Kauai, HI (PRWEB) November 9, 2005

Ka Hale O Luina, Hawaii’s new and unique Villa retreat offers the newest travel concept that will cater to the experienced world traveler who wants an intimate, yet different, luxury vacation experience

Nobody is overly excited at the thought of spending precious vacation time in a cookie-cutter hotel suite just like the one they slept in on their last business trip. Most off-the-rack luxury hotels are still mostly well just boring.

At the same time, todays smaller, more intimate, rental villas are rapidly shaking off their traditional “hit-and-miss” vacation rental image by offering concierge, private chefs, maid service, spa facilities, sports, yoga instruction, and something much more special that travelers wont find in time shares, vacation club resorts, or high-end corporate hotels.

Secluded in the Kalaheo hills, O Luina is just such a lavish and so very private villa retreat that matches and then surpasses the services of a typical high-class hotel. Garden Isle’s newest retreat, has a different and remarkable aspiration. This small spot aims to meet the highest of guest expectations and then surpass them. O Luina promises luxury and a unique experience like no other. The art-filled villas feature tribal collections, exquisite custom designed furnishings, concierge services, and all the luxuries of a spa.

The chef’s menu creates 5-6 course feasts gleaned from a variety of cuisines (from Pan-Pacific, Hawaiian, Mediterranean to French and more ). Spa treatments are diverse and range from facials using all-organic products, fruits, vegetables and herbs, freshly picked from the garden and hand-mixed for each session, to lomi-lomi, Thai, sports or relaxing Swedish massages. Visitors experience the feel of lush Frette robes, and hand painted, silk, house-sarongs and fine linens, as well as raffia blanket or antique ikat pillows. If they choose to try their culinary skills in the gourmet, galley style kitchen , guests can pick fresh herbs from an organic garden, or let O Luina chef choose between blooming chives, varieties of basil, parsley, coconut or orange tyme, mint, and more. O Luina indulgences are designed to pamper and enfold each guest in an extraordinary Hawaiian sensory experience they will want to repeat many times over.

Instead of the common fruit and cheese welcoming basket, guests are offered fresh local fruit, such as papayas, lilkoi, bananas and guavas artfully arranged in an antique hand crafted wooden bowl and presented with traditional flower leis, blooming orchids, and homemade banana bread wrapped in thick banana leaves. A handwritten note shares the unique spirit of aloha. Lavender scented pillows engulf the senses, and a CD plays the angelic voice of Brother IZ, a local Hawaiian most beloved artist. From the first moment, the visitor is treated to an inviting ambiance that removes all cares and transports one into a different and remarkable realm where all the comforts of complete and luxury are there for the asking.

Accessories range from an oversized canvas beach bag hand painted by a local artist to locally knowledgeable guides and books on Kauai. There are coffee table books on art and decorating, fiction paperbacks to enjoy on the beach, and a wireless DSL line discreetly made available to those who must stay in touch with the outside world.

O Luina has today just a short existence. Yet already, a witty guest book features signatures from guests from the worlds of art, fashion and sports. (to view comments visit:

So far away from the ordinary and yet so comfortably and recognizably warm and intimate, not surprisingly, O Luina is attracting quite a bit of attention from those travelers and travel professionals who are always on the lookout for a new and excitingly different travel destination.
