Royal Sonesta Kaua'i Resort Lihue

Hotel Update

Effective July 8, the State of Hawai‘i will eliminate its pre-travel testing/quarantine requirement for domestic travelers to Hawai‘i who have been fully vaccinated in the United States. Travelers to Hawai‘i must upload their CDC issued vaccination record card to the state’s Safe Travels Program (here) website and have that card with them upon arrival in the State of Hawai‘i.

Nestled amidst the lush greenery of Kaua'i, our Royal Sonesta Kaua'i Resort Lihue is a Garden Island oasis. Our Kaua'i resort enjoys a glorious setting on golden sands, with opportunities to indulge in beachside spa treatments, five restaurants offering a variety of cuisines, a weekly luau, and the largest one-level pool in Hawaii. And if you’re here for business or planning a special event, we have over 27,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and event space.

Make yourself at home in your stylish, modern guest room, with views of the ocean, gardens, or pool. And when you set out to explore, the natural beauty of Hanalei Bay and the nearby Waimea Canyon State Park are sure to fill your days in paradise with enchantment.
