September 14, 2018


For those of us that currently live on Maui, we know why we love this island so much. From the beautiful sunrises over Haleakala to the glorious sunsets along the west side to the plethora of activities to choose from, this island is truly something special. Perhaps that’s why our unique island recently landed the number 1 spot in Travel + Leisure magazine’s list of “Top Islands in Hawaii” in its 2018 World’s Best Awards readers’ survey.

With Maui topping the list, it was followed by Kauai at number 2, Big Island at number 3, Oahu at number 4 and Lanai holding the number 5 spot. On top of that, Maui was also ranked number 14th on the publication’s list for “Best Island in the World.” The awards were recently featured in the August issue of Travel + Leisure.

The accolade did not go unnoticed and the Maui Visitors and Convention Bureau Executive Director Sherry Duong was quoted as saying, “We are proud to receive this wonderful recognition from Travel + Leisure readers and share this honor with the visitor industry and people of Maui that continue to make our island a remarkable, world-class destination.”

T+L editor in chief Nathan Lump said, “With stellar food, friendly people, lots to do and, of course, spectacular beaches, Maui is a pretty perfect package according to T+L readers. So, it’s no surprise to see this perennial favorite topping the list once again.”

Each year the World’s Best Awards are created by dedicated readers who vote on their favorite destinations, hotels, retreats, and companies to compile a final list of winners. The island rankings were based on five main aspects, including the beaches, activities and sights, restaurants and food, people and friendliness, value and natural attractions.

We are so proud to see our island home gaining so much positive attention. Here on Maui, we agree there’s no shortage of things to do, people to meet and places to go. That’s certainly why we are happy to call this place home and think you should too!

Hawaii Economy is on the Upswing

New Report! The Hawaii economy is anticipated to grow over the next 30 years and is expected to increase by 1.7 percent per year between 2016 and 2045.
September 07, 2018

A recent report by the state Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism (DBEDT) shows that Hawaii’s economy is anticipated to grow over the next 30 years.

According to the report, Hawaii’s economy is expected to increase by 1.7 percent per year between 2016 and 2045. This number is based and measured by the real gross domestic product and authorities believe civilian jobs will increase at a 0.8 percent rage. The population is also anticipated to grow at a 0.5 percent annual rate and visitor arrivals by airplanes will increase at 1.1 percent annual rate during the same time frame.

DBEDT initiated this projection in a study to assess long-range projections for the islands’ economy. The most recent report is the ninth in a series with the first report being published by the government agency in the late 1970’s. This assessment, in particular, uses detailed population characteristics from the 2010 Decennial Census, U.S. Census Bureau 2016 vintage intercensal population estimates, input-output tables from the 2012 Economic Census as baseline data for the projection and 2016 estimates of economic variables.

The report is put together by economists who focus on trends to determine the best estimates for the state’s economy in order to plan for future needs of the island, including infrastructure and economic planning. The forecast is conducted every five to six years, according to State representatives, with the last one released in 2012.

Some key findings include that the resident population will grow at 0.7 percent per year between 2016 and 2025. That growth rate is then expected to drop to 0.5 percent per year between 2025 and 2035, and then again to 0.3 percent between 2035 and 2045. The report also anticipates that by 2045, Hawaii will have a total resident population of 1,648,600, which is 15.4 percent higher than the 2016 population.
