Honolulu. The name ripples off the tongue like the undulating movements of a hula dance. If there is a paradise on earth, surely it is to be found among the islands of Hawaii, with its white sandy beaches, great stretches of ocean, swaying palm trees, and warm, breezy climate year round.
There are many ways to indulge while in Honolulu and on the island of Oahu. There is, of course, the “natural way,” by strolling the gorgeous beaches, swimming in crystal-clear waters, and simply soaking in the heavenly warmth of the sun.
Then, there are luxury accommodations to enjoy. For instance, Halekulani, an upscale hotel located in Waikiki, whisks you off the busy streets and into a center of tranquility and calm. A luscious, open-air courtyard and impeccably-trained staff greet you upon arrival, and set the tone for the rest and relaxation that await. Unwind in your gorgeously appointed room, and then stroll to the House Without A Key lounge, opening up onto a spectacular ocean view. Sipping your Mai Tai, you will have a particularly memorable experience when the sun sets to the sounds of live, traditional Hawaiian music and dance.
World-class food and wine are also offered Honolulu. We recommend especially a visit to Alan Wong’s, who’s creative Asian/Fusion dishes will thrill the senses. And of course, an outstanding wine list is available, sure to please even the most particular wine connoisseur.
For the jet-set shopper, the streets of Waikiki will not disappoint. Though the obligatory Hawaiian shirt and plastic hula-girl peddling gift shops abound, you will also find Tiffany, Coach, BOSS, and more in Waikiki’s “Luxury Row”.
Consider Honolulu in your upcoming vacations plans. Paradise certainly awaits.
