The Land of Volcanos and Body Positive Hula Dancers
I ventured out to Hawaii which inspired a collage full of authentic culture and understated luxury.
"If you could go anywhere in the world for your next vacation, where would it be?" During an oceanside dining experience at the impeccable Hawaiian island resort of Haualalai, it is not unordinary to overhear a family in deep conversation discussing their ideal destinations over their fresh seafood fare - the latest five star awarded hotels in Italy or the Isle of France, or the highly acclaimed safari site in Tanzania, or perhaps the boundary pushing wellness hideaways in the depths of Asia - the names mentioned are amongst the most above and beyond properties, the creme of the crop in vacation options.
Each family member, no matter their generation, have sharp and educated arguments for their choices - this family was not only well traveled but understood the meaning of authentic luxury.
This family represents the quintessential patron of Hualalai, the lavish oceanfront resort community spanning 865-acres located on the exclusive Kona-Kohala coast of the Hawaii Island. Now owned by Austin Billionaire Michael Dell's MSD Hospitality, the amenity filled residential resort with award winning golf courses, spas, dining and state of the art facilities and programming, plays host to vacation dream homes, villas, and the lauded Four Seasons Resort Hualālai.
