Content: Arrived at the Lihue airport, picked up our luggage and hopped into a shuttle to pick up our rental car for the trip. Since Kauai is very spread out, a car is a must. You can rearrange a car online prior or book it while you’re there.

Content: We checked in early to the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa, which is about a 20 minute drive from the airport. This hotel is gorgeous!! From the moment you drive in, it’s very green and picturesque, the entire hotel is paradise. It’s a 5 star hotel resort, so I wouldn’t expect anything less.

Content: After getting settled in, we decided to take a chill day, and enjoy the resort’s amenities. We spent our day relaxing at their pool and beach. What’s neat about this resort is they offer guests with 3 large pools including a lazy river with a water slide, a large activities pool with basketball and volleyball nets, and another section for an adults only pool. They also have jacuzzis, a saltwater lagoon area, and easy access to the beach as well!

Content: We booked a few fun tours during this trip through a company called Best Kauai Tours. This company is like a one-stop-shop for the best Kauai tours on the island. On our second day, we did a helicopter tour. I have always wanted to do one and I couldn’t be more excited to do it in Kauai! The helicopter tour was about 55 minutes long and during that time, we explored and saw the Na Pali Coast, Waimea Canyon, Wailua Falls, Mount Waialeale, while learning about the legends and history of the island. Totally recommend this tour if you want to explore the island from above!

If you’re feeling adventurous again, Ziplining is a must! I loved our tour guides too; very informative and funny! This particular zip-line tour was an 8-line course and was approximately 3.5 hours with breathtaking background!

Napali Catamaran

Content: One of the most suggested tours by locals and tourists alike is to sail through Kauai’s beautiful Na Pali Coast. Though we didn’t get to do this, any activity on the way is a MUST! And if you’re looking to knock out snorkeling and watching the sunset, you might as well conquer it all on a boat tour!
