Upscale elegance on the sunny south coast of Kauai: Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa



Click here for a slideshow of the Grand Hyatt Kauai

During my latest visit to the Hawaiian islands  I was very fortunate to stay at the Grand Hyatt on Kauai.  Our luxurious room faced  the  ocean,  gardens and waterfalls so we had the best of the tropical islands in view at all times.  Can’t get much better than that!!

The Grand Hyatt Kauai fronts the Keoneloa Bay in sunny Poipu, on the south coast of Kauai.  Poipu is about 20-30 minutes from the airport in Lihue, which is the main airport on the island.   While there are many resorts, condominiums and boutique hotels in Poipu, the Grand Hyatt beckons you as the “place to be”.  As soon as you turn onto the beautiful, long, palm-tree lined drive, you feel that something special is waiting!  You will not be disappointed.  A hotel valet will greet you with a beautiful flower lei, and escort you to the lobby, where the friendly front desk staff awaits your arrival.  Check-in is painless, and made even more so by the personal escort to your room!  All of the room’s attributes are explained, as well as the function of various room features.  Talk about personal service!

The Grand Hyatt rooms are newly renovated, and include a marble entry way, rich mahogany furniture and luxurious rain style showers!

As beautiful as the rooms are, the resort itself is absolutely breathtaking.  The landscaping is over the top!  From the beautiful gardens, with rock waterfalls, 2 tier pools that are open 24 hours, a 150 foot water slide and saltwater lagoon, you will feel as though you have arrived in paradise!  Not to mention the beautiful beach, lined with Cabanas, lawn swings, and lounge chairs.

While Grand Hyatt is very luxurious and elegant, it is also offers many fun activities for the whole family.  Camp Hyatt is a fun, active program exclusively for keiki (children) ages 3 to 12.  The camp counselors try to fit the day’s schedule to the group’s interest.  Your children will enjoy making leis and feeding the Koi fish.  The Hawaiian culture is also integrated into the Camp Hyatt program where the kids will learn about the endangered Hawaiian monk seals and Nene (Hawaii’s state bird), and through crafts like palm frond weaving, shell bracelet making, and hula lessons.  The adults can enjoy a day at the Spa or lounge at the beach or by the pool, and know that the kids are having a great vacation, too!

You can keep in shape while vacationing at Grand Hyatt by playing a few games of tennis on one of 3 tennis courts, or play a round of golf at the adjacent Poipu Bay Golf Course.  A variety of yoga, fitness, dance and wellness classes are available at the Fitness Center.  The classes are complimentary for hotel guests.

Of course, trying new foods is part of vacationing in Hawaii, and Grand Hyatt has many restaurant options.  The newest restaurant, the Yum Cha, is an Asian Fusion style restaurant with diverse offerings.  Treat yourself to a plate of Vietnamese Lettuce Wraps, enjoy the Yellow Coconut Curry Soup or explore the extensive variety of teas, Asian beer, and sake.

At Tidepools, an open air restaurant with waterfalls and koi-filled lagoons, offers many traditional Hawaiian dishes.  You can’t miss with the Macadamia Nut encrusted Mahi Mahi or the Grilled Hawaiian Ahi.

No visit to Hawaii would be complete without at least one Luau experience. Grand Hyatt Kauai presents this unforgettable Hawaiian tradition each week.  In additional to the traditional Hawaiian feast of Kalua pork, (roast pork cooked in an underground steam oven) and Lomi Lomi Salmon, you will also be treated to the rich musical culture of Hawaii.  Hula dancers and fire eaters are favorites at every luau!
