Are the islands your favorite vacation? You are not alone. Defining hospitality is what Hawaii is about–and there’s always something new going on. Luxury resorts just keep getting better, and the amenities, locations, golf and dining are unsurpassed. So here’s an update from the Convention and Visitors organization.

The Royal Hawaiian, A Luxury Collection Resort (O‘ahu), officially re-opened with its Pink Is the New Fabulous gala event on March 7. Celebrity event designer David Beahm coordinated the celebration that brought Hollywood celebrities to O‘ahu for the occasion and featured entertainment by Grammy-nominated trumpeter Chris Botti.

Events and Attractions : Soar through the Maui sky at heights up to 600 feet at Piiholo Ranch, which now features Hawai‘i’s longest zipline.
