If the words “all-inclusive” sound like your idea of heaven on earth, then look into a resort in Hawaii for your next vacation. There are luxurious resorts in several places throughout the islands, from the bustling beaches of Waikiki to more quiet areas on Kauai and Maui, and not all of them are reserved for the rich and famous.
Perhaps the nicest thing about staying in a resort in Hawaii is that you’ll know everything is included, everything is taken care of, and if you need anything – and we do mean anything – there’s an eager concierge on hand who wants to make it happen for you. And who doesn’t like the sound of that kind of service?
Many of Hawaii’s top resorts are also attached to Hawaii’s top golf courses, so you won’t have to go far to play on some of the best courses you’ll ever see. Other things you may want to focus on when you’re looking for a resort are whether you want a place that has a no-child policy (honeymoon, anyone?), a place that organizes day-trips and tours (like sport fishing, surfing, diving or sailing), a place that’s located right on a beach front or has rooms actually over the water, or an eco-tourism location.
Staying in a resort can be the ultimate in luxury, but it doesn’t have to break the bank – many resorts have different levels of rooms and services available so you can take advantage of some of the great services but not pay through the nose for all of them. Don’t automatically assume that the word “resort” next to a property is going to be out of your price range – it may be, but it may surprise you! And that’s one of those good surprises.
How to book your resort
Use the widgets at the top and bottom of this page to search for resorts and hotels in Hawaii. It may be a bit confusing because they are lumped together in the “hotel” category and as noted above, the word “resort” in the name of the property doesn’t always signify a resort. Start by plugging your desired location and dates, then select from various travel booking sites on the page that follows. Resorts will often have a “resort fee” that is added to your pricing which will allow you access to many of the resort amenities. Keep in mind that it may also be most economical to select a vacation package which includes air, accommodation, and car rental in order to group together savings.
