Where you should stay in Hawaii

The Hawaiian greeting of hello

Has the fact that it’s hump day AND the day after Melbourne cup got you down? Never fear, we’ve got just the thing to help you escape for a little bit.

Picture yourself in Hawaii. The weathers perfect, the sky is blue and most importantly, you’re not in the office. But where do you stay? Lets answer that question together.

There’s a ton of massive hotels in Hawaii, but condo and apartment-style accomodation is rising up the ranks. Most include a kitchen and living room, making you feel like you actually live in Hawaii and never have to work. Amazing.

Hopefully these top picks, located on the four main islands of Hawaii, will help you dream the day away until tomorrow, when your head feels better.
