When the entire continental United States is enduring a cold spell, the popular thought would be to leave it all behind and relax in the warmth of Hawaii. Member Sue T. spent time at the Ka’anapali Beach Club in Maui a few weeks ago and it was as you’d imagine: perfection. She shares with us her first Hawaiian and Global Discovery Vacations experience in this week’s Member Monday.
Where would you recommend a fellow member to go for:
The lanai outside of your condo is perfect. Ours had a view of the pool area which was beautiful and the ocean behind that. Enjoyed the mimosas!
Take a picnic or cooler to the beach – tons of lovely spots just outside of the resort.
LaHaina Grill – great wine list and bar tenders were wonderful. Roy’s at the Whaler’s Village also.
Old Lahaina, really enjoyed the art galleries.
To have fun/attractions:
Rent a car and drive the road to Hana. Beautiful drive and tons of great places to stop along the way.
What was your favorite:
The beach, great white sand, beautiful views and comfortable lounge chairs.
Condominium Amenity or Room:
Six brand new gas grills and picnic tables. Perfect for a sunset BBQ.
Place to go in the destination:
Haleakala National Park – the peak for the sunrise was awe inspiring.
Why did you choose this destination?
Our first but not last trip to Hawaii.
Who did you travel with, family or friends?

What was your favorite memory of your vacation?
Days we spent just driving the coast line. Snorkeling off the beach of the resort. Beautiful fish and giant sea turtles were plentiful.
