Maui’s Rich, Tropical Landscape Emphasized in Recent Article Released by Royal LahainaFeatured PR

Maui is a Hollywood favorite for on-location filming.
Lahaina, HI, United States of America ( 04/01/2013
The Royal Lahaina, Maui's leading resort, recently released an article discussing Hawaii's famous Kaanapali Beach, which has been voted in the past as America's best beach. The beach, like other treasured destinations in the area, once served as a retreat for Hawaiian royalty, but now acts as a haven for tourists and the Hollywood filming industry. The article, which is titled: Maui is a Hollywood Favorite for On-Location Filming!, goes on to emphasize the beachfront and tropical scenery within the area.

While Hollywood rarely identifies Maui and the Kaanapali Beach region as the filming location, Lahaina was actually featured within the 1958 film Twilight for the Gods. Other prominent Hollywood films utilized the pristine filming location to satisfy the visual needs of the films.

According to sources, this resort was actually the first planned resort in Maui. In addition to the Royal Lahaina Hotel, there are four other hotels and six condominium villages present in the area.

The lush landscape provides a vibrant, tropical backdrop for films, while the area's low population density ensures that film crews will have ample space to set up, film, and execute sequences ranging like the opening scene of Die Another Day, featuring world-renowned surfers & Pierce Brosnan as James Bond in Die Another Day.

The region doubles as a popular destination for Maui travel, tourism, and outdoor adventures. The local entertainment provided to tourists extends beyond the region's role in various Hollywood films. Local shopping villages allow tourists the opportunity to indulge in local crafts while tourists can also take part in various Hawaiian cultural activities, outdoor recreational activities and golf, as well as visiting the region's interesting & informative museums.

Much like the rest of the island, this area offers many opportunities for excitement. Every night at around sunset, a cliff diver lights a number of torches spanning the edge of Black Rock cliff and then dives off in honor of King Kahekili, one of Hawaii's most respected leaders from the past.

Between the island's unique visual sights, scenery, history, and master-planned resorts, Maui is a great place to explore for the movie connoisseurs, adventurers, and diverse travelers in the family.

Regardless of what tourists are looking to indulge in, they can find something to enjoy in the Kaanapali Beach area. Individuals choosing to stay in the area are recommended to stay at the Royal Lahaina Resort.

The article is called “You Haven't Been To Hawaii If You Haven't Been To a Luau!” and it charts the history of the luau—from its beginnings to the celebrations often held to this day. One of the topics the article covers is all of the different types of food found at a luau. This section was included to show that while the modern luau has changed much from early days there are still familiar dishes available that are prepared in the classic way.
