5 Tips for Planning Your Girlfriend Getaway to Maui

An escape to paradise is always pure bliss, but being accompanied by your closest girlfriends can make the trip that much more memorable.  Hana is the perfect place to grab your favorite gals, relax on the beach with an icy drink in hand, or go explore the gorgeous tropical terrain.  Here are 5 steps to making the most of your vacation with your closest girlfriends.

  • Plan it Out Ahead of Time - Sure, every vacation needs a little spontaneity, but when you bring together a group of women, all with differing opinions, you may find it hard to agree on the day’s activities.  Talk about what interests you ahead of time, whether it be getting a massage that incorporates traditional Hawaiian techniques, or maybe exploring a rushing waterfall.  If you have a basic plan, you can optimize your time…or you can split up the group for part of the day to make all parties happy.
  • Budget, Baby - Are you staying overnight at the stunning Travaasa Hotel Hana, or are you opting for a more economical lodging option?  All inclusive accommodations, or just a place to crash?  Fine dining every night, or quick bites from roadside stands on the winding Road to Hana?  Talking about your trip budget with your girlfriends ahead of time will help ensure that everyone feels comfortable with the money being spent, and you can focus less on dollar signs and more on your time together.
  • Invest in a Good Camera - You’ve got your closest girlfriends having fun in the Hana sun – you’ll want to capture all the memories and gorgeous vistas.  Make sure you have a nice digital camera that can freeze all these wonderful moments for you to go back and reflect on.
  • Coordinate Wardrobes – No, we’re not talking about wearing matching magenta bikinis while frolicking on the beach, but it may be a good idea to chat about the type of clothes you’ll be packing.  If Emma goes super casual in shorts and tees, but Stacy is rocking her pearls and heels, it could make for an awkward night out.  Best get it all out on the table.
  • Have a Blast – When you hop on that plane to head to Hana, make a promise to yourself and to your friends that you are going to leave your stress and worries at the airport terminal on the mainland.  Take this time to decompress, relax, unwind and have a fabulous time!  Maybe you start your vacation with a spa treatment, or a calming walk on the beach.  Whatever it is, make sure that you enjoy every minute in paradise.
