As the world is opening up the travel bug is certainly kicking in for some. While not everyone may be ready to travel internationally, thankfully, here in the United States, we are so fortunate as to have two diverse domestic travel options to visit without ever having to reach for your passports. Look no further than our very own Hawaii or Alaska.
While Hawaii was closed the majority of the pandemic, it recently has successfully reopened to visitors and is ready to welcome you with a big Aloha! If you have been waiting a year to travel, this is the tropical escape you’ve been yearning for. The Hawaiian Islands truly has it all, pristine beaches, soft adventure excursions like hiking, boating/sailing, snorkeling, helicopter sightseeing, whale watching, and golf to name just a few. I can help plan the perfect trip to kickstart your return to travel and you could soon be sitting poolside cocktail in hand adorned with a teeny tiny umbrella;-)
Of course, I could get you VIP’d at some of my favorite properties there. The Mauna Lani Auberge on the Big Island recently reopened after a multi-million dollar renovation – and is absolutely stunning. They are also running some incredible offers including a 4th night free, and unlimited golf packages that I would be pleased to arrange for you. If you are headed to Kauai, the Grand Hyatt not only sits on a lovely beach but also has a saltwater lagoon replete with quiet nooks and secret caves.. For Maui visitors, the Maui Andaz and Four Seasons Maui are both wonderful options for couples or families and I would be happy to arrange your accommodations at either property with all the extra perks.
If you are dreaming of a US safari and love the great outdoors over hanging at the beach, a trip north to Alaska could be the perfect adventure for you. Whether you head up in the Summer or early Fall, there is abundant wildlife to see and excursions to take. Explore the glaciers, discover the charm of the local cities, observe the bears hunting for salmon (from a safe distance of course) world-class flyfishing, kayaking, or even chase the Northern Lights you could experience all that Alaska has to offer. There are even some small ship adventure cruises in the region.
For accommodations in Alaska, while the summer months are booking quickly, I can still help you get the best deals in The Last Frontier State. The Stillpoint Lodge, Tutka Bay Lodge, and Winterlake Lodge are all high-end lodging options that still feel like a luxurious escape. These properties all capture the wild essence of Alaska and are inspired by the local landscape and culture. These rooms and the land excursions are booking up quickly for the upcoming season, so the time to book is now!
If you are ready to get off the mainland and head to Hawaii or Alaska, please feel free to reach out. The sooner the better as space is going fast. I can ensure the best possible experience for you and look forward to planning your trip soon!
