The St. Regis Princeville Resort
Set on 9,000 acres of lush landscaping along the shores of Kauai's Hanalei Bay, none of the rooms at the St. Regis are far from the water. The resort's 251 rooms and suites have views of the gardens, mountains, and bay, and the sleek, comfortable accommodations are outfitted in ivory and taupe with splashes of color. The 300-thread-count linens make naps a priority, but the infinity pool is hard to resist, as is the afternoon tea ritual served poolside. Dine in one of four restaurants, and visit Halele'a Spa for treatments infused with local flowers and fruit. The on-site Young Voyagers Program for 5- to 12-year-olds offers daytime activities.
