Just a 45 minute drive from Lihue Airport, is truly an idyllic tropical paradise with majestic mountains, wide open pasture lands, quaint villages and the beautiful Hanalei Bay and Valley.
Here you will discover some of the most stunning scenery on the planet. There's the Na Pali Coast , whose velvet cliffs rise 4,000 ft above the ocean and the endless waterfalls and lush valleys. It's no wonder this region was the setting for the movie South Pacific.
This is considered the wetter part of the island, but hey, that's the price you pay for the lush, tropical paradise that surrounds you...
You've got to visit Hanalei Bay, this fairly remote, two-mile crescent-shaped beach is where the emerald mountains meet the sparkling sea and was selected No. 1 "Dr. Beach" Stephen P. Leatherman's 2009 list of top 10 beaches in the USA.
Hanalei beat out other shores stretching from San Diego to Cape Cod.
"The sheer beauty of Hanalei Bay is breathtaking," said Leatherman, director of Florida International University's Laboratory for Coastal Research. "It's really an idyllic setting."
Hanalei features postcard views from every angle and is untouched by the feverish development that has transformed the coastlines of other islands. It's cherished by both locals and tourists as the perfect spot to swim, surf, snorkel or simply escape and unwind.

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
