The resort is home to the distinctive 18-hole Makai Golf Club offering golfers the most dramatic backdrop for a round in Hawaii.

There are four dining options at the resort including their signature restaurant, Kauai Grill featuring Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s French and Asian influenced cuisine. At Makana Terrace, guests can come for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for an elegant Hawaiian dining experience and also experience their Hawaiian Dinner Show, “Mailani,” which is offered seasonally. Poolside at the Nalu Kai Grill and Bar, guests can enjoy light Hawaiian influenced cuisine in the shade of their gazebo or in the privacy of their dining cabanas. And lastly at The St. Regis Bar, this club-style bar and lounge serves craft cocktails such as the Aloha Mary, the resort’s take on the St. Regis’ signature Bloody Mary, which was invited at The St. Regis New York decades ago, and offers a daily champagne sabering ritual at sunset, another St. Regis tradition.

One of their luxury amenities, available to guests residing in premium suites, is the pre-eminent St. Regis butler service. Introduced at The St. Regis New York by John Jacob Astor IV himself, St. Regis Butler Service has remained one of the hotel's signature offerings for more than a century. The anticipatory, personalized service of the St. Regis Butler ensures that each guest's unique preferences are known and understood, providing guests with personalized, anticipatory attention before, during and after your stay.

The luxury resort on the North Shore has also been the backdrop and continues to be a very hot-ticket for destination weddings. Further establishing the resort as the premier destination for weddings & honeymoons, The St. Regis Princeville Resort has collaborated with Martin Roberts Design, a premiere floral and event design studio, to create a collection of bridal bouquets, floral crowns, and leis inspired by the majestic island of Kaua'i, exclusively available to couples getting married at the resort.

Additionally, The St. Regis Princeville Resort has recently debuted a Royal Dinner with Dom Pérignon, a private and memorable dining experience for two, at a beautiful outdoor setting enhanced by soft candlelight and Hawaiian torchlight, offering a customized seven-course menu paired with bottles of champagne.  The experience begins when the guests’ private wait staff greets them in the lobby with a lei presentation and escorts them to their secluded dining area where they will begin their dinner with a champagne toast (Dom Perignon 2004) and will enjoy a private sabering lesson, learning how to master the impressive art of sabering, an St. Regis tradition. Following the dining experience, guests can bring any unfinished bottles back to their room to enjoy during their stay, or any unopened bottles can be shipped home to enjoy at a later date.
