Hawaii Vacation News Roundup for July 16th

  • The Sheraton Kauai Resort has added a third night to its Surf to Sunset Luau for a limited time.  This luau is Kauai’s only oceanfront luau.  They regularly offer the event on Mondays and Fridays starting at 6:00pm.  Now they will be adding on Wednesdays through September 12th per the Garden Island.  If you are looking for a good luau in Kauai, I’d certainly consider this one.  Sometimes luau food may seem foreign to your palate, so the upside of this luau is that they offer the traditional foods as well as modern Hawaiian cuisine.  They had me at mango passion cheesecake and chocolate macadamia nut torte.  🙂

 

  • Want to learn about all the top golf courses in Kauai in a matter of minutes?  This Inside Bay Area article provides an excellent overview of Kauai’s golf courses. 

 

  • Kauai’s famous Coco Palms Resort reopening has been delayed due to Planning Commission’s decision to deny permits for a fitness center, per the Star Bulletin.  The resort was due to reopen next summer with 200 luxury condo units, 104 hotel units, restaurants, and shops.

 

  • And finally, please pardon this sort of but not really Hawaii vacation related news.  You already knew that the new Indiana Jones movie is currently being filmed on the Hilo side of the Big Island.  Though I’m sure that many millions of dollars are being invested in the blockbuster film, there is one fact I find amazing  What is that fact, you ask?  There are reports that Harrison Ford fits into the same Indiana Jones trousers that he wore 18 years ago.  Wow!  I wish I could wear the same trousers I wore that long ago.  Kudos to Harrison Ford for that and for continuing to do his own stunts.
