Visitors who vacation in Hawaii will discover an island wonderland of unique holiday experiences guaranteed to have you exclaiming “Best Christmas Ever!” for years to come. Whether you’re a first-time visitor or you’ve traveled throughout the islands, Luxe Travel Hawai’i can tailor an adventure in paradise that will shake off the deepest winter chill. For example:
Treat family and friends to a private luau. Host an authentic luau at your private villa with spectacular outdoor views or in a luxury resort setting, complete with local dancers sharing the art of native hula. It’s Christmas dinner with an island twist!
Enjoy a different kind of “dinner and a show.” Honolulu City Lights isn’t just a song – it’s a monthlong Christmas lights and decorations display! Your magical evening begins with a professional chauffeur at your door, who then ushers you into a limousine with a plush bar stocked with your favorite beverages. Your progressive dinner begins with appetizers at Le’ahi Concept Kitchen, which partners culinary students with international master chefs such as Alex Atala, whose Brazilian restaurant D.O.M. was rated 4th best restaurant in the world by Restaurant magazine. For your main course, soak in 360-degree panoramic views of the sun setting on the world-famous Waikiki Beach while feasting on award-winning Pacific Rim cuisine. Finally, relax to the sound of the lapping waves as you polish off a massive piece of hula pie – a macadamia nut ice cream pie that has helped put Duke’s Waikiki at the top of the list of most Instagrammed restaurants in Hawaii.
Next up is the highlighted attraction: the amazing holiday light display at Honolulu Hale, starting with a 21-foot-tall Shaka Santa and Mrs. Claus, known locally as Tutu Mele. You can purchase a keepsake ornament similar to ones adorning their Christmas tree, including Hawaii-themed ones such as a spam musubi ornament! Indoors, you’ll enter and explore an enchanted forest of trees and corridor of wreaths festively adorned with colorful island and cartoon themes.
Honolulu City Lights debuts the first weekend in December with a parade and tree lighting ceremony, and the display will be up through Jan. 1, 2018.
Give the gift of memories for a lifetime. Adventure junkies will have to try canyoneering in Maui, where you’ll walk down waterfalls into a rainforest canyon in a private valley off the famous Road to Hana. Or rise above the rainbows on an aerial adventure as you take a helicopter tour that dips into Hawaii’s Valley of the Kings, then lands on a private cliffside where you’ll dine overlooking black sand beaches, followed by a short hike to a refreshing waterfall where you can cool off in the freshwater pools. If you’d prefer your ecotours on the aquatic side, you can explore the rain-carved slopes of the majestic Na Pali Coast on an exhilarating ride aboard a luxury catamaran, then drop anchor and frolic in the warm waters of the Pacific alongside schools of fish and occasional sea turtle.
These are just a few of the experiences we’re waiting to share with you … be prepared to have visions of pineapples dancing in your heads this holiday season! Contact Luxe Travel Hawai’i clicking here to email us today.
