You barely survived hell, and clawed your way out of limbo. Now: Paradise. Look to the sky and fly away with your other (or other other) lady to an off-continent utopia where no one knows your name, face or familial affiliations: Hawaii. Having put not just miles, but nautical miles, between yourself and real life, you can focus on the present and finally relax in the arms and legs and everything else of your dame du jour.
Hotel Renew is a gem of a boutique hotel. Set amidst a sea of grand-stand resorts on Waikiki beach, Renew hones in on individual comforts. You’ll never go without a chair on the beach—itself something of a private affair—and drinks flow freely, beginning with the complimentary cocktail you’re handed upon arrival. The hotel lives on the Diamond Head side of Waikiki beach, nice and close to some of the best dining on the island. Not that you’ll be leaving your suite.
