Travel Bureau - 10 new Kuoni properties in Hawaii

Destination focus: Hawaii

Wednesday 15 August 2018

With its spectacular coastlines, dramatic forest-clad hills and blissed-out beach vibe, Hawaii is a dream holiday destination, perfect for honeymooners or anyone chasing that island paradise fantasy. The four main islands each have their own distinct character and island-hopping itineraries are highly recommended to get the full flavour of Hawaii.

Known as ‘The Big Island’, the island of Hawaii is, unsurprisingly, the largest of the bunch. It’s also the cultural and historic heart of the islands and is dominated by active volcanoes. Next along is Maui, known as ‘The Valley Isle’, this is probably what most people think of when they imagine Hawaii: lush, rugged landscapes and pristine beaches. Oahu is a must for surfers, head to the North Shore for some of the world’s best surfing. Known as ‘The Gathering Place’, Oahu is the most populous of the four islands and is also home to historic Pearl Harbour and vibrant Waikiki. Finally comes Kauai, known as ‘The Garden Isle’, it is the least developed and most tropical of the four islands and is subsequently often considered the most beautiful.

Hawaii, USA

Kuoni has some fantastic new properties on offer in Hawaii, with a great range of resorts across all four islands catering to all tastes and every budget. Take a look at what’s on offer below…


4* Grand Naniloa

Grand Naniloa, Hilo, Hawaii Island

Ideal for exploring Hawaii’s west coast, this fresh and comfortable DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel can be found in Hilo, standing beside a magnificent avenue of giant banyan trees.

4.5 *Waikola Beach Marriott Resort & Spa

Waikola Beach Marriott, Hawaii island

This recently-renovated beach hotel is set within the manicured grounds of the enormous Waikola resort complex. Located on Hawaii’s northwest coast, this is a great base from which to explore the whole of the island.


3* The Plantation Inn

The Plantation Inn, Lahania, Maui

Centrally located in the quaint township of Lahania, this characterful boutique hotel will be loved by those looking for authenticity. Lacking the facilities and beachfront location of larger chain resorts, this is a rare gem for those who love to explore.

5* Hotel Wailea

Hotel Wailea, Maui

At the other end of the scale is this stunning adults-only Relais & Chateau property, where a fleet of Teslas is on hand to shuttle guests to the hotel beach club or nearby shops. This upmarket paradise is perfect if you’re splashing out for a special occasion.


3.5* Queen Kapiolani

Queen Kapiolani, Oahu

This newly re-developed, independent Waikiki hotel has character in abundance with its vibrant mid-Century Hawaiian style. One major draw of this hotel is its unrivalled views of iconic Diamond Head.

4* Turtle Bay Resort

Turtle Bay Resort, Oahu

As a contrast to busy Waikiki, this traditional resort hotel is spread over hundreds of acres of private reserve on Oahu’s lesser developed North Shore. Offering endless facilities and activities, this is a great choice for families.

4.5* The Modern Honolulu

The Modern Honolulu, Oahu

The perfect spot for honeymooners and travellers looking for a livelier atmosphere, the Modern exudes a trendy beach club style and attracts a younger West Coast clientele. Overlooking a marina, the hotel is just a fifteen-minute walk from the buzz of Waikiki.

5* The Royal Hawaiian

The Royal Hawaiian, Oahu

This 5* Luxury Collection hotel is Waikiki’s most iconic property and the only choice for discerning travellers. Boasting a prime position on Waikiki beach, the Royal is referred to as the ‘Pink Palace’.


3* Waimea Plantation Cottages

Waimea Plantation Cottages, Kauai

Spread over 27 acres of a former sugar plantation, this characterful property offers rustic cottage-style accommodation. While it won’t suit those after the beach resort experience, independent travellers after a unique experience will love Waimea’s communal barbecues and heritage vibes.

4* Ko’a Kea Hotel & Resort

Ko'a Kea Hotel & Resort, Poipu, Kauai

This relaxed, 4* independent hotel is a perfect compromise between boutique charm and big resort facilities. Set on the sunny southern shores of Kauai, this quiet hotel is perfect for couples who want to relax without the bells and whistles of larger resorts.
