Luxe rooms and stunning vistas on Kauai

201 Rooms / 51 Suites

Sprawling across 23 acres of Kauai’s North Shore, the opulent St. Regis Princeville Resort sits on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. This luxury resort, perched on a bluff overlooking Hanalei Bay, is the jewel in the crown of Princeville (a 9,000-acre community) and underwent a complete renovation and rebranding (this is the resort’s first stint as a St. Regis) in 2009. The beautiful area around this resort is appropriately known locally as Bali Hai, after the idyllic island in South Pacific. Each of the 252 guest rooms and suites offers a view of the ocean, Hanalei Bay, or the dramatic cliffs through oversized windows. The rooms have been updated with cheerful, contemporary décor and flat-screen TVs. Activities abound, from swimming in the resort’s infinity pool to horseback riding, sea kayaking and tennis. The recently reopened golf courses at Makai Golf Club, designed by master architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr., receive high marks from golf enthusiasts. Dining options run the gamut from casual poolside nibbles to high-end.
