Hotels are more important than restaurants and shops, and even adventure activities like canoeing and surfing lessons.These islands are dotted with world-class resorts. You’ll find sexy pools, stunning spas and rooms worthy of distracting you from the beaches (at least for a while).

There’s a reason why Halekulani, which means «House Worthy of Heaven» in Hawaiian, has been an Oahu institution for nearly 100 years.
