We were engaged on Sept 1st, 2009 in Kauai right next to Princeville.  My dad is a golfer so I stopped in to purchase golf balls and saw that it was stunning.  Sorry, I’m not sure about the Hyatt.  As far as rain, it was gorgeous there all week and only rained one time for 5 minutes.  Princeville is right next to a cool local town of Hanalei and slightly further is the Napali Coast which is by far one of the most incredible places I’ve ever seen. My Fiance hired a hiking guide/photographer that day (Danny) and we saw the island from a local perspective. Message me for his contact information – he’s very affordable and makes organic mango and chocolate truffles, mousse, etc too.  We liked him so much we joined him for another, more intense, adventure hike through the middle of the island to incredible falls.  The island is much smaller than we realized and I recommend exploring the entire area.  Poipu is a cool place to visit, but we loved Kipu were there are “secret” waterfalls with a rope swing and place to jump into a big pool!

Let me know if either of you want more information. In total, we saw the lighthouse, snorkeled on Secret Beach, did a plane tour, boat tour, drove up to Waimea Canyon (Hawaii’s Grand Canyon), checked out Poipu, shopped in Kapa’a and enjoyed the Farmer’s Market.

Congratulations to you both!

my Father-In-Law just returned from the St Regis in Kauai – – – their pictures are breath taking and their stay was the best they’ve had since visiting the Island for the past 11+ years.  According to their review there isn’t a whole lot to review – the St regis sounds spectacular.  You’re one lucky gal if that where you decide to go Wink

we stayed there while in Kauaii for our honeymoon in June before the reno.  It all depends on what you want,.  The views from the hotel are stunning and we LOVED the northern part of the island, it was so lush, the scenery was amazing and we thought hanalei was the coolest little town.    We spent little time at the pool/beach – we went on amazing hikes to the waterfalls, we took a helicopter tour, we rode ATVs, we drove the island…..

It barely rained while we were there, but it is the rainier side and the beaches are not as good. They Hyatt is a much bigger resort – if you want a lot of pool/beach time that is probably the place.

We’re going there for the 1st week of our honeymoon! Can’t offer reviews yet, but based on all our research it seems like an amazing hotel/area.

I stayed right next door to it last June and it was INCREDIBLE!!! Kauai itself is a gorgeous island. It’s not very touristy, it’s more relaxed and very comfortable anywhere you go. It’s definitely a paradise!!!

But I know that the St. Regis has it’s own area for snorkeling (some of the best snorkeling!) and has it’s own little beach with nice lounge chairs.

<3 Good luck!

st regis is GORGEOUS – you wont be disappointed – and dont worry hawaii is like florida, even if its rainy for a bit it will go away very fast, or you can go to another beach for the hour or two.
