Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa
- What's Included
There is nothing bad I can say about GH Kauai... the property, the staff, the room, the view... it was all just amazing. From the arrival where you are greeted with flower Leis, then you walk in and see the stunning view of the ocean.. you are just wow'd. The property is meticulously maintained, the pool and the lagoon is awesome, the hotel is just about perfect. Seaview Terrace is open seating restaurant with spectacular view of the ocean. A Must!Only thing I would complain was that there was no staff around the pool to discourage bunch of families playimg by throwing a water bounce ball clear across the pool to each other. Even adults were doing it. Not just inconsiderate but dangerous with kida around.I have already planned the return trip!
Checking out later today but couldn't wait to leave this review. My family and I stayed here for 2 nights following our stay in a 2BR condo at Waipouli. The condo wasn't available for our full trip dates so we "reluctantly" booked two nights here. We got a beautiful suite with sea view! Great HD tv's, top notch resort with gorgeous pools (adult and kids alike) my kids especially loved the water slide.Although people say the beach isn't swimmable, I saw people riding the waves throughout. My kids loved running by the beach and getting wet from the waves.Especially amazing was the service for guests checking out. You stilll have access all day of the pools and other general areas, and they have a huge lounge with a shower and TV where you can rest and stay until your flight. I was the only one there.Resort is huge, and requires some walking but hey, with such beauty who wouldn't want to walk? Loved the hammock!! Also have the option to get a photo session on the beach - keep that in mind when packing clothes Overall best possible resort!!! Enjoy! Attached pic of lounge for people flying out later in the day
I am not too keen on big resorts, but I Loved this Resort! It's very large, so you don't feel over-crowded. I was staying at a different hotel, stopped by here for breakfast while out exploring the island. I shortened the stay at the other hotel and spent the last 2 nights here. The pools are fantastic! There are areas just for adults, if you don't want to be around the families with children. This is a resort you will always remember!
I loved how you are welcomed with a grand entrance with a breathtaking ocean view, a lei, and fruit flavored infused water. The front entrance/desk staff made us feel welcomed. I wish they offered first night free valet parking as the Sheration does especially since their parking lot is so far from the room. Also, the open lot made for a hot car. We had an ocean view room in the Poipu wing on the 5th floor. Enjoyed the view and sounds of the crashing waves from the room very much. The room was quiet with a private lanai. I did not hear any noisy events (maybe weddings occur in Spring and this was Summer) or crying children except one day as I walked down the hall. I did get tired from the long walk from the room to virtually everywhere in the resort. The beautiful grounds are 5 star. The food and ambiance at Tidepools restaurant was excellent. However, I didn't really taste much alcohol in the mixed drink so I didn't order a second one that night. All the staff I met were courteous. Overall it is a very nice resort and I would return. I took one star off for several reasons. Even though I am a World of Hyatt member they were unable to give me late checkout. They did check me in early, but due to a late flight, I would have preferred late checkout instead. They don't have hospitality rooms for late check out showers. Instead its a lounge with one shared bathroom. The room decor was nice, but nothing special. One lamp had a burned out bulb. I like a mattress that is comfy, but this felt too soft and lumpy and the pillows were too soft with little support. The shower leaked water from under the glass door( was it due to opening door when water was running?) onto the marble floor and you could see where the grout had previously become discolored due to standing water. A fast breakfast at the coffee bar had too many people waiting in line. They could open another such venue maybe near the Poipu Wing. We were tired after excursions some days and after resting found that it was too late to find dining options such as sushi at Stevenson's Library. So at 9:30 or 9:45 they handed us a menu with items such as a hamburger which we were not interested in. If it is a late night bar then offer sushi till closing.
I can't think of anything that would need to be improved. The room was beautiful. the staff was warm and accommodating and its acknowledgement of our honeymoon on multiple occasions made it even more special. The grounds were beautiful but natural looking. Everything was well-manicured and welcoming. The resort had plenty to explore but was easy to get around. The hotel was big but never seemed crowded. Never had a problem getting a chair for the pools. Getting chairs and umbrellas for the beach was easy, too. The scenery at the hotel is really amazing. It can't be described in words or with pictures because you need at least 270 degrees of view to understand how perfect the setting is.The food is a bit pricey but its good and plentiful. We were never hungry and always felt like we got good value for the price. Even the room service (which we ordered immediately upon arrival) was awesome. Get the ahi tuna burger. At the pool get the fish tacos. Tide Pools restaurant was amazing and worth the slightly hefty price. The location of the resort is great. Walking distance to a few other beaches (including poipu) and great restaurants and bars (keokis, kalapaki joes), for those rare times when you want to get off the property. Spa was awesome and tranquil. Treatments my new wife and i got there were beyond exceptional. Really nine days wasn't enough to explore kauai but the hotel was the foundation for what was a perfect honeymoon and im extremely glad we stayed there. Thanks to everyone there from the housekeeping to the chefs to the concierge to the front desk to the maintenance people, on and on. Just a beautiful experience.
