Hawaii removed all entry requirements for domestic travelers earlier this month, and their mask mandate officially ended on March 26th, 2022. These lessened restrictions, in addition to the islands’ tropical and serene charm, will likely make them a desirable destination for many travelers in the upcoming year. This list looks at seven excellent resorts on the Hawaiian islands to consider staying at for your next trip.
