Haute Escape: The Kauai Beach Resort

Although it’s the unofficial end of summer, I say it ain’t over ’til the weather dips below 80 degrees. Here in Hawaii that means we’re pretty much celebrating summer year-round. So, if you’re interested in stretching vacation season out a bit longer, I suggest a trip to paradise. Kauai, Hawaii, is especially captivating with its lush greenery, waterfalls, and romantic appeal.

The Kauai Beach Resort is an ideal place to celebrate eternal summer. Located just five minutes from the Lihue Airport makes this last minute vacation low pressure and allows an easy shift into R & R mode.

A stunning resort on the Eastern Coconut Coast of the Garden Isle, the hotel is set on 25 acres on Kauai’s longest stretch of beach. Retreat to beautifully appointed suites featuring lanais with views of the ocean, mountains and courtyards. Plantation-style accommodations offer a kitschy Hawaiian feel.

Like LA, the Kauai Beach Resort is about 20 minutes from everything. So, if you feel like leaving the luxe seaside resort, landmarks like Hanalei Bay, Lumahai Beach and Waimea Canyon aren’t too far away. Should you opt to go without a car, Wailua Falls is a mere five miles from the hotel and one of the best rivers to kayak to the beautiful fern grotto.

For couples, friends and families who simply want to stay put, Kauai Beach Resort recently launched several new on-site programs that are sure to keep you amused. E Komo Mai (welcoming) receptions take place on Tuesdays featuring music and mingling by the pool from 5 to 6 p.m. along with traditional hula and chants by Kauai Kumu Hula Doric Yaris. Each Thursday, puka shell and lei-making classes along hula sessions happen. Also, enjoy evening art and wine receptions debuting Kauai-based artists plus indulge in wine tasting and pupu (appetizers) on Thursdays. Pau Hana parties take place on Fridays at the Oceanfest showcasing live local entertainment on the pool deck and a clambake at Naupaka Terrace. Saturdays bring guests the Pool Pa’ina party complete with a barbecue, cool treats, beer and cocktail specials and live entertainment.

In addition to the impressive roster of guest friendly perks, the property also boasts a 24-hour state-of-the art fitness center, four swimming pools, two whirlpool spas and the Hawaiian Rain Forest Salon & Spa, all of which you may enjoy at your leisure. Complimentary breakfast is well known for its freshest island produce selection and easy shuttle transportation make this Hawaii vacation option an effortless and stress free choice.

Kauai Beach Resort is a breath-taking resort ideal for romance and adventure.
