Maui-The Valley Isle
On a side note we recently visited the Island of Maui, staying for three nights at the Westin Maui Resort and Spa in a Ocean Tower view room on the tenth floor, so as not to have our view blocked by a palm tree. From the lanai (balcony) you could clearly see the ocean, swimming pools below and all the happenings below. We ate breakfast daily at the Relish Burger Bistro, eating from a buffett style assortment of foods that were excellent and very tasty. Pulehu, an Italian Grill located at the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas, a short 4 minute drive from the Westin Maui served us an excellent fish dinner on the second night we were there. I would certainly suggest you visit this restaurant and have dinner there. The deserts we also excellent.
Ah, the magic of Maui… is it any wonder that the humpback whales choose Maui as part of their annual migratory route? Last February the crew at Maui Vacation Packages/Aloha Packages took a 14 person inflatable raft and whale watched. It's a must do on your Maui Vacation.
