Trip Report KAUAI TRIP REPORT...ST. REGIS PRINCEVILLE AND THE NORTH SHORE

Jump to last reply

I wrote a huge report a few nights ago and tried to submit it... And it disappeared! So I'll try again.

This was my first time to Kauai and I can't imagine any other island being as gorgeous as this one. I traveled all over the island while I was there, and in my opinion, the North Shore is the most beautiful part of the island. The mountains are breathtaking. I was worried about the rain on the North Shore, but the weather was perfect. There are clouds at times, but they pass within minutes. There was an occasional shower, but it would pass in 5-10 minutes, followed by sunshine and rainbows.

Day 1- after ten hours of flying and a six hour time difference, we were exhausted. We rented a convertible at the airport in Lihue and checked in. The St. Regis is extremely expensive, but if you can stomach the cost, or are willing to splurge for a special occasion, it's a place you won't forget. Perched on a cliff overlooking Hanalei Bay with the majestic mountains front and center, you have gorgeous views from the lobby, terraces, and most rooms. We hung out at the pool for a few hours (and had my first Mai Tai...yum!,,) and then ordered sandwiches to go from room service and took our food down to the beach and sat under a Mangrove tree, and watched the sunset. One of my favorite things about the beaches here are the beautiful trees that provide lots of shade right on the sand.

Day 2- jet lag. Ugh. Slept poorly but still excited to be here. Had a delicious breakfast on the terrace at the St. Regis overlooking the water and the gorgeous, lush mountains. My husband golfed at the Prince course, and said he liked it better than Pebble Beach, which he golfed several years ago (and much cheaper than Pebble!). I had a pedicure at the St. Regis spa (twice as expensive, but gorgeous spa, and I'm on vacation, right?). Then we had dinner at Makana Terrace at the St. Regis. Excellent food, gorgeous sunset and view. Lobster/corn/chorizo bisque, macadamia crusted mahi mahi, and mango crime brûlée'. Yum!

Will continue day 3 in the next post/reply.
