Sunsets paint the sky with ethereal colors no one has ever been able to quite replicate, Plumeria-scented breezes gently caress your face as you’re stretched out on a luscious piece of coastline so pristine and white, it almost doesn’t seem real. This is the sorcery of Hawaii. Spending time in this magical land is salve for the soul and anyone who has visited the island oases of Hawaii knows how it can be life-changing. So, the question is not if you plan on going, but when.
Many travelers don’t realize there are 137 islands that are part of the Hawaiian chain, but many are small islets or coral reefs, atolls and typically uninhabited. There are eight main islands: Hawaii, Maui, Koho’olawe, Molokai, Lanai, Oahu, Kauai and Niihau (also known as the Forbidden Island, a critical habitat for highly endangered species, and one of the most-coveted travel destinations in the world).
We invite you to read about the lure of the Hawaiian Islands and why Hawaii luxury travel should be high on your radar.

Event after Event
All the main Hawaiian Islands have a full roster of events families will appreciate. For instance, there are the Aloha Festivals – the largest Hawaiian cultural celebration in the US. In 1946, Aloha Festivals began as "Aloha Week," a cultural celebration of Hawaii's music, dance, and history intended to perpetuate the islands' unique traditions. Aloha Festivals have become a statewide celebration of Hawaiian culture. The extravaganza now encompasses some 300 events on six islands. There is also the Hawaii Food and Wine Festival with more than 100 internationally renowned master chefs, culinary personalities, winemakers and mixologists gathering for the past nine years. This festival has expanded from a three-day festival with 30 chefs in Waikiki, to more than 20 events with more than 10,000 attendees and 120 chefs spanning three Islands. Since its 2011 launch, HFWF has donated more than $3 million to community organizations supporting sustainability, culinary programs and agriculture. Other events to note include:
- The Honolulu Festival;
- The Honolulu Marathon;
- The King Kamehameha Floral Parade;
- The Lei Day Celebration;
- Pow!Wow! Hawaii;
- Vans Triple Crown of Surfing.
