Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa
- What's Included
Flew in from Melbourne, Australia so there was an early arrival in Honolulu and in turn a connecting flight to Kauai. A luxury Cadillac town car arrival to the grand hyatt and noticed that no one seemed to be around to help with bags. I was able to be checked in right away, to the pre arranged king deluxe ocean view, this was much appreciated. 3 nights at this place was just enough with a full day spent around the pool. Visually beautiful, with a relaxed ambience, really do deliver the luxury tropical atmosphere. I personally found the 24/7 pool use great, particularly after 6pm, as the crowds have all disappeared and the lagoon, plus lazy river are empty. Australia has better beaches, so I didn't even bother going out to look beyond the Seaview terrace. My room was fine and spacious, other than buying coffees in the morning and cocktails at night, I opted against the use of exclusively eating at the Grand Hyatt. I can't comment on the staff as I never had contact, other than check in and check out. The place is a maze, but I didn't find it a bother and did enjoy the isolation way, way, Way out past the Grand club dining, out on the tip of the Poipu wing. I found the service of Avis car hiring in the lobby, very handy.This is a good place to come and relax, it's most comfortable and very pretty. It is worth the effort for a stay, but for the stimulus of always trying something different I would try the best that the islands north has to offer next time! It's a solid 8.5 out of ten, from me.
Arrived on Kauai on 7/16 at about 11ish... After getting car, and driving to hotel, I was assuming we would just drop off luggage and eat but when we arrived at about 2pm, room was ready for us. The guy at front desk that checked us in was so nice and friendly. I always knew Kauai locals has lots of Aloha! :) Their lobby where you can see the ocean is a great spot to take a picture and it looks like you are in a frame love it! Our room was pool view category but we were on 6th floor (highest floor here) and had a great view of the pool and just a little look on the right side, we had a great view of the ocean. Not a full view of it but was good enough to enjoy it every morning. The Seaview Terrace had plenty of chairs to enjoy the great view of the ocean. I spend time here in the morning while drinking my coffee and having a small breakfast from the cafe.We also tried the breakfast buffet and food was great. We really enjoyed their lagoon. We went swimming here almost every day instead of the pool. Their pool is great too and big, never crowded and I was surprised because it's in the middle of July and you will not have a hard time finding chairs and pool not crowded. But my kids enjoyed the lagoon more so spent a lot of time there. Plenty of chairs by the lagoon too. Food service at the lagoon was good. The restaurant by the pool closes at 5pm daily so we tried to order our food or drinks before it closes. The hotel also gives you 2 water bottles each room (found in room) and you can refill these bottles by the lobby. They have water machine and we really liked that since Hawaii is hot, we can use cold water daily and don't have to worry about buying bottled water to bring in the room. We did buy water though and drinks since the room had a mini refrigerator. Hotel is at a great location. Close to restaurants and shopping plazas. It's about a 3-5 minute drive to Kukui'ula Village Shopping Center where you can find Bubba's Burgers and other restaurants and small stores. Also close to another shopping plaza where Keoki's is. Close to Poipu Beach, Brenecke's and other beaches along that side of Poipu/Koloa. We really enjoyed our stay at Grand Hyatt. Property is great, well maintained.Staff from front desk, bell desk and valet are all nice. We would definitely stay here again when in Kauai again.
Really very excellent experience as food, overall service and ambience top notch. Breakfast buffets excellent but a bit of a wait required as with most times when wanting to meet with concierge. Staff very good and went out of their way to be helpful.
The outdoor amenities were excellent! Enjoyed the pool and salt water pool areas. Location was perfect for our family! The outdoor areas definitely outweighed the guest room in regards to quality and design. The room was dated and appeared unclean. We were told a guest room renovation is scheduled for Spring 2018.
Grand Hyatt is one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed in, and I travel frequently for work and pleasure. The gardens, pools, beach and architecture of the hotel and lobby are stunning. We also liked the location on the sunny and dry south side of the island.
