Grand Hyatt, KauaiBack to previous
Holiday in Kauai
The oldest of Hawaii's main islands, also known as the 'Garden Isle' has been shaped for millions of years by erosion but has created stunning scenery with miles of sandy beaches. Whilst most of the island can be seen by road, the Nā Pali Coast remains gloriously untouched. This idyllic USA island has also provided the backdrop for films including Jurassic Park and Raiders of the Lost Arc.
The best way to see the island is hiking along the 11-mile Kalalau hiking trail to appreciate the Nā Pali Coastline whilst also gaining stunning views of the islands five valleys and Ke'e and Kalalau beaches. Views are equally impressive by land, air and sea to also spot dolphins and whales.
The 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific', Waimea Canyon, was created by a large earthquake that almost split the island into two and is still being eroded by the Waimea River. The canyon is magnificent at approximately 10 miles long, 1 mile wide and over 3,000ft deep and to appreciate this fully head to Waimea Canyon Overlook. Most of the white sandy beaches remain relatively uncrowded, perfect for surfers or mountain tube down Lihue's water flumes and the zip-lines above the rainforest. Championship golf courses provide a relaxed afternoon as does a Lomi Lomi massage in a spa.Book now

Welcomed with a lei the wow-factor begins in the chandelier topped lobby. The pools are lined with towering palm trees, the mint-scented Anara spa with lava rock rain-showers is perfectly indulgent. Unique Kauai wood-carved pineapple sculptures add character and the resort grows its own salad. The amenities are world-class with a multi-room gym, lazy 24-hour river pool and scheduled children's activities to keep them busy.
The rooms provide just the respite you need from the resort's activities that are spacious, offer a sitting area, coffee maker, private lanai and suite upgrades are available for spa tubs, marble bathrooms and wet bars.
Stevenson's Library, a converted cigar lounge with stunning ocean views, is the spot for pre and post-dinner drinks.
