In an area which according to folklore was created by the Fire Goddess, Pele, and named after the 19th Century Hawaiian Prince who frequented the area, 1 Hotels Hanalei Bay promises a luxurious getaway from the stresses of daily life. The 251 rooms and suites promote tranquillity with their natural colour palette and contemporary Hawaiian décor. Sumptuous furnishings, infinity pools and cuisine which celebrates local flavours are all waiting for you.
Reach 1 Hotels Hanalei Bay in style in a private limousine from Princeville Airport, 10 minutes away or Lihue Airport, 45 minutes away. Overlooking the Hanalei Bay, on the north shore of Kauai Island take advantage of the softest sands, clearest lakes and rainforests teeming with wildlife. Horseback ride along the Na Molokama mountain range and snorkel in the reefs of the hotel’s Pu’I Po’a beach, or pop over to Princeville shopping plaza or Hanalei town, just four miles away and delight in the Kauai crafts shops and fashion boutiques. Top your visit off with a day in the poolside Halele’a Spa, or with a few holes at the famous Makai Golf Club.
All of the rooms and suites emulate Kauai’s abundance of nature with a contemporary Hawaiian décor and all the modern refinements you require. All boast king-sized beds and local Kauai artwork and marble bathrooms but for added luxury, we’d opt for the Bali Hai Signature suite, named after the legendary mountain range that you can see from your suite. Sprawling over two levels and elegantly decorated, the suite boasts a private terrace with panoramic views and a telescope to help spot the stars. To top it off, you’ll even have a personal butler on hand to take care of your every desire.
