Hawaiian Vacations: Lanai in the Hawaii Islands

Posted by applespecials On June - 2 - 2011 ADD COMMENTS

Hawaii encompasses over 100 volcanic islands. Of the hundred Hawaiian Islands, there are eight that are main islands, of which Lanai is the sixth largest. The island of Molokai is to the north and Maui is located to the east. It is shaped like and apostrophe and it is known as the “Pineapple Island” because it used to be home to the world’s largest pineapple plantation when a large chunk of the island was bought by the Dole Food Company in 1922. In the past 20-30 years, the main focus of the “Pineapple Island” has shifted from being a pineapple plantation to a more tourism-focused economy. The island of Lanai offers a great place for a quiet, romantic getaway that is more private than the typical tourist crowds on the popular Hawaiian vacation destinations. That makes Lanaii the perfect spot for guests who want a Hawaiian vacation, but also want a little privacy and relaxation. Honeymooners will love this island. Many travelers purchase one of the all inclusive vacation packages that are available for this great location. Read the rest of this entry »

Hawaiian Islands

Hawaii is a volcanic island chain in the Pacific Ocean and the most recently accepted state in

 America. British explorer James Cook was the first European to discover Hawaii in 1778 and originally named it “The Sandwich Islands” after his financier John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich. It was an independent territory from 1894 until 1898, when it became a US territory. It was a territory during the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and eventually became the United States’ 50th state in 1959.

Today, Hawaii is home to over a million permanent citizens as well as guests and US military. The citizens of the island speak both English and the Hawaiian Language, descended from Polynesian dialects. Culturally, Hawaii is a blend of North American, Asian, and local influences that make up it radiant traditions and customs.

Over a hundred islands comprise Hawaii, though the most commonly known are the eight main islands, which are a bit larger. The main eight islands are Hawaii (The Big Island), Maui, Oahu, Kauai, Lanai, Molokai, Kahoolawe, and Niihau.

Climate

Hawaii has a tropical climate, though it is less humid than a typical tropical environment. Temperature highs consistently stay in the 80s year round. Hawaii really only has two seasons, the dry season from May to October and the wet season the remainder of the year. Snow can fall in some areas during the winter months up in the peaks of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa on The Big Island. Mount Wai’ale’ale on Kauai has the second highest rainfall per year on the planet, averaging 460 inches annually.

Tourism

Tourism is one of Hawaii’s main sources of revenue, with millions of visitors travelling to the island each year. Guests enjoy the climate, culture and relaxed atmosphere. English-speaking tourists especially appreciate the comfort and easiness of being able to communicate with the natives in their own language.

Tourist activities include snorkeling, surfing, scuba diving, whale watching, dining on local cuisine, entertainment based on native culture, and tours of the surrounding areas.

Best Time To Go

Honestly, Hawaii is lovely all year long. During the winter, the nights tend to be a little chillier, with temperatures in the sixties, but the days are always pleasant.

The waters of the Pacific Ocean off of Hawaii’s shores are particularly spectacular. They stay so warm that guests don’t even have to run while shivering back to a towel to dry; instead they can slowly bask in the sun’s rays.

It is possible to encounter rain storms from October to April, but they are usually just passing showers.

Rose Hall in Jamaica: The Ritz Carlton’s Fancy Resort, Mon!

Posted by applespecials On February - 24 - 2011 ADD COMMENTS

Nothing says “ritzy” like the Ritz Carlton. And nothing says “vacation” like Jamaica. So these two epic forces joined together and created a beautiful Caribbean resort called the Ritz Carlton Rose Hall.  Caribbean warmth is combined with Old World appeal to create this dazzling beachfront resort, open since 2000. Stretching along 500 feet of white sand beach and hidden within 5,000 acres of lush, private vegetation, the Ritz Carlton Rose Hall resort is prefect for an epic family Jamaica vacations.
The Fairest of Them All:
When good ol’ Christopher Columbus arrived at Montego Bay I the 1400s, he dubbed it “Golfo de Buen Tiempo” or “fair weathered gulf”. 600 years later the weather is still as fair as ever. The ocean breezes are warm and the Caribbean sunshine calls your name all day long. It’s truly perfect weather for the complimentary windsurfing and snorkeling. They even provide you with fins for your feet so you can snorkel through the water easier. Apple vacations are the best… hands down.
Rooms are accented with warm pallets of color and generous living spaces. Elegant decor in tropical hues of greens, plums, and aubergines is calming for the tired minds. Expect to find all the modern day conveniences, and then some. All 428 suites have private covered balconies, complete with stone columns. All 5 restaurants combine various cuisines with the traditional Ritz Carlton flare. I’ll have the fillet mignon with a heaping side of ocean views.
Come Here to Live Like Kings, Not Rockstars
The Ritz Carlton Rose Hall has strict family-friendly, anti party-like-a-rock-star policies… so feel free to have an awesome time, but make sure to keep it between the lines. This ain’t Spring Break in Cabo.
