Island Trips You Can Book Now (and resort wear accessories you'll want to pack)


Who is ready to TRAVEL!!!?  Me, me, me!  Traveling is one of my favorite things to do.  Doesn't have to be exotic, some of my most treasured travels are the National Park road trips I take my kids on each summer.  However, jetting off to an island locale doesn't sound half bad either!  My guest blogger this week is Luxury Travel Advisor, Rob Merlin of Smart Flyer.  He's a Virtuoso member (he gets you free perks on your trips!) a Top 10 producer for Four Seasons, member of the Ritz Carlton Celestial Club....and on and on.  If you're ready for a luxury vacation with all the details expertly handled and perks on top....Rob is your guy.  Check him out on FB and Instagram @smartflyerrob Calihoo is here to keep your resort wear on point with the perfect accessories to pack for your next island vacation. You can also wear these looks here at home when you just want to feel that island vibe. Ready to fly? Here is what Rob has to say about 3 Island Vacations you can book now.

1. St Bart's is unquestionably the sexiest island in the Caribbean and has inimitable French style.  People spend hours lunching on beaches dressed in bathing suits with fabulous coverups.  The streets of the main town, Gustavia, are lined with the finest shops.  And the restaurants are outposts of the ones in New York, Miami, and the South of France. Drink Rose all day while boating around the island and partying well into the night.

2.  The Maldives are one of the most beautiful places on Earth.  They offer the ultimate desert island paradise with incredible crystal clear turquoise waters, soft white sandy beaches, shallow lagoons, endless sunshine and some of the best coral reefs on the planet.  The hotels - most with overwater bungalows and many with private water slides - are second to none.  The perfect place to chill and relax.

3. Hawaii.  There is a hotel and beach for every type of person.  For those wanting adventure, head to Kona or Maui.  For a slower scene and wonderful hiking in a less crowded space, visit Kauai.  Lanai, the Four Seasons renovation, makes it one of the best beach destinations in the world.  Honolulu is bold and cosmopolitan with the shopping and dining you would expect from a great city.
