With 50 acres of oceanfront views, spectacular flora and fauna, and a commitment to excellent service, the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa strikes the perfect balance between the aloha spirit and Hawaiian elegance. Classic Hawaiian-style architecture featuring open courtyards and lush gardens welcomes guests with the true spirit of aloha. All standard rooms are a spacious 500 square feet and feature a lanai with chairs and a table. Guest rooms feature rich mahogany furniture and elegant tropical decor.

Celebrate the sun in an aquatic playground, with a quiet adult pool, meandering manmade rivers, a 150-foot water slide, and a 1.3-acre saltwater lagoon. Golf at Poipu Bay Resort, escape to Anara Spa, or savor the flavors of the island at six restaurants and lounges. The award-winning Anara health and fitness spa is the perfect place to be pampered. In addition, there are classes in fitness, nutrition, health, and stress management. Beauty counseling is also available.

Six restaurants and six bars/lounges provide the perfect places to relax. Try Dondero's for Italian, or Tidepool's for Pacific Rim cuisine. For something a little more casual, there's the Poipu Bay Grill & Bar, or Hale Nalu for poolside dining. Don't forget the Ilima Terrace, which serves a lavish breakfast buffet as well as lunch.

There are myriad activities to choose from during your time at Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa. Immerse yourself in the charm of the Garden Isle on your Kauai resort vacation. Fill your days with your favorite pastimes: golf on our championship Robert Trent Jones, Jr. course, or perfect your serve at a tennis clinic. Evening brings the spectacle of the torch lighting and the tradition of luau. Whether you prefer action-packed adventures, blissful relaxation, or playing on the sandy beach while the kids take advantage of Camp Hyatt, you'll find a little piece of paradise at our luxurious Kauai resort. There is much to explore on our beautiful island. Outside the resort, activities range from helicopter tours to gallery-hopping and everything in between.

Greening Your Life: Part of the Apple Vacations Greening Your Life initiative, this property uses 100% of its green waste for compost and also sends wet waste from kitchens to pig farmers for feed, which helps to reduce landfill waste considerably. Waste cooking oil is collected and processed into biodiesel fuel, while the 4,000 sq. foot on-site hydroponics farm supplies the resort's restaurants and events with approximately 120lbs. of fresh produce per week.

Landscaping is tended to with biological pest controls over harsh chemical options.

The property also utilizes heat produced by the air-conditioning system by converting the output into heat water for guestrooms and swimming pools. On top of that, nearly 60,000 sq. ft. of grass-covered roofing helps to reduce cooling needs. Guests can also enjoy cashmere-soft robes, which are made from 100% recycled bottles.

Awesome resort with an amazing breakfast buffet!
MARIA R.
Jun 09 2017
The is a beautiful resort and their Breakfast Buffet is amazing with an omelette bar and a huge variety of other fresh foods to pick from. They have a high tech fresh water bottle filtration station placed throughout the hotel to refill the water bottles they give you when checking in. It was so convenient. Their spa was one of the best I've experienced. Their staff is super friendly. I love this place and hope i can return again in a few years.

Gorgeous hotel

the resort is gorgeous, but if you are looking for a swimmable beach then this is not the hotel. The seawater lagoon and pool make up for it and we did not miss it at all. Service and food selection at the casual dinning by the lobby could be better.

Grand Hawaii Kauai Vacation
KIRK S.
Sep 13 2012
The Grand Hyatt Kauai staff met my husband and I at the entrance with greeting lei's and from there swept us into the Grand foyer that was absolutely breath taking with a Grand ocean view with open ocean breezes fresh with the fragrances of Hawaii. The hotel was always pristine clean and staff greeted you every passing "aloha"! We were in heaven!

We booked at the Hyatt on Kauai because we had stayed there previously and had a great experience. This time we went and had a less than great experience. At check in we found that the hotel knew nothing about our breakfast each morning and found that our rooms were not adjoining as they were supposed to be. we had to speak to the front desk 4 times before they stopped charging us for breakfast each morning. The room change was made the very next day. We felt that we should not have had to deal with this when on our family vacation. Otherwise the breakfast staff were very friendly and accomodating. The maid service was also very accomodating and helpful.

strong smell in room from day 1

There was a strong smell in the room from day 1 which never improved. They don't know what the smell was. Their engineers are investigating and they promissed they would let me know when they find out and if it is toxic or not. It has been 5 days since the incident and still haven't heard about it.

Excellent choice. One of the great properties worldwide. Lavishly landscaped, Gorgeous pool, Beautiful rooms, Great staff. Bring a float with you to use on the lazy man river. Beach is not recommended for swimming, but beaches are all around the area. Rent a car and explore the Island. Try Tidepools restaurant at the hotel for a nice, but expensive dinner. For cheaper bites go to Makai Sushi and get a Gorilla Bowl. Try Humora's Noodle Stand in Lihui. Go to Waimea canyon. Take a helicopter ride if you can afford it. Travel up to Princeville , Tunnels Beach and Hanalai Bay. You will be extremely happy you booked this hotel!

One of the most Beautiful Hotels and Fantastic Staff ever!

If you come to the island of Kauai, you must enjoy your stay at the Grand Hyatt, Poipu! When you enter the hotel, you will be amazed at the beauty of the ocean and beach before you, along with the grounds of the hotel. The swimming pools are pure relaxation! The staff is remarkable in their attention to detail. The restaurants serve amazing food. If you want to be spoiled, stay at the Grand Hyatt, Poipu!

Always Good

We have stayed here many times and are never disappointed. The only bad thing I can say is that the restaurant at the gold course doesn't have a traditional breakfast menu anymore. Try to stay in, (I guess it's the north wing,) away from the pool. It is more quiet, but it is still easy to get to the pool if you walk on the path. It does get confusing finding your way around, especially in the bowels of the north wing, but it a nice place to be lost for awhile. I can't say enough good things about the staff or the spa and fitness center. The pool is great and there was a seal sleeping on the beach when we were there. Have fun!

The Grand Hyatt Kauai remains one of the great resort hotels in the islands. Upon arrival, one is greeted by a cheerful bellman, and valet parking is offered but not required. The main lobby is spacious, open and airy, opening at the back end onto a huge view of the terraced, landscaped grounds and the Pacific Ocean. The trade breezes carry the scent of fresh, growing things, and a hint of the sea. It is impossible not to relax just walking in the front door. Checking in at the registration desk is a pleasure. Staff are friendly, and adequately numerous that there is not a lot of standing in line. The bellman has one’s luggage on a cart,which is delevered when desired. If the room is ready on check in, the bellman leads the guest to the room. The rooms are spacious, clean, and very quiet. At the last minute (day of arrival), we reserved a “pool view” room — the best we could get short of going to the suite level, on short notice, and only one step above the basic garden view room. We were delighted to find that our view was really of the lush tropical grounds, over which we could see the top of the pool bar, and the ocean, including the big rock formation at the end of Shipwreck Beach. Not all “pool view”rooms have that view, but — wow. The grounds are so lushly landscaped and arranged so that one is never really staring into another building, unless making a specific effort to do so. There are winding paths throughout the complex, to the pools, restaurants, and amenities, including an extensive fitness room, spa, and club level spa/gym service e that includes a sensational locker room, sauna, private lap pool, and jacuzzi spa. We did not opt for the club level, but were allowed to peek in. Food for thought, next trip perhaps. We did eat at every food venue on campus. We had coffee and light breakfast items on the Seaview Terrace, the spectacular dais at the back of the main lobby building. We also enjoyed evening cocktails and the sunset live music and hula show there. During the day, while out at the adult pool area, we had drinks and lunch delivered to us by cheerful, attentive wait people. This service extends all the way down to the beach. We had great dinners at Stevenson’s Library, Dondero’s, and Tidepools — all memorable. We also had several breakfasts at the Ilima Terrace, both buffet and ordering from the menu. Everything was fresh, locally sourced, hot items served hot, fruit and salads served cool or cold as appropriate. And BTW, the coffee was terrific everywhere. A guest could stay at the Grand Hyatt for a week, never leave the grounds, and never feel bored. The complex is large enough to allow walks on the beach and on the grounds, up to the golf course and back. There are plenty of places to eat and shop. The views are beautiful and change through the day. On the other hand, the Grand Hyatt Kauai is a few minutes away from Poipu Beach, and two nice shopping centers with several very nice restaurants, stores, and (still, in Hawaii), a Long’s Drug store. A few.more minutes of driving access Spouting Horn, or Koloa Town, with its own shops and restaurants. In other words, the Grand Hyatt is minutes away from everything there is to do in and around Poipu. For price, convenience, amenities, and beauty, the Grand Hyatt Kauai is hard to beat. Next time we visit Poipu, look for us there.

Fantastic property, so-so lounge and room cleanness
Kirill B,
Wed Oct 18 03:25:53 EDT 2017
Liked the property itself - ok beach, good location, close to other attractions. Golf course is above and beyond! The rooms were kind of dated to my liking, the carpets are not super clean - kids socks turned black after 10 minutes in the room. I guess they are only vacuumed but never washed, or maybe just the carpet material is not the most dirt resistant, donno, but have not seen the same in other hotels. The lounge service is very good, ladies there are ery helpful, but food is primitive, exactly same menu for every meal except 1 dish that keeps changing, which is super boring and let's say does not make you feel like a privileged guest of a fancy hotel, but rather like a guest in all-inclusive cheap resort (IMHO). Check-in is busy, but we were lucky - no que, room was not ready but we got coupons for drinks and appetizers for 4 - ~$150 value which we were happy to use to wait couple hours. What also contributed to our experience is that hotel acknowledged our status and sent some free welcome booze and the messages were personalized. Hyatt does this very well. Only need to improve the lounge and rethink how to clean the rooms - then it would be a A+ resort ;)
