Golden and white sand beaches. Green tropical forests. Cascading waterfalls. Our Kauai resorts are far from crowds or high-rises. Your Kauai vacation is a feast meant to be devoured. Whether you decide to stay in a peaceful Kauai vacation rental at Kiahuna Plantation & The Beach Bungalows, or a secluded beachfront hideaway at Kaha Lani Resort, the landscape will wrap its arms around you and you'll be welcomed with warm aloha.
Because of its colossal green mountains and wildly lush vegetation, Kauai has been the film location site for more than 50 major motion picture and television films including, classics such as "South Pacific," "Blue Hawaii" with Elvis Presley, and more recently "Jurassic Park," "Mighty Joe Young", and "Six Days/Seven Nights." The island has also been inspiration for legendary writers such as Ernest Hemingway, Mark Twain, Jack London, and Robert Louis Stevenson. Not to mention, lovers. A Kauai honeymoon or Kauai wedding is a fairytale come true for thousands of couples every year. Who wouldn't want to exchange vows on a sea cliff or beside a waterfall? Or floating up a lagoon in a canoe escorted by Hawaiian paddlers singing their soft song? Or in a 19th-century church adorned with sweet garlands of maile, pikake, and ginger?
Kauai will inspire your creativity because there's so much at your disposal. Kauai activities are everywhere you go. But before dashing off to experience everything, remember this island's main attraction is its natural beauty and unassuming lifestyle. It's about taking it slow. Pace yourself and let the local culture sink in wherever you go. Highlights of your vacation might be the view from the famed "Grand Canyon of the Pacific," Waimea Canyon, or a hike along the awesome Napali Coast. It could be a day at Hanalei Bay, Nawiliwili Bay, or Poipu Beach. Or a trip to the "hidden" valley of Kalalau for a taste of why Kauai is called the "Garden Isle." And when it comes time to relax and listen to the soft slush of the surf washing up on the beach, we'll be there with first-rate Kauai vacation accommodation. All of our Kauai hotels feature quality service and great amenities.
