North-shore villa resort offers room to move and sweeping vistas
Perched on a cliff, the 346-room Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas lies between the verdant green of the north shore's natural landscape and startling blue of the Pacific. The look and feel is upscale and modern with a nod to island style. Outside, neat lawns and expansive pool areas give way to vast, panoramic vistas of the pleated cliffs and mountains of Kauai. Spacious villas offer luxury, and nice touches include private lanais and Westin's notable Heavenly Bed. An on-site restaurant, markets and a casual poolside bar add convenience.

  • Four pools, including one for children
  • Year-round Westin Kids Club for ages 5-12
  • Complimentary shuttle to Makai/Prince golf courses

first class facility and service

Great place to relax and get away but the lack of restaurants in this area was a definite negative. The facility is great if you do your own cooking. We would definitely return if the restaurant scene improves.

Westin Princeville

Would definitely recommend for the price. The north shore is beautiful and relaxing. If you did not want to you would never have to leave the north shore as there are plenty of activities and eating options available. For the money the Westin was an extremely nice hotel and fit the needs of my new wife and I great!

New clean hotel with fully equipped room

Great new hotel in Princeville location (2008). Rooms are clean and very roomy with kitchen and washer/dryer. Location isn't the best since no direct beach access but it's only minutes away from everything (Princeville shopping center and Hanalei Bay). The bluff does give you ocean views and view of the lighthouse and the pool area is pretty nice. Missing was breakfast/buffet at the hotel. There are BBQ's around the hotel where you can cook your own meat.

The real Hawaii

I didn't stay much at the hotel but the staff was very helpful with the things to do in the area and in helping you book activites, if yours didn't work out. It was peaceful and nobody overwhelm you with things they wanted you to do. I loved the room. I'm sure there are better places but with that said, I didn't expect it to be so nice. I felt like I got a great deal. Nice veiw of the ocean, great parking, the grounds were very nicely kept, staff was helpful, and the room had everything I needed to minimize the time I would have had to go out. I enjoyed the water and the beach (snorkling, swimming), Kayaking, hiking, a little shopping (my least favorite) scuba was canceled for my wife due to swells from weather, zip-lining and we skipped some of the other activites to enjoy some more intimate time together away from other, which was very easy to do. Overall I would say that this trip was one of the best I've had. If I ever go back to Kawai I know were and with whom I want to stay. Thank you Orbitz! Rick Garcia

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

I picked Time beacuse it = money. Research and reserve the things you really want to do early. The ealier you get in the less you pay for most things. Noting is really that far from the other. In one day you can go from one side of the island to the other, and still enjoy a few activies while you take in some great scenery. Leave yourself a few days open to reschedule just in case things don't go the way you planned. Look around for a better deal. We found some cheaper deals on activities by talking with the locals. Hikinig cost nothing except some energy and drinking water, and you can go on some really nice trails there on the both South and North Shore. bring your energy this Island is a little more rustic that the others, I hope it never changes.

Beautiful Hotel / Great Location

The Westin is a beautiful hotel with great pools, clean rooms and friendly staff. Only bad experience we had was the rooms have thin walls. We had a family staying next door with a screaming baby - we heard everything and felt like they were in the same room. While visiting the island (be sure to bring hiking/walking shoes), we explored the Waimea canyon, Wailua Falls, Queen's Bath, the Secret Beach, Hanalei Bay and drove from one end of the island to the other. When exploring, be sure to bring drinks and something to snack on - roads are long and winding. Another tip: bring mosquito repellant (we came back with some major bug bites). Overall, the trip was fabulous! Wish we had stayed longer than the 10 days we had booked.

We bought food items from Foodland - prices are outrageous compared to mainland prices. The Westin has great grilling stations so be sure to take advantage of them.

Great for a Honeymoon

We loved our room at the Westin! It had a great whirlpool tub, great shower, nice kitchette with all the needed pans and utensils. (we didn't use them but they were there). The staff was friendly and the rooms were very clean. The bed was super comfortable too! We found a path to the beach below the hotel. It is very steep so good shoes are helpful. We wished we were closer to the beach, but in building #4 you face the ocean so you do have an ocean view. The poolside bar was nice, they have a drink special at happy hour for $6.

We shopped for lunches and snacks at Foodland in Princeville shopping center. They had great sandwiches there to pack up for the beach. Ask for a membership card to get the discount. Dont forget to pack a colapsable cooler for drinks, beer and food. We had to buy a styrofoam one and ended up throwing it away on our last day. Cant pack that!

Westin Pricevill

I was traveling for work, great hotel, great staff. Beautiful Views, I think the only thing I didn't like about the hotel, is there is no beach access.

If staying in Princeville don't miss the chance to visit Queen's Bath. It's in a non-discrete location in Princeville with sparse parking. Worth the hike down the trail to witness this unique swimming hole.
