With tranquil rivers and calm ocean bays, there are some great places to go stand-up paddleboarding in Kauai. The Wailua River is an epic adventure. Kalapaki Beach is a good place to learn to SUP in Kauai. Hanalei Bay is also good in summer.
Halekulani means “house befitting heaven” in Hawaiian. We found the elegant Halekulani in Holonulu to be quite heavenly with Zen-like rooms and superior service.
By the beach at Manele Bay? At the French country-style mountain Lodge at Koele? The best Four Seasons resort Lanai is a matter of personal preference.
