The 10 Splurges You Deserve on Oʻahu

Treat yourself to the best of the best on Oʻahu, also known as the Gathering Place. 

Oʻahu is home to Hawaiʻi’s bustling state capital, Honolulu. The cosmopolitan blend of culture and art makes Honolulu a wonderful, and often luxurious, place to experience the islands. 

It’s time to cross Hawaiʻi off your bucket list and, while you do that, we recommend splurging a little as well. Many one-of-a-kind, exclusive items can only be found on Oʻahu. 

Shimmering Pendants
The beauty of Polynesia is often reflected in the bounty that comes from the Pacific Ocean. Delicate pearls, seashells and ocean-inspired jewels drape from the hands, wrists and necklines of island women. Rare and unique pendants and exclusive necklaces will last forever and remain a treasure from your travels. Koa Nani Multi-Colored Pearl Necklace $5,800

Taste of the Islands: Chocolate
Few can say they’ve tasted the rare and exotic cacao from Oʻahu’s North Shore. For chocolate lovers, specialty truffles, unique chocolates and high-quality Hawaiian-grown candies are prized. Indulge and savor an assortment of all the goodies for yourself, your loved ones and for later. Malie Kai Spring Truffle Box Chocolates $59.85 includes four-piece truffle box, three chocolate bars and two tote bags
