Hawaii The Beautiful
Our VIP clients returned back from Hawaii. Here are just some highlights from their family vacation.
We went on motorized rubber boat round Napali coast. They enter caves. Very cool. The other option is to take catamaran. Kauaʻi offers world-class snorkeling destinations teeming with fish and filled with beautiful coral reefs. Dolphins, sea turtles, manta rays, eels, and more have been sighted across the coral reefs of Kauai.
Very nice restaurant in Hanalei town : Dolphin ( best meal on Hawaii)
The Dolphin Restaurant has been a favorite of visitor and local alike, known for the freshest cuts in seafood, second to none service, nostalgic riverside ambiance and a World Class sushi lounge.
When go hiking in Napali state park on Kalalau trail, arrive early, as parking fills up fast. After hiking swim on Ke'e beach - no waves at all. MAUI:
Old Lahaina Luau needs to be booked at least two months in advance, gets sold out very fast. We did "drums of Pacific" in our hotel. At the end of Road to Hana there is stunning black sand beach in Wainapanapa state park. Hana lava tube nearby was interesting for the kids. Nice dinner option on the day of Road to Hana is Mama's fish house. It is in the beginning of Road to Hana, needs reservations. Mama’s Fish House is the product of a grand sailing adventure. We tasted their interpretation of the Pacific ocean and the Pacific islands.
We loved snorkeling in Molokini crater with Pacific Whale foundation. Tour was perfect in very way: marine biologist on board ( they organized small lectures on the way to and from), great breakfast with fresh baked banana bread and fresh fruit. While you are snorkeling in the submerged volcano, they grill lunch for you. Kids younger than 12 go for free. For thrill-seekers of all ages, PacWhale’s Maui snorkeling tours offer the adventure of a lifetime.
Very nice water front restaurant in Lahaina, we called 30 min before
Two sister's restaurant nearby : Frida's and Mala.
We chose Hilton because of a very good deal, however next time we would spend slightly and stay at Marriott next door. You can swim in the laguna .Marriott next door has nice beach and is being updated. Panaluu black sand beach with turtles and "Monet" pond with waterlilies is unreal. It is good idea to arrive to Volcano park later in the day, as lava glow is only seen after the sunset. We did Pu'uhonua park, than black sand beach, than Volcano park in this order.
Hawaii tropical botanical garden on Onomea route was an absolute gem. Mauna Key summit was very very impressive. Besides breathtaking sunset you get to go on a stargazing tour which is organized by the Visitor's center. They set up professional telescopes after the sunset and you can look at the Moon, Jupiter, etc. All over we had amazing time. Thank you Sasha.
