1 Hotel Hanalei Bay, the flagship wellness resort of 1 Hotels on the North Shore of Hawaii island, Kaua’i, is a nature-focused luxury resort overlooking a picturesque stretch of the island. Valuing the connection between people, place and nature, the resort’s USD $300 million build prioritises biophilic design principles. A multi-year conservation plan revived the site with native vegetation, weaving a narrative of Polynesian heritage. The resort’s 252 nature-inspired rooms and suites feature reclaimed teak, lava stone walls and hand-woven abacá furnishings, creating a sacred ambiance. Three signature suites offer panoramic views of the stunning crescent-shaped bay, enhancing the nature-inspired experience.
