Tips for the Ultimate Relaxation Vacation on the Garden Isle
Some people come to Hawaii for adventure – diving deep in the sea, riding big waves, climbing the steep, volcanic peaks. Others come to just get away from it all, to leave behind the stresses of a daily work environment and let your worries melt way with the tropical tradewinds as you fall asleep in the shade of a palm tree on a golden sand beach listening the gentle waves lapping at the shoreline.
Here are some tips for those who want to relax on their Kauai vacation and pamper themselves with all the pleasures of a tropical dream vacation. To arrange for these activities and services, please feel free to give us a call at Bali Hai (808-826-8000). We offer the highest level of personalized Concierge Services to help you plan your Kauai vacation activities.
Massage: There are many styles of massage offered on Kauai in many different settings from poolside to oceanside to a private massage at your vacation rental. For even more pampering consider a facial, manicure and pedicure.
Catering: If you don’t feel like cooking or even dining out then you can have some exceptional foods delivered right to your vacation rental. Another option is to have a private chef or assistant chef show up for your party or gathering and cook up the gourmet meal of your choice with the freshest of Kauai’s local ingredients. You may even schedule a catered beach picnic!
Flying above Kauai in a helicopter provides an exhilarating thrill as you take in the spectacular views from the Na Pali Coast to Waimea Canyon and the north shore beaches. Though a full tour of the island only takes about one hour, you will remember it forever.
Personal Trainer: Sometimes a bit of gentle exercise, stretching, yoga, or other physical activity can really make you feel great and help you melt away the stress of your working life back home. Arrange for a personal trainer to visit your accommodations and lead you in yoga, pilates or the workout of your choice. Another option is to visit a local pilates or yoga studio to meet some of the locals and enjoy activities that are both physically and mentally rejuvenating.
See Live Music: Many venues around Kauai offer live music at night, often accompanied by beautiful hula dancing to the sweet melodies of Hawaiian music. Check local listings to see who is playing where, and take in some local culture and music that will put you in the mood of the Islands. Attending a traditional Hawaiian luau offers both food and entertainment, or arrange for a private luau including dancers, drummers and even fire dancers!
Historic Walking Tours: History buffs will enjoy relaxing walking tours of different Kauai areas to learn more about the architecture and culture from ancient Hawaii through the plantation era. In Hanapepe town a self-guided walking tour includes 14 different plaques including information and photography mounted on various historic buildings. The self-guided Koloa Heritage Trail visits many historic sites throughout the Koloa district with commemorative plaques that help you learn about the region’s rich history.
Relax on the Beach: The ultimate Kauai activity is just finding a nice place on any one of the island’s beautiful beaches and dozing off beneath a palm tree to the sounds of the surf! Wake up and take a dip in the turquoise waters, then back to the beach towel for more relaxation!
