Vacationing or honeymooning couples on the gorgeous “Garden Isle” needn’t divide in order to conquer. As Al Green sang: “Let’s stay together!”
Halele’a Spa at the St. Regis offers ladies the “Kinara Custom Facial” which includes a regenerating, mineral-rich mask and eye treatment. For the men, “Kane’s Hot Towel Facial” is designed to address the specific needs of male skin and help reduce razor burn, irritation, and ingrown hairs. (He can handle it, especially since the soothing décor is gender-neutral and even somewhat masculine.)
Since his toe is in the water, ladies, turn up the heat at The Grand Hyatt’s Anara Spa with the “Kaua’i Ku’uipo (Lovers) Escape.” At the ginger grotto, you two will apply tropical salts and ocean clay all over each other in a private, outdoor lava rock shower for two before soaking together in a romantic, orchid-strewn tub. Side-by-side massages, custom facials, and tropical pedicures then follow to promote what Anara describes as “profound harmony.”
Whew! I recommend sharing champagne along the way.
Gentlemen — your turn. Golf Magazine ranked the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa’s Poipu Bay Golf Course, along with Princeville Makai Golf Club at The St. Regis Princeville Resort and the nearby Prince Course at Princeville Golf Club among Hawaii’s top-15. Kaua’i Lagoons Golf Club at the Kaua’i Marriott Resort on Kalapaki Beach and Puakea Golf Course— each not far from the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa and The St. Regis Princeville Resort and also in the top-15 — would surely join the other courses among a list of America’s most scenic courses with plenty of panoramic, oceanfront holes. Princeville Makai Golf Club recognizes this and therefore, each evening, allows non-golfers, male or female, to get behind the wheel of a cart for a twilight tour of the course’s most scenic spots high above the sea. And Kaua’i Lagoons Golf Club created an evening “Wine and Nine” for couples who like to sip chardonnay between chips and toast with pinot while they putt.
