A Points Honeymoon in Kauai – 3 Nights at the Westin Princeville Villas

Must read

After landing at the Lihue, Kauai airport, we hopped on the car rental shuttle to our car.  The car rental lady greeted us and said something like “I see you’ve been bidding for a car”.  I wanted to say, “Of course, I don’t want to pay over $50 a day and get ripped off like everyone else,” but I didn’t.  Since we arrived at night, we headed directly to the Westin Princeville.  It was about a 45-minute drive on the one lane road.  Unfortunately, I didn’t take many pictures of the room and the resort.  We spent 36k Starwood points for 3 full nights.  The going rate at this time was $400 plus taxes per night.  Therefore, we saved over $1,200! 

Chickens everywhere!

We really enjoyed this resort because the basic room is a one bedroom villa with a washing machine, fridge, kitchen supplies, large bathtub, and a rain-shower type shower.   Everything was very clean and people were friendly.  I am only a Starwood Gold member, so I didn’t receive any special amenities besides 500 Starpoints.  The resort has one large main pool and another smaller pool that overlooks the ocean.  There were chickens running around everywhere! We loved relaxing at the resort and going to happy hour to get some truffle fries and mai tais :).

Chilling by the pool!

Unfortunately there was a $15 resort fee for parking.  However, everyday we had the option of denying housekeeping and receiving a $10 voucher for breakfast.  We also went to the Foodland supermarket nearby to stock up on some groceries and snacks.  If you like the timeshare type kind of resort, then I would highly recommend this resort.  It was great!
