Fodor's Review

Built into the cliffs above Hanalei Bay, this swanky Starwood resort offers expansive views of the sea and mountains, including Makana, the landmark peak immortalized as mysterious Bali Hai island in the film South Pacific. The spacious guest rooms are comfortable, with high-quality bed linens, twice-daily housekeeping, and original artwork. Bathrooms are all elegant marble with a privacy window—flip a switch and it goes from clear to opaque so you can see the sights outside without becoming an attraction yourself. The restaurants serve excellent food and the pool is lavish with extremely comfortable lounge furniture. The St. Regis Bar hosts nightly entertainment and the huge windows showcase gorgeous sunsets and a breathtaking view of Hanalei Bay. The new in-house spa connotes a Zen-like atmosphere with traditional Hawaiian healing and Western techniques. There's shuttle service to the resort's two top-ranked golf courses and tennis center.

St. Regis Princeville

We visited Princeville in October. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay, even though there were 2-3 weddings at the resort during our stay. The staff were courteous and helpful. We enjoying our french press coffee poolside in the mid-morning. The beach is just a few steps from the pool with excellent conditions for surf, or stand up paddle board. Th rooms have been renovated and are comfortable.

St. Regis Princeville Resort Review

What’s the best way to start a life together? Start it at the St Regis on the island of Kauai in the Hawaiian Islands. I don’t think you can find a more romantic place to spend time with the love of your life! I travel a lot for business, and hotels are hotels; however, the difference maker is the staff, and the St. Regis staff lead by it’s General Manager Milton Sgarbi (who before this hotel’s remodel and reopening had just opened the

St. Regis in Bora Bora). Milton’s first class staff is his extended family and everyone in his family makes it their goal to have you feel like you’re the only guests at the hotel – Real VIP treatment. They give you the space and privacy you want, but are also there to fill any request. Princeville is a great area and the island is beautiful, but the real treat is the hotel and it’s staff, they treated us like I always want to treat my new bride. We met several couples who come back over and over again. Start your new life together at a place that will always create great memories that will bring you back to why you’re together in the first place – LOVE. Brett Hunsaker, EVP Grubb & Ellis

You deserve it!

If you agree with this statement then this is the place for you. If you don't agree, or have self imposed restructions like cash on your mind - forget it. For those who deserve it - then you must go and indulge. Wonderful place, soon to be even more wonderful considering they are upgrading the facility. Definitely a place to go back to once it reopens in late 2009. We spent a wonderful 2 weeks here this year because we do deserve it! Life is too short.

My husband and I were married at the hotel at Princeville in 1994. We have returned many times since then at different times of the year. We live on a beautiful Florida beach and we both travel worldwide for business and have been fortunate to visit Phuket, Bali, Fiji, the Greek Isles, the French and Italian Rivera, Croatian coast, Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean Islands and this is still our favorite place to visit. You don't care what time of day it

is, what day it is and what happens in the world when you are there. The pool and beach areas are beautifully situated. The rooms are beautifully furnished. The restaurants have spectacular views and varied selections. Attention to detail is taken with their customers from the time you arrive to the time you depart. Splurge if you must to get an idea of what paradise really is.

Best Resort in Hawaii

We stayed at the Princeville for our honeymoon and it was perfect. Beautiful beach, daily waterfall views, impeccable service. I cannot rave enough about the service, atmosphere, conceirge desk - they really help you! Restaurants were excellent at the hotel and breakfast was a dream every morning - on an outdoor balcony with waterfall views. We will definitely go back and stay here. Only reason to stay anywhere else - the drive to the southern

part of the island. Stay here at least half of your trip.
