Hanalei Bay Resort Review
This lovely condominium resort overlooks Hanalei Bay and Napali Coast. The resort's upper-level pool is a nice feature, with authentic lava-rock waterfalls, an open-air hot tub, and a kid-friendly sand "beach." Three-story buildings angle down the cliffs, making for some steep walking paths. Units are extremely spacious, with high, sloping ceilings and large private lanai. Rattan furniture and island art add a casual feeling to rooms. Some units are managed by the resort, and others by private owners. All units have kitchens, including the smaller studios. As of this writing, the restaurant and lounge, destroyed by fire in 2011, are due to re-open in 2014.
This pool is one of the best on Kauai, with authentic lava-rock waterfalls, an open-air hot tub, and a kid-friendly sand "beach." But what really sets it apart is the stunning view of Hanalei Bay and the Napali Coast: the architects used this setting to great effect, by building the resort angling down the cliffs, with the pool as the crown jewel.
