Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa

1571 Poipu Road
Kauai, HI 96756


Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort


Hard to believe that this luxury hotel (one of Hawaii's best) can get "grander," but the new multi-million dollar renovations have taken the hotel's ambience of casual elegance to a new level. One of Hawaii's best luxury hotels and one of the top-ranked tropical resorts in Condé Nast Traveller's annual readers' poll, this four-story resort, built into the oceanside bluffs, spreads over 50 acres that overlook Shipwreck Beach (which is too rough for most swimmers) at the end of the road in Poipu. The $250 million Hyatt uses the island architecture of the mid-1920s to recapture the old Hawaii of the Matson Line steamship era.

The airy atmosphere takes you back to the days of a grand plantation overlooking the sea. This is a comfortable, unostentatious place where you can bring the kids and Grandma. The rooms are large (nearly 600 sq. ft.) and elegantly outfitted. All have marble bathrooms and spacious private lanais; most have ocean views. Club floors have their own concierge and a lounge serving continental breakfast, drinks, and snacks.

The hotel is next door to the Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed Poipu Golf Course.
This 6,959-yard, par-72 course with a links-style layout is the home of the PGA Grand Slam of Golf. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., this challenging course features undulating greens and water hazards on 8 of the holes. The par-4 16th hole has the coastline weaving along the entire left side. You can take the safe route to the right and maybe make par (but more likely bogey), or you can try to take it tight against the ocean and possibly make it in two. The most striking (and most disrespectful) hole is the 201-yard, par-3 on the 17th, which has a tee built on an ancient Hawaiian stone formation. Facilities include a restaurant, a locker room, a pro shop, a driving range, and putting greens.

If you stay here, don't leave without a treatment from the ANARA Spa, the best spa on Kauai. Choose from a variety of massages guaranteed to soothe aching muscles and rejuvenate your senses.
Anara Spa Treatments were voted #1 in North America by Conde Nast Traveler readers for 2008. Also check out the large selection of classes -- some of them free -- at the fitness center.
