2013 was a huge travel year for us! We visited eleven countries and over 30 cities. One of our favourite destinations by far was Kauai, Hawaii. We had initially considered Bora Bora but I am so happy we ended up going to Kauai instead. It is such a beautiful place and the people there were so friendly. We stayed at the Ko’a Kea Hotel & Resort, at Po’ipu Beach. My favourite part of this hotel were the lovely breakfast mini muffins (if I am honest they were more like mini cupcakes) served with whipped cinnamon butter.
Picking an island on Hawaii can be very difficult if you can only visit one. While I have only been to two others – Maui and Big Island – I can confidently say that Kauai was my favourite. Maui is excellent for surfing and rougher beaches. Big Island is perfect for young families however I feel Kauai is a perfect honeymoon destination. It has enough things to do if you aren’t the sort that likes to lie around and crisp yet it has a serenity that everyone seeks on a vacation.
