Fodor's Review

Though it's across the street from Kuhio Beach, the Hyatt is actually considered oceanfront, as there's no resort between it and the Pacific Ocean. An open-air atrium with three levels of shopping, a two-story waterfall, and free nightly live entertainment make this one of the liveliest lobbies anywhere. Its 10,000-square-foot, two-level luxury spa, Na Hoola, has 16 treatment rooms and an array of specialty therapies including the Lomi Wawea, a traditional healing massage

focusing on the feet. Dining options include Japengo, which offers Pacific Rim cuisine in a warm dining area with communal tables and an interactive sushi bar; Shor, which has sustainable seafood and outdoor seating; and Swim, a poolside bar and lounge. Authentic daily on-site activities, including lei making and hula dancing, are led by a Native Hawaiian cultural practitioner. Aloha Friday evening performances showcase Polynesian tattooing, and a Samoan fire-knife performance. And in November 2013, the hotel began hosting a farmer's market from 4 to 8 pm every Thursday in the Pualeilani Atrium Shops with vendors selling local produce and wares.

Great times

My husband and I stayed here when we had our wedding at a nearby beach. We are going back this year and are planning to stay at the Hyatt again. They have a great breakfast buffet and the food was good at all the restaurants in the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. This is the best hotel I've ever stayed in.

Not more scrambled eggs

The Ocean/Diamond Head view from my room was the only good about this hotel. The buffet included with my package had no variety, the other restraunts in the hotel catered mostly to Japanese guest. There was no sound proofing and everything inside and outside the hotle could be heard. Stay somewhere else.

Worst Spa Ever

The hotel was in a convient location for being across the street from the beach. The bus stop was near by and there's a car rental place right underneth and you could walk to a lot of places. The pool is small.The rooms were not impressive. The food was over priced and not that good..if you stay here eat else where. The spa was nice but no where near what you would expect in Hawaii and not worth the price. The spa service was even worse. In my opion

your paying for a luxury hotel and just getting a budget hotel.

Only Better View is in Heaven. I'll Wait!

If you want to see ocean and dolphins at play, this is the best place since SeaWorld. The service was first class, the hotel was stunning and the food, perfect.
