New 1 Hotel Hanalei –
The new premier wellness sanctuary of the Hawaiian islands opens on the North Shore of Kauai on February 15th. Previously known as the St. Regis Hotel, the property, after changing hands in 2018, has undergone a two-year, $250 million renovation.
Located on the bluffs of Princeville, the 252-room 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay is not only unique in its location, but unique because of its biophilic design. Organic open spaces flow seamlessly from the indoor into the garden and over into the breathtaking panoramic view of Hanalei Bay – one of the world’s most stunning backdrops. But expect a hefty price tag if you wish to stay there.
The hotel management team met with Princeville Community Leaders yOn Thursday to explain the mission of the SH Hotel Group and the sustainable sanctuaries 1 Hotels are building across the globe. In Princeville this wellness sanctuary aims to be a 100% Certified Carbon Neutral oasis.
