Embracing Nature's Beauty: Harbour's Custom Furniture and Nicole Hollis's Vision at 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay

Rooted on the north shore of Kauai, the 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay stands as a testament to sustainable luxury and mindful design. Its panoramic views offer a utopian backdrop, where guests can immerse themselves in the island's pristine ambiance. Adding to its accolades, this beautiful resort is currently shortlisted for BEST RESORT 2024 by the Ahead Awards, underscoring its excellence in hospitality and design.

This open-air structure seamlessly integrates with its surroundings, embracing local foliage, daylight, and textures to create a biophilic haven. Nicole Hollis, a world-renowned interior designer, infused each design decision with reverence for Hawaiian heritage, while Harbour's custom furnishings, crafted from sustainably sourced materials, adorn every corner of the property.

Amidst the property, a seamless integration of interior and exterior spaces unfolds, captivating guests with mesmerizing vistas and our bespoke organic furnishings, crafting an idyllic escape.

The pool areas are a testament to our dedication in creating immersive experiences. Our custom-designed cabanas, daybeds, and loungers offer guests a luxurious retreat amidst the tropical landscape. Crafted from sustainably sourced teak, these pieces seamlessly blend with their surroundings, inviting guests to bask in the sun in style.

In keeping with the hotel's commitment to sustainability, a significant portion of the furniture is crafted from reclaimed solid wood, imbuing each piece with a rich history and natural beauty. Infused with the essence of nature, our Noosa Teak Easy Chair invites guests to immerse themselves in the balcony scenery, enhanced by a resin weave that harmonizes flawlessly with the ambiance of the hotel suites.

Nicole Hollis's design philosophy, inspired by the organic forms and raw beauty of nature, is evident throughout the property. As she eloquently puts it, "We're so rigid in our design, but nature is so curved and soft." This harmony between human-made and natural elements is what sets 1 Hotel apart—a place where every detail serves to honor and spotlight Kauaiʻi's boundless natural wonder.

Surrounded by sparkling waters, tropical flora, and verdant cliffs, the 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay stands as a beacon of luxury and sustainability on Hawaii's Garden Island. In collaboration with Nicole Hollis's visionary design and our custom furniture pieces, this sanctuary invites guests to reconnect with nature and indulge in the ultimate island getaway.
