The Gathering Place


An island paradise where ancient culture meets modern luxury, and extraordinary activities await you within lush green mountains and clear azure waters.

Appropriately nicknamed “The Gathering Place,” Oahu is home to 70% of the entire population of the Hawaiian Islands. For decades Oahu’s tropical rainforests and white sand beaches have attracted visitors from around the world. The appeal lies not only in the exquisite landscapes but also in Oahu’s melting pot of cultures that will awaken your senses with unique cuisine, traditional music and dance, and scenic locales. Binding these ingredients together is the spirit of aloha that is steeped in the very essence of island life and will quickly make you feel part of the ‘ohana (family).

Oahu is also home to places like Iolani Palace, the only royal palace in the United States; the Bishop Museum, home to the world’s largest collection of Polynesian cultural artifacts; and the historic Pearl Harbor National Memorial. Whether you are looking to relax on the beach, hike through a rainforest to a waterfall, or learn about Hawaii’s rich culture and history, Oahu has something for everyone.
