Idyllic Luxury Island Getaway to Beautiful Kauai, Hawaii

EXPERIENCE OVERVIEW

The island of Kauai is the oldest and fourth largest of the Hawaiian isles. Often called the “Garden Island” because of its lush, green valleys, stunning coastline, and centuries-old tropical rainforests, it’s a place of incredible natural beauty and rich Hawaiian culture.

Here, you can enjoy time on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, play golf on world-class courses, dine on fresh Hawaiian seafood, and explore the many historic sites, small towns, and natural wonders the island is known for. On the West Side, you’ll find state parks with hiking trails and panoramic views. On the North Shore is the magnificent Nāpali Coast, a 17-mile stretch lined with massive 3,000-foot tall cliffs. The East Side, nicknamed the Royal Coconut Coast because of its many coconut palm trees, is home to a variety of outdoor attractions. And on the South Shore, you’ll find cultural landmarks and cozy beach towns interspersed with luxury, oceanside resorts and boutique hotels.
 
For this trip, you’ll have deluxe accommodations at one of those luxury beach hotels on the South Shore, with a spacious, light-filled guest room, premium in-room and resort amenities, family-friendly services and activities, onsite dining, and warm Hawaiian aloha hospitality—all steps away from the sand and surf and convenient to some of the island’s best restaurants, shops, and natural attractions.

You’ll also enjoy two exciting excursions that we’ve arranged to make your vacation extra special.

The first is a fun, half-day guided tour of some of South Shore’s most iconic landmarks and natural wonders. Starting with a morning drive to the majestic Waimea Canyon (nicknamed the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific”) on the southwest side of the island, you’ll have the opportunity to explore coastline, waterfalls, State Park hiking trails, coffee estates, monk seal resting spots, sea turtle beaches, and more—all on an adventure that’s customized to your interests. With experienced guides by your side, excited to show you the best sights and answer your Kauai questions, you’ll immerse yourselves in the wonders of the island, and learn more about the culture, history, and geology of the area.

Your second included excursion takes you onto the water for a fantastic full-day snorkeling trip along the stunning Nāpali Coast to the nearby island of Niihau. Led by an experienced captain and crew aboard a sleek 65’ catamaran, this seven-hour adventure includes a sunrise breakfast, gourmet on-board lunch, cold drinks throughout the day, and plenty of time to snorkel in the clear blue water around the famed Lehua Crater—where native fish, monk seals, manta rays, and underwater lava cathedrals are common. Snorkel gear and basic instruction is provided, and there’s space to relax onboard and soak up the sun when you need a break. Post-snorkel, you’ll cruise back to Kauai with memories of an incredible once-in-a-lifetime experience. 

In between the scheduled activities, you’ll have plenty of free time to enjoy more of the island on your own. Tee off at one of Kauai’s scenic, championship golf courses. Take a walk on Shipwreck Beach. Hike the Maha’ulepu Heritage Trail. Visit one of the island’s historic sites—Kāhua O Kāneiolouma, the Makauwahi Cave Reserve, or the Old Koloa Sugar Mill. Go for a thrilling ride on a traditional Hawaiian outrigger canoe. Or simply explore the shops at Poipu Village or Old Kōloa Town.

When you need to rest and recharge, you can lounge by the hotel pool or on the beach, book a spa treatment, grab an island cocktail from your local tiki bar, or enjoy delicious Hawaiian seafood at Red Salt restaurant or Eating House 1849.

After your stay in Kauai, you can choose to fly home or combine this trip with one of our other Hawaiian island getaways for an extended—and truly unforgettable—vacation experience.
