Hawaii Resorts

The Hawaii resorts are scattered across the state’s main islands, and among travelers looking for the perfect beach vacation in Hawaii, they’re a terrific option for accommodations. Many resorts have spectacular beachfront locations, and surprisingly to some travelers, there are options to fit a range of budgets. In fact, the selection is so good that Hawaii visitors should have no trouble finding a resort that suits their overall preference, for both location and budget.

Oahu is a good place to start if you are searching for Hawaii resorts. After all, this island is where Waikiki Beach, one of the premier beach destinations in the US, can be found. Lining this world-famous strip of sand are wonderful resorts that offer excellent facilities to go with their comfortable rooms and their amazing locations. Of course, not all of the Oahu resorts are found on Waikiki Beach, and off the island, Maui, Kauai, the Big Island, and even Lanai also have their own share of excellent options as well

Since Hawaii is blessed with some of the world’s best beaches, it only makes sense that the majority of the best Hawaiian resorts are beach resorts. Aside from the Waikiki Beach area, great beach resorts on Oahu include the Ko Olina Resort & Marina, the Turtle Bay Resort, and the new Aulani Resort as well. In Maui, the Makena Surf Resort and Wailea Beach Villas are two of the most popular, and the Sheraton Maui Resort is known for its terrific string of pools and great snorkeling location. On the Big Island, the Kailua-Kona area is home to the nicest resorts, and the smaller island of Kauai has some of the prettiest beaches, many of which are surrounded by terrific resort options. With so many options, when it comes to choosing a Hawaii resort, it really comes down to the kind of resort you have in mind and which specific attractions you wish to have within easy reach.

Travelers who are interested in staying at one of the luxury resorts in Hawaii have no shortage of options to consider. Many of the Waikiki beach hotels are of the upscale variety, with examples of luxury resorts including the Royal Hawaiian and the Halekulani Resort. Those who prefer staying in a quieter part of Oahu might opt instead to go with the J.W. Marriott Ihilani Resort, which is in the Ko Olina Resort area. As for luxury resorts in Hawaii that can be found on other islands, they include the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai on the Big Island, the Grand Wailea Resort on Maui, and the St. Regis Princeville Resort on Kauai. These are just some of the upscale Hawaii resorts, however, and luxury-minded travelers shouldn’t stop there when trying to find their ideal fit. The experience at the busier resort areas on Maui, for instance, versus the quiet Four Seasons resorts on Lanai is very different, so comparison shopping is wise.

A healthy amount of Hawaii resorts have families in mind. Among the things that these resorts are known to offer are kids clubs and kid-friendly dining options.

Among the very best family resorts in Hawaii are the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki, the Fairmont Orchid (Big Island), the Hyatt Regency Maui, and the Grand Hyatt Kauai. Families with younger kids might also keep the Disney Aulani Resort in mind. Opened in 2011, this delightful resort in Oahu’s Ko Olina area certainly knows how to keep little ones happy, not to mention older kids and adults.

Hawaii All Inclusive Resorts

Searching for Hawaii all inclusive resorts can be frustrating. Many beach destinations around North America specialize in this type of lodging, but on the Hawaiian islands there aren’t really any classic all-inclusive options to speak of. Reasons for this include the relatively high employee wages and the high costs that are associated with shipping in food and other things; in short, it simply isn’t economically advantageous for the resorts to offer all inclusive packages. That being said, there are individual travel companies that offer all inclusive Hawaii vacation packages that include such things as your flight, your ground transportation, your accommodations, and your meals, and while no Hawaii resort offers all inclusive packages, there are many that offer other kinds of package deals. The Hilton Waikoloa Village, for example, is known to offer lodging packages that can include such things as a daily breakfast buffet or a sunset cruise aboard a catamaran. You can find the Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Big Island’s Kohala Coast.
