Situated on Hawaii’s breathtaking Hanalei Bay, this exclusive island getaway appeals to luxury travelers, golf enthusiasts and honeymooners seeking tropical romance and fun. Elegantly-appointed, it offers spacious guestrooms and suites, world-class golf, horse back riding along wind swept cliffs and uncompromising service. A dazzling blend of authentic Hawaiian hospitality and modern amenities, this luxury resort offers distinctive service amidst unforgettable refinement.
Built in plantation style, the hotel appears modest from the driveway: low-rise, creamy stucco with a green-tile roof. The vast lobby creates a different impression: marble, gently falling water, tapestries, antiqued chairs, sofas so deep they seem to swallow guests. A terrace off the lobby showcases ocean views, as breaking rollers sweep into beautiful Hanalei Bay past the rock spire called Bali Hai.
The beautiful beach provides calm water for swimming and snorkeling except under the most dramatic offshore surf conditions. A huge pool with an ocean view and a swim-up bar are surrounded by a spacious sundeck and a garden of small palm trees. One level up from the pool are a toddlers' pool and three enormous half-moon-shaped spas.
Complimentary shuttles move guests around the vast Princeville resort community, including to the Prince Course clubhouse, where the health/beauty/fitness spa is located, and to the tennis center. Off the lobby are concierge rooms for both Japanese and Western guests, where helicopter sightseeing trips along the renowned Napali Coast can be arranged, along with other activities. The poolside beach-activity center rents snorkel sets, kayaks, and boogie boards and arranges outrigger canoe tours, scuba lessons, and dives. Supervised children's activities include child care for toddlers by the wading pool; snorkeling, scuba, and boogie-boarding for ages 5–12; and surfing lessons and horseback riding for ages 12–16.
