The beauty of living in Hawaii is not only the friendly people, pleasant climate, and having access to world class resorts, but also the ability to utilize “Kama’aina rates” – that is, discounted pricing only available to residents of Hawaii.
As we are heading closer to the end (hopefully) of the COVID-19 pandemic, we took the opportunity to spend a week at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki, Hawaii. To our surprise, so did a lot of other people.
