When you arrive in Paradise, will it look like this? Will the sun be shining? Will he weather be warm? Will the breeze be cool? Will the air be fresh? Will the roads be clear? Will the people be nice? Will you Receive a flower lei? Will someone offer you aloha? Will everyone be smiling? Will you begin relaxing right away? Will you anticipate all the fun your about to have? Will you consider snorkeling or scubaing in the ocean? Will you plan on biking down the steepest 10,000 foot road rising from summit to sea? Will you explore the lava fields? Will you golf? Will you let go of all your cares? Will you laugh loudly and deeply? Will you smile at a stranger? Will you kiss someone you love? Will you feel gracious? Will you dine at world class restaurants? Eat Sashimi? Watch Kiteboarders? Sail board yourself? Or maybe boogie board? Or undress at little beach? Will you take in a Luau? Or a world class show at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center? Or see films under the stars in Wailea? What else will you do? How else will it be?
We don’t know exactly how it will be or what you will do but we know why Maui is called paradise. We know why Maui is called “No Ka Oi”. We know why Conde Nast declares Maui the best island in the world year after year after year. That’s why we live here. And that’s why you come.
