On a recent trip to Kaua’i, I was quite fortunate to make a wonderful new friend, Shere’e. Growing up on Oahu, Shere’e was proud of the islands she calls home. During our time together, she freely shared a great deal about her Hawaiian culture, including many of her favorite Hawaiian dishes.
Cruising along a quiet road on Kauai’s west side, I’m offered a glimpse into the Hawaiian countryside. Filling my view are green rolling hills, cows grazing, and papaya fields. Sparsely developed, this is what I imagine more of Hawaii used to look like before its booming tourist industry kicked in. It pleases me to see there is a quieter side to this island paradise.
High on a bluff, Westin Princeville Ocean Resort offers a breath-taking view of the sparkling blue waters of Pacific Ocean. Gentle ocean breezes, emerald colored cliffs, and panoramic views make Westin Princeville a gorgeous location for a special romantic occasion. This cliff-side oasis has become a highly sought-after Hawaiian destination for surprise engagements, oceanfront weddings, and tropical honeymoons on the North Shore of Kauai.
Close your eyes and imagine a luxurious resort on a secluded, private Hawaiian island where you’re catered to, pampered, and treated special around the clock. The Four Seasons Lana’i is where this dream becomes reality. It’s a romantic destination set in a lush, tropical paradise where resort staff takes service to new heights, crafts flavorful cuisine, and understands their guest need for privacy.
