Oahu Luxury Holiday Packages
Known as the “Gathering Place”, Oahu is the ultimate Hawaiian playground. From the cosmopolitan urban delights of Honolulu and chic ambiance of Waikiki to the giant waves and secluded beauty of the North Shore, Oahu has it all. Whether it’s taking a stroll down the elegant avenues in the city, hiking the ancient volcanic shell of Diamond Head or the bountiful mountain rainforests, or hitting one of the many flawless beaches for a day of fun in the sun, there is something for everyone on this extraordinarily diverse island of Hawaii.
Oahu is filled with history and culture too. Visit the solemn World War II monuments and museums at Pearl Harbor and learn about the tragic events of the ‘day that will live in infamy’. Tour the great palace of King Kamehameha, the only royal residence in existence in the United States. Of course a trip to Oahu wouldn’t be complete without taking in a traditional luau. Filled with music, hula performances and delicious Hawaiian cuisine, Oahu comes alive at these lively cultural festivals.
Where to stay in Oahu
Oahu is Hawaii’s most diverse island. With its major urban centre of Honolulu, its long and eclectic coast line and wide swaths of remote natural beauty, the accommodation scene here is, not surprisingly, quite varied.
If Honolulu is the pulsating heart of Oahu, then Waikiki is its nerve centre. This is Honolulu’s most glamorous area, where much of the hotel, shopping, dining and nightlife scenes are located. From luxury high-rise resorts and intimate boutique hotels to grand, historic properties with graceful five-star pedigree, there is no shortage of upscale accommodation here. Two of Honolulu’s most historic, and exclusive properties are the Moana Surfrider and the Royal Hawaiian. These landmarks have graced Waikiki beach from as far back as 1901 and offer a truly memorable experience.
Across the island, visitors will find secluded resorts, private condos and cottage rentals with sweeping coastal views or quiet rainforest settings of peaceful seclusion. Turtle Bay resort is one of Oahu’s most popular accommodation choices. Its stunning North Shore location offers brilliant ocean views, secluded beaches, golf course and an endless array of coastal tracks in which to enjoy.
