We recently had two clients come to us for their Hawaiian honeymoon. They were excited to start planning a vacation they will never forget. Luxury Travel Vacations works really hard to customize each and every product, putting together packages that will create lifetime memories. After all the work we did for the soon-to-be husband & wife, it reminded me that Hawaii is an amazing location to celebrate a honeymoon, for a family get away, or even just to rest & relaxation.
It occurred to me that so many people think Hawaii is just for the once in a lifetime trip, they don't even consider it for a non-celebratory vacation. With so much to offer, I thought it was the perfect Blog topic. Hawaii has so many things to do, places to see, and resorts to relax at - its not just for special occasions anymore!
Royal Hawaiian Resort
One of the must see hotels when visiting Hawaii is the Royal Hawaiian in Oahu. It is a historic hotel built in 1927, it is known as the "Pink Palace of the Pacific," ushered in a new era of luxurious resort travel to Hawaii. Located on breathtaking Waikiki beachfront, the Royal Hawaiian is an exclusive enclave for luxury and romance. With its two pools, magnificent restaurants, hotel entertainment, and private beach this resort will make you want to stay forever!
Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort
Another wonderful hotel is the Hilton Waikoloa Village located on the Kohala side of the Big Island. This resort is perfect for all ages! Experience award-winning dining, world-class shopping, and an array of activities ranging from golf, tennis and the only interactive dolphin program on the island, I promise there is something for everyone! The Hilton also does an impressive Fourth of July celebration has guests booking a YEAR in advance!!!
Activities & Attractions
The Dole Pineapple Plantation is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Hawaii. You can go through the World's Largest Maze, take a tour of the plantation, learn how to grow your own pineapple, how to cut a pineapple and some new recipes! They even allow you to purchase pineapples and ship them home which is much better than a postcard to friends and family.
The Pearl Harbor Memorial is also a popular tourist attraction. The USS Arizona is a 184-foot-long Memorial structure spanning the mid-portion of the sunken battleship consists of three main sections: the entry and assembly rooms; a central area designed for ceremonies and general observation; and the shrine room, where the names of those killed on the Arizona are engraved on the marble wall. You will hear stories, visit the new visitor's center and much more when visiting Pearl Harbor.
One of the most magnificent experiences in Hawaii are the volcanoes. Hawaii still has a few active volcanoes. There are many ways to experience them such as helicopter rides, ATV Tours, and by visiting the Volcano National Park.
