Our stay in Kaanapali Maui!

Kaanapali Maui is one of my favorite places!
I have very fond memories of that place after going for years with my family growing up.  It's truly a beautiful place :)

After a week of just the two of us on Kauai, TL and I invited our friends, Jess & Aaron with us to enjoy a few days in the sunshine on Maui.  We stayed at The Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas.

We tried a new Sushi restaurant called Sansei in Kapalua... and it is A-mazing!  If you are ever on Maui, it's a must go.  Their entire menu is 25% off until 6pm, and then starting at 9pm, they go to 50% off.  If you decide to go,  make sure you make a reservation at least a few days in advance.  There was a long line around the place to get in, and with out that reservation, we may not have gotten in before 6!

We also had our 2 year anniversary dinner at The Plantation House in Kapalau.  We went there last year when we were on Maui for our Anniversary.  The fish is delicious, although this year it wasn't as good as last!  It's a little pricey, but a fun place to go for a special occasion because the views are hard to beat!

{that is all one large tree... called the Banyon tree in Lahaina}
{so cute with my pink bag ;) - we were pooped after a delayed flight home, but it was all worth it}

We had a wonderful time enjoying the pool & beach... we even picked up smash ball to play in the sand and it was really fun.  There were so many great fish to look at right off the shore of our hotel, we swam with a sea turtle on our last day there!

Happy Wednesday!!

What an incredible trip! As usual, you look beautiful in all these pics. :) I've never been to Hawaii, which is funny since it seems to be the go-to vacation spot for Californians!

These pictures are GORGEOUS, Tracy! And yummm for half priced sushi - an unbeatable combination :) My Poppy had a house in Hawaii, and the Plantation House was his favorite restaurant - he would always rave about it, so it's so funny that you would have great memories there as well! I also ADORE your pink dress - you look stunning, and as always, you and Tim look so happy together. I'm so glad that while it was exhausting, you had such a perfect celebration of your anniversary. Welcome back! xo

Jax said...

ha! I took my pink bag to Maui last year too! That's kinda hilarious! It has since broken (the wheels couldnt handle all my fabulous attire... haha.. right.). Loving these photos and makes me want to go back to Hawaii so badly! I LOVED our vacation.. LOVED.. and am so blessed and fortunate to get to go places decently regularly..but.. I kinda feel like we didnt get a "vacation" b/c we were so busy the whole time! I'm really hoping Eric and I can get away in early spring or even for a New Years trip/long weekend or something relaxing... TBD. :)
