Hollywood buffs take note. The St. Regis Princeville Resort is debuting an exclusive day tour, showing off filming locations of several popular films. Stops include sites from Jurassic Park, Hook, South Pacific, Avatar and The Descendants—which was partly filmed on property.
Angela Tillson, one of the island’s film location managers (whose work includes Jurassic Park: The Lost World and The Descendants), will guide guests on an in-depth and interactive private tour. The tour begins with stops at filming locations from South Pacific and Jurassic Park. Guests will then visit Kipu Ranch, where they will embark on a private ATV tour, visiting the historic landscape and famous movie locations featured in Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, On Stranger Tides and The Descendants. The experience will culminate with a private helicopter charter with Island Helicopters to Manawaiopuna Falls, better known as “Jurassic Falls,” a privately owned waterfall that can only be reached by helicopter and is otherwise inaccessible to the public.
As part of the experience, guests will also have the opportunity to stay in The St. Regis Princeville Resort’s Presidential Suite, which was prominently featured in the film The Descendants.
Set on the cliffs of Kauai’s North Shore, the The St. Regis Princeville Resort has views of both Hanalei Bay and Mt. Makana, four dining venues, the 10,000-square-foot Halele’a Spa, a premiere golf course and an infinity pool, among other outstanding amenities.
