Kauai Getaway: Trip Planning

A few months ago, there was a great deal for flights to Hawaii.  So after getting Dan's buy in, I booked our first trip to the island of Kauai for November.  We have previously been to Maui and Oahu, so this would mark off Hawaiian island number 3.  :)

We heard from friends that Kauai was very beautiful, scenic, and much more relaxing and quiet compared to Maui or Oahu.  And it had been a solid 3 months since our last trip on a plane.  It seemed like forever (but not really).  So we were really excited to check it out, get some R&R, and just soak it all in.

We wanted to explore the full island, so we split our stay--2 nights at the Sheraton in the South and 2 nights at the St. Regis in the North.

For this trip, we actually didn't plan much--our plan was to relax and enjoy the beautiful island.

Beautiful Hanalei Bay

Here's how we'll break down our 5 day, 4 night trip:

  1. Can't wait to read the reports! The Weekly Flyers (Baby included) are heading here next year. Please make sure to include many salivating foodie pictures from your culinary exploits.

    1. We're slowly writing the reports :) Yup, will definitely include our food reports, although I would have to say both my husband and I were a bit disappointed with the food scene in Kauai :p

  2. S.L.O.W.L.Y. may be the operative word there :)

    Patiently looking forward to the next post in the series.

    1. Ha :) So SORRY! We've been quite busy (obviously) and have neglected our blog :p I have some drafted will try to post somewhat soon-ish :D
