Guess the Resort: East Meets West Paradise

Guess the Resort: East Meets West Paradise

.

This Resort Could be Dubbed an East Meets West Paradise. While many hotels and resorts, even luxury resorts, have made post-pandemic changes that tend to diminish the guest experience, in our view this resort is even better post-pandemic.

We're here during the busy spring break season, the resort is fully booked, yet the pools, beach and activities don't seem crowded. We arrived before 2pm, and the resort managed to have our room ready early, which we appreciated. It was a lovely upgraded room with an ocean view from inside the room:

Of course the view was even better from the private balcony:

While many resorts these days have stopped putting fresh flowers in rooms, we loved that there were fresh orchids in three different locations in the room, by the bar, inside the bathroom, and on the work desk.

Orchids were also on our table at breakfast, where we enjoyed another beautiful ocean view:

Breakfast offers delightful East-West choices, both decadent and healthy, from a Rock Shrimp Bowl with a fried egg, white rice and mild coconut curry to a multigrain bowl of farro, bulgur, quinoa, kale and pumpkin seeds with poached egg and avocado to an Ahi Benedict with togorashi, hollandaise and lemon curd with poached eggs, to coconut caramelized french toast and more.

In addition to a family friendly pool and adult pool, the beach is a short walk away. We were fortunate enough to see scores of dolphins on our second morning.

Our young teen was happier here than at the Grand Hyatt Kauai, thanks to the chance to try zip lining a short drive from the resort, and pool tables at the resort; the zip line is new since our prior visit, having opened in late 2019.

Dinner likewise offers both Eastern and Western options; a Japanese restaurant offers sushi and both traditional as well as modern Japanese dishes, with the miso black cod remaining among our favorite:

Back in our room, we enjoyed a delicious chocolate cake with berries in honor of our anniversary, along with a chilled white wine (which we prefer over sparkling wine or champagne).

I haven’t stayed – my children are 4 and 8, so I prefer places with larger pools and an ocean that is less of a walk from the resort. Our 2bdrm villa in Como Parrot Cay is the best for us, so far.
