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.

    Exceptional

    One of the most spectacular places I have ever stayed. Truly exceptional. Resort was amazing. On site restaurants were very good. Pools and lagoon were fabulous. Nightly entertainment overlooking the ocean was a bonus.

    Kauai - experience

    Lovely hotel/resort. Staff were great and helpful when we requested information. Like the free bikes although we didn't use them - it's a great idea. Kauai is beautiful. While the hotel is expensive it's not a bad price for Kauai in January as well as the amenities.

    What’s not to love?

    Great hotel. Excellent restaurants and a pool and grounds to die for. All of the staff were incredibly nice and helpful. Lots of stores for everything you might need. Excellent workout area. We were here and we had high winds and rain and it was still wonderful

    Wonderful Resort on Kauai

    We spent 5 nights on this beautiful ocean front resort. When we arrived we were treated like celebrities. We received stunning flower leis and a bottle of champagne to celebrate my husband’s retirement. We got maps of the resort, extensions to call if we needed anything...it was the perfect reception. The resort is beautiful with lots of pools (including an adult only area) hot tubs, various bars and restaurants as well as onsite shopping. Staff was wonderful too. Lots golf and great restaurants nearby. Recommend this resort highly!

    Great family vacation spot!

    We recently finished a visit at the Grand Hyatt In Kauai. It was a magnificent property! Upon arrival we were met by a helpful valet and bellman staff. Check in went well. We received a free upgrade and they were able to check us in early. Parking : they offer both valet and self parking. Very nice option. Most hotels don’t give up a choice. Valet : $30. Self Parking : free. I would go with free parking. Room: great view. Club level with an ocean view. Only negative was the in room fridge. Needed to be cleaned desperately. (Our key stopped working on the last day. Right in the middle of my three year olds temper tantrum. We were locked out and frustrated. Engineering drilled the lock and open the door, rather than making us wait while the figures out what the problem was. The front desk extended our check out time.) Be careful to determine where your room will be. Our room was a very long walk. Restaurants: Donero’s : food was good. Service was good. 3 stars Tide Pools : food was outstanding. Service was excellent. Ask to sit near water and check out the fish. The kids loved them. Feeding takes place daily in the am. 4 stars Stevenson’s : sushi was good. Service was great. Kids menu was limited. 3.75 stars Ilima Terrace : food was fine. Service was poor. 2.7 stars. (I would give it another try though.) Pool side food : great service. Did not have to wait long. Room service : several of the reviews I read gave poor reviews. I don’t agree. Food was good and delivered quickly. Pools: lagoon - excellent property for little kids. The ocean setting offered a zero depth setting for our 3 and 5 year old. Nothing like it on any of the islands. Allowed us to relax and still spend time with our kids. Family pool - lazy river and water slide were very nice. Great distraction for the kids. Pool was a little cold..... Gym: was great. Full line of equipment. Shops : plenty of variety.
