Each of the Aloha State's seven inhabited islands offers something a little bit different, from big-city vibe of Honolulu/Waikiki on Oahu to the rustic back country of Molokai and Lanai. Agritourism and Hawaiian cultural tourism are also on the rise.

  • Dear Hawaii PR executive and/or luxury hotelier,

    My wife and I are travelling around the world on a 500-day honeymoon. In each region we visit we pick one luxury boutique hotel to partner with exclusively for said region. We post two articles per resort on Honeymoons.com as well as numerous social media posts across Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Foursquare, Instagram, YouTube, etc..and most importantly each partner becomes the exclusive resort in their respective region on Honeymoons.com for an entire year (at no cost to any party, 100% barter) - If anyone in this group represents a luxury hotelier/resort in Hawaii, we would love to talk more. Please drop us a line (MikeAnne@HoneyTrek.com) and we can answer any questions and forward over our formal proposal for your review.

  • Aloha! As of today, Honolulu's airport will begin broadcasting a welcome message in Hawaiian as well as English every half hour. This is a great step forward in the struggle to keep minority languages alive. Wouldn't it be cool to land in, say, Miami, and see welcome messages not only in English, Spanish, French, and German, but also Miccosukee?
