Located on the north of the island, Kauai’s St. Regis is on Hanalei Bay. The sunsets over the bay are spectacular, and best savored at the St. Regis Bar, where you can take in that precious view with signature cocktails. And every evening, the bar hosts a champagne sabering, which makes the sunset a very special and dramatic event. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the hotel because the service at the St. Regis is excellent — in my opinion, the best on the island. However, due to the location of the hotel, it seems like the heat gets trapped, so lying on the beach is not very comfortable. But there are plenty of other activities to enjoy in while in Kauai, where the hiking is world-renowned.
