A holiday in Maui, the second biggest of the Hawaiian Islands, will truly captivate the imagination. Created by the sporadic flows of lava from thousands of vents over millions of years, the rugged landscape is juxtaposed by verdant shores of foliage and exquisite beaches.
Luxury Holidays in Maui
Maui holidays are the utter embodiment of paradisal scenes and luxurious surroundings. What's more here you can experience various Hawaiian cultural phenomenon such as hula, a traditional form of dance imported by the Polynesians and developed over time under Western influences in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
You’ll hear the high tones of a plucking ukulele reverberating behind you as the dancers’ hips create an undulation of the pā’ū – or, wrapped skirt – reminiscent of the ebb and flow of the tide in the distance.

Things to do Whilst on Holiday in Maui
On the Hāna Highway – a 68-mile stretch of road – you’ll open up amazing panoramic views along the coast and unlock hidden natural wonders like waterfalls and other attractions.
Set in over 30,000 acres, the Haleakalā National Park is a must see for visitors. Trek to the summit – the Haleakalā Crater – which is 2 miles wide and 2,600 ft deep! Whether you come to this serene spot in the morning or evening, you’ll get an equally stunning sunrise or sunset. If images of seemingly vast and arid volcanic rock reaching into the clouds doesn’t do it for you, check out the Kipahulu section where you can swim in one of the natural pools below cascading waters caressing the regions’ rock formations.
For a great night out pay a visit to Front Street in Lahaina, where you can get a bite to eat before partaking in some local entertainment. There’s a lively atmosphere on Front Street, and it will soon be evident that it’s the epicentre of Maui nightlife.
