Sheraton Princess Kaiulani
Hearing the name “Hawaii” evokes feelings of luxury and relaxation. But what about this Central Pacific archipelago makes it so magical? For thrill-seekers and resort-stayers alike, Waikiki in Hawaii's "Gathering Place" island Oahu is every traveller's paradise.
Hawaii has some of the most stunning beaches and landscapes in the world, and of those, Waikiki is possibly the most recognisable. The main hotel and resort area ensures that every room is within a short walk from - if not directly on - the beach. Whether you take to the sea by surfboard, catamaran, or an old fashioned swim, the waters will welcome you.
You’ll be spoilt for choice with so many opportunities to spend alone time with your special someone. Enjoy a couple’s spa massage, try a couple’s surfing lesson in Waikiki, sip cocktails at a resort bar, and indulge at a fine dining restaurant, all among the romantic background of unparalleled coastline. Allow the shining sun to set the tone for a beautiful experience together and relax together on island time.
Oahu is a family holiday dream. The sand, sun, and sea are enough to keep everyone satisfied for days. Children, teens, and adults can all enjoy surf lessons and other beginner water sports. But for more to explore on land, take the kids to the Waikiki Aquarium or Honolulu Zoo for an up-close-and-personal animal experience. Or go inside a real submarine at Pearl Harbor and learn an important part of the island's history.
Hawaii is not only the ultimate place to unwind and relax, but it’s also an ideal location for adrenaline junkies. First time visitors can jump into the Hawaiian lifestyle by riding waves or snorkelling. But it only begins there. Get a serious dose of adrenaline by skydiving, challenge your stamina with a guided bike ride through the rainforest, or stay active by hiking, golfing, or riding horseback. So the question is: how will YOU catch your thrill?
