Epicure - - CONTENTS -

Yearn­ing to learn a new skill in 2019? Why not do it and en­joy a va­ca­tion at the same time? Botan­i­cal artist Lucinda Law’s il­lus­tra­tion workshop takes you to Kauai, Hawaii, for The Cre­ative Re­treat of Gar­den Isle from 23 Fe­bru­ary to 3 March. Guests will em­bark on a jour­ney through Kauai’s many pri­vate gar­dens, in­clud­ing Aller­ton Pri­vate Gar­dens and Mcbryde Gar­den, as well as the pic­turesque Na­pali Coast with Law and botanist Bian Tan to master botan­i­cal il­lus­tra­tion. At­ten­dees can ex­pect an in-depth look into en­demic plants, from the soft blooms of Pōhi­nahina and Ilima to vi­brant suc­cu­lents. The dates co­in­cide with the 41st Waimea Fes­ti­val and Sun­day Farmer’s Mar­ket, where guests can in­dulge in live mu­sic and lo­cal fare. There’s also an op­tion to add an awe-in­spir­ing he­li­copter ride ($280) over Juras­sic Falls and Olokele Canyon, or a Sun­rise Na­pali Cruise ($220) to spot a play­ful pod of spin­ner dol­phins. The full pack­age (from $5,350) in­cludes an eight-night stay at Ki­ahuna Plan­ta­tion Re­sort. The re­sort is lo­cated on Poipu Beach, which is a hotspot for hump­back whales and monk seals. lu­cin­dalaw.co
