Grand Hyatt in Poipu. This hotel offers probably the best swimming pool on the island and some of the best food. It is a relaxing hotel that is top notch in terms of quality and luxury.



The Marriot at Kalapaki Beach in Lihue is one of the best locations for seeing the entire island. It has a very nice beach that is sheltered from open ocean, providing the ideal spot for swimming and paddle boarding, unlike the Hyatt. This location is within walking distance to many shops and restaurants including the famous Dukes restaurant.
