7:31am
Enjoy a medley of fresh fruit and coconut French toast accompanied by gentle ocean breezes on the Makana Terrace. Your morning entertainment comprises breathtaking views of Hanalei Bay and Makana Mountain as the ochre sunrise slowly blankets the island. This serene start to your day is one of many complimentary perks to booking your stay at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa through our agency.

8:28am
After breakfast, head one mile up the coast for a refreshing dip in the fabled Queen's Bath. A sinkhole in the lava rock precariously placed between the island and the ocean, it makes for an unrivaled swimming hole in the summer months. Closed off from the ocean, the crystal-clear water is constantly refreshed by the lapping waves onto the lava rock, sustaining the aquatic life in the tide pool. Having beaten the human crowds, you may well have this organic swimming pool all to yourself.
10:45am
After returning to the hotel, the concierge will swiftly have a ride for you to head inland to the verdant Lawa'i Valley. Here, take the time to stop and smell the orchids at McBryde Garden. Designated the National Tropical Botanical Garden, McBryde Garden is the largest collection of native Hawaiian flora in existence. A leisurely walk amongst the towering palms and vibrant flowers is more than enough to wholeheartedly enchant.
12:24pm
For lunch, head to Scorpacciata in the town of Kapa'a. A Neapolitan pizza truck, locals are quick to assert it's the best pizza they've ever had-slices of "Fig-n-Pig" or "Lawai Mushroom" will convert you into a firm believer of this Hawaiian pizzeria as well. After a satisfying lunch, look next door for the Wailua Shave Ice truck for dessert. A medley of tropical fruits and juices atop shaved ice, this Hawaiian staple is certain to satisfy your sweet tooth.
1:36pm
Head for the hills for the opportunity to enjoy Kauai's unique mountain tubing. The island's historic Hanamaulu ditch system was carved into Mt. Waialeale over a century ago for the sake of irrigating sugar cane fields. While the sugar cane plantation is no more, the calm waters continue to flow through the canals, flumes and tunnels-allowing you to discover the island's tropical interior at a relaxing and refreshing pace.
4:44pm
Return to the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa for some relaxation before dinner. Keoniloa Bay is directly behind resort, proving to be the perfect place to lounge idyllic in a cabana for a spell. Or, take some much needed relaxation time in the Anara Spa, since you're given daily access when you book this SELECT property through our agency.

5:55pm
The concierge will arrange a ride to Luau Kalamaku-the best luau on Kauai. Enjoy a feast of authentic ono Hawaiian food, including poi, whole kalua pig, chicken long rice, lomilomi salmon and poke. After dinner and dessert comes the main show. Using traditional methods with state-of-the-art technology and an interactive stage, the show weaves a wondrous tale of adventure and epic voyages across the Pacific.
9:10pm
Return to the Grand Hyatt Kauai for the day. Before retiring for the evening, enjoy a crafted cocktail while you let the waves serenade you to a state of peace.
