Koolina, Hawaii

Sunday, July 7, 2013

It has been a while since I've done a post about my LOVELY home state, Hawaii.  So today - I figured I'd give you all a little glimpse of a place I'm fortunate to call home and one of it's famous destinations for locals and tourists alike, Koolina.

 Koolina is a "mini town" if you will - offers three different resorts, vacation rentals, as well as residential living.  Some of the best restaurants on the island can be found there as well as four public man made lagoons (separate) from the hotel resort lagoons, the best (personal opinion) luau show on the island, golfing, snorkeling, dolphin experiences and many other things.

The Aulani has an amazing buffet at the Makahiki Restaurant.  If it is in your budget, you have to pay Roy's Restaurant a visit (their butterfish is out of this world)!  And if you want a taste of the islands (local style) as far as vibes and relaxing over food go - head down to Monkeypod Kitchen.
The Koolina lagoons are perfect for novice swimmers or families with small children.  The lagoons were constructed with big rock "blockers" to break up the waves that roll in so the water in the lagoon remains relatively calm and peaceful.

  1. Such lovely, lovely photos! And I love how peaceful those lagoons are. They are the perfect place to relax with family :)

  2. You are making me miss Hawaii. My husband and I just moved from Laie to South Korea. We love Ko'olina, esp. Roy's and The Monkeypod. -Alex @Our Lives Are An Open Blog

  3. Oh I love Ko olina! One of my favourite memories there is I took my youngest while my eldest was in school for his third birthday. It was just us and we played in the sand and the water and had a fun morning just the two of us. It is such a great place if you have kids. Really homesick now. ;) Thank you for linking up with Belinda and I for #TravelTuesday and I hope to see you again next week!
