Kauai, Hawaii The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas
QuickTime VR of Hanalei
Bay can be seen here.
If this is the Hawaii you are
looking for, you can stay at the The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas, Hanalei
Colony Resort, or the Cliffs at Princeville Condos.
The photo above was taken at
Ke'e Beach -- the very last beach at the end of the road,
where the Na Pali coast begins. You can hike a trail down
this rugged coastline, and there are whale-watching zodiac boats
available in Hanalei.
Princeville is a resort area and golfing paradise
just adjacent to Hanalei. Here's what a sunset over Bali Hai
(made famous in the movie South Pacific) looks like from Princeville.
Be aware, though, the north
shore is lush with vegetation because it is the rainy side of
the island. So, you might find some clouds in paradise on occasion.
If you prefer to stay where
it's mostly sunny (on the south shore), you might want
to consider the areas around Lihue and Poipu. In
Poipu, you can stay at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa, Makahuena
at Poipu, Sheraton Kauai Resort, or the Castle Poipu Shores. Here's an interactive hotel map of Poipu.
In the Lihue area, choose
from the Kauai Marriott Resort, Castle
Kaha Lani, and the Kauai Beach Resort, among others. Here's a Lihue map.
There are also great places to stay north
of Lihue, in Wailua Bay and Kapaa, notably the Courtyard by Marriott Kauai, Aston
Islander on the Beach, and the Outrigger Lae
Nani. Here's a map of the Kapaa area.
The Poipu and Lihue resorts
are closer to Waimea Canyon, also known as the "Grand
Canyon of the Pacific".
If you drive up to the canyon, make sure you go all the way to the end of the road because the view from the Kalalau Lookout is too spectacular to miss.
