Last year, Conde Nast Traveler readers voted Hotel Wailea one of the best hotels in the Hawaiian Islands. The suites-only luxury property on Maui is just our kind of place, with its own organic farm, well-designed pool, and one of the coolest indoor-outdoor gyms we’ve seen yet. These tropical juice shots (recipes below!) are included right on their pool menu: one for jet lag, one for immunity, and another for a hangover – proof positive that the hotel is totally in sync with the way we like to vacay.

We’re giving a couple of readers the ultimate excuse to discover Maui for themselves (see our trip to Maui farms last year!) Everyone participating in Pressed Juicery’s #30DayGreensChallenge is eligible to win a three-night stay in one of Hotel Wailea’s suites, welcome cocktails, and an adventure excursion in Maui (yes, airfare is included!). We hope many of you are already fully invested in the 30-day greens challenge, no bribes needed – we’re all about this daily challenge to incorporate more green goodness into our routine! – but there’s certainly no harm in a little extra incentive. After thirty days of healthier habits, a tropical vacation seems perfectly appropriate!

Get all the details about the 30 Day Greens Challenge here. We’re drinking along with everyone from top fitness pros to top models and spreading the word about the power of those daily greens!

While you’re dreaming of tropical getaways, check out these juice shot recipes from Hotel Wailea’s inspired mixologist Kerry Mekeel. Keep this hangover remedy bookmarked:
