If it’s a warm tropical getaway you’re after in 2018, join us in Hawaii! Our Hawaiian Islands tours feature an ideal mix of included attractions and leisure time. You don’t even need a passport to relax on some of the world’s most famous beaches, explore Volcanoes National Park, tour Honolulu, attend an authentic luau, and pay respects at the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. There are many Hawaiian attractions and destinations that make for a leisurely getaway, but one of the most important facets for an enriching vacation are the hotels.
We would like to introduce you to the four luxurious properties Holiday Vacations guests stay at during their time in the Aloha State, each just footsteps away from the Pacific Ocean and offering their own unique vibes and activities.

Just steps from Honolulu’s world-famous Waikiki Beach, this five-acre resort is our home base on the island of Oahu. Look forward to your room’s private balcony (called a lanai in Hawaiian), rejuvenate at the onsite spa, and savor extraordinary cuisine at the hotel’s Kuhio Beach Grill. Here you’re not far from Diamond Head Crater, the volcanic cone that overlooks Honolulu, and bedazzling city lights with plenty of opportunities for shopping. Just a couple blocks away on Waikiki Beach, be sure to check out the bronze statue of “the father of modern surfing” Duke Kahanamoku, a legendary swimmer, surfer, and outrigger canoe paddler who played a major role in spreading interest in surfing worldwide.
Imagine relaxing on your private lanai overlooking the island of Kauai’s lush Coconut Coast. It’s no wonder they call Kauai the Garden Isle! Home to the enchanting Fern Grotto, verdant Waimea Canyon (known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific), and several golf courses – one of which is right next to our resort. Best recognized by the laurel green roofs set against forested ridges and beautiful blue sky, Aqua Kauai Beach Resort features four outdoor pools, the Hawaiian Rainforest Spa, a sauna, delicious meals at several onsite restaurants, and peaceful beach strolls.
Things get volcanic at this resort! Perched on the black lava rocks that form The Big Island’s Kona Coast is the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa. With Hawaii’s tallest summit Moana Kea in the distance, relax at the Hoola Spa or enjoy the tranquil ambiance at the Rays on the Bay restaurant, where evening visitors may witness manta rays swimming in their natural environment. However, it’s the Oceanfront Pool that tends to leave the biggest impression: Enjoy spectacular views of the Pacific from the pool’s multiple levels with poolside cabanas, a poolside bar and grill, and whirlpool spas.
Located on Maui’s sunsoaked northwest coast, the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa lies on 40 beautiful acres with lavish swimming pools, tropical vegetation, five restaurants, the luxurious Kamaha’o Spa, and plenty to do nearby. The white sands of famous Ka’anapali Beach, the beachside mall Whalers Village, the Drums of the Pacific Luau & Polynesian Show, and Ka’anapali Golf Courses are all just a short stroll away. Look forward to the fresh tropical breeze from your room’s private lanai. If you’re feeling like you want to stay here, you’ll be in good company – penguins and tropical birds make this resort their home too!
