1 Hotel Hanalei Bay is a stunning example of a building that stands for something. With sustainability at the core of its foundation, the re-imagination rather than complete rebuild of this island oasis has already saved 144.6 tons of materials from entering landfills and 73.8 tons of greenhouse gas emissions from entering the atmosphere. Through positive partnerships, innovative initiatives, and mindful design, this sanctuary not only blends in beautifully with the ethereal beauty of Kauaʻi—but also works to honor and preserve it in every possible way.

Throughout the sanctuary, you’ll find 144.6 tons of salvaged materials turned into furniture, sustainable art pieces that pay homage to their surroundings, and an array of reclaimed Teak Joists, Puka lava stone, quartz, Caesarstone, and so much more.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We set a goal to increase Black representation in leadership to 15% and female representation in leadership to 50% by 2024. At the end of 2022, we reached 10% BIPOC representation and 43% female representation. At 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay, we’re proud to say that 20% of our design and construction intentionally included contracts with BIPOC workers, and we will continue this intention throughout our operations.
