3 Easy Ways to Plan
a Mindful Hawaii Trip

Travel mindfully and take a trip that gives back

Volunteer to make a difference


Volunteer to
make a difference

The relationship between people and place grows stronger every time you malama (give back), creating a circle that enriches everything and everyone, including your experience as a visitor. Volunteering to cultivate a lo‘i kalo, or taro patch, will connect you to the history and the ingredients you can enjoy throughout your trip.

Pack reef safe sunscreen


Pack reef safe sunscreen

Hawaii was the first state to prevent bleaching of coral and other damage to the islands' ocean habitat by prohibiting sunscreen that contains harmful chemicals. Bring reef-safe sunscreen to protect the ocean's fragile ecosystem, or enjoy the Project Reef sun care line as a new complimentary amenity poolside.
