5 Star Resorts in Hawaii

Montage Kapalua Bay, Lahaina, Island of Hawaii

Nestled in lush tropical gardens just minutes from Kapalua Bay Beach, this 5-star gem is a collection of upscale residences, many with incredible sea views. The jaw-dropping pool alone may beckon you here — it features a multilevel design connected by waterfalls and lined by loungers. Dining options include the hotel's signature restaurant, Cane & Canoe, and the Mahana Market for a quick coffee or treats. Can't wait to hit the water? Try cliff jumping into crystalline waters just offshore.

Halekulani Hotel, Honolulu, Oahu

You couldn't ask for a better location than what the Halekulani Hotel offers — it's smack dab in the middle of the Waikiki action, with Waikiki Beach mere steps away. Plus, it boasts three on-site restaurants, two cocktail bars, and a weekly (free!) wine reception on the terrace. Not too many 5-star hotels in Hawaii can compete with that.

Luxury 5 Star Hawaii Accommodations

Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Most 5-star hotels in Hawaii have staff members who go above and beyond — the Four Season Resort Hualalai is no exception. Time and again, TripAdvisor reviewers have praised the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff here, resulting in a coveted 5-star guest rating. But besides that, it's got a stunning pool area with a waterfall and thatched-roof huts, plus access to a lagoon-like beach. You'll also find a sushi lounge, an American steakhouse and a beach bar. Sunsets here are in a class of their own.

Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa, Poipu, Kauai

One of Poipu's most upscale resorts, the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa impresses with 50 acres of tropical gardens, access to a white-sand beach and newly renovated rooms. Two connected swimming pools with waterfalls and grottos offer a place to relax and decompress — that is, when you're not at the 45,000-square-foot spa. Don't miss the 1.5-acre saltwater lagoon, which you can explore with a snorkeling session or by kayak. For dinner, you'll have your choice of seafood, Italian or sushi at the resort's three on-site restaurants.

Luxury Resorts in Hawaii

The Kahala Hotel & Resort, Honolulu, Oahu

Yet another 5-star hotel in Hawaii's biggest city, the Kahala Hotel & Resort keeps guests in a state of vacation bliss with five dining establishments, access to the beach, and a private swimming lagoon where dolphins reside. The spa boasts nine private treatment suites, each with its own shower and changing area. And while rooms are comfortable with 40-inch flat-screen TVs and free WiFi, there's a shuttle service to get you around when you're ready to paint the town red.
