The Hanalei Colony Experience Begins Before You Arrive

Hanalei Colony is a place unlike any other. Situated in an area of pristine natural beauty on Kauai’s lush north shore, it is the only commercial property existing in this spectacular, fragile environment. The Hanalei Colony experience is not so much about buildings and amenities but about this rare and beautiful setting. The experience begins before you arrive.

Your drive to Hanalei Colony will take you past the Princeville Resort community, and this is where the magnificent journey truly begins. The Hanalei Valley lookout reveals a serene panorama: the Hanalei River, National Wildlife Refuge, and Kauai’s famed taro fields—a patchwork quilt of green. Next up the road, a stunning view is unveiled of iconic Hanalei Bay encircled by mountains. A glimpse of what’s to come.

You descend to the historic Hanalei Bridge—the first of seven one-lane bridges you will cross on your journey. From there you are transported into another world by a two-lane highway, meandering for the next several miles through an area of extraordinary beauty and rich history. You pass the quaint town of Hanalei, with its hippie/surfer vibe and eclectic mix of old-Hawaii charm and modern-day offerings. The Old Hanalei Schoolhouse, a historic building now home to boutique shops and restaurants. The picturesque green Wai’oli Hui’ia church, dwarfed by a backdrop of massive mountains.

The next four miles are a feast for the senses, bordered by emerald mountains laced with waterfalls and aquamarine seas framed by white sand beaches. Life slows down. Greens become greener; scents become earthier. Shafts of sunlight warm the trees, their colors altered by passing clouds. Then, in a tranquil place called Ha’ena, you will come upon Hanalei Colony.

There is nothing tame or polished about this area. It is raw, just as Mother Nature created it–a masterpiece conceived on a canvas of land, sea, and sky. The sunrise shimmering on the ocean; the hypnotic power of surging ocean waves; gentle sea mists; wind rustling the coconut fronds. Often, guests say they are illuminated, recharged, and transformed by their experience at Hanalei Colony. Strolling the beach with no destination in mind, sipping morning coffee to the sound of the surf, watching the moon and stars emerge over Hanalei Bay…these are powerful moments. For some people, life-changing. For most, magical. Hanalei Colony is just 10 minutes away from one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world.

THIS is the Hanalei Colony experience.



 
 

Get Around Kaua’i:

The island of Kaua’i launched a new website to offer visitors “more sustainable transportation choices,” after a significant increase of visitors led to a shortage of rental cars.

In addition to cars, the site, GetAroundKauai.com, includes airport shuttles, public buses, rideshare services, and even motorbike rentals in an effort to encourage “low-impact green rides to improve the visitor experience, reduce island traffic, increase small business opportunities, and meet climate action goals.”

Resort Transportation:

Hanalei Colony Resort offers its guests an exclusive complimentary shuttle. Once here, guests can conveniently explore an array of shopping, dining and activities in Hanalei as well as area beaches. Our concierge can help arrange transportation and activities that will most enhance your trip.

Our resort is also just minutes from a handful of spectacular natural adventures at the end of the road: Hāʻena State ParkHanakāpīʻai Beach & WaterfallsNāpali Coast State Wilderness Park & Kalalau Trail, Kēʻē Beach and Mākua Beach (aka Tunnels Beach). The North Shore Shuttle provides daily access to these significant sites for visitors with reservations.
