The Best Ways to Enjoy Your Honeymoon in Hawaii
If you're looking for the perfect paradise getaway for your post-nuptial escape, there's no better place than Hawaii. With beautiful weather year-round, gorgeous beaches, heavenly resorts and countless fun and romantic activities, Hawaii is the ideal honeymoon destination. And with multiple islands to choose from, you can see a wide variety of different types of cities and scenery depending on what suits your mood.
Getting to Hawaii
As you might imagine, the only efficient way to get to Hawaii is to fly. Thankfully there are a lot of U.S. airlines with frequent trips to Hawaii, so there usually isn't much of a problem finding a flight that suits your needs. For more details, refer to our guide on getting around Hawaii.
Best Times to Visit Hawaii
Visiting Hawaii December through March or April will bring a respite from winter, but hotels and flights will be expensive. Christmas time and Spring Break are especially busy, so expect to pay premium prices around those times. Of course, if you're planning your honeymoon and want it to follow your wedding directly, your time frame is a little more limited, but it's something to consider. For more, refer to our guide on when to visit Hawaii.
Getting Around Hawaii
There is very little in the way of public transit on the islands, so plan on renting a car unless you want to spend time mostly in your resort and book day trips, which we might add isn't a bad idea at all. Renting a car on the islands can be quite pricey, and they get booked far in advance, so we recommend booking them far out. Feel free to reach out to our concierge team for complimentary assistance with car rental bookings. Some top luxury hotels will even provide drivers if you book a honeymoon suite. If you'd like personalized recommendations or help with arranging for to-and-from transport from the airport to your hotel, you can always your 24/7 complimentary personal Suiteness concierge. To travel between islands, there are relatively cheap and frequent inter-island flights through a few different providers on the islands.
Where to Stay in Hawaii
The first decision you will be faced with is which island in Hawaii you want to visit on your romantic honeymoon getaway. While each one has slightly different offerings, Maui, is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world, with its perfect balance of pristine beaches and verdant jungle. Hawaii, the Big Island is known for its volcanoes, whereas Kauai is one of the rainiest islands, which can put a damper on things, but also provides some of the most beautiful scenery. Honolulu, which is on the island of Oahu, is the biggest city on all of the islands and has some of the best shopping.
Honeymoon suites in Hawaii
For most people, a honeymoon is a once in a lifetime trip, so why spare any expense? From resorts to small bed and breakfasts, you can find beautiful honeymoon suites on all of the islands.
The Palms Cliff House Inn on the Big Island of Hawaii is a quaint bed and breakfast that overlooks Pohakumanu Bay, with suites perfect for two people. Many of the suites here offer ocean views, with a small, intimate feel of an inn. For a prime location, right on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, the Prince Waikiki Hotel boasts beautiful ocean views from all of their rooms and easy access to all of the excitement of Honolulu. If you want to go all out in the lap of luxury, there is no better choice than Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort, for the highest quality suites. The suites here look out onto coveted shores of Wailea beach, and each suite comes with access to fitness center and services including massages, manicures, and body treatments.
Things to do on your honeymoon in Hawaii
It can be overwhelming to plan your honeymoon with so many exciting options. While you want to make sure you take in some of the natural beauty that Hawaii has to offer, we also recommend planning plenty of time for sunbathing and swimming on Hawaii's beautiful beaches, and spending some alone time in your honeymoon suite.
For the more active types, there is plenty of hiking and exploring to be done. Hiking the Napali Coast or visiting the Queen's Baths Kauai are truly unforgettable day trips. Take a look at our guide on things to do in Hawaiiand Hawaii attractionfor more ideas.
There are also tons of romantic boating trips that offer you the opportunity to see whales and dolphins and get some amazing views of the coasts from the water!
