A Look Inside Little Ole' Kauai's Largest Resort
Although Kauai and the word "big" would never be used in the same sentence to describe its size, it does have a surprisingly large property in the form of the Grand Hyatt Kauai, which is located on 50-acres with over 600 guest rooms, an outdoor spa, seven restaurants and a golf course.
It's a resort in every sense of the word, but it certainly is a beautiful property. It recently renovated its 37 suites and committed itself to green initiatives, the coolest of which is a design aspect that says no building can be higher than the tallest coconut tree, ensuring that the natural environment remains a main attraction despite it being a sprawling resort.
The thing to keep in mind is that while its location at Poipu Beach puts you equidistant from some of the main points of interest (Waimea Canyon, Na Pali Coast and Hanalei Bay), it is not located within walking distance of anything, and once you are on property, you're on property. So keep that in mind, as we understand different travelers will view that aspect in different ways.
