About the property

Hanalei Bay Resort Ocean Front! Killer Unobstructed Ocean & Mountain Views 8231

Hanalei Bay Resort is a 5 Star Resort and is widely regarded as one of the nicest places to stay on Kauai. 8231 is ideally situated in the Plumeria building on the 'point' of this 22 acre Resort giving you spectacular views! This Hotel Room has some of the best views in all of Kauai. Unobstructed views of Hanalei Bay and a panoramic view of 4000 ft. mountains laced with waterfalls are yours when you look out or step out onto the private lanai. One of the rare unobstructed views left on Kauai. From the lanai you overlook a protected bird sanctuary while watching and listening to the white water surf of Hanalei Bay. I have been renting this unit for years on VRBO from my webpage for the adjoining unit, #8232. 8231 is so nice I decided it deserved it's own webpage!

This unit has a King Size Tropical Canopy Bed with a full Master Bath and private Lanai that sleeps 2, but I have 2 inflatable mattresses which could accommodate 2 more people.

Furnished in authentic Pacific-style with Hawaiiana and Polynesian antiques from around the world - including China, Thailand, the Phillippines, Bali, and Burma - this beautiful condo has an amazing collection of old Hawaii touches. Completely renovated by a well known designer from New York, you will find elegant white tiled floors throughout. The bedroom has a romantic king sized canopy bed. The condo has a kitchenette with a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker and a small rotisserie oven. There is also an outdoor kitchen with gas grills directly adjacent to our building at the lower pool. The unit has a new flat screen TV with DVD, and the entire unit has wireless internet access. Laundry facilities are about a 1 minute walk from the condo.

Why Steve Nahas chose North Shore

My wife and I spent our honeymoon here in 2003 and fell in love with the area. In 2005 we bought our own piece of paradise!

What makes this condo unique

This is a top floor unit, which gives you the advantages of vaulted ceilings which create a much larger feeling space. This provides the benefit of not having people walking around above you, as well as the added security of being off the ground. However, this is one of the few buildings at HBR that is only 2 stories; most of them are 3 stories and you have to walk up and down 2 flights of stairs every time you enter or leave the condo. Due to the grade of the ground around my building you only have to climb 6 steps to enter the unit. In this respect it offers the best of both worlds.

We loved Hanalie Bay Resort and would recommend this property!

  • 4 of 5

We loved Hanalie Bay resort, and the unit was beautiful with a view that we will always remember.

The Kitchenette had everything we needed for storing and making quick meals,and ample storage for extra food stuffs.

The bed was comfy. We really enjoyed the pool created to look like a tropical lagoon, and the swim up bar. The beach is uncrowded with great snorkeling! The lookout point where we can sit and watch unrivaled sun setts was amazing and only a short walk from the front door. Over all we loved this place 😁

No Air Conditioning Made for a Long Week

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights for our honeymoon. When we arrived it didn't take long to find out the air conditioning was broken. Management had put in a temporary window air conditioner that not only didn't cool the room after running all day, it also blew a breaker so we had to keep it off all week. It was pretty disappointing not getting a heads up from management about this issue and not even hear from the manager during our stay after I emailed them with our concerns. It was in the mid 80s all week and the room was incredibly hot for our stay. Even with the windows open and the fan on, there was no air flow in the room.

The 3 star review is because Hanalei Bay Resort is beautiful. The grounds are gorgeous, it has a great pool area, activity hut and a very helpful concierge. We would definitely stay at this resort again, however would stay at a different condo.

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had never been to Kauai, this was a great place to start! The view from the balcony was amazing, it didn't even seem real. This unit is near the smaller pool, which was nice so we could be early out there. The larger pool is beautiful with little water falls and a hot tub. We were thankful the unit had air conditioning. We didn't spend much time here as there were lots of things we wanted to see. For the money, we would stay here again! We walked down to the beach and watched the sunset, enjoyed all of the birds and beautiful plants at the resort. Glad we got to stay here!

Very comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

The view is killer, the bed is comfy and the pool and hot tub were amazing. The location was convenient to Hanalei, and we found this to be a very comfortable suite for 2 ppl over 5 nights. We spent most of our time out and about, however when at the resort, we did enjoy ourselves and used the outdoor kitchen close to the suite. Be aware, there is a $20 per night 'resort fee'. I suggest utilizing the golf cart service and pool towel exchange to soften the blow, the parking is also secure so if you bring a surfboard home, you can leave it on the car. Overall, I can absolutely recommend this accommodation at Hanalei Bay Resort.

Outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just got back from 5 nights in the condo and had a wonderful time. The location is perfect and the view from the balcony of hanalei bay just cant be beat. The pool is nice and there's a very cool bar that has nightly live music. The resort offers complementary rides in golf carts around the property as well as down to the st regis beach with is gorgeous.

This room has a lovely view, but we felt that the room itself needs some updating.

  • 3 of 5

We loved the Hanalei Bay Resort, but felt that our unit needs updating. My husband also felt it could use a deep cleaning especially the tile floor. The grounds of the resort are beautiful and we didn't mind the walk to and from the beach and pool which could be an issue if you have any mobility concerns. We would stay again at this resort, but would definitely choose a different unit that would be a little larger and updated.
