The gateway to all of Kauai's wonders, Lihue is where you'll likely arrive first, via plane or cruise ship.
Lihue is the county seat and it offers much in the way of culture -- Hawaiian music and hula performances and other fun heritage festivals. The Kauai Museum plays a role in showcasing art and island history. Grove Farm Homestead, the former home of George N. Wilcox and his descendents, is today a museum that provides visitors with a look at how plantation owners and workers lived more than a century ago. The Grove Farm was one of the most successful sugar plantations and Kilohana, Gaylord Wilcox's former home, houses distinctive shops and an open-air restaurant.
Adjacent Kalapaki and Nawiliwili highlights include the Alekoko (Menehune) Fishpond, Kukui Grove Shopping Center, and Kalapaki Beach. The Alekoko Fishpond lies along Huleia Stream, which drains into Nawiliwili Bay. Kayak upstream for an Indiana Jones adventure (literally, because this is where Indy swung on a vine, dropped into the stream, and swam to a sea plane to escape his enemies). Championship golf courses, great restaurants, and a beach that is paradise for surfing, swimming, and boogie boarding are all available in Lihue.

Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the video for our take on this important topic.
We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!Leonore & Mike Rumford
