When thinking of the perfect destination for the memorable vacation, nothing beats Hawaii.The Hawaiian Islands have a mix of laid back attitude, and fast-paced activities. Hawaii has a lot going for it. Same currency, no foreign language, and beautiful beaches. Tropical drinks and a luau thrown in for a little culture.
All major airports on most of the islands have great flights from the mainland, USA. Picking an island for your destination is no longer a hassle. Here are a few of our favorite places.
Honolulu is on the south shore of Oahu and it dominates the island. Oahu itself is a volcanic mass divided into sections by two separate mountain ranges. The Waianae Range on the western side of the island, and the Koolau Range to the east; both ranges run northwest to southeast: The Koolau separates the city of Honolulu with its hotel-filled neighborhood of Waikiki from the windward side of the island and the towns of Kailua and Kaneohe.
The island of Maui deserves its reputation as a top vacation destination. It's covered with pristine white-sand beaches, calm ocean bays and thrilling surf, stunning mountain and volcano vistas, sugarcane fields, highland ranches, waterfall-fed pools and twisting mountain roads.
But Maui is no hidden gem—it's the second most-visited Hawaiian island; you'll have to do some work to find tropical solitude. Still, Maui's beauty and the mix of different areas make it a good choice. Regardless of where you're staying, the entire island can be seen in a series of day trips.
Active couples might enjoy Kauai. You can dive, surf, hike, bike—all with stunning mountains and beaches as your backdrop. Enjoy a trek along the dramatic trails of Waimea Canyon National Park, a boat ride alongside the Na Pali Coast and a surf lesson. Unwind with a couple’s massage beneath the shade of a thatched roof bungalow at the Grand Hyatt Kauai's Anara Spa, then toast the trip with a glass of champagne at St. Regis Princeville's alfresco bar. Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Kauai Grill is the ideal spot for a late romantic dinner; feast on pan seared mero with Malaysian chili sauce and short rib osso-buco style, while taking in the swoon-worthy views of Hanalei Bay.
Hawaii must be discovered as a group. The sights, smells, and food make this one of the best destination locations. Call us for any questions you may have at 401-397-5515 or visit http://smooth-saillings.com for details.
