From luxe poolside cabanas on the elevated pool deck at the award-winning Prince Waikiki, the panorama is spectacular. Relaxing beside the saltwater pool this late afternoon hour, there seems around us a subtle shift in the energy buzz, a time to come together, settle in, watching and waiting as the sun slowly drifts toward its finale, a blazing rendezvous with the horizon. The intense blue of the Hawaiian sky almost imperceptibly softens and deepens as we pause in anticipation of a glorious sunset, the sweetness of the cooling breeze a perfect complement to our colorful cocktails. Cloud puffs gather and float in dreamy streamers across the sky awaiting their dazzling moments in the sun, promising an ever-morphing palette of pastels. Like the ancients before us, this is the time to gather beside these endless ocean waters with a sense of awe and wonder and gratitude for this eternal display, celebrating another beautiful day in Hawaii. Romance is in the air; the sounds of laughter, music, shaken cocktails, and water splashing – the ultimate joy of a magical sundowner experience at Prince Waikiki.
