St. Regis Princeville: The crown jewel of the north shore is the St. Regis Princeville. If you’re looking for a once in a lifetime experience on Kauai, you’ll find it here. Even if you can’t swing it for your whole trip, I would highly recommend at least spending a night or two here. The pool and beach area offer some of the best views on the north shore.

Westin Princeville Ocean Resort: The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas are lovely and although not beachfront (most of Princeville is Cliffside), guests to have access to the beach at the nearby St. Regis. Click here to check rates and availability during your stay.
Hanalei Colony Resort: If you really want to get away from it all, this beachfront hideaway on Kauai’s lush north shore is the place to do it. You won’t find televisions or phones here but you will find plenty of natural beauty. Click here to check rates and availability during your stay.
Hanalei Bay Resort: This fabulous resort tucked away on Kauai’s secluded north shore, has a fabulous pool area, gorgeous beach, and even tennis facilities. It’s also a popular spot for destination weddings. Click here to check rates and availability during your stay.
Kauai Marriott Resort: I think the Kauai Marriott Resort is the best “bang for your buck” beach resort on the island. It has one of the largest pools in Hawaii, a golf course nearby, and a full service spa. Starting at $215/night, the Kauai Marriott Resort is definitely a bargain.
