Luxury Honolulu Packages
Great Pacific gathering place, capital and largest city of the U.S. state of Hawaii and centre of culture, the arts and outdoor adventure, Honolulu remains a magical place in which to relax and unwind. Soak up the warm sun and ancient Polynesian culture as you meander along the water’s edge of Waikiki Beach or delight in the festivities of an authentic luau with its mesmerising hula dancers and feast of traditional foods.
Home to the ruling classes of Hawaii’s great royal families, Honolulu has transitioned over the last century from a quiet Pacific outpost into a cosmopolitan city of international significance. From the stylish hotels, shops and restaurants of Waikiki and Kalakaua Avenue to the royal Iolani Palace and the vast collection of natural Oahu Island wonders, Honolulu’s rich history, culture and lifestyle combine to create the perfect holiday location.
Where to stay in Honolulu
Honolulu is a world-class city filled with dazzling resorts and upscale hotels. Whether it’s boutique accommodation along the famous shopping and entertainment thoroughfare of Kalakaua Avenue or at one of the prestige landmark hotels along Waikiki Beach, this is a city that doesn’t skimp on luxury and style.
Most of Honolulu’s finest hotels and resorts are located on or near Waikiki Beach. This alluring stretch of sand along the Pacific coast is lined with some of the best hotels in the world. Choose from swank high rise hotels offering dramatic views of Diamond Head and the vast blue ocean or opt for a suite with a private pool and garden. Most premium hotel brands can be found here.
A short stroll away, along Ala Moana Boulevard, exclusive properties such as Grand Waikikian Suites by Hilton, the Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort and Spa and the chic Modern Honolulu boutique hotel offer uncompromised elegance with the added benefit of a more intimate location at the smaller but quieter Kahanamoku Beach.
Getting to Honolulu
Honolulu has become one of the most popular travel destinations for Australians due in part to the increasingly convenient flight connections on offer.
From Australia, Honolulu International Airport (HNL) is served by Qantas and Jetstar as well as Virgin Australia code share partner Hawaiian Airlines. These airlines provide direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Convenient one stop connections are also available on Air New Zealand via Auckland, and Fiji Airways via Nadi. Australians can even take advantage of one stop service from Cairns via the Pacific island of Guam on United Airlines.
Hawaii is the perfect gateway when travelling to North America. Instead of flying through the busy ports of Los Angeles or Dallas/Ft. Worth, consider a transfer through Honolulu. Enjoy a brief stop-over at the smaller, less congested airport for a through connection or make the most of your time and make the Pacific island part of your holiday.
Travel Associates can organise all of your travel needs. If continuing on to Asia or North America, ask your consultant about a multi-destination ticket and make Honolulu part of your holiday plans.
