Far flung within the Pacific Ocean, Hawaii holds the torch as the youngest state in America. Its islands are isolated marvels of Polynesian beaches, luxury resorts, and dramatic volcanic scenery. Hawaii remains one of America’s most celebrated and beautiful tourism hubs, and this island paradise is best experienced on a luxury Hawaii holiday curated by Ker & Downey.

Hawaii is a favorite hot spot for honeymooners and romantic celebrations. Couples from across the globe flock here with gusto, aiming for lazy beachside bliss. Each of the eight Hawaiian islands—Hawaii, Maui, Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, Lanai, Ni’ihau, and Kaho’olawe—offers its own brand of beach. The golden sands on Maui are backed by several different scenes, like lush greens at Wailea and tall volcanic cliffs at Makena. Find shallow waters and rocky shores at Ko Olina on Oahu, and on the Big Island, a striking collection of both black and white sand beaches.

These shores were made for relaxing, but active pursuits are still a major part of a luxury Hawaii holiday. Try snorkeling among colorful fish, the Hawaiian green sea turtle called honu, and the tongue-twisting state fish of Hawaii, Humuhumunukunukuapua’a. With Ker & Downey, you can encounter the famed surf and sand of Waikiki and learn to ride the waves with a local champion surfer.

Fun in the sun is not the only reason to visit Hawaii. The islands are rich in cultural heritage, alive with elaborate mythology, ancient chiefdoms and Victorian-era kingdoms, and traditional music and dance. Hawaiian regional cuisine is fresh and always evolving, employing ingredients from the prolific local farms and plucked from the ocean. Local menus vary from delicate fine dining to food trucks and casual delights. Think Pacific-caught fish tacos, authentic luau roasts, shaved ice, and plenteous pineapple.

Ker & Downey’s distinct style of luxury Hawaii holiday expertly mingles authentic Polynesian heritage with all of the inspiring natural beauty. Contact your luxury travel consultant to begin creating your own Hawaiian islands getaway.
