The Hawaiian Islands

Imagine yourself in an island paradise with beautiful beaches, lush green mountain rain-forests, unique cultural experiences and awe-inspiring scenery!  Its paradise all year round and no passport needed (for US citizens)! Hawaii–six major islands—Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui and Hawaii—each waiting to be explored and each with their unique offerings.  All offer accommodations to fit any preference from secluded luxury properties to beach front resorts to family condominiums.  Relax, rejuvenate, explore, and restore!


Hawaii The Big Island

Did you know that on Hawaii, the state of Hawaii’s largest island, one can experience 11 of the world’s 13 climate zones?  Kilauea is one of the most active volcanoes in the world.  You can see lava flow into the ocean or beaches of white, green, black and red volcanic sand. If you’d rather soak up the sun on a beautiful beach and read that novel you’ve been waiting to get to, eat wonderful food, search for the best Mai Tai Bar on the islands, or perhaps great shopping is your way to unwind. Swim with the dolphins! Did you know some hotels even have their own dolphins in residence? Enjoy a traditional sunset luau and have kalua pig or the island moon and the fish and the poi! Watch the graceful Hawaiian dances like the hula and marvel at the fire dancers! You can find it all in the Hawaiian Islands any time of year! Continue 




On Kauai, known as the “Garden Isle”, is perfect for romance and adventure.  Walk through history exploring charming towns like Koloa, Hanalei and Lihue and shop along the way for some unique souvenirs.  The island is full of luxuriant green natural wonder for hiking or play beautiful verdant golf courses.  For those looking for more adventure, how about a shark swimming excursion!
As Hawaii’s oldest island, we can add Kauai to the list of things that just get better with age. Plan to divide your time between relaxing and exploring this island’s nearly endless list of fabulous natural phenomena, from the famed Na Pali Coast to the Spouting Horn, from the “sleeping giant” Nounou Mountain to Opaekaa Falls, and even the locations for filming blockbusters like Jurassic Park and Jurassic World. Off the dramatic shores of the island, snorkel or dive with colorful tropical marine life, and keep your eye on the horizon from December to April to spy behemoth humpback whales… Continue 


Picture a morning bike ride down a volcano, an afternoon visit to a winery, relaxing on the balcony of your hotel and the amazing sight of Humpback whales surfacing in the distance and a romantic dinner to end the day.  Ready?  On Maui, the “Valley Isle” you can find all of this as well as historic sights, and beautiful scenery to explore.

From the top of Haleakala down to Lahaina harbor, Maui is packed full of adventure and singular experiences.  Maui has some of the world’s most spectacular beaches, championship golf, and a fabulous variety of shopping and dining options.
The west side of the island includes the gorgeous resort community of Kapalua, the smaller resort areas of Napili and Kahana, and popular Kaanapali Beach area.
Further south, the quaint and historic whaling village of Lahaina is a lively town with shops, art galleries, excellent restaurants, and accommodations. Continue 






If you only have time to take in one island, Oahu is a perfect introduction.  Oahu is home to some of the state’s most famous attractions—Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head Crater, Iolani Palace and the Pearl Harbor Memorial.  Honolulu offers top-notch shopping, nightlife, wonderful restaurants and an abundance of beautiful resorts.
Even though the weather is great year-round, there are times when hotels and airlines are trying to entice visitors with lower rates. Two of the most reasonable times to visit Hawaii are fall (avoiding Thanksgiving week) and late spring (after Easter and before Memorial Day).

Oahu has everything from luxury resorts to cottages and condos. The majority of the island’s resorts are lined up along Waikiki Beach, but you’ll also find high-end properties like Turtle Bay and the newly opened Four Seasons Oahu at Ko Olina. There are no all-inclusive resorts in Hawaii, but check our Hawaii deals for complimentary breakfast offers. Continue
