A stay in Hawaii is a memorable experience and with warm weather along with a long list of island activities, spending the holidays on Maui makes it that much more unforgettable. Usual traditions for Thanksgiving dinner can vary amongst individuals and while it may not be exactly the same on vacation, we at Rentals Maui would like to help you make it just as special.

For a traditional sit-down dinner, there are a number of restaurants offering you a chance to enjoy a delicious meal together while fully enjoying that “vacation mode”. Or you could take a non-traditional route and board one of the sunset dinner cruises for a tropical holiday experience. You might even catch an evening show of our favorite finned friends playing as they are also spending their holidays here in the warm Hawaiian waters. If you are interested in either of these options, be sure to call ahead to reserve your seat as the open eateries and boat tours do book up quickly.

Looking to avoid the crowd and simply enjoy each other’s company? Well, you can create a familiar feast with hints of Hawaiian flavors right in the comfort of your home away from home as each of our vacation villas are outfitted with fully-equipped kitchens. Along with the convenient location of all our South Maui condos for rent, hele (go) on over the nearby grocery store for some ingredients and cook up a festive meal together right here in paradise. You could even enjoy the swaying palms against the baby blue sky as you grill up a unique Thanksgiving meal on the rental villa’s community barbecue.

So if your Hawaii vacation overlaps with this holiday dedicated to thanks, we hope these ideas will help you decide on how you are going to celebrate your Thanksgiving here on Maui. And as the sun dips below the horizon, leaving the majestic island to fade from different shades of sunset, we hope that you also have the opportunity to appreciate not only the island’s beauty but also each other.
