Kauai is known for its dramatic natural beauty and the Princeville Resort has bagged a prime position overlooking Hanalei Bay towards Mount Namolokama. Its infinity pool, sheltered beach, spa and golf courses ensure a relaxing stay.

From the soaring cliffs of the Napali Coast to the vast chasms of Waimea Canyon and over 80 kilometers of sandy beaches, Kauai is the quintessential island paradise. Located on a cliff overlooking the calm waters of Hanalei Bay on the lush north shore of the island, the Princeville Resort is the island's top resort.

The hotel has been designed to maximize the incredible views, with the 252 rooms and suites cascading down the cliff, leading down to the lagoon-style infinity pool and golden beach beyond.

Kaua'i is abundant in natural wonders and no stay would be complete without some island exploration: take to the skies and enjoy the epic scenery by helicopter, for hikers, the Waimea Canyon, often called 'The Grand Canyon of the Pacific' is a must, and the 15 miles of majestic Napali coast is best enjoyed from the water, whether by kayak or catamaran.
