To Spa or Not to Spa

To Spa or Not to Spa

New Hawaii retreat bridges a gap between his and her vacation dreams combining the great outdoors with the comforts and luxuries of a spa.

Kauai, HI (PRWEB) November 1, 2005

New Hawaii retreat bridges a gap between his and her vacation dreams combining the great outdoors with the comforts and luxuries of a spa.

He likes rugged outdoors, she prefers a luxurious spa.

There are vacation options today that bridge the gap of completely opposite holiday dreams. Organic style villas of "O Luina", outfitted with all the amenities, fine art and antiques, are designed for those who want to experience the great outdoors in style and comfort

A trend toward "soft adventure" travel, allows the great open-air experience combined with the luxuries of the most upscale accommodations. Rather than sleeping on hard ground following a day of kayaking beautifully rugged Na Pali coast, why not soak in an enormous crushed stone tub for two, with a view of Kauai's South shore, followed by side-by side massage in the privacy of the beautiful villa? Your adventure seamlessly becomes into a complete spa experience. A chef might stop by and prepare a gourmet feast you can indulge in right there on your lanai, in your bathrobe. No other tourists, eager spa goers, no screaming children.

Great Outdoors for Him:

Up country Kauai is a place of tranquility and extraordinary natural elegance possessed of spectacular mountain and ocean views. Abundant flora and fauna, rare native plants, birds, and butterflies. Rainbows are magnificent, mornings laced with birdsong while only the notes of cricket fill the starry nights.

While greeting the morning in an outdoor hot-rain shower, high above the green hills and the azure shades of the Pacific, a pueo (native Hawaiian owl ) might glide by. Even a shy blue dragonfly might make an appearance.

Great Outdoors -- Her Way:

The best part is: here, natural wonders come along with a private, full spa service, a chef, a concierge... A short, scenic drive and a world away from the hustle and bustle of the resorts and hotels is the small town of Kalaheo where quaint, country restaurants abound. Further down the road are the resort towns of Koloa and Poipu, offering spectacular beaches, fine dining, activities and shopping.

She can live with that.
