I've been meaning to sit down and write you guys since we got back, but it's been quite a week! Our flight home was canceled, so we ended up having to stay another night in Kona (not at the Mauna Kea unfortunately, and then both Paul and I got sick. Anyway, we had an amazing time on the Big Island, and we absolutely loved the Mauna Kea! The room was fabulous, we didn't want to leave! We literally only left the hotel to do a helicopter tour and to eat at Sansei.:) Other than that, we hung around the beach at the hotel, and ate at all of the restaurants, which were all great. Thank you all so much again for your help in booking the accommodations, and for the wonderful upgraded room. Both Paul and I agreed it was probably the nicest room we've ever stayed in... I definitely hope to go back!
We wanted to thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip for our honeymoon. Your hotel selections, event suggestions, dinner recommendations, and all the little secrets along the way really made this special trip even more memorable. After speaking with you, it was obvious that you knew exactly the type of experience that we wanted, and we could not be happier. More than just a collection of hotels and things to do, it felt like our experience had a trajectory and all we had to do was sit back and enjoy the ride. Doesn't hurt that the ride involved swimming with wild dolphins and spotting whales, private dining at sunset, and hidden black sand beaches.
We especially loved Mauna Kea Beach Hotel; it promises to be the first vacation place we go back to rather than trying something new. Being from Chicago we hate to admit this, but that hidden pizza place you keyed us in to was damn good, especially after an all day hike through some of the most beautiful landscapes we have ever seen. We can't thank you enough for helping make this a trip we will never forget. We'd love to work with you again.
