With palms gently swaying in the cool island breeze and the sound of waves gently crashing on the shore, relaxation is not hard to find here in Hawaii. The holiday season is finally winding down and we are all looking forward to one last hurrah of the season. So what better way to start the New Year than on a Maui vacation, right?
For those looking to kick off 2018 with a bang, the resort districts and surrounding areas are famous during this time of year for their firework shows. No permits are required by those watching unless you are looking to create your own festive light show, making this perfect for visiting spectators! And luckily for our Kahana Village guests, the nearest resort area is just a quick 5 minute drive away.
If you are looking to snag a bite to eat while you wait for the midnight hour, we recommend calling ahead for reservations and wait times. There are a number of restaurants hosting holiday specials but their availability might be in limited quantities. You could even start the New Year with a completely different perspective and watch the island light up from a panoramic view on the ocean with a NYE Dinner and Cocktail Cruise. There are a number to choose from but be sure to also reserve ahead, they sell out almost every year!
Should you opt for a more quiet evening, your West Maui vacation rental will prove to be the perfect oasis to spend the transition into 2018. With a fully-equipped kitchen and other resort-like amenities, this private complex offers the opportunity to enjoy an ono (delicious) meal without the long wait lines. Watch a fiery sunset from the comfort of the spacious lanai, hopefully with cocktail in hand, and you might just glimpse the firework show off in the distance but thankfully without the loud noise.
With just a few days left of 2017, we at Kahana Village would like to extend a warm mahalo (thank you) to each and every one of our guests that have chosen our 2 and 3 bedroom condo villas! We are excited to see what the New Year has in store and we hope to see you guys again in 2018!
