Hawaii Honeymoon on which island?

Choosing Your Honeymoon Island, Hotel, Activities, Registry, Restaurants, or Planning Your Hawaii Wedding

There are six Hawaiian islands to choose from for your honeymoon.  The best island is Maui.  Oahu (Honolulu, Waikiki) is very crowded.  The Big Island and Kauai don’t have much to do.  Lanai and Molokai have even less to do.  Maui has only one-tenth as many people as Oahu, but it has plenty of great activities, sightseeing, restaurants, beaches, and shopping.  There is a lot more information about Maui at Maui Hawaii.

Below is info for choosing your Hawaii hotel or condo, things to do and activities, gift registry, restaurants, Hawaii weddings, wedding vows, and honeymoon packages.

Hawaii Honeymoon at which hotel or condo?

 

Maui Hotels and Maui Condos Luxury

If you like multiple fabulous pools and waterslides in a busy exciting hotel, I suggest the Grand Wailea.  If you prefer a quiet hotel with pampering service, try the Four Seasons.  Both of those are discussed in more detail, with links, at
South Maui Hotels

Maui Hotels and Maui Condos Moderate

For a less expensive hotel on the best beach on Maui, I recommend the Kaanapali Beach Hotel.  It is discussed in more detail, with a link, at
West Maui Hotels

Maui Hotels and Maui Condos Inexpensive

For an inexpensive place on Maui, you will have to choose one of the smaller condo complexes, such as Papakea, which is discussed here
West Maui Condos
or Kamaole Sands, which is discussed here
South Maui Condos

Hawaii Honeymoon Things to Do & Activities

Besides enjoying Maui’s beaches and ocean and your hotel pool, if you want to be busy there are a lot of things to see and do on Maui.  Activities include boat tours (snorkeling, whale watching, dinner cruise, fishing, sailing), luaus, biking, horseback riding, helicopter rides, and van tours.  See Maui Things to Do.

Hawaii Honeymoon Restaurants

My favorite Maui restaurants for fine dining are Roy’s, Nick’s Fishmarket, Gannon’s, and Merriman’s.  For moderate-priced Maui restaurants, I like Kimo’s, Cafe O’Lei, Koa’s, and Cuatro.  My inexpensive recommendations are Penne Pasta, Baguette Bistro, Pita Paradise, and Cafe Des Amis.  All of these and more Maui restaurants are discussed in detail at Maui Restaurants.

Maui Spa Day

A visit to a world-class spa is an excellent way to kick off a Hawaiian honeymoon and shake off post-wedding fatigue. Spa Montage Kapalua Bay offers one of the luxurious spa experiences on the island. In addition to a handful of island-inspired therapies, Spa Montage hosts a variety of romantic couples’ treatments.

Private Sail

Few things are more romantic than a private sail aboard the luxe Nova, a 42′ sailing yacht. Operated by Maui Custom Charters, this sleek sailboat sets the stage for an unforgettable honeymoon experience. Exclusive snorkel tours, whale watches, and intimate sunset cruises are accompanied by deluxe service, gourmet bites, and stellar views at every turn— collectively crafting an unforgettable experience for honeymooning couples time and time again.

Hawaii Honeymoon packages

For help finding or designing a Hawaii Honeymoon Vacation package, I’d suggest using a travel agent who specializes in Hawaii.  You can find a discussion of three such agents at Maui Vacations Travel Agents.
