For Your Romantic Getaway
The Islands of Hawai’i form a graceful arching archipelago of the eight main Hawaiian Islands of Hawai’i, Maui, Kaho’olawe, Lana’i, Moloka’i, O'ahu, Kaua’i, and Ni’ihau tethered to what is called the Hawaiian Ridge. Each island differs in age and topography, and each with its own romantic charm. During the early 1900’s, the world was entranced by the exotic nature of Hawai’i after listening to popular music of that period, and subsequently tourism landed in Hawai’i. Imagine your first view of the Pink Palace (The Royal Hawaiian Hotel), as you sailed by Waikiki aboard your Matson steamer to “discover“the islands. Today, visitors arrive by the millions in search of the culture and beauty that was Hawai’i. Thoughtful travelers, especially those seeking a romantic interlude together no longer seek the “wicky-wacky-Waikiki” of the popular songs in the 1920’s, Magnum, P.I.’s red Ferrari 308, or even Don Ho’s bubbles. Instead, they are looking for a truly authentic stay, and a place to relax into the rhythm of the islands and discover romance with their partners — sometimes even with kids in tow to enjoy Hawai’i. Wander with us to several of these special places on O’ahu, Maui, Kaua’i, Lana’i and Hawai’i. These are each treasured destinations, so take your time to get to know each of them, and to allow Hawai’i into your heart.
