KAUA’I

LuxeGetaways - - Couples Travel -

Kaua’i and ro­mance are in­ter­twined. Elvis filmed Blue Hawaii here. The “Bali Ha’i” peaks of Hanalei starred in the movie South Pa­cific. From green and lush ar­eas; to dry and des­o­late land­scapes; or the strik­ing Nā Pali coast and lovely beaches, ev­ery part of this beau­ti­ful is­land has a dif­fer­ent look and feel.

Splurge on Kaua’i: Kickin’ It At Kukui'ula

Kukui'ula is a re­sort com­mu­nity on Kaua’i’s south side of­fer­ing prop­erty to build your very own va­ca­tion house. But most peo­ple do not re­al­ize that you can ac­tu­ally book a stay here at an is­land-style cot­tage, bun­ga­low or villa. For ro­mance, it is hard to re­sist your ex­clu­sive one- or two-bed­room lux­ury cot­tage that is sur­rounded by a grassy lawn and trop­i­cal flow­ers. At night on your lanai, breathe in the balmy air and watch the stars come out be­tween the coco palms. Kukuiula.com

Thrifty on Kaua’i: Sweet Value For Waimea Plan­ta­tion Cot­tages

An en­tire plan­ta­tion vil­lage of re­stored sugar plan­ta­tion work­ers' cot­tages awaits you just out­side Waimea, fronting a black sand beach. At Waimea Plan­ta­tion Cot­tages, th­ese sim­ple-look­ing cot­tages dat­ing back to the 1920's and 1930's open to re­veal beau­ti­ful pe­riod fur­nish­ings (not what you would find in the worker's homes, but per­haps the plan­ta­tion man­ager's home), and all the ameni­ties you could de­sire. Come for the peace and quiet. This place will slow you down, and al­low you to feel the real rhythm of Hawai’i. WaimeaPlan­ta­tion.com
