Culture Comes First For This Hawaiian Hotel

The Hawaiian islands have long held one of ISLAND's top spots in our rankings of best places to live or visit. But let's face it: Getting there can seem just a little too expensive to some travelers, especially in a rocky economic recovery. So when we spot a good deal, we like to crow a little about it. Ka'anapali Beach Hotel in Maui is touring what it calls "an enriched cultural experience," offering a variety of ways for guests to enjoy the Hawaiian culture. Among the activities: nightly hula show and lessons, traditional songs performed by staff during meals, kids activities, lei making and more. Plus, room packages start at just $166 a night. Your wallet is starting to feel the ho'okipa (hospitality) right about now, isn't it?
