Our 8-day Kauai Family Getaway. Beautiful sceneries, sunshine and wonderful amazing Grand Hyatt Resort to boot. A family getaway that leaves me dreaming about it still.
Every mention of Kauai will make me dream about that place. Typing this post up and editing the photos really transported me back to where we were one week ago. How I wish I’m still there right now. It was one of the best family vacations we had with the kids. I feel like February is the best month for us who live in Minnesota to get a little thaw out (probably major thaw out) at this beautiful Kauai!
We were there 5 years ago without the kid (the photos stuck on my old computer). We rented a car and went to different places for some adventures. This round, we did not rent a car. We spend a lot of time at the resort. This is the second time in Kauai we stayed at the Grand Hyatt Resort. Let me tell you…this resort is HUGEEE!! You can’t really tell from the photo! But boy do we love this resort! Family friendly and if you travel with kids, this resort alone seriously make them happy! Beautiful landscape, delicious food, pools, surrounded by beach, the sound of cockadoodledoo in the morning, sunny (most of the time!). What else could one ask for!
You pretty much see roosters and chickens everywhere in Kauai roaming around free! How lucky they are! Kauai is known as one of the wettest spots on earth! lots of rains! But the rains do come and go quickly. There was only one day when we were there when it rained all day long! The kids spend a lot of time at..guess where? yup…you’ve guessed it! at the pool and the beach!
And you might be wondering why there hasn’t been any photos of food yet so far! 🙂 I have none actually! I love to take photos of food, but when I eat out, I try to give myself a break from it and just enjoy the food. We had some of the best food on earth! I officially ate a whole piece of Foie Gras from this Tidepools Restaurant!!! They are not always available on the menu! Only God knows how much I love Foie Gras. We also had Polenta Crusted Hokkaido Scallops with chili caramel harissa sauce, Cold Water Lobster with Molokai sweet potato..oh my gosh!!! yeah…I was super happy!
The photos are all taken at the resort and nearby the resort
We walked about 30 minutes to a nearby beach calls Po’ipu beach. This beach is a better place for snorkeling and for children to play because they have a shallow area that is sort of hidden from the big waves. It rained when we were about to leave and so we just took uber! Gosh…I love nature, but I love technology too!
And we spotted these two huge sea turtles who have been there for days and not moving much. They were pretty much the attractions that day (and probably days before and after) on the beach 🙂
The past 8 days spent in Kauai and Grand Hyatt resort has been amazing!! I’m still dreaming about it!
Lovely photos and your kids are sooo grown up! I´ve enjoyed this post as much as i do with your recipes, even i cant get all ingredients here, at the very south Latin America! =)
Oh hello Silvia,
Oh my goodness..so happy to see your name appears here on my blog 🙂 I know, the kids have grown like crazy! How quickly time passes! Aww…thank you so much for your support. I know it’s hard to find some of the ingredients outside of Asia 🙂 I need to learn more Latin America cooking too 😀
What a paradise! I need a break too, but I cannot think of a place like that in Europe, it is too cold everywhere around us anyway at the moment. Your kids are so sweet! 🙂
