Kauai - April 2012

In April of 2012 our family of four (two adults, two kids -- ages 7 and 9) spent two weeks in Kauai.  We had a fantastic visit, and I feel so fortunate that we were able to spend time in such a beautiful place!  


This trip was a bit of a “bonus” for us, because we were able to cash in air, train, hotel and credit card miles/points that we have been accumulating for the past 8 years -- so it was basically “free”, aside from the paid activities that we chose to do, and food. . . .  
We based ourselves for the first week in the south at the Grand Hyatt, and our second week in the north at the St. Regis.  In my research, I, like many, sought for a good comparison between these two hotels, and I now understand why it is so hard to choose between them.  They cannot be compared because while both places offer a fantastic experience, they are just totally different!  In short -- I was really happy to split my stay between the two locations, and I’m glad that I spent our first week where it was sunny (it gave me my “fix”, having come from a New England winter!), followed by a second week of pure relaxation in an idyllic (if sometimes damp and gray) locale. . .
