honeymoon part deux: kauai.

After staying in Maui for four nights, we went to Kauai for four nights. After mourning our departure from the Four Seasons (yes, it's that amazing), we quickly realized how equally amazing the Grand Hyatt in Kauai was going to be. The place has a lazy river and water slide for heavens sake! We didn't hole up in the hotel the entire time like we did in Maui... in Kauai we ventured out each day because it was just too beautiful not too. Here are just a few photos for your viewing pleasure.

{We drove through the Kauai canyons one afternoon and took in the breathtaking views}

{Spouting Horn, a local legend. The water crashing against the rock sounds like a dragon}

{Enjoying some nightly entertainment at our hotel}

{The best decision of our honeymoon was taking a helicopter tour of the island. We landed at the Jurassic Park waterfall. I can't eloquently put into words what a beautiful site it was.}

{Our ride.}

{Just one of the hundreads of stunning views we saw from the copter}

{No picture will ever do Hawaiian water justice... it's the most gorgeous water I've ever seen.}

We truly feel like we got two honeymoons. Maui was all about relaxing and enjoying the pampering that the Four Seasons provides while Kauai was adventure, fast paced, and surrounding ourselves with the locals. We are so lucky to have experienced this trip!

No honeymoon recap (at least for me) would be complete without talking about the food.
Stay tuned!
xoxo

I loved the helicopter ride when I went there. =) Our pilot had diamonds embedded in his teeth.

I love that you split your time up and picked your islands appropriately: one for relaxation and one for adventure. Great idea! I'm soaking up everything I can about Hawaii because I want to go there on my honeymoon someday too!
