HOTEL OVERVIEWSt. Regis Princeville marks the legendary brand’s first resort in Hawai’i and introduces an unparalleled level of sophistication and serene luxury to one of the most remarkable destinations in the world. The St. Regis Princeville Resort located on the exclusive North Shore of Kaua’i is the focal point of Princeville at Hanalei. A luxurious haven, overlooking Hanalei Bay explore the quaint communities of Kilauea and Hanalei, ride horseback along the majestic Na Molokama mountain range or kayak the idyllic Hanalei River. Resort guests enjoy a wide range of ocean sports and eco-adventures from surf lessons, snorkeling to hiking the dramatic Napali.
Having emerged from the sea millions of years before its neighboring islands, Kaua’i is home to the softest sands, grandest rivers and most verdant rain forests in all of Hawai’i. Archaeological evidence suggests that Kaua’i was the first island populated by seafaring Polynesians about 400 A.D. Historically, the name Kaua’i has been translated to mean “season of abundance” or “time of plenty”. The St. Regis Princeville Resort resides on the northern shore of the “Garden Island”. Located in the 9,000 acre resort community of Princeville at Hanalei, this ocean side enclave provides residents and visitors all the amenities you would expect from an island destination considered by many to be one of the most spectacular in Hawai’i.
The Lihue Airport is approximately 32 miles south of Princeville and served by inter-island and major airline carriers. Guests of the St. Regis Princeville Resort reside in a bastion of tropical sophistication, surrounded by interiors reflecting Kaua’i’s rich abundance, cuisine that celebrates local flavors and an array of activities as thrillingly diverse as the island itself. Princeville Ranch Adventures offers exclusive ziplining, kayaking and hiking tours on 2,500 acres of private lands on the North Shore of Kaua’i. These guided tours take you away from crowds to pristine areas that are otherwise inaccessible to the public. Limahuli Garden and Preserve is set in a verdant tropical valley approximately 20 minutes from the resort. The Garden’s exquisite backdrop is the majestic Makana Mountain and Pacific Ocean. Behind the Garden is the Limahuli Preserve where conservationists and restoration biologists are working to preserve species native to this habitat.
