1 Hotel Hanalei Bay has announced it is now accepting reservations in anticipation of the wellness sanctuary’s flagship property debut in beautifully lush, verdant Kauai, according to Travel Pulse. Meant to serve as a harmonious extension of the natural world, the hotel is set to be the quintessential venue for wanderlusters, newlyweds, and business groups to indulge in the unsurpassed beauty of “the garden island.”
“The setting and surrounds are simply astonishingly stunning. Not only in light of the 1 Hotels nature-centric vision but in the spirit of nostalgia. The Hanalei Bay area provided extraordinary memories to me and my family over the decades. There simply could not be a better place to showcase our commitment to the environment, to wellness and to teaching each visitor that one can lead a more sustainable life without sacrificing bespoke luxury,” said Barry Sternlicht, Chairman and CEO of Starwood Capital Group.
A Transformation for Transformative Experiences
Following a $250 million transformation, the 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay aims to better honor the local culture while safeguarding the natural world as it in turns opens the walls of its resort to the healing, natural splendor of the island. Upon completion, the property will contain 252 suites, a 7,900-square-foot wellness center, renovated pools with sweeping tropical views and an 18,000 square-foot spa and fitness center featuring a wealth of holistic treatment options.
On-site nutritional, medical and wellness experts will offer 24/7 guidance to ensure each guest leaves with a deeper understanding of the mind-body balance and their connection to the natural world. Five dining and beverage venues in turn feature cuisine and food plucked from on-site gardens and neighboring farms to provide a fresh, local and sustainable source of nourishment for guests.
1 Hotel Hanalei Bay will also offer four, seven and 10-day customized wellness destination retreats to guests that will help pave the way for a soothing, and relaxing on-site experience with features ranging from in-room sage burning ceremonies to circadian lighting and sleep-tracking technology.
Further bolstering the already luxurious surroundings will be the rich culture of the communities within Hanalei Bay. Guests will have an opportunity to not just immerse themselves in the spa-like atmosphere of the resort, but also in a local culture rife with generosity and spirit for an all-encompassing wellness experience.
