Hawaii: 5 Luxurious Beach Resorts

Upgrade Your Hawaiian Vacation

Not all beaches are created equal. This is a fact you will quickly realize when you step onto the shores of Hawaii, where sun-splashed strands lined with colorful beach bars and intimate coves on the edge of shady jungles await on each island. Watching the crystal blue waters of the South Pacific lap at the glistening colored sands of these beaches is nearly a religious experience.

To help you find the ideal beachside resort, here are 5 SELECT Hotels & Resorts properties that are located on some of the islands’ most sublime stretches of sand and sea. In addition to their luxurious settings, each property will provide you with the special bonus amenities that come with booking through Vacation: up to $100 VIP hotel amenity, complimentary breakfast for 2, free Wi-Fi and more.
