Our trip to Kauai did not go very well, between a big week-long storm, brief illness, road/hiking trail closings, and boat cancellations. Because we had money left over from all of the plan cancellations, my husband and I decided to splurge and get massages on our last day. It was absolutely wonderful. Neither of us had ever gotten massages before, but it was so incredibly relaxing and just exactly what we needed. I was massaged by Leslee/Manima, and my husband by another masseuse (whose name unfortunately we can't remember, sorry!) and we both left much happier than when we came.
We went to the Kauai athletic club location, which worked perfectly because we checked out of our hotel at 11 am, but our flight didn't leave until 8:30 pm, so we spent the morning at the beach, then went to the club, had a massage, then spent much of the afternoon in the jacuzzi/pool, showered in the locker rooms, and arrived fresh and relaxed at the airport! So although it isn't quite as romantic as the river location, it is cheaper and served our needs since we had time to kill and needed showers (the price of the massage came with a 1 day membership to the club), and it's still very pretty and relaxing. I really can't imagine a better way to end our trip!
