5 Resorts Where You Should Stay
1. Kona Village Resort, Big Island
Stay in a “hale” (or bungalow) at this “Gilligan’s Island meets Five-Star resort.” Although it’s first class, feel free to leave the coat and tie at home. It’s the islands.
2. Grand Hyatt Poipu, Kauai
A great retreat for the entire family. Just across the street from Poipu Bay, home of the Grand Slam of Golf.
3. Princeville, Kauai
The beach may be pint-sized, but there’s great snorkeling just a few feet from shore. It’s the views of Hanalei Bay that stick with guests after they leave.
4. Four Seasons Resort, Maui
First-class service is par for the course at the Four Seasons. Plus, snorkeling equipment is gratis for one hour.
5. Turtle Bay Resort, Oahu
With plenty of solitude (it’s 40 minutes from the airport), Turtle Bay is a far cry from the jam-packed city of Waikiki. Stay in a beach cottage. Every one has ocean views.
