Since I’m missing those gorgeous Ko Olina sunsets, I just had to post a photo of one to kick start this news and deals edition.

* Volcano activity on Hawaii’s Big Island has been putting on a nightly glow show. The general public isn’t allowed to hike to the remote location where lava is churning and flowing. Though you can’t get dangerously close to the active lava at the moment, there are several points within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park where you can view the spectacular orange glow of lava per this map at night. Don’t forget to pack a flashlight if you’re going to view it.

* Oahu’s Polynesian Cultural Center opens their popular Haunted Lagoon on September 30th. Canoes run from 6:30 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from September 30 to October 22, and then Monday through Saturday from October 24 to 31. I got a chance to experience the Haunted Lagoon last year. See my review:  Visit Polynesian Cultural Center’s Haunted Lagoon For A Spooky Fun Time.

* You may recall that we recently stayed at Ritz-Carlton Kapalua on our Maui trip. I’ll be writing a full review soon, but the skinny on it is two big thumbs up from Andy and me.  I found this super deal for $299 per night plus free breakfast for two and a $100 resort credit.
