The first things that come into mind when thinking about Hawaii are fantastic beaches, the gentle murmur of palm trees, hula dancers, bright garlands of flowers, tropical rainforests, cascading waterfalls, active and dormant volcanoes, Honolulu city life, and the magic of the indigenous people. The largest island in the archipelago and it namesake, trumps almost any other island on the planet with its magnificent and extraordinary lava landscape. Whenever you go in these dreamlike Pacific Islands, you’ll discover the ‘aloha spirit’ and enjoy the islanders’ infectious friendliness.
Choosing the right accommodation options for you and also your family depends on what you are planning to do in Hawaii. The Island of Oahu is the most populous island and home to the state capital and the largest city Honolulu. It is also great for people who wish to experience the islands and still keep the conveniences of a large city. Rainforests and hiking trails are located just minutes from Waikiki Beach, which itself is one of the world’s best tourist destinations. In the winter, large waves on Oahu’s north shore turn the normally sleep area into the surfing capital of the world. For those who want to experience Hawaii at a slower pace the Neighbor Islands will be the best choice. Many of the natural wonders of the islands are located on the Neighbor Islands, including Waimea Canyon on Kauai, Haleakala on Maui, and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island.
The best time to travel to the islands is in late spring, when you will encounter pleasantly warm temperatures, flowers in bloom and fewer tourists, since it is also before US school holidays begin (min-June to early September). Prices rise in summer and over Christmas and the New Year.
Finding accommodation is easy in Hawaii. You can choose from historic hotels, luxury resorts, spacious timeshares, charming vacation rentals, bed and breakfasts, hostels as well as rental condos. Many hotels and timeshares are generally cheaper than you might think. Affordable accommodation is available on all the islands.
If you fancy luxury bathrooms, full kitchens, living rooms and swimming pools you can stay in one of the best timeshare resorts in Hawaii, like the Hilton Grand Waikikian. If you prefer more private environment you can choose from a number of timeshare resorts in Hawaii. If you’re going to buy a timeshare directly from a resort it can be more expensive, because building space is limited and property is in higher demand than in most other states. Thus, it might be better to consider buying a timeshare resale, which can cost 60 percent less than what a resort might charge.
