“Boutique hotel infuses the Waikiki experience with a unique, personal touch”
When dreaming up an image of Hawaii, most people think of hula dancers on pearly white beaches or surfers on aqua waves.
But a rider on horseback is just as Hawaiian as either of those scenes.
Cattle have been in the Hawaiian islands since the late 1700s, when an English explorer brought them to King Kamehameha I as a present.
When the cattle populations grew out of control, the king hired cattle herders from Spanish California to train Hawaiians in their craft. And so the culture of the Hawaiian paniolo was born!
If you want to see a modern-day Paniolo, head on up to the North Shore, home of the Hawai‘i Polo Club.
Every guest checking in during the summer season receives two complimentary admission tickets to the polo matches held there.
