Escape to Maui with the Family

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Aloha! Isn’t it amazing how energizing vegan food brings smiles and delight to your day? When in Maui make sure to visit A’a Roots for some of the healthiest grub on the island. Today’s falafel wrap and mung bean/mushroom burger were on point and guilt-free. This plant-based café is one of the reasons why I travel annually to Hawaii. The natural beauty of this island is perfect for Nomadic Souls looking for pure waters, conscious living, and active life.

We settled in at the majestic Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa which is perfect for a family or business trip. In my case, the journey including both. Located on 23 idyllic oceanfront acres at the historic the Pu‘u Keka‘a on Ka‘anapali Beach, the Sheraton is perfect for nomads looking to experience family fun, adventure, and romance. Relax at the resort’s 142-yard lagoon style pool, taste fresh island cuisine, learn indigenous Hawaiian cultural activities and play at the white sandy beach. Eighty-three percent of the resort’s 508 rooms and suites feature breathtaking views of the Pacific, and sister islands Lana’i and Moloka’i. At sunset, the resort showcases its iconic cliff dive ceremony, a tradition since the resort first opened in 1963. Make lasting memories as you unwind during sunset, snorkel with tropical fish and honu (green sea turtles), learn ukulele with family or rejuvenate at The Spa at Black Rock.

Vacation Fitness

FitFamilies-VactionFitness

The 3rd Annual Rawlins Family Hawaii Holiday Vacation kicked off with a bang. There is nothing more pleasing than exercising as a unit with nature. We knocked out 3 miles, 10 wind sprints, 50 push-ups and sit-ups, 25 dips and finished off with a little bit of yoga. Time to refuel with fresh organic plant foods from the island. Yep, vacation is to to relax the mind, not the body!
