Hawaii Hideaways Inc. Press Release
Harper's Bazaar Dubai
If the Grand Pavilion residence in Hawaii is good enough for President Obama and his wife Michelle, it's good enough for us. Hawaii has always been a popular celeb getaway, but thanks to the spotlight on Obama's heritage (he was born in Honolulu), it's enjoying a renaissance.
Obama stayed with his family at this palatial 16,000 sq ft mansion just before his inauguration and we can see why it proved a hit. Overlooking Kailua Bay on the island of Oahu, it's just the place for a party with an exotic island twist. You and your guests can sip cocktails in the outdoor lounge area, followed by a dinner cooked by your personal chef. Afterwards, a Hawaiian-esque pool party is in order, and you may even spot Justin Timberlake or Harrison Ford strolling along the beach- both have rented properties here.
After slumbering in one of 10 lavish bedrooms, you'll awake to a mouth-watering breakfast. Then your guests can while away the hours relaxing in the jacuzzi before preparing to say aloha to another evening of pure Hawaiian decadence.
Best Bedroom: The Master Suite, which is exceptionally private (perfect for VIPs) and has direct views of the ocean.
Cost: From Dhs25,000 a night, which includes daily housekeeping and a personal chef for preparing dinner.
