My husband and I are planning our 1st visit to BI in Aug 2012 for 2 weeks, We have just returned from 3 days Maui ( Royal Lahaina ) and 7 days Oahu ( Turtle Bay ). Both fantastic and we are looking for something of a similar standard but not a resort. Our main wish list is for a beach hotel with sea view rooms, great sunsets, close to a choice of eateries and because we are travelling from the UK not more than 1 to 11/2 hrs from the airport. At this early stage I am not sure which is the destination airport. We both enjoy drives ( not scary high narrow roads ) to see as much as poss of the Island. If the budget for accom is good then we plan to buy a few guided tours too. Our budget is appx $150 to $250 per night (room price)
Also does anyone know the name of the song heard a lot in Oahu
included in the lyrics 'from the mountains to the sea' and ' on these islands? This grew on me and can't get the litlle bit I know out of my head. Mahalo and look forward to reading tips etc.
