Hawaii is an amazing place to visit for many reasons, whether you stay in a resort and enjoy the hospitality or hike across volcanic landscapes. It’s also a once in a lifetime vacation for many, so when people come to the islands, they want to ensure that they’re getting the best possible experience. Here’s how to upgrade your experience and enjoy Hawaii to the fullest.
Arrive in Style
Don’t arrive in Kona feeling too tired to enjoy your first day. If you’re going to do Hawaii in luxury, then that should include your transport to the island. It’s easy to get a price for services such as private jets Chicago or other cities, and in many cases, it may be less expensive than you think to enjoy this kind of luxury arrival. Another way to arrive is by cruise ship, although most cruise packages don’t spend much time on each island. However, it can be a good way to experience Hawaii in a hurry.
Why stay on one island in Hawaii when there’s so much to see and do? If you only have a short time in the state, you may want to consider island-hopping around Hawaii by plane. While you can take ferries, there are limited services, and they usually take a few hours, or there are private island-hopping trips, which can also be slow but are enjoyable. Most island-hopping flights are less than an hour, give spectacular views, and allow you to see different islands on different days.
Get Private Tours
Even if you’re a tourist yourself, you may not want to end up on a bus full of tourists, taking hours to reach the volcanoes and stopping at restaurants full of other coachloads of travelers. Skip all of that by booking private tours of Hawaii given by locals. All the islands have at least one tour guide who has always lived in the area, and who can take you directly to the big tourist spots, hidden gems, and the best places to try authentic poi or poke.
Look for Luxury Accommodation
Hawaii isn’t exactly short of luxury accommodation, and there are new hotels and resorts being built all the time. You’re really spoilt for choice when you come to Hawaii, whether you want a 5-star hotel with easy access to golf courses, or a resort with all the extras such as spas, pools and villas on the seafront.
Lots of resorts offer all-inclusive dining, but even if your resort has amazing food, it’s worth making reservations in local restaurants for a couple of nights. You can enjoy fine dining, such as Hawaiian fusion cuisine while taking in the seafront views. From romantic to family-friendly, there are plenty of places to dine.
Hawaii is a great destination for a luxury break as it’s got a little of what everyone likes; natural beauty, upmarket resorts, great food and lots of sunshine. Whether you’re on your honeymoon or just in need of a relaxing vacation, it’s easy to find the type of vacation you need in Hawaii.
