Away from the buzz of Honolulu and Waikiki, a stay at the 4-star Marriott Ko Olina Beach Vacation Club affords guests some peace and quiet on a private beachfront cove along Oahu's southwestern shore (with some of the best weather on the island).
The villas sprawl across sixteen floors (opt for a room on a higher level for unobstructed views) within a private gated community giving the grounds a rather exclusive air. Elegant interiors grace the one-, two- and three-bedroom condos, the largest of which sleeps up to ten. There's plenty of space for families, and units have full kitchens and nice views.
With tropical cocktail in-hand, wind past waterfalls, slides and tunnels to the sandy-floored pool, then retire to one of the seven hot tubs just before dusk to catch the sunset over the west-facing beach. A series of saltwater lagoons enclosed by lava rocks are carved out the of the coastline, and the one in front of the hotel is uncrowded and a prime for swimming since it is protected from the waves.
Every Tuesday night after sunset, fire-knife dancers grace the sands at the Fia Fia Luau and is worth the $95 ticket price. Other days, opt for poolside dining under thatched-roofed cabanas at Nai'a restaurant. For nightlife or a change of scene, Honolulu is a 30-minute drive away.
