Kauai provides a beautiful backdrop for sunsets and sunrises with the clear water of the ocean and the glistening sands of the beaches. For a stay to remember, book a room at one of Kauai’s luxury hotels. With gorgeous views and few steps to the water, luxury hotels on Kauai embrace the island hospitality and the leisure that makes it one of the best places to visit.

For a great spot on Kalapaki Beach, reserve a room at Kauai Marriott Resort. This luxury hotel makes staying on site easy and fun. The hotel contains the island’s largest family friendly pool. The trip from the pool to the ocean requires a short step over the walkway separating the area from the sandy area and tame waters of Kalapaki Beach. Private cabanas provide shade and beach volleyball provides an athletic adventure. The resort also caters to picky eaters, offering five restaurants that serve a variety of seafood, sushi, Italian and other items. For a real island theme, stop by Duke’s Kauai in honor of Duke Kahanamoku, surfing’s pioneer. The restaurant and Barefoot Bar serves Hawaiian influenced dishes and drinks and a stunning view of Kalapaki Beach. For a bit of pampering, stop by Alexander Spa and Salon and for a great game schedule some time at Kauai Lagoons Golf Club, which is a Jack Nicklaus championship golf course.

The Sheraton Kauai Resort, a 20-acre resort on Poipu Beach in Koloa, was designed so that every room has either an ocean view or a garden view featuring tropical botanicals and waterfalls. One freshwater pool sits beachfront, while another sits in the garden surrounded by waterfalls. The resort highlights a main dining room and an incredible outdoor bar and grill with the best view in the house.

The St. Regis Princeville Resort offers a level of sophistication that is only offered in the very best of areas, and the quaint town of Princeville on the North Shore is certainly one of these areas. The resort offers their signature St. Regis butler service, Halelea Spa and Kauai Grill. For a beauty parallel to that of the sea below, the St. Regis highlights an infinity pool situated on the ocean, overlooking Hanalei Bay, and surrounded by tropical botanicals and island inspired water features. Golfers can select from two golf courses, including the Makai Golf Course, sitting high above the North Shore, or the Prince Golf Course, which contains climbing slopes and dropping hills.
