Hawaii's Hanalei Colony Resort announces golf and spa package

Beachfront hideaway Hanalei Colony Resort, located on Kauai's lush north shore, has partnered with Princeville's famed Makai Golf Course to introduce a new golf and spa package for couples who want to enjoy both experiences during their stay. The "Tee Up & Wind Down" package allows guests to tee up for a memorable round of golf, then wind down with a relaxing spa treatment at Hanalei Day Spa located at the resort.

The Tee Up & Wind Down package includes:
Five nights in an Ocean View suite; an 18-hole round for two at Makai Golf Course with complimentary shuttle service to/from the course, if needed; a beachside couples' massage for two; and an in-room "Front Nine" golf-oriented welcome basket. The Tee Up & Wind Down package is flexible and can be customized for longer stays, an upgraded room category, or for couples who prefer one round (or multiple rounds) of golf for one person and a massage for one person--rather than golf for two and a couples' massage. (The price will be adjusted accordingly.) Price for the package ranges from $2,020 to $2,320 (plus applicable taxes) per room for two people, based on low season to high season dates. The package cannot be combined with any other discounts, other than Hanalei Colony's ongoing 7th night free program.

The Makai Golf Course, a Robert Trent Jones Jr. design, is currently ranked by Golf Digest as one of "America's 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses" and by GOLF Magazine and Golfweek as one of the top 5 public golf courses in Hawaii. In 2011, the spectacular Makai was named one of the "Top 5 Great Golf Settings in the U.S." by National Geographic Traveler.

Hanalei Colony is an intimate little resort situated on a long curve of uncrowded beach near the end of the road on Kauai's north shore. Situated on five beachfront acres, the resort's 48 units are all two-bedroom suites with fully equipped kitchens and private lanais (patios), all with sweeping views of Hanalei Bay or Kauai's magnificent north shore mountains. Described as "unspoiled and unplugged," the resort prides itself on its secluded location set amidst astounding natural beauty. In keeping with its restful ambiance, Hanalei Colony's units do not have televisions, stereos, or phones.

Hanalei Colony does not charge a "resort fee," and resort amenities include free parking, guest barbecue and picnic areas, a guest laundromat, twice-weekly maid service, and a newly renovated and expanded swimming pool facility with a whirlpool spa. Guests are invited to enjoy a weekly complimentary continental breakfast and afternoon mai tai party. Complimentary WiFi is available in all units, and a complimentary guest shuttle is offered to nearby beaches and Hanalei Town, as well as the Makai Golf Course for guests who are enjoying the Tee Up & Wind Down package. The oceanfront Mediterranean Gourmet restaurant is open daily from lunch through dinner and features the "Hanalei by the Sea Luau" every Tuesday night. The cozy Napali Coffee House & Art Gallery offers morning coffee drinks, smoothies, and pastries as well as mid-day snacks to go. A variety of beauty and wellness treatments, including therapeutic massage, are offered on-property at Hanalei Day Spa.

Hanalei Colony is located on Kauai's north shore, across seven one-lane bridges and just past famed Lumahai Beach. The resort is independently owned and managed. For reservations or more information on the Tee Up & Wind Down package, call toll-free 1-800-628-3004.
