The Princeville Hotel is a 5-star luxury hotel perched on the cliffs above Hanalei Bay in Kauai ? during the resort renovation, greenroofs were added to the stepped roofs below the main hotel to soften the view out to the bay (and improve images displayed on hotel?s web cam). At the top plateau of Hanalei Bay, three separate buildings gracefully terrace down Puu Poa Ridge to accommodate 252 luxurious guest rooms. Because of this unique layout, the Lobby entrance is located on the 9th floor and the Beach/Pool are reached via the 1st floor.
