Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa 

Boasting one of Hawaii’s best waterfront settings

Relax resort-style into island life amidst sprawling manicured gardens, mesmerising sunsets and the sound of resident macaws.

Sitting on the southern shores of Kauai, feel at ease and enjoy some well-deserved relaxation at the Grand Hyatt. Watch surfers catch some breaks on famous Shipwreck Beach that neighbours the resort, or jump in the car and visit the charming town of Koloa less than ten-minutes away. Plantation-style shutters frame manicured gardens and ocean views that are sure to leave you feeling peaceful as the sun sets.
