At Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas, the natural setting alone gives visitors a sense of well-being. Lately, however, the north shore Kauai resort has upgraded the guest experience so that clients come away feeling even healthier and happier.
The resort has updated its fitness studio with new treadmills, strength machines, free weights and mats. Guests can use the gym, which features dry and steam saunas, around the clock.
Additionally, Westin Princeville has revised its food and beverage offerings to include more superfoods, with an emphasis on fruits, vegetables, grains and proteins. Its new health-conscious kids’ menu serves the likes of peanut butter and banana sandwiches on whole-wheat bread, grilled chicken with pasta and fruit kebabs with Greek yogurt.
Three times per week, resort guests can experience Kundalini yoga, which promotes mindful fitness and relaxation. The new, oceanview classes cost $18 per person.
Meanwhile, to ensure the well-being of its surroundings, Westin Princeville has installed a cogeneration plant, which captures and uses normally wasted heat and produces 90 percent of the property’s electricity.
All of these recent improvements give travel agents new ways to sell the luxurious 346-villa property to their clients, according to Denise Wardlow, general manager for Westin Princeville.
“Our one-bedroom villas, which comprise half of our room inventory, offer suite-like accommodations at a rate typically lower than suites elsewhere, making them perfect for families and special occasions such as honeymoons and anniversaries,” Wardlow said. “Everything we do at Westin Princeville is designed for our guests to be well in their travels.”
Clients interested in upgrades can take advantage of the resort’s current promotion, Endless Escape. Nightly rates for the package, which comes with daily breakfast for two, start at $320.
