During his visit to Kauai, travel writer, Lance Richardson's adventures included a stay at the Hanalei Colony Resort. Upon his return to Australia he wrote about his experience and both The Sydney Morning Herald and Melbourne's The Saturday Age published his story entitled "Wild on the island."
Under his "Fast Facts", Lance recommends a stay at the Hanalei Colony Resort. "Very spacious and private, it's a good base for the Kalalau Trail from nearby Haena."
Lance's Kauai beach resort review highlights Kauai as a place "more intriguing than the brochures would have you believe." From his spectactular introduction to the island via helicopter to his hike along the breathtaking Kalalau Trail, the author experienced the Garden Island from the north shore to the south.
