The Princeville Resort – located on the stunning Hawaiian island of Kuai – allows you to relax and unwind in the lap of luxury with its golf courses, soothing spa, gourmet dining and direct beach access.
The hotel has a total of 251 rooms including 51 suites with the premium suites featuring their own dedicated butler. With tall windows letting in plenty of light and spacious terraces included in many of the accommodations, there is ample opportunity to soak up the sweeping views over the lush gardens, soaring mountains or sparkling Hanalei Bay. The interiors are elegantly decorated with works by Hawaiian artists and come with decent-sized bathrooms that guarantee a comfortable stay.
During your stay, enjoy refreshing dips in the pool, soak up the sun on the loungers and indulge in a relaxing treatment at the spa. Sip sundowners at the beach bar and take your pick from the resort's selection of restaurants including the magnificent Makana Terrace for casual breakfasts and sunset dining complete with jaw-dropping sea views.
Away from Princeville, there are a huge number of activities on offer including spectacular hiking, paddle boarding, kayaking and zip lining as well as boat and helicopter tours. Kauai is where the film Jurassic Park was filmed and the surrounding landscape is exactly what you would expect - floury beaches, swaying palm trees and gorgeous green hills rising up from the sea.
All Hawaiian beaches are public, but the beach at The Princeville Resort is virtually inaccessible from anywhere else, so is pretty much private in all but name.
