Hawaii itself is exotic, but if you dig a little deeper you’ll discover the truly unusual places to stay in Hawaii. What many find most striking about Hawaii is its tropical beach scene, but what about the lush rainforests of Kauai, the rocky volcanic coastline of Big Island or the wide, open country sides of Maui? It is the unique within the unique that makes for an unforgettable getaway, and believe us when we say, Hawaii is the best place to find this!

Many visitors wish to see the popular parts of Hawaii; Waikiki beach, Lahaina, Maui, Poipu, Kauai… but there is so much more to each of these islands than their trendy destinations.
