Guide to Luxury Holidays in Hawaii

Hawaii is a renowned destination for a good reason. It's a real paradise with lush tropical rainforests, volcanic peaks, dramatic waterfalls, an ocean alive with coral reefs and tropical fish and some of the world's best beaches. The Hawaiian culture is as diverse and welcoming as the state. A luxury holiday to Hawaii is a magical escape.

On O’ahu island, explore the capital city of Honolulu, where you can visit museums, art galleries and the Pearl Harbour memorial. If you’re feeling more active, you can take the scenic trails along the crater and caldera of the dormant volcano known as Diamond Head, trek to the spectacular 150 foot cascading waters of Manoa Falls or learn how to surf at iconic bays like Waikiki.

Travel southeast to the island of Maui, where National Parks protect moon-like volcanic landscapes and vibrant bamboo forests sparkling with greenery. In Maui’s bays, you’ll find colourful coral gardens and humpback whales surface for air. The island is also home to one of the best beaches in the world – the black sands of Honokalani Beach. Maui also boasts hidden coves and amazing vibrant sunsets.

Next travel southeast to Hawaii Island, also known as The Big Island, where you'll find more beaches with unusual colours. At Punalu'u Beach, you can walk across jet black sands and admire the local turtles that bask in the sun or visit Papakolea Beach to see one of only four beaches in the world with unique green sand. Of course, Hawaii Island has plenty of other sites of natural beauty including epic volcanoes, stunning waterfalls, and lush rainforests.

As Hawaii is close to the equator, its weather remains relatively consistent making it a perfect luxury holiday destination at any time of year. Temperatures hover about 25 degrees Celsius from spring to winter, with the summer seeing highs around 30 degrees Celsius.

Typically, the summer tends to be the driest season. Despite a higher chance of rainfall during the winter, showers are short-lived and often quickly turn into blue skies. Hawaii is one destination where you won’t need to worry about the weather.

As with any holiday, it's a good idea to carry some identification with you. British citizens don’t need a visa to enter the USA. Visit GOV.UK for more advice on passports, visas and travel.

Award-winning restaurants await at your luxury hotel in Hawaii so expect some of the best food on the islands. Start your morning with a buffet breakfast featuring fresh pastries. In the evening, you’ll find menus with Hawaiian specialities like poached lobster, miso kampachi and scallops and squid ink pasta.

After your meal, relax with signature Hawaiian cocktails or Maui wines. Hawaii cocktails are typically quite fruity cocktails and include favourites like Mai Tai, Coconut Mojito, or Captain’s Demise. Maui island produces the region’s wines including sparkling pineapple wine.
