Hawaii’s archipelago is a slice of tropical paradise. The collection of tropical islands, scattered in the South Pacific, are defined by beautiful scenes of swaying palms, cascading waterfalls and calm turquoise lagoons. Not only is Hawaii home to incredible natural beauty, but its captivating cultural traditions are renowned. On luxury Hawaii holidays, discover the spirit of aloha, learn how to play the ukulele, and partake in a hula class on the beach.
Hawaii’s diversity allows you to experience a holiday in whichever way you wish, whether it be unlimited relaxation, cultural discovery or land and sea adventures. We’ve been lucky enough to explore the tropical islands of Hawaii on numerous occasions. Throughout the years, we have experienced barefoot luxury on the sandy shores and have adventured through the islands, combining our Hawaii holidays with Alaska for the ultimate combination of the United States.
POCKET GUIDE TO HAWAII
Also known as the ‘Valley Isle’, Maui is the second largest island in Hawaii. Renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty and stunning, golden beaches, outdoor adventurers are enticed by its abundant activity offerings. Whether that’s ziplining through verdant bamboo forests, hiking the rugged Ke’anae Peninsula, barrelling through waves on surf and windboards, snorkelling fish-filled reefs or humpback whale-watching, Maui has it all. An excellent culinary scene complements the island’s natural charms, and a delicious meal is never far away.
Lapped by the warm, turquoise blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, Hawaii’s lively Polynesian capital is a famed surfing destination that attracts avid wave-chasers and sunseekers alike. On a luxury holiday to Hawaii’s Honolulu, make Waikiki Beach top of the list. Diamond Head’s 350-acre volcanic crater and the mist shrouded Ko’olau Range both offer majestic, postcard-worthy views of the city and can be explored on foot or bike. After sunset, head to Chinatown and immerse yourself in its edgy art and nightlife scene.
With a landscape dotted by tropical rainforests, jagged cliffs, cascading waterfalls, red-rock canyons, and pristine, sandy beaches, it’s not hard to see why Kauai is known as the ‘Garden Island’. Whether soaring over the valleys in a helicopter, ziplining through the treetops, exploring sea caves or swimming with turtles, you will be spoilt for choice with the varied range of activities on offer. Finish the day with a feast of kalua pig and taro at a traditional Hawaiian luau.
