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.

    Amazing Pacific Dreams Photography Experieice

    We had an exceptional photography experience to cap off our family vacation to Kauai! Our Pacific Dreams team did a superb job from start to finish! Our photographer, Jared Vargo, was wonderful! He was creative with settings, quick to catch the best moments in action shots, innovative with portraits and enthusiastic in his work. He made our session relaxing and fun. We love the photos he produced and team member Madeleine was very helpful with our final selection session. We will treasure these images always.

    Amazing resort and trip

    My family and I just returned from the Grand Hyatt in Kauai, and have to say this was one of our best vacations ever. This was our first stay at a Hyatt resort and if the rest of their properties are anything like this we will be going to many more. The resort couldn't be located in a better place. Not only are the views amazing, but the property itself is beautiful and very easy to get around. There is a public beach right next to the hotel that has the clearest water and huge waves. Off the beach is a path that leads you to the top of a cliff that has the most amazing views. The pools and lagoon are also some of the best I have ever seen. In addition there are many shops and restaurants within a couple of miles of the property. When we checked in we were greeted by Makaela (spelling) who was so friendly and helpful both at check in and throughout the week. Both her and all of the staff we came into contact with made our trip stress free. The hotel has several water dispensing stations throughout the hotel, which is a very nice amenity. The resort is very family friendly and was perfect for our 12 and 14 year olds. So much to see and do within a half hour of the hotel. I highly recommend this resort to anyone and everyone. By far our best experience staying in Hawaii. The only negative thing I could say is that people using the public beach sneak up to the pools and lagoon. The resort provides wrist bands to all of their customers, but people still sneak in.

    Beautiful Resort for our Baby Moon

    We are expecting our first child and decided to visit this resort for our Baby Moon. The hotel grounds are beautiful, with lots of paths for you to get lost in nature. It’s tropical Hawai’i, so it’ll be a bit humid, but it’s perfect when you’re there to lounge and take in the pools and beach. We decided to take advantage of Pacific Dream Photography, which is employed by the hotel, to take some professional photos. It’s super convenient because you get a scheduled 45 minute session complimentary, and then get the option to purchase photos the next day after reviewing them. Our photographer, Pru, was kind, easy to talk to, understood what we were trying to achieve, and helped bring all our requests to life. We ended up liking a great deal of photos, and are glad we decided to do the session! Now we have beautiful sentimental photos that will last a lifetime. It’s great the resort offers classes every day, free of additional charge. We took advantage of a couple classes and thought they were a great way to start the day. The rooms are also clean, and the cleaning crew stayed on top of our requests for things like more pillows, towels, etc. The staff was friendly in all parts of the resort, which goes a long way in making your vacation worthwhile. One thing to keep in mind, if you don’t want to be around a lot of children, this may not be the resort for you. The pool and lazy river are perfect for families with children, and even if you spend time at the adult pool, it is open to any person 14 years or older.
