I narrowed the criteria for my ideal Hawaiian getaway into 3 main fantasy points:
1. A turquoise bay 50 steps from the door
2. A punee (Hawaiian day bed) for spontaneous naps
3. Afternoon cocktail delivery
The new Lava Lava Beach Club cottages on the Big Island met these rigorous standards and scored a 3 out of 3, plus a bonus point for the in-room ukulele, outdoor shower, and sea turtle sightings.
