The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki
I have been traveling with The Ritz-Carlton for a while now for work and it is always a dream. This was my first time staying at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki for a short holiday and I was blown away. Our space definitely felt like home. A chef’s kitchen. An extra large balcony with ocean views. Baths that make you never want to leave the tub. Beds that make getting rest exciting. This is a place where I would go to bed early, and wake up before sunrise. I just wanted to savor every single, delicious moment. I miss doing yoga on our balcony and being cuddled up with family in the cabana after a long session in the hot tub. Unplugged, connected to the earth, and more present. That’s what Hawaii really represents to me. It’s a place with true love for our beautiful planet. It happened to be Mama and Papa’s 35th wedding anniversary so it was the perfect time to celebrate, Hawaiian style. Getaways are meant to be meaningful and The Ritz-Carlton always makes it extra special. The pandemic has made me appreciate travel and exploration more than ever. That feeling of exhaling the moment you land in a new place. I will never take jet lag and restlessness on the plane for granted again.
