Hawaiian Paradise and the Aloha Spirit

Hawaiian Paradise and the Aloha Spirit

The Hawaiian paradise of Waikiki showed World Travel clients Jennifer Robles and Valerie Gomez the true Aloha spirit.

Wow, what a trip to a Hawaiian paradise!  Everything was wonderful.  I’ll start with our car that picked us up at the house, which Heidi had booked (Shuttle to LAX) and we had a private car…awesome!  The driver was prompt, professional and very pleasant.  We began the trip in style feeling like the Kardashians!

The Aqua Palms Hotel was great.  It was in the middle of Waikiki and close to everything!  We received a wonderful surprise upgrade to the 15th floor so we had a view of the City, Diamond Head, and a little of Waikiki Beach – awesome!  The hotel staff was very friendly and informative.

Germaine’s was Luau fun and we had a blast!  I would recommend it — it was family style which made it even better.  They do their best to make you feel like Ohana (family)!  I was told by some friends that the location was not good, but I thought it was great…right on the beach.  We have some great pictures of the sunset!  The bus drivers were great too.  They made the ride so much fun and were very organized too.  My mother in law paid for my wife’s family to join us at the luau as a nice surprise!  It was so great to have our Ohana join us at the last minute and they also had a wonderful time!

My wife and I had a beautiful beach wedding at Waialae Beach and it was amazing!  It was the only day it rained and we had the most beautiful rainbow appear during our ceremony!  All of the Hawaiians were telling us that rain was good luck and a blessing.  Once we got on the sand, it stopped raining a bit, just a very light drizzle and a rainbow appeared.  The ceremony was beautiful and we had dinner at Tiki’s Bar and Grill in Waikiki.  I would recommend that place, very fun and casual atmosphere!

We ended our trip at Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa.  It was truly another paradise on earth there, so beautiful!  We want to go back to the Hawaiian paradise soon and it was worth every penny!

We used another private car with Shuttle to LAX for the trip home from the airport and again, the driver was prompt and professional.  Since it was late, we drove straight home with no traffic and thank goodness Heidi recommended the later flight.  It’s definitely the way to go!

Everything was amazing with our Hawaiian paradise adventure!  We can’t thank Heidi Nanigian enough for her friendly and professional service!  We look forward to taking our next vacation with the help from Heidi and World Travel!

Seychelles – Cruising in First Class Style

Seychelles – Cruising in First Class Style

Scott and Renee Pfeiffer had the unique opportunity to visit Dubai and cruise the Seychelles in February of this year along with their adult children Kyle and Kelley.

We started the Seychelles cruise adventure from Dubai where we had a chance to tour some amazing sites including Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, landmark hotel Burj Al Arab and who could miss the Dubai Mall with the world’s largest fish tank.


We are all scuba certified and have been wanting to experience the warm, welcoming water of the Seychelles and Crystal Cruises new yacht Esprit was the perfect option. After two days of touring in Dubai, we boarded the yacht which carries on 60 passengers. Everyone on board experienced first class service and had a chance to socialize and get to know the captain and crew.  While on board, we all enjoyed scuba, snorkeling and wake boarding. Especially exciting was time spent exploring the islands by hiking, biking, zip lining, enjoying helicopter and even submarine rides.

If you asked what I enjoyed the most (Renee) it would be being together and spending quality time on sugar white beached, lush emerald mountains, UNESCO protective wildlife preserves and one of the most dynamic coral reefs in the Seychelles.
