Hilton Hawaiian Village

We’ve arrived. After a short flight from LA, we landed in Oahu and spent the first day at Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki Beach. Exploring the grounds, we discovered two pools, a lagoon, the beach, and Bali Steak & Seafood. Today was just a taste of some of the amazing amenities here at Hilton, but stay tuned for a more in-depth look at what they have to offer. For now, I’ll show you some of the highlights.  Continue reading

Some “Wow” Photos from Waikoloa

Sunset at Hilton Waikoloa Village

Hawaii is Utopia, a society possessing perfect qualities, and Hilton Waikoloa Village upped my level of “wow”. As I explored the grounds, I was awestruck by the kind of beauty that isn’t used to describe a place; it’s reserved for something special like a child or a lover. It’s the kind of beauty that makes you wonder why you’d live anywhere else. Rather than trying to describe it, I want to show you. Pictures can’t do this kind of beauty justice but I’ve tried to capture a glimpse of it and you can fill in the rest with your imagination.  Continue reading

Sunrise or Sunset at Hilton Waikoloa Village

The Hilton Waikoloa Village offers some of the most spectacular views that I’ve ever experienced in my life. From sunrises to sunsets, the views are all postcard worthy.

This morning I captured a sunrise from my hotel room and last night a captured a sunset. I can’t decide which one brings me more happiness. I just keep looking at both of them. The sunrise experience was accompanied by birds singing, ocean waves lapsing on the shore, and playful dolphins whistling and clicking outside our window. We were able to experience all of that from our balcony while still in our pajamas. The sunset, though, was accompanied by a romantic stroll alongside the ocean, a light breeze against our faces, and the soft sound of music from Kamuela Provision Company (KPC) restaurant. Don’t pinch me because I don’t want to wake up.
