lucky we live hawaii

(right outside my hotel room in kona)

our buddy Ian always keeps on reminding us that we are lucky to live in hawaii by posting his sunset pics. he's right! we are really lucky.

there are so many reason why i love living in hawaii. as i was looking through some pictures, i was reminded of one reason. i really like to play tourist and stay at hawaii's nice hotels. its kinda like going on vacation without having to leave the island. for some reason its really refreshing to watch the sunset from my fancy hotel room.

here are some of our favorite island hotels:
  • halekulani - really nice hotel rooms, great service and lots of very good food.
  • kahala resort (formally the mandarin) - swim with dolphins, free scuba lessons, and a secluded beach
  • ihilani - huge rooms, huge bathrooms, jacuzzi rooms, friday hula show
  • hilton hawaiian village (alii tower) - free sunset pupus, great service, good views
  • turtle bay - nothing to do except relax

    (some of my hotel pics)

    there are some tips and tricks to doing this. for example, try the turtle bay escape club, its a lower than kamaaina price. or try the spa room at at ihilani, it is awesome (and is not very well known). playing tourist is a lot of fun!

    yup, i agree... Lucky we live Hawaii
