Hanalei Colony On Kauai Specializes In Romance

New 2004 Wedding And Romance Packages

By

Hanalei Colony Resort, a beachfront hideaway on Kauai's lush north shore, has long been a favorite choice for couples seeking a romantic getaway. The small, intimate property is nestled on a long curve of golden beach against a backdrop of magnificent mountains near the end of the road in Ha'ena, Kauai's remote northernmost town.

For couples wanting to "tie the knot" in this beautiful setting, the resort offers the services of a full-time wedding coordinator and a variety of wedding packages and amenities. Hanalei Colony has introduced new wedding packages for 2004, as well as a Honeymoon Hideaway package for couples celebrating honeymoons, anniversaries or other romantic occasions.

Hanalei Colony's "Weddings with Aloha" program is designed to suit the needs of all couples by offering a wide range of wedding services and amenities, from coordination of a simple beachfront ceremony for two to a lavish affair with all the trimmings. "Weddings with Aloha" offers five pre-set wedding ceremony packages, ranging from the simple "Intimate Kauai Wedding," priced at $425, to the more elaborate "Romantic Kauai Wedding," priced at $1,895.

In addition to the packages, there is a large selection of "a la carte" options that are available to tailor each wedding to suit the couple's personal wishes, including such unique options as a hula dancer, fire knife dancer, tropical flower tiki torches, or a romantic, privately-catered dinner for two on the beach.

Hanalei Colony contracts with a variety of professional wedding support services on the island, including musicians, photographers, florists, caterers, limousines and others to meet every couple's needs. In addition to the wedding ceremony, receptions can also be arranged, from an intimate dinner for two to a fully catered reception for friends and family in Hanalei Colony's pool pavilion, beach garden or oceanfront Makana Room.

Complete details on the resort's wedding packages, reception sites, and optional amenities are available online at www.wedding-in-kauai.com. Or contact Hanalei Colony for a wedding brochure at 1-800-628-3004 or weddings-events@hcr.com.

For honeymoons, anniversaries or other romantic getaways, Hanalei Colony offers a 2004 Honeymoon Hideaway Package that includes five or seven nights accommodations in a two-bedroom oceanview or premium oceanfront condo, a convertible rental car, a two-hour guided tour of tropical Limahuli Garden, an in-room or beachfront his & her massage, and a romantic gift on arrival.

The Honeymoon Hideaway five-night package price is $1,470 per couple for an oceanview unit or $1,945 for a premium oceanfront unit during low season; $1,568 for ocean view or $2,120 for a premium oceanfront unit during high season. The seven-night Honeymoon Hideaway package price is $1,680 per couple for an oceanview unit or $2,250 for a premium oceanfront unit during low season; $1,800 for an oceanview or $2,460 for a premium oceanfront unit during high season.

The Honeymoon Hideaway package prices include tax and are based on double occupancy. Additional car and room nights can be added at a discounted rate. The package is valid for travel through December 19, 2004 and cannot be combined with any other discount offer.

Situated on five beachfront acres, Hanalei Colony offers 48 low-rise two-bedroom condominium units with fully equipped kitchens and private lanais (patios), all with sweeping views of Hanalei Bay or lush green mountains. Described as "unspoiled and unplugged," the resort prides itself on its remote location and peaceful, romantic ambiance. Its units do not have televisions, stereos, or phones, and there is nothing to distract guests from enjoying long walks on the beach, leisurely mornings, tropical sunsets, and each other.

Hanalei Colony amenities include a swimming pool, jacuzzi spa, barbecue and picnic areas, a guest laundromat, and twice-weekly maid service. Guests are invited to a weekly complimentary continental breakfast and an afternoon mai tai party in the resort's "Makana Room." The resort offers a variety of wellness activities, including yoga sessions, therapeutic massage services and a day spa. In addition, Hanalei Colony hosts a weekly luau produced by the legendary north shore restaurant, Tahiti Nui.

Hanalei Colony is independently owned and managed. For reservations or information, call toll-free from Hawaii, the U.S. mainland and Canada, 1-800-628-3004. Visit the hotel's website at www.hcr.com or email aloha@hcr.com.
