It’s these winter months that draw my memory back to a time when I stayed at the Kapalua Resort, one of the top hotels in Maui. The resort consists of 22,000 luscious acres and is put right in the middle of one of Hawaii's largest nature preserves.
There were several white sandy beaches, two marine wildlife sanctuaries and two world famous golf courses, so it covers all the bases for singles, couples, or families looking for things to do.
While my family and I were there, we went to the Plantation House Restaurant, recommended by a friend that had already been.
She had told us to save it for late in our trip, bragging that none of the other places would compare afterward.
I shouldn't have doubted her as it was amazing, and of all the delicious meals, the Key Lime Pie left the most lasting impression.
