Aloha and welcome to hulaland! If you’re planning a trip to Hawaii, you’ve come to the right spot. It can be pretty overwhelming (especially if you’re in the early stages of planning) so I’ve gathered all of my best resources for you right here. While you’ll find dozens and dozens of posts on Hawaii on this blog, this is the best place to start: the ultimate HAWAII TRAVEL GUIDE!
I also get so many questions about my go to websites and resources for planning my trips, so I’ve included my favorite resources as well. Some of these are affiliates (meaning I get a little percentage if you use them, although the price is the same for you), but as always, I only share stuff with you guys that I LOVE. Thanks for supporting the brands that make Hulaland possible!
Before you get very far into the planning process, you’ll want to check out these posts:
Before you even start looking at specific places to stay, you’ll want to know the lay of each island. Read these posts to help decide where you want to stay on the island plus my recommendations for specific resorts and hotels:
TripAdvisor: More than just for reading reviews (although, I never stay anywhere until I’ve read its TripAdvisor reviews), it’s a great site for booking and you’ll be sure you’re getting the best deals on resorts and hotels.
And personal travelogues (and reviews!) about the following properties:
Fairmont Orchid (Big Island)
Hilton Waikoloa Village (Big Island)
Fairmont Kea Lani (Maui)
Four Seasons (Maui)
Vrbo: Vrbo is my favorite platform for booking apartments, condos, and houses. If you like staying more “local” or just want more space or bang for your buck, you’ve got to check out Vrbo. Want specific recommendations for each island?
Skyscanner: Skyscanner is the best flight search comparison website out there. Save hours by checking ALL THE SITES for the very best deals.
Hawaiian Airlines: Hawaiian Airlines is my favorite airline to fly both to and from Hawaii as well as interisland. Sign up for their newsletter as they often run some good discounts on vacation packages.
Hawaii Discount Car Rental: This is the only site I ever book my rental cars through. You’re guaranteed the cheapest price across all the major providers, don’t have to pay until you pick the car up, and I always manage to add an extra driver for free.
There are soooo many things to do in Hawaii. Here are some of my favorite Hawaii adventures AND MORE…
