Recent Travels :: Hawaii

It's always such a pleasure to get back to Hawaii. This trip was especially exciting because I took the opportunity to visit Lanai for the first time and experience the newly renovated Four Seasons Manele Bay. I've always felt like each island has something so different to offer and this theory continues to hold true. It's easy for travelers to categorize Hawaii in simple terms and blanket statements that I often find a bit cliché. But I have to tell you I continue to find new experiences, a variety of hotels to meet every need, and a culture that has a story and a depth worth exploring.

First stop : Hotel Wailea

Key Facts : Adults Only, Relais & Chateaux, the food (yum), about a 4 minute drive from the busy Wailea beach scene, but with a beach club in the mix, exclusive feel
