Many of our staff didn’t originally start out living in paradise. Like millions of people before them, they spent one too many winters shoveling snow and scraping ice off their windshields. They’ve learned that once you experience one Maui Christmas in 2019, you’ll want to spend EVERY Christmas on Maui, avoiding the harsh realities of winter and welcoming palm trees, sunny days, and the soothing rhythm of the seas that surround the island. And because Christmas is a feeling everyone holds in their hearts, your holiday getaway to Maui during this festive season promises to be the most special one yet!
Although the properties we offer may not feature any outwardly festive décor, the feeling of Christmas shines bright throughout. Red wood cabinets in many and the green of the palm trees peeking in from the outside is just the start. The big screen television in the living areas offer the perfect spots to watch holiday movies as you munch on freshly baked Christmas cookies you whipped together in our fully equipped kitchens. Fill the soaking tubs to the brim, turn on some holiday tunes, and spend a good hour relaxing in a fragrant bubble bath; Christmas aromas can be purchased pretty much anywhere this time of year! And when the moon rises high on Christmas Eve, it’s not just your children who will be dreaming about Santa Claus.
Christmas activities on Maui are similar to those at home but with a few minor differences. Although we do have Christmas trees decorated in colorful twinkle lights, the lighting of the Banyan Tree in Lahaina is a much-loved tradition that will soon become your favorite as well. Holiday shopping at the Whaler’s Village offers gifts and surprises you just won’t find anywhere else in the world: Hawaiian shirts and dresses from Cariloha Bamboo, exotic pearls from Maui Diver’s Jewelry, or for someone who has been extra good, a little something from Louis Vuitton! Christmas luaus and whale watching expeditions are other options that prove your Maui Christmas is guaranteed to be one you never forget!
