Another new one from my helicopter charter – wow this coast is awesome!
So, we didn’t have a room in Kauai for the last two days of this portion of our trip (which have now turned into 4 days) – we figured we would just wing it. Well, winging it worked out well, we ended up at an amazing resort – the Westin Princeville / Starwood for just $110 a night for a studio with kitchen and washer and dryer. We are about as close to the Na Pali Coast as you can get without camping – this is a really beautiful area! The resort itself is also very nice.
So, how did we get such a deal? By naming our own price on Priceline. They break the island down to a few different areas – Princeville is one of them. The top hotel type in this area on Priceline is 3 and a half star – although this place should be 4. I did a bit of research, and so far, anyone who entered 3 and a half star, Princeville area is getting this resort, usually for about $110 to $115 per night.
Of course, there are no guarantees on the actual hotel with Priceline, and as the busy Winter season hits around December 15th, this property might drop off the list, or might require a higher bid, but it is worth a try, especially for a property of this quality. And, to have a kitchen, and washer / dryer is a big bonus. And, no resort fee, and free wifi in room!
