Hawaii is a renowned destination - and for good reason. It's a true paradise, with lush tropical rainforests, volcanic peaks, and dramatic waterfalls. Pair that with an ocean alive with coral reefs and tropical fish, and some of the world's best beaches, and it’s easy to see why a luxury Hawaii holiday is a truly 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 planning a more active holiday in Hawaii, 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 surfacing for air. The island is also home to hidden coves, vibrant sunsets, and one of the best beaches in the world – the black sands of Honokalani Beach.
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, so make sure you have time to see them all during your holidays to Hawaii.

Planning when to jet off on your luxury holiday to Hawaii is fairly simple. Being close to the equator, the 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 of 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, no matter when you visit.
As with any holiday, it's a good idea to carry some identification with you, but British citizens don’t need a visa to enter the USA. Visit GOV.UK for more advice on passports, visas and travel before jetting off on your Hawaii holidays.
Award-winning restaurants await on luxury Hawaii holidays, so expect some of the best food on the islands. Start your morning with a buffet breakfast featuring fresh pastries to set you up for the day. And 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 and include favourites like Mai Tai, Coconut Mojito, or Captain’s Demise. Maui island produces the region’s wines, including sparkling pineapple wine - the perfect summer tipple to enjoy on holidays in Hawaii.
