Juicy Tidbits

Conde Nast Traveler says..."With "a dreamy location" on Mai Khao Beach, on Phuket's less frenetic northern coast, this "fantastic hotel" on a former coconut plantation is all gardens and grand entryways. Traditional Thai villas border a free-form lagoon and have wood-beam ceilings, terrazzo tubs, outdoor decks, and private pools. "Staff do everything well—incredibly well." For Thai-accented tapas and Andaman Sea views, climb to the Tree House—accessed via a spiral staircase that wraps around an ancient banyan tree. Sea Fire Salt does a beachside seafood barbecue and has a salt sommelier on hand. Mixologists man the infinity pool bar." ~From cntraveler.com

Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa

Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa

Koloa - Kauai, Hawaii (Kauai)

This hotel says...

Ultimate Hawaiian classic resort architecture and decor of Hawaii's golden age of 1920s and 1930s. The resort includes six restaurants and lounges, a water playground with waterfalls and water slide, a five acre saltwater lagoon, tennis, ANARA spa and golf at Poipu Bay Resort.

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."The Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa isn’t intimate—it holds 602 rooms—but travelers can still find some Zen calm here. The resort is set along 50 acres on the southern coast of Kauai, with lush grounds that meander alongside the ocean and a saltwater lagoon, allowing for leisurely strolls. Rooms near the Anara Spa—one of the best on the islands—are the farthest from the bustle of the large lobby area and its collection of exotic birds. An adults-only pool flows into a lava-rock river pool, which segues into a 150-foot-long waterslide, which drops into the “active” (read: lots of kids) pool. Six restaurants offer something for every palate. ~From Travelandleisure.com

National Geographic Traveler says..."An oceanside marriage of grandeur and conscience. Hawaiiana galore: traditional arts, crafts, music, and luaus. Info in every guest room on the endangered monk seal. Serious recycling since 1995. 18,500 square feet (1,718 square meters) of solar panels to be installed this year." -From National Geographic Traveler

Conde Nast Traveler says..."On a former sugarcane plantation, this low-rise is classic Hawaiian with its open-air design "filled with happiness, peace, and joy." Room renovations, begun in April 2010, have added stone tile entryways, island petroglyph artwork, and recycled yarn carpeting. "Activities for every taste" include horseback riding, snorkeling, and hiking. Dondero's serves Italian cuisine, while Yum Cha dishes up pan-Asian. "The service is very attentive." -From Conde Nast Traveler

Conde Nast Traveler says..."In “a beautiful location” fronting a beach and surrounded by gardens and lagoons, this low-rise Keoneloa Bay resort has an open-air design reminiscent of Hawaii in the 1920s and ’30s. “It’s heaven on earth.” Rooms with terraces are furnished in mahogany with traditional Hawaiian-print linens. Rooms have white-marble-tiled entryways and rain showers. Dine on pan-Asian at Yum Cha or surf and turf at Tidepools, which was built to resemble huts floating in a lagoon. Anara Spa offers treatments in open-air bungalows. “Staff make you feel so welcome.” Pools connected to waterfalls, courtyards, and gardens dot the 50 acres." ~From CondeNastTraveler.com
