However, perhaps Hawaii's most special feature is the “Aloha Spirit” you will find in the warmth of the Hawaiians.
Each Hawaiian island has its own distinct personality and offers its own unique attractions, so we will experience 3 of them. We begin on the island of Oahu for a 5-night stay in Waikiki (Honolulu). This is where all the main action is for activities, entertainment, shopping and restaurants. Our hotel here is the Courtyard by Marriott, located in the heart of Waikiki within walking distance of Waikiki Beach. The hotel has a restaurant, spa, pool area and gardens, and all rooms have a balcony and kitchenette facilities.
Next is the Island of Hawaii, also known as the “Big Island”. It is home to a wide diversity of scenic wonders, including the molten magma flowing from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the snow-capped peaks of Hawaii’s highest mountains, green rainforests and the jet-black sands of Punaluu Beach. It is also home to modest local towns and sacred Hawaiian historical sites, such as Hawaii’s first missionary church in Historic Kailua Village. Our hotel, the Royal Kona Resort, has a dramatic oceanfront setting overlooking picturesque Kailua Bay. It is conveniently located within walking distance of the town of Kona with its many fine restaurants, shops, historic sites and activities. The hotel has a restaurant, bar, oceanfront swimming pool, lush gardens and lovely, spacious guestrooms.
Maui (the “Valley Isle”) is designated the World’s Best Island to visit by most major travel publications. The island offers a wealth of activities (on land and sea) and scenic wonders which include black, red and white sand beaches, the soaring summit of the Haleakala volcano and the emerald peaks that tower above the lush Iao Valley. Our hotel, the Royal Lahaina Resort, is located right on Kaanapali Beach - one of Maui’s top beaches with 3 miles of white sand, a championship golf course, a daily sunset cliff-diving ceremony and the Whaler’s Village shopping complex. Kaanapali is also a short drive from Lahaina - a historic whaling village which is now a lively resort town with world-class art galleries. The Royal Lahaina Resort has a restaurant, 2 bars, a beach activity centre, 2 oceanfront swimming pools, tennis courts, fitness centre and classes, scheduled activities, nightly live Hawaiian entertainment, lush gardens, shuttle service to Lahaina and lovely, spacious guestrooms with balconies.
