Vegan Wellness Getaway in Hawaii
This passport is no longer available
Vegan chef Matthew Kenney’s journey has more twists and turns than a Hollywood blockbuster. The Maine native grew up hunting and fishing along the coast before later switching to veganism, and opened a stable of restaurants in New York City, before ultimately turning his attention to plant-based cuisine. Today, the 52-year-old chef is planning week-long getaways in May, September, and October this year that will focus on whole-body wellness.
Nestled among the radiant rainforests of Kauai, the Club at Kukui`ula will serve as the home base for each event. The onsite, plantation-style cottages feature two master suites, outdoor garden showers, a gourmet kitchen, a screened-in lanai, a fire pit, and a guest cottage. During the week, they can take part in sunrise yoga and meditation, guided hikes, surf outings, Hula-dance classes, and spa sessions. During the Vegan Wellness Getaway in Hawaii, attendees will also harvest fresh produce from the Kukui’ula garden; the bounty will be used to create a plant-based, farm-to-table meal. Without a doubt, Kenney has found his centre — and his wellness retreats are sure to help attendees do the same. Pricing is based on single (US$8,500, S$11,936) or shared cottages (US$7,200, S$10,110).
