as the traffic is backed up. Happy hour at St Regis is worth while. The walk to Queen's Bath if you are agile is recommended as long as it is not wet. Enjoy your stay!
