Hanalei Colony Resort ❋ Vacation on the Beach
The Hanalei Colony Resort is truly unique among Kauai vacation rentals. Located less than five miles past the charming town of Hanalei on Kauai’s lush north shore, it’s convenient to shopping and dining, yet remains peaceful and unspoiled. Visitors savor a picturesque drive across seven one-lane bridges, with mountains and waterfalls on one side, white beaches and the sea on the other. Arriving at Hanalei Colony, located in the peaceful and unspoiled community of Haena,, you will find life has a slower pace, all the hustle-and-bustle left behind. This as exotic an experience as you can get!
There is nothing tame or polished about this area. It is just as nature created it. Sometimes the waves gently lap the shore; sometimes they crash onto the beach. Ha’ena contains a spirit called mana by the old Hawaiians–a power that emanates from sacred places. It is said that Ha’ena has strong mana, and it is the source of many ancient legends. You’ll feel that mana as you unplug, unwind, and relax.
There’s plenty to keep you busy, if you wish: hiking, beaches, tours and activities, horseback riding, even zip-lining. But there’s no pressure to do anything but sit and breathe in the warm sea air, if that’s your heart’s desire. This intimate beachfront hideaway has long been a favorite choice for couples celebrating honeymoons, anniversaries, and other romantic occasions. Set in an incredibly beautiful location on a remote beach, Hanalei Colony embodies romance. And with no televisions in the suites (although WIFI is available), there is nothing to distract couples from fully immersing themselves in the spectacular surroundings—and each other.
For the outdoors enthusiast, Kauai north shore hikes are world-renowned. For experienced hikers, the 11-mile Kalalau Trail beckons with promises of a truly unforgettable hiking experience. One of the most famed hiking trails in the world, it clings to the sheer Napali cliffs starting at Ke’e Beach and ending at Kalalau Beach. Hikers from around the world visit Kauai just to conquer this incredible trail, originally carved out of the mountains by the ancient Hawaiians. Strenuous and more than a bit frightening at times, the Kalalau Trail should not be undertaken without thorough research and preparation. But the rewards are breathtaking–pristine beaches, remote waterfalls, and a rugged coastline known the world over for its magnificent peaks and valleys.
Ringed by 50 miles of beautiful white sand beaches, Kauai is a beach-lover’s fantasy. Whether for swimming, snorkeling, surfing, or simply sunbathing, you’ll find the perfect beach for your purpose. Ha’ena beaches are plentiful and rarely crowded. Hanalei Colony rests on a long stretch of beach that extends more than two miles–wonderful for sandy strolls and beachcombing. Nearby are some of the best swimming and snorkeling beaches on the island – Makua (fondly known as “Tunnels” beach) and lovely crescent-shaped Ke’e at the end of the road on the north shore. The resort looks out toward scenic Hanalei Bay, featuring a two-mile curve of beach dubbed “The Best Beach in America” in the 2009 top ten list by Dr. Beach.
