Kauai Romantic Escapes

1b12d0b60a8e268b8c2ded350c275f0528ce7823 Travel Age West writes about how wonderful the Hanalei Colony Resort is. "Another Kauai accommodation offering guests the chance to help the environment is Hanalei Colony Resort, which offers a Beach and Botany package. During their stay at the north shore property, clients work at least two daily four-hour volunteer sessions per person at the nearby Limahuli Garden and Preserve, the site of a rainforest, ancient lava-rock terraces, thriving native plant species and a plantation-era garden. Making sure that their vacation isn’t all work and no play, the package also provides participants with a picnic lunch, a three-hour kayak tour, a one-hour massage, an annual NTBG membership and garden-oriented arrival gifts." "Our secluded location and the unspoiled natural beauty of Kauai’s north shore are the foundation of Hanalei Colony’s appeal to visitors," said Hanalei Colony Resort general manager Laura Richards. "'We have always encouraged our guests to enjoy and explore this incredible destination. Now, we are going a step further by offering them the opportunity to help us preserve our environment.'"
