Open in 1990, Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa was designed with its natural surroundings in mind. The architecture was meant to be reminiscent of 1920s and ’30s Hawaii, conjuring thoughts of a relaxing space with lush gardens and spectacular views of Keoneloa Bay. The low-rise structures are built right into the hillside, appearing to almost blend into the landscape. No building is higher than the tallest coconut tree, and the resort gently slopes down to a stretch of white-sand beach. The walkways, lobby and even the full-service Anara Spa are open to the island’s tradewinds. And everything from the furniture in the lobby to the décor in the 602 guest rooms is done in earthy tones and natural materials to evoke a romantic sense of place.
