St. Regis Princeville, Hanalei, Kauai
The large, half-moon-shaped Hanalei Bay is the jewel of Kauai’s north shore. There are multiple surf breaks in the Bay, including a fast-moving right-hand point break near Princeville and a rolling beginner-friendly wave near Hanalei’s picturesque pier. Hanalei Bay’s best season is winter, when its northern exposure picks up swell rolling down from the North Pacific.
Where You'll Stay: The St. Regis Princeville is a full-service resort with five dining rooms, spa, fitness room, pool, and golf course. Comfortably furnished guest rooms overlook Hanalei Bay, and the hotel is just steps from one of the best breaks in the Bay. The St. Regis offers boards for rent from the resort’s pool deck. If you’re looking for lessons, Hawaiian School of Surfing or Hawaiian Surfing Adventures has you covered. A spa is ready to remove the postsurf kinks.
Rates and Getting There: Rates vary by season and start at $480/night. The hotel can arrange for private car service for pick-ups from the Lihue Airport for an additional charge. [stregisprinceville.com]
