The privileged beachfront nest is done up in Trina Turk colors and prints with amenities curated by Trina herself including an iPad pre-loaded with Trina’s favorite magazines, games, applications and websites; a special Trina Turk-inspired cocktail and lunch menu; retro board games for children and adults; and even Trina Turk white china, glassware and azure ceramic hurricane lamps to use for romantic beachside dinners.
Despite our fears for the worst, it seems the St. Regis Princeville is actually still on track to reopen Oct. 1 (or Sept. 26, if you trust its website). The first-ever St. Regis resort on Hawaii, the Kauai resort is finishing up a multi-million dollar renovation that includes a new Halele’a Spa, golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones II, and a new resto—called Kaua’I Grill—by Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
To ring in the good news, the 252-room St. Regis Princeville is launching the Quintessential Celebration Series, a four-part guest party through October and November. The four celebration offers will be available to a limited number of guests and will include a five-night stay for two, beachside welcome reception, two days of activities and events, and a ticket to the St. Regis Princeville Gala Evening with “notable honorary guests.”
The St. Regis Princeville Resort on the island of Kauai in Hawaii will now be reopening on October 1. The hotel, previously known as the Princeville Resort, closed back in September to undergo some massive renovations. Pretty much everything has been redone including the hotel's killer pool area.
But all is not well in paradise. The hotel was set to open on April 19 but was pushed back as construction won't even be completed until sometime in July. And Hawaii is going through an incredibly rough time right now. When the hotel does finally (hopefully?) reopen, rates for a standard mountain or garden view room will begin at $360.
Infinity pools are wonderful things. Sipping a drink, peering over the edge of the pool and blending into the trackless ocean or the topless sky are sublime sensations available at many fine resorts. But the Princeville Hotel and Resort, on the North Shore of Kauai, may have all the other infinity pools topped. Set at sea level, this pool looks out directly into the middle section of one of the best surfing waves in the world, the righthand freight train that slams though Hanalei Bay on big swells.
If its really big -- and it can get over 30 feet from trought to crest -- you might have trouble spotting the surfers but you'll take in an equally epic view of massive surf seen almost as a surfer would see it paddling out. Of course, you have to stay at this pricey resort to partake. Such are the costs of outrageous infinity pools.
