Oahu's Most Luxurious Experiences

Whether you've booked a ticket to Oahu with money to burn or if you've diligently saved your pennies for the ultimate island experience, the Gathering Isle has an abundance of splurge-worthy options for you to explore. Between visiting historical sites like Pearl Harbor and Iolani Palace or beach bumming at some of the island's best beaches, carve out some time for a little indulgence. 

In Waikiki, shop through luxury boutiques or stop for dinner at an oceanfront eatery. Those looking for exciting nightlife can relax in poolside cabanas and sip their cocktail of choice. Minutes away, the quiet Kahala Hotel & Resort offers private spa treatments and special dolphin adventures. Just outside of Waikiki, sushi lovers can roll the dice with a hand-selected coursed dinner. 

Looking for outdoor excitement? Rent a charted yacht and sail throught the Pacific or book a private helicopter tour and see the island from a birds-eye view. For a little sport and sweat, head to the windward side and play a round of golf at one of the most challenging, yet beautiful courses in the world. 

Or, if you're simply looking to get away from it all, head 17 miles from Waikiki and relax in the man-made lagoons of the beautiful Ko Olina Beach Villas Resort. By the end of your vacation leave the island with the comfort of knowing you've gotten the best out of your island vacation.
