‘UKULELE AND LESSONS
As part of the resort’s commitment to
perpetuating Hawaiian culture and heritage, The
St. Regis Princeville Resort offers an authentic
cultural series titled “The Art of the Craft,
ÿUkulele.” Guests are given an opportunity to try
their hand at a range of ‘ukulele themed activities
including ‘ukulele lessons. Playing the ‘ukulele is
one of Hawaiÿi’s most cherished pastimes and
fun to learn.
Complimentary ‘ukulele lessons are led by
resort staff weekly at The St. Regis Bar. Lessons
include a hands-on tutorial on the basics of
playing the ‘ukulele, including learning the
correct posture and finger positioning. By the
end of the lesson, participants can strum a few
simple chords and play a classic Hawaiÿi tune.
The St. Regis Princeville Resort’s Director of
Sales and Marketing, Don Chock says, “Many of
our guests travel to Kauaÿi to discover and learn
about Hawaiian culture. ‘The Art of the Craft,
ÿUkulele’ series provide lifelong memories that
distinguish their trip from anywhere else in the
world. It’s our mission to ensure our guests leave
with new experiences and knowledge they didn’t
The St. Regis Princeville Resort hosts a
seasonal hardwood ‘ukulele display in The
St. Regis Bar. Curated by the Aloha Guided
Discovery, guests have the opportunity to
purchase, and even customize their very own
‘ukulele. Costs vary depending on make, style,
and the level of customization, and can take
anywhere from four to six weeks to complete.
Shipping is offered to guests who have returned
home from their vacation.
A portion of proceeds from ‘ukulele sales
benefit the Kökeÿe Resource Conservation
Program, aimed at the preservation of native
forests on Kauaÿi, including the removal of alien
and invasive species harmful to the island’s
natural and delicate ecosystem.
