Maui: Luxury Boomer Travelers’ Dream Come True?
Note: click image for a larger view
This is the view from the lanai of our ocean-view suite at the Fairmont Kea Lani in sunny Wailea, Maui.
It’s 10:30 in the morning, the morning sun is brilliantly illuminating all the colors of the resort below, and there’s a gentle breeze off the ocean. I can hear children happily splashing in a distant pool, while the adult pool is quietly accommodating those who prefer a more zen-like resort experience.
My senses are near overload as I take in the scene and busily work on my patio’s table. Yes, I’m working. Really. I am.
Of the 682,000 visitors who made their way to Hawaii in January of 2013, a full 30% of them came to the island of Maui, making Maui a perennial world favorite.
But why Maui?
Well, when you consider the tropical islands of the world; Maui offers travelers fantastic infrastructure with it’s direct-flight airport from many parts of the world, beautiful roads, world renown cuisine, beach-front resorts to fit nearly every budget, and within the span of two hours, you can be basking on a white sandy beach or standing atop the world at the world-famous volcanic crater, Mt. Haleakala.
The other great consideration is weather. Here on the sunny west-coast of Wailea, you are nearly assured of beautiful sunny skies all year long (Dec/Jan wettest months w/ only 2″/month), and temperatures that remarkably stay all-year-long between 80-87 degrees.
For those reasons, and a good deal more, Maui remains high on the radar for the world’s tropical island visitors, and also just might be a luxury baby boomer travelers’ dream come true.
So, if you don’t mind, I’m gonna put my feet up …ah….and work a little more. Really. I am. 🙂
