Not up to St. Regis caliber.
Posted Jan 16, 2017
The location of this hotel is amazing, consisting of a somewhat small beach area and beautiful view of the north side of Kauai. Unfortunately, this is the hotel's only saving grace. The hotel is in great need of updating and repair and all the hotel staff knows it as well.
My wife and I found the restaurants and menu's to be very poor as well. We planned to stay and eat at the various restaurants for the whole trip initially, but after trying them all we had to go off-site after the first few days (Breakfast buffet was the only exception, but breakfast is easy).
I'm very surprised that a brand like St. Regis would allow a hotel of this condition to remain in its portfolio and taint the reputation they have earned for quality and luxury. I would stay here again, but only when the rates are "on sale", never full price.
