It is America, but like no other place in the United States. That is mainly because Hawaii is 2500 miles away, in the Pacific Ocean. And includes the world famous Waikkiki Beach, the island of Oahu, Maui and Hawaii itself.
Strangely, one of the world’s most remote chains of islands is actually easily accessible, even though it has been dropped into the Pacific Ocean some 2500 miles away from the west coast of the United States. As you might expect, this far flung collection of tropical gems - encircled by powder white beaches and warm, blue seas – offers beach-side resorts that are quite different to those you will find on mainland America.
So make Hawaii part of your plans for a luxury, tailor-made holiday and you will find yourself looking with wonder at the distinctive decoration of Buddhist temples, and comparing them to the spiritual aesthetics of Shinto shrines. You will dine on exquisite sushi and examine fine art executed on human skin; the work of highly skilled Chinese tattooists. All testament to the cultural richness of this unique chain of islands.
But never forget that Hawaii is the 50th state of the United States of America. So – as well as the incomparable Waikiki Beach on Oahu Island, and the beauty of Maui’s beaches, natural landscapes and majestic Western Maui Mountains – you can expect superlative hotels, American levels of service, superb shopping and a choice of impeccable golf courses.
