WHY IT'S HOT Their first foray onto Hawaii, the Princeville combines St. Regis’s legacy with the island’s spirit. The design, guided by the native principle of the Ahupua'a—a balance with nature—incorporates cascading chandeliers that echo Na Molokama Mountain's waterfall.
WHAT TO DO The packed calendar includes surfing demos, scuba lessons and performances from local musicians. After a busy day, dine at Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Kaua'i Grill.
WHO'S BEEN THERE Alicia Keys celebrated her 30th birthday at the resort and George Clooney booked a stay while filming The Descendents.
