At the Grand Hyatt Kauai, the make-believe wonders of architecture marry seemlesssly with those of mother nature to create the kind of paradise depicted in Condé Nast and other travel mags. But this story is no hype, and that's why so many people come to get married here, from the elopers to a full-on bash. Lovers can't get enough. After all, what is marriage but the promise of making the real world a paradise?
Between the resorts all-over- the-place swimming pool with caves and water slides is a large saltwater lagoon with a sandy bottom and a shore that is a gardenscape with bridges and hammocks. From there, the newlyweds can take off across a surfing beach and walk coastal bluffs that are home to seabirds. Wander further up the chalky coast lined with ironwoods and watch the sun go down. All the planning and rose petals and champagne toasts are memories. Life together begins. Good luck.
