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.

Just the best

We have been around to various vacation resorts. This one so far is the best. Mind you this is Hawaii so prices are a bit much. But so what. You just might not even want to leave the resort because it is so good. In the grand play pool area there is an adult pool, a lazy river pool, kids pools salt water pools etc. just when you think they thought of everything there is a lap pool in the spa. That’s where I spent some time this evening. The spa has every amenity I,ve seen so far at any resort. The Hyatt is adjacent to the ocean. It has a fairly and Long Beach for Hawaii. That said the water is best for surfing. If you want to go swimming with the kids and not lose them to the undertow go to the Jersey Shore. Restaurants are good , the breakfast spread is amazing. Even a laundry room no fee This is an American Express hotel. Best value with the Amex card Oh yes, any hotel is just a building without the people. But here every one of them was helpful and lives up to Hyatt ideals If it is going to be Kauai make it the Hyatt Any omissions in the review is due to submitting it with my iPad

Beautiful bay, great food, cute entertainment

Lovely hotel, gorgeous pool and very pretty bay. Super close to the airport - couldn’t be easier! We stayed here toward the end of our first ever trip to Hawaii. The hotel was lovely, the staff super friendly and the food was delicious. It’s a four star property but has become a high bar that I hold other hotels up to. We even got to watch Jurassic Park on the outdoor cinema screen they put up on the beach - wowzers! Look forward to staying again in the future!

We had an amazing stay at he Grand Hyatt. When we arrived we were early (2pm for a 4pm check in). Coreen at the front desk gave us free lunch and drink passes for the Captains bar in the adult pool area. Once our room was ready they were able to move us from a Garden view on the ground to an ocean view on the 6th floor. The service at all of the restaurants and pool area was great. The next time we go to Kauai we will definitely book a room at this resort.

Looking for a special occasion getaway? This is your Resort! Wonderful pools, spa, and restaurants. Hotel staff treat you right, and they are very helpful. Location is wonderful, and the beach is fantastic. Family, or romantic getaway, the place is Majestic.

While we enjoyed our honeymoon at the Grand Hyatt overall, there were a few things that stood out to us that left a bad impression: check in experience - not great. room cleanliness - we found multiple cockroaches in our room and were told the room would be "sprayed", with no offer to move us to a different room, some areas of the hotel (i.e. lagoon) were closed due to corporate events that we were not told about prior to our arrival. The service was great (especially the on-site restaurants and room service), but for the price we paid, I feel like the overall experience could have been way better and was lacking.
