For centuries, people have visited the islands of aloha for basically the same reasons: vibrant beaches, verdant mountains, lively volcanoes and ancient culture. Yet that doesn’t stop this American slice of paradise from trying to improve itself. Here are the latest enhancements that will have travelers returning to live the island life.

Molokai Now More Accessible – There are no mega-resorts on friendly, little Molokai island, which has long been an attraction to backpackers and snorkelers who could brave the long ferry ride. Thankfully, Mokulele Airlines has introduced new routes to the island from both Oahu and Maui, opening up this unspoiled island to a new generation of travelers.

Resorts – Multi-million dollar renovations are happening across the islands, adding luxury, space and style to such popular resorts as Maui’s Hotel Wailea and Grand Wailea, A Alwadorf Astoria Resort, and Oahu’s Spa and Turtle Bay Resort and Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort, the latter of which will add an on-site apiary to house 80,000 honey-producing bees.

Attractions & Activities – The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center is now offering the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park as a new offsite venue for groups, where your event could also include exclusive access to the USS Arizona Memorial’s two museums and theaters. At the recently-opened Maui Hawaiian Village, you can learn how native Hawaiians have thrived for generations. And the always-dazzling Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art just opened the Mughal Suite at Shangri La to the public for the first time, showcasing private living quarters inspired by the Taj Mahal.
