Just needed a quiet getaway from the busyness of life and this place was everything we needed. Our view from the lanai was breathtaking and falling asleep to the sound of the waves was heavenly. The accommodations were clean and well appointed with no TV (did not miss it). We would recommend this place for a peaceful retreat.

About the only place to stay between Hanalei and the end of the road, this place is a small set of two story condos, with four on each floor, built around fifty years ago, remodeled at varying times since. It's the only north shore resort that is on the beach. Some of these are timeshares, or partly owned. The small...

Uncrowded, quiet, relaxing. Helpful staff and beautiful views. A great location away from the tourist chaos but close enough to everything you might need. Convenient to local beaches and attractions including Hanalei town. We will be back

Excellent! Exceeded my expectations! Ideal for those who, like me, desperately need to detox from the busy lifestyle. Units are spotless,have no TV which was an absolute plus for me. Reliable wifi free.

My recent stay at the Hanalei Colony Resort exceeded all expectations (they were high!) and became my own personal blissful sanctuary for a week. I needed a week away from work to unwind and the tranquil ocean breezes coupled with sound of the surf lulled me into a deep sleep each night. I slept better than I ever have at...

What a wonderful little place this is. It's not all glitz and glam, it's clean and comfortable. The peaceful and very large rooms make you feel more at home being tastefully decorated. The staff are just wonderfully helpful, there when needed and allow you to just enjoy the pleasures of the Hanalei Bay area. Location helps of course, waking up...

My wife and I wanted to get away. That's exactly what we found here. And surprisingly nice. We flew a long ways to get to Kauai, rented a car and went to the end of the road to a magical enclave of beaches and rainforests and spectacular mountains. Nice local people. Great little town nearby. Hanalei Colony Resort feels like...

We recently stayed there for 5 nights and had an amazing time. You first take a nice drive to an amazing work of nature with trees, mountains, waterfalls, and beaches (don't forget those wildlife encounters like horses, nene birds, and of course all the chickens). Be careful when you are driving those narrow road. But, when you enter that part...

For me the best possibility to stay at the paradise-like area in the north of Kauai. The hotel is quite good, big rooms, some with nice views to the sea. Best is just the location and the beach, where you can go for sunset
