Aloha! I’m Kaytee, the travel-obsessed owner of Malihini Travel, and your new favorite travel planner.
Malihini Travel’s Mission
Malihini Travel designs custom Pacific vacations for the discerning client who values a personalized planning experience, with a special focus on Hawaii and French Polynesia. Purposeful attention to detail creates a superior vacation experience from initial planning to your arrival home.
At any given time you can find me planning travel, dreaming of travel, or actually traveling. It’s pretty hard for me to stay put with those beautiful islands constantly calling my name. I mean, have you seen some of those photos on my destinations page?
I’ve had the good fortune of experiencing everything from cliff diving in Jamaica to being tattooed by a local Polynesian in Mo’orea to witnessing the beauty of humpback whales up close in the ‘Au’au channel. Throughout my travels, I’ve learned a very important lesson: the magic of travel comes alive when you’re truly experiencing the authenticity of a destination. Malihini Travel was born out of a deep respect and adoration for the authenticity of the Pacific region.
I don’t rely solely on my personal travel experiences to plan yours. After completing my studies with The Travel Institute, I pursued destination training, earning my certifications from the tourism boards of Australia, Fiji, Hawaii, and New Zealand. I’m continuing to work toward the coveted Certified Tahiti Specialist designation as well.
To say I’m obsessed with the Pacific and Polynesian culture is an understatement. I can’t get enough of it and that adoration is reflected in all that I can provide you as your travel designer. My knowledge of the Pacific continues to grow everyday, resulting in incredible service for my clients.
