Hanalei Colony Resort, Haena, Kauai, Hawaii $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
This collection of 48 condos in Haena (a 15-minute drive west of Hanalei) has one major draw: views so idyllic that they almost look Photoshopped. From second-floor corner ocean-view units, you get a 180-degree eyeful of waves crashing on golden sand with the Bali Hai mountains as a backdrop. On a clear night, the stargazing is otherworldly as well. The two-bedroom, two-bath condos are otherwise average, with interiors done up in tasteful island decor and wicker furniture, but they work well for four people, either two couples, single friends, or a family. Each has a full kitchen, although there's also the Mediterranean Gourmet restaurant and a café that serves aromatic coffee and baked goods to a parade of surfers and locals. The decent spa takes advantage of the stunning views with massage tables under an oceanfront Polynesian-style pavilion. Take note that in the winter the surf is quite big; the water is better for swimming in the summer.
