This is truly the paradise mega-resort that one envisions when they think of a Hawaiian paradise - amazing colors, fruity drinks, coconut trees, and sunshine. It's a great place for honeymooners and families alike, with a mix of activities that would suit both nicely.
For a special treat, hike out to the rock bluff on the beach behind the hotel and watch the sunset.

The common areas are absolutely stunning! The lobby/entry area is completely open air and allows you to see from the front door area all the way to the ocean. There are lush plants and authentic Hawaiian decorations as well as comfortable furniture to lounge. There are wonderful rooms, most with an amazing view. The spa is superb and full of wonderful choices for treatments or workouts.
This is what I would want my house to be like, if I lived in the tropics. The grounds are impeccably maintained and full of things to see and do. There is a waterslide for the kids, a free-form pool with grass deck and bridges and koi ponds all over the place. You can sit at lunch and watch the fish play in the water below you. The view down the coast is wonderful.
The rooms were nicely furnished and maintained. There is a bathtub/shower combo and a separate toilet area with a door. There is also a big mirror with shelving on either side for stuff.
We had a problem with extra towels not being delivered quickly and the manager sent up a huge fruit basket the next day apologizing for it. It was truly a full-service thing to do.
Go. . . you won't be disappointed.

The pool area is a winding pool with waterfalls, slides, and caves. At the bottom of the pool area is an in-water volleyball net and basketball rim. In addition to the pools, there is a saltwater lagoon where you can rent a kayak, take a leisurely swim, or relax on their own beach. There are eight places where you can eat, including their own luau (not included with hotel stay). There’s plenty of shopping on site with an art gallery. A showing of tropical birds in the lobby area is also a pleasant sight. Not only is this place great for a honeymoon or romantic retreat, there is plenty for families to do. This is a resort that I would go back to every time I visit Kauai.

After 17 hours stuck in planes and airports on my trip to Kauai, I spent my first morning on the island getting a facial, an herbal wrap, and a body massage at the Anara Spa just a short walk from my room (Sampler Package--$135 in April 2000). I indulged my body in the sauna and then felt completely relaxed in the outside lava rock-shower with the pale yellow sunshine of the Pacific beating down on my shoulders. Then it was off to the one of the hotel’s five available restaurants to enjoy a great meal!
