In early May the Hanalei Colony Resort had the pleasure of hosting several travel writers from around the country. Here on a cultural press trip, the Resort was one of their stops along the majestic north shore.
They enjoyed networking by our recently renovated pool and dined on a sumptuous dinner at The Mediterranean Gourmet. The writers who joined us represented several publications that include:
AFAR - a magazine of world travel & cultural perspectives. Writer: Constance "Connie" Hale
Journal & Topics Newspapers - dating back to 1930, this publication brings its readers the best in community newspaper reporting including local news, travel, lifestyle, business and more. Writer: Todd Wessell

It's always fun to introduce the travel writers to the magnificent Garden Island of Kauai. We've already heard from a couple of them who wrote just to thank us for the great time they had at the Resort. Mahalo to them for joining us and sharing the beauty of Hanalei Colony and our Kaui resort accommodations.
