Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa Review
Dramatically handsome, this classic Hawaiian low-rise is built into the cliffs overlooking an unspoiled coastline. It's open, elegant, and very island-style, making it Kauai's best megaresort. It has mouthwatering restaurants, including Dondero's and Tidepools. Two-thirds of the rooms have ocean views. Five acres of meandering fresh- and saltwater-swimming lagoons with a decent-sized waterslide—a big hit with kids—are beautifully set amid landscaped grounds. While adults enjoy treatments at the recently renovated Anara Spa, kids can check out Camp Hyatt. The resort has taken strides in reducing its carbon footprint by installing photovoltaic panels, renting hybrid vehicles, establishing a waste-diversion program, and planting an organic herb garden utilized by the in-house restaurants.
Sunny Side Up
Enter the Hyatt Kauai lobby and be dazzled by a tropical palette of velvet greenery, brilliant floral touches, and a water wonder-world. An elaborate pool system borders a white-sand beach fronting the deep sea-blue Pacific. Built into the lava rock on Kauai's balmy south side, this all-season resort has a world-class golf course, exotic restaurants, fabulous spa, and a top children's program. Sip a mai tai at the 25-foot long koa bar in the Stevenson Library, where classic pool tables complement the ambience. Only 15 miles from the wettest spot on earth, Mt. Waialeale, this almost-guaranteed sunny side of the Garden Island assures visitors of the complete tropical vacation.
