Located at 6 hours flight from California and Tahiti, the Hawaiian Islands are known as the most isolated land on Earth.Since I was in California, I had the opportunity to pass by Maui – one of the Hawaiian Islands, and visit it over a 5 days stay.
This trip was planned last minute and it never crossed my mind to visit Hawaii when I left Malta to San Francisco.
But life is full of amazing surprises! I got invited all the sudden to a weekend gathering with friends from San Francisco and to assist to a FinTech conference, so here I am!
We got again lucky with the weather, as it was raining the week before we arrived!
During our stay, we got super warm and sunny days, perfect to enjoy the beach, the sea, and explore around. During the morning of our last day, we went with Pacific Whales Foundation to a whales watching. I truly recommend this unique experience!
Where to stay: I staid during 3 nights at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua, Maui and had the opportunity to explore entirely the resort and Spa. The majority of the pictures above were taken in the resort which has a private beach, several pools, hot jacuzzi, golf course and many restaurants to choose from. Our suite residence had stunning views to the ocean, the green vegetation and to the golf course (first picture).
We got a dinner at the BanyanTree and the food was really great! I got fresh tuna as a main and fruit with frozen mint for dessert (pictured above). A must-try!
I also recommend to take an afternoon (from 3 to 5) and enjoy the spa with a traditional Hawaiian Massage. You won’t regret it!
