These views will make you want to visit Hawaii, immediately.
Spoiler – Hawaii is one of the best destinations out there. If you’ve been you’ll know why, and if you haven’t – you’re about to find out.
Hop from island to island or just settle on one and snorkel with some turtles, swim in the crystal clear water or shop up a storm (Hawaii is part of America, after all) – but find somewhere to stay first.
Hawaii is filled with the creme de la creme of hotels and resorts, but the some of the first on the islands belong to the Starwood group – which now comprise of 12 hotels and resorts dotted on the four main islands of Hawaii.
And Hawaii’s white sand beaches are only made better when you can see them – or walk to them – from your accomodation.
But after you see the photos from these hotels – you’re bound to have a whole lotta’ trouble picking just which one to stay in.
Located in the heart of Waikiki Beach opposite the ocean, the Moana Surfrider, a Westin Resort & Spa, has everything you need for the perfect Hawaiian getaway. Picture spending a day on the pristine private beach before heading to the oceanfront Moana Lani Spa for a little TLC.
The pool at this hotel was recently one of the best around by USA Today readers – and they’re not wrong. Even if you aren’t staying there you can still book an intimate party in one of the waterfront cabanas – which fill up quickly, by the way.
The Royal Hawaiian
Also know as the pink palace (for good reason) passers-by this hotel are often stopping for photos – but it’s even better if you stay the night. It also has it’s own bakery – filled with a ton of artisan Hawaiian goods like the resorts famous banana bread and Pink Palace croissant braids.
