Big Island, Hawaii
“There are only two seasons on the Big Island: Summer, from May to October, is dry and temperate, with daytime temperatures hovering around 85 degrees. In so-called winter, temperatures drop around six degrees and rains are more common, especially in the eastern parts of the island around Hilo. May, September, and October might be the choicest months for the Big Island, as the weather is driest and the crowds are thin.” —Susan Tanzman, Trusted Travel Expert for Hawaii.
50th Anniversary Experience of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel
Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is marking its 50th anniversary throughout 2015. Paying tribute to the hotel's legendary Rockefeller pedigree and timeless charm, the year long celebration is appropriately themed, “What was, is.”
Tanzman, who visits the islands up to seven times a year, is best known for her pull-out-all-the-stops Hawaiian honeymoons (she booked more than 150 last year) and her connections at top resorts. She favors secluded properties and private, romantic sojourns (a catered dinner at a hidden waterfall, a sunset sail on a catamaran). As enthusiastic as she is choosy, Tanzman isn't shy about telling clients which restaurants have lousy food and which hotels have thin walls (price per day for two people: $400).
