If you are considering celebrating your honeymoon or anniversary in Hawaii and would like some direction on how to plan your tropical island vacation - you are in the right place! If you have 8-10 nights, I would suggest splitting you vacation between 2 resorts - but stay on 1 island - the island of Maui. When you move from one area to the other, it feels like you’ve moved to another island without having to deal with the airports.
I am attaching a “bit” here of information on the 10 high end resort in Hawaii as I’d like you to see all options, on all islands. http://bit.ly/HG6xaV
My favorite combo would be either the Wailea/Hana are or the Kapalua/Hana area.
Four Seasons Maui or Fairmont Kealani Resort
They are both fantastic, intimate, high end resorts located near each other. I would suggest checking rates and free night specials to see which one is offering the best “special” for your dates of travel.
Ritz Carlton Kapalua - a beautiful small resort, really more of a destination, located about 9 miles north of Lahaina.
The Traveassa Hana Resort - end with the best - here you can reserve a Searanch cottage with private spa tub on your deck. Hana is old Hawaii, its in the middle of a rainforest and it takes 2 - 3 hours to drive over the 50 one way bridges - you will want to rent a convertible to really experience the trip, inclusive of waterfalls, bamboo forests and guavas falling off the trees.
The island of Oahu - Waikiki
The Kahala Resort is fabulous, if you wanted to visit Pearl Harbor and stay on Oahu for a few days, then head to an outer island, this is what I would suggest you lay your head.
The island of Lanai:
I have also included the 2 Four Seasons Resorts located on Lanai i.e. the Four Seasons Manele Bay, which is located at the beach and the Four Seasons Lodge at Koele, which is located inland. You can easily drive to either resort and enjoy the amenities at one and stay at the other, extremely peaceful but lots of activities.
The Big Island of Hawaii:
The Four Seasons Hualalai is one of the top Four Seasons in the world - absolutely gorgeous, lots to explore on the island.
The Island of Kauai:
There is a sweet little resort called the Koa Kea Resort - not quite the Four Seasons but a boutique resort. Now there is also the St. Regis Princeville which of course is gorgeous but I have a problem w/the hotel as there are no lanais (patios) in the rooms and this is a favorite thing to do, enjoy your morning coffee or a glass of wine on the lanai - can’t be done, but I wanted to mention the hotel.
So, now that I’ve completely confused you….look at the link I have attached to this article and give me a call. We will be more equipped to plan your romantic holiday. Do you like to golf, snorkle, hike or perhaps spa services are important to you? Do you want to plan a romantic, private dinner? Lets discuss the options - also do keep in mind I am a Virtuoso Travel Advisor - the benefits to my Clients are extra amenities, perks and upgrades not available to the general public.
