To celebrate the launch of Hawai‘i Tourism Oceania’s second annual Family Hawai‘i Guide one lucky ‘ohana (family) will have the chance to choose their own adventure and win a trip of a lifetime to O‘ahu and Hawai‘i Island (Big Island).
Hawai‘i Tourism Oceania (HTO) are giving away a Hawai‘i holiday for 2 adults and 2 children valued at over $10,000. The winners will experience four nights at Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikīkī Beach Resort on O‘ahu and four nights Hilton Waikoloa Village on Hawai‘i, the Big Island. They will have the opportunity to choose from one of four family-friendly experiences from being immersed in traditional Polynesian culture to taking in O‘ahu’s vibrant surf scene, discovering Hawai‘i’s unexpected cowboy culture on horseback or exploring an active volcano.
The Family Hawai‘i Guide makes holiday planning easy, assisting families in choosing the island and experiences that best suit their ‘ohana across the most popular Hawaiian Islands of O‘ahu, Kaua‘i, Maui and Hawai‘i Island. Whether it’s swimming with the Hawaiian green sea turtles, snorkelling with manta rays, hiking through canyons or rainforest, experiencing the local culture or relaxing on one of Hawai‘i’s beautiful beaches, Hawai‘i has it all.
With ‘ohana (family) at the very heart of Hawaiian culture, it’s not surprising that ‘destination Hawai‘i’ understands how to make families happy. From a world-class range of accommodation options perfectly designed for family groups, to an exhaustive list of family-friendly activities to suit all ages. “Keiki” is the Hawaiian word for “children” and many hotels and resorts will offer keiki programs that may include lei making, ukulele playing and hula lessons.
Ashlee Galea, Country Manager for Hawai‘i Tourism Oceania said “We have found that increasingly, family holidays to Hawai‘i are not only the traditional family unit. They are often multi-generational including grandparents, take the form of a family reunion or even include extended family members for the celebration of milestone occasions. Family travellers look for holidays that feature options that are flexible and appeal to both children and adults. They seek experiences that will create lifelong memories and the Hawaiian Islands are a truly remarkable destination which absolutely fit the bill.”
