Monday, May 13th, 2013

If you’ve made the decision to visit the Garden Isle for your romantic escape, you probably already know that the breathtaking isle is often referred to as the best when it comes to a tranquil, romantic setting filled with spectacular scenic wonders. From awe-inspiring sunsets to cascading falls, translucent freshwater pools, picturesque beaches and emerald colored-mountains that dip dramatically down to turquoise waters, the scenery is hard to beat.

When it comes time to choose the idyllic place to stay, there is no doubt you’ll want accommodations that meet or exceed the best of what the island has to offer for the ultimate Kauai romantic getaway, including a blend of the ultimate in relaxation as well as romantic activities and more thrilling adventures.

We believe Hideaway Cove is the ideal answer for honeymooners, those who are celebrating an anniversary, or any type of romantic holiday – here is a look at just four of the reasons why.

Looking for the best beach to view the most gorgeous sunsets on the island? Do you desire an intimate, upscale dining experience? Want to know where the best tours or activities can be found? Our concierge services will make recommendations based on your needs and even make the reservations for you so that you can spend your time enjoying each other’s company and your ideal Kauai romantic getaway.

Private Chef

Have you ever fantasized about having a private chef? You can make that dream come true at Hideaway Cove – what better time to utilize this incredible amenity than on a Kauai romantic getaway? Concierge Services will make all the arrangements while you indulge in Hawaiian-inspired cuisine featuring fresh, local ingredients without having to leave the comfort of your home away from home.

In-room massage

A couples’ massage is an especially enjoyable way to spend time relaxing together, allowing your cares to melt away in the presence of each other’s company. If you don’t want to head out to a spa, an in-room massage is another option you can choose at Hideaway Cove. A side-by-side massage is a wonderfully romantic experience.

Luxurious rooms

Of course, your ultimate Poipu Beach romantic vacation must include a luxurious room to come back to after a day of enjoying what the island has to offer. Elegant furnishings here are top of the line including four-poster carved pineapple, canopy and sleigh beds with high thread count Egyptian cotton linens. Baths offer Jacuzzi tubs and rainfall showers, just right for two.

Enjoy the endless sunshine by dining outdoors in your covered lanai, or cuddle up together indoors and enjoy the entertainment center featuring a large cable television, cable radio, CD player and DVD player.

We think you’ll agree that Hideaway Cove is the best choice for a romantic getaway on the Garden Isle.

What better way to show the Jacuzzi tub in our Beachcomber Studio than a video that shows it bubbling away?  Kind of makes you want to jump right in.  Also new is the very large HDTV and entertainment center.  Same cozy comfort love seat, out door dining and stainless steel barbecue with side burner.  Check it out by clicking here.



New Poipu Beach Fine Dining

Monday, May 13th, 2013

The Poipu Beach area, where Hideaway Cove is located, has always had a large concentration of restaurants.  Several years ago I would mention to potential guests that there were 10 restaurants within a mile of our property.  Although not all of the new locations are within a mile, they’re probably within two miles.  That’s because the majority of them are in the new Kukuiula Village Shopping Center.  Here’s a quick run down of what’s new on the fine dining front.


Kauai RestaurantJosselin Tapas Bar and Grill-808-742-7117.  Owned and operated by Jean Marie Josselin of Pacific Cafe fame, this is a fun, well decorated restaurant with a full bar.  Don’t miss the sangria, which is served on a cart that is wheeled to your table.

Merriman’s Fishhouse- 808-742-8385.  Merrimans became pretty famous on the Big Island as one of the first pioneers of the farm to table movement in the Hawaiian Islands.  Peter Merriman located his restaurant literally out in the middle of no where and it required a 45 minute drive from Kona to get there.  His Kauai location has struggled, changing from the original steakhouse (with locally sourced beef, of course) to the present fish house.  The decor is plantation style, you have any ocean view and the food is fabulous.  The only caveat is that the prices are high, even by Kauai standards.  We have foodie friends who come to Kauai twice a year and rave about their experience there.  See Casual Dining for the downstairs cafe.

Tortilla Republic Grill-808-742-8884.  Located upstairs from the Margarita Bar and open only for dinner.  This is not your traditional Mexican restaurant, with tacos, tamales, rice and beans.  The chef trained in New York and brought back with her a variety of recipes that are sure to delight anyone who likes good food.  Some of these tables also have ocean views.  Be sure and try one (or more) of the margaritas.
