My Trip to Hawaii

It's been a little bit since my last post, because the hubby and I took a little trip to Oahu, Hawaii.  We had such an enjoyable and relaxing time, I can't wait to go back.  We stayed at The Kahala Hotel & Resort  and I absolutely loved it.  The hotel has a very luxurious feel to it but in a laid back kinda way, which I think is the perfect combination for a Hawaiian vacation.

A few years ago we took our first trip to Oahu and stayed right on Waikiki Beach at the Moana Surfrider.  The hotel was lovely but Waikiki was just too crowded for us.  So this time we chose the The Kahala because it is only about a 15 minute drive away but so much quieter and calmer.  An added bonus of staying at The Kahala is that they have dolphins, sea turtles, and stingrays right on site by the pool.  I spent so much time just watching them swim around and play every day.

We ate breakfast every day and a few other meals at the hotel and they were all delicious.  Every evening they serve dinner and cocktails at The Veranda accompanied by live music.  The music was great and while the menu was pretty limited the food was still very tasty.  

We ventured down to Waikiki a few times for meals, shopping, and to check out the Honolulu Festival.  We stopped by the craft fair, watched a couple performances, and then stayed for the parade Sunday evening.  The parade traveled down the entire Waikiki strip and was very entertaining and different from any parade I have seen back home.


There really is a lot to do and see on Oahu including tea! Yes, there is tea to be had all over Oahu, but this post is getting a little longer than expected so I will have to save the best part for another day...
