In this post, I wrote about how night viewing of Halemaumau Crater from the Jaggar Museum is a must see when visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. This isn’t the only place to get a great view of the crater at night. Michelle and I were fortunate to stay at the famous Volcano House. This unique lodge is the only one of its kind within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The lodge is located on the edge of Kilauea Volcano, and offers a stunning viewing area of Halemaumau Crater.
For my 32nd birthday, my wife Michelle swept me away to Maui’s luxurious Grand Wailea. The Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, is known for its winding paths, world-renown collection of art, and open-air architecture.
We arrived in Maui late in the evening, and by the time we reached the the Grand Wailea, it was already dark. The first thing that catches your eye is a large sweeping waterfall to the right of the main lobby. To the left, is a large statue of King Kamehameha by local legend, Herb Kane. Both Michelle and I were eager to jump out of our Dodge Charger to check out what the resort had to offer. I was especially excited to see what our room looked like.
