Hotel Review: Grand Hyatt Kauai

Last September my husband and I decided to book a five-day vacation to Kauai. We had some Hyatt points from our Chase Sapphire Card and decided to cash them in for a few nights at the Grand Hyatt. We were on a couples trip, and even though there are A LOT of activities for kids in this resort, we never felt like there were a lot of children around us. The hotel is located in Poipu (we went up to Princeville for the second half of the trip) and there is so much to do at this hotel!

1. Lagoons, Pools and Beaches- This was by far the best part of the resort. The beach is a little bit rough (we went in anyway, of course), but you really don't even need the beach with the Lagoon the resort has (pictured above). Early in the morning I would jump in and swim laps around the lagoon. The lovely saltwater was amazing! When the lagoon started to get busy, I rearranged and moved myself and my husband to the adult's only pool.

2. Restaurants- The Grand Hyatt has one of the most beautiful restaurants on the Island in their hotel: Tidepools. We enjoyed an incredible meal, view and hospitality. We did venture out quite a bit to eat, but it is hard to pass up a beautiful restaurant in your hotel.

3. Rooms and Resort- Even though we left the resort quite a bit to sail, explore, hike and eat, I could have easily stayed at the resort forever. They have hiking trails that leave from across the street, fun outdoor games scattered all over the resort and our room had a beautiful balcony on which to relax. There were almost too many activities in the resort, which made it hard to leave and explore.

Even though we stayed in a vacation rental for the second half of our trip, I would 100% stay again at the Grand Hyatt Kauai.
