It is easy to feel romance on Kauai. Maybe it happens when you share secluded Kauai beaches with someone you love, or look towards the magnificent mountains of the Na Pali Coast to a fragrant backdrop of tropical flowers. For some the feeling starts when stepping out on the lanai of a Kauai vacation rental from our Romance Collection to a brilliant Hawaii rainbow above and the beautiful ocean vistas beyond. Other times it can be the expression of Aloha when draped with a Plumeria lei from someone close. If you have been to Kauai before, we invite you to share your favorite Kauai places of the heart with us in today’s post.
Six Kauai Places That Inspire Romance
1. Begin the day with a magnificent Kauai sunrise.
You do not have to go far for the best view when you book an ocean view Kauai condo or oceanfront Kauai vacation home. Have breakfast on your lanai and see the sparkling Pacific waiting for you. Share the morning with the one you love for the best day in paradise. Follow our Kauai deals for special offers on choice Kauai vacation rentals and plan a romantic island escape.
2. Take a scenic Kauai drive to the Kalalau Valley overlook.
After the crowds leave drive up country past Waimea Canyon to the last overlook at Kokee. Be one of only a handful to gaze at the Kalalau Valley as it gently slopes to the ocean. Be prepared for an Aha moment and breathe in the serenity of this ancient Hawaiian landmark. If you are feeling more adventurous, take your partner on a short hike next to the rim on the Pihea Trail.
3. Walk on your favorite Kauai beaches.
Take your pick from the long stretch of sand at Hanalei Bay, to the secluded end of Anini Beach and the spectacular Mahaulepu. These are just a few of the many Kauai beaches to choose from. Plan your Kauai vacation off season and enjoy placing your footprints in the sand with fewer crowds and more places to call your own.
4. Relax with a day spent at famous Hawaii spas.
Pamper yourself with a stay at Kukui`ula® Club Cottages and enjoy access to one of the top spas in the world. The Spa at Kukui`ula offers relaxation in your private sanctuary for two surrounded by a garden courtyard, outdoor shower and soaking tub. A daily guest pass is also offered at the Anara Spa at the Grand Hyatt Kauai with 45,000 square feet of gardens, waterfalls and pools.
5. Experience the ocean from a Holo Holo Charter.
Book a Kauai boat tour and enjoy the Kauai sunset and seasonal Hawaii whale watching. A gourmet dinner is included and views you will always remember of the famous Na Pali Coast that few have the opportunity to see.
6. Feast on fine Kauai dining and a romantic dinner for two at the end of your day.
Frequent Hale Aina award winner Red Salt at the Koa Kea Hotel offers a selection of entrees from Prime Wagyu New York Steak with red salt fries and a trio of dipping sauces, to uniquely prepared island fish delights. Paul is the perfect host and Michael will mix a favorite drink to your exact specifications.
