1 Hotel Hanalei Bay : A Look Inside The Revamped Tropical Oasis In Hawaii

Situated on a hilltop that command breathtaking views of Hanalei Bay on Kauai’s captivating North Shore in Hawaii, 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay occupies a truly magnificent location. After undergoing a lavish $300 million transformation, the exquisite resort formerly recognized as St. Regis Princeville has emerged with a new identity as 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay.

1 Hotel Hanalei Bay has transformed into a verdant retreat that seamlessly merges with the lush surroundings, with an abundance of plants, camouflaging itself within the vibrant Hawaiian landscape. The construction was an act of reimagination and respect. Existing atop a protected natural wonder, full effort has been made to preserve and strengthen as much of the existing area as possible. Roughly 70% of all plants you see throughout the resort are endemic, indigenous, or Polynesian canoe crops-brought to the island over 1,000 years ago and used to nourish and sustain the first settlers. Now, they work to purify the air, uplift your spirits, provide cultural significance, and blur the lines between interior and exterior.
