Summer’s coming to a screeching halt, so now’s your last chance to cash in on those vacation days and soak in some of 2016’s final summer rays! And, of course, the best way to do that is by renting a private jet and waving goodbye to the continent as you whisk yourself away to Hawaii.
Full of history, tradition, and culture, Hawaii is not your average island getaway. Unlike most island destinations that lack any local identity, Hawaii always presents the opportunity to travel off of the beaten path, see something seldom seen, and make it back home in time for dinner. Generations of Hawaiians pass down legends, superstitions, and customs to their children; then they weave them surreptitiously into every facet of life.
You’ll see notes for visitors, warning against taking home volcanic rocks as souvenirs – less you anger the Goddess Pele. You’ll hear native Hawaiian words weaved into everyday speech, and you’ll see locals throw up shaka signs whenever something awesome happens. It’s this culture that still thrives in the islands, and makes Hawaii a premier luxury destination. A land of enclaves, hidden waterfalls, constant rainbows, and frothing volcanoes, Hawaii takes the word “vacation” to new heights.
From boutique 11-room Hotel Lanai in Lanai City to the Four Seasons Resorts on every island, there’s no limit to the lodging experiences one can have in the islands. Yet, some options are more worth mentioning than others. In honor of summer’s end, Air Charter Advisors has compiled a list of the absolute best places to stay in Hawaii, so read on and see how long you can last before calling to book your luxury private flight to Hawaii!
When it comes to Honolulu hotels, nothing comes close to the understated, elegant Halekulani. Despite its prime Waikiki Beach location, the beautiful, whitewashed property remains remarkably Zen-like thanks to the lush gardens that surround it.Its newly renovated guest rooms are refreshingly low-key, with neutral décor that allows the ocean views to steal the show. The hotel’s most remarkable feature? Its beachfront freshwater pool with an orchid made out of 1.2 million pieces of blue glass at its center.2199 Kalia Rd, Honolulu, HI 96815

St. Regis Princeville
Located on the exclusive North Shore of Kaua’i, the St. Regis Princeville slides into first place in nearly every list of similar topic on the internet. This is the type of resort that makes the outside world seem like a distant memory. Here private jet travelers can enjoy limitless skies filled with white birds passing by like strings of pearls, and rocky formations that reach for the stars and then shy away to form deep ravines. Their landscapes changing before eyes can settle and acclimate to them, the thousands of acres owned by the St. Regis are fickle. So book a week there, or stay for longer; either way, your eyes will never get used to the beauty.St. Regis is generally considered to be the most upscale lodging option in the Hawaiian Islands. It offers several amenities that set it above the rest, including Five Star dining, a top-tier golf course with stunning views, and generously appointed multi-room suites.5520 Ka Haku Rd, Princeville, HI 96722
