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.

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.

This condo is a top floor unit, which gives you better views, improved security, vaulted ceilings for a much larger feel, and you don't have the noise of people above you. However, this is one of the few 2 story buildings on the property; most are 3 stories, so you don't have to climb 2 sets of stairs every time you enter or leave. There are only 6 steps to reach the front door.

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 Princeville

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.

spectacular view, romantic, great location

  • 5 of 5

The view from this condo of Hanalei Bay and "Bali Hai" is truly spectacular. Hanalei Bay Resort is beautifully landscaped with many nice amenities. The very upscale St. Regis is immediately adjacent with wonderful restaurants for an intimate dinner. (The food at the restaurant at Hana Lei left something to be desired, but we enjoyed the live music and sunset view there every night.) We found the whole setting very romantic. As a matter of fact, we got engaged there. My fiancee is 70 and I'm 69. We were high school and college sweethearts, but hadn't seen each other in 45 years. We've spent the last 2 years together, but this place sealed the deal and he proposed!

The view from the room is absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The room had everything we needed as far as amenities go, and the bed was very comfortable. Hanalei Bay Resort is wonderful. The pool is beautiful. Staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant with good food on the resort and a swim up bar. If we ever come back to Kauai, We would choose to stay in this place again!

Excellent trip in Kauai

My husband and I just spent the last 6 days of our honeymoon at the Hanalei Bay resort and loved it. The view from our lanai was wonderful and the resort amenities were excellent! We would highly recommend this rental unit.

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.

Owner's Response: I sincerely apologize for the lack of Air Conditioning. Unfortunately these things can happen without warning. During the hot season it was extremely difficult to get it replaced; every contractor we called was booked for weeks. It took a near act of Congress, but we did manage to get the whole system replaced and it works fine now. I'm glad you otherwise enjoyed the property. Mahalo
