Five Days Of Tropical Bliss
We left Seattle near the end of February with snow on the ground and the excitement of small children in a large toy store for the first time. Everything went smooth and easy at the airport and before we knew it we were in the air and on our way to Maui.
The flight itself was pleasant (Hawaiian Airlines makes the flight fun!) and went by quickly and when we stepped off that plane into the beautiful, warm Maui sunshine I truly thought I had died and gone to heaven! To say we had arrived in Paradise was an understatement!
We quickly got our luggage, into our shuttle and were on our way to Ka’anapali Beach and 5 days of pure tropical bliss. The scenery on the 40-minute drive to Ka’anapali Beach was stunning with turquoise blue waters and white sandy beaches, palm trees swaying slightly with the breeze, colorful tropical flowers and fields of sugar cane, all with the lush Maui mountains looming in the distance!
We stayed at the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel, considered to be Hawaii's "Most Hawaiian Hotel." The hotel and staff are committed to giving each guest a true hawaiian experience and daily classes are offered in hula, lei making, pineapple cutting, ukelele lessons and much more. The views from the hotel are simply fabulous!
