Maui honeymoon ideas

Maui has been a top honeymoon destination for decades. The warm beaches, white sand coastlines, beautiful sunsets, and tropical waterfalls create a perfect backdrop for romantic memories.  It seems that one out of every 20 of our guests is here on their honeymoon. We thought we would put together a list of great ideas for couples honeymooning on Maui!

Snorkeling – You don’t have to be some sort of ocean/water guru to enjoy snorkeling.  There are plenty of beaches on Maui where you can ease your way into the water at your own speed and see beautiful fish and coral in 5 feet of water.  Make a day out of it and book a snorkel trip to Molokini and Turtle Town.

Dining – There are some fabulous options for dining on Maui.  Most of the 4- and 5-star resorts on the island have world-class restaurants run by chefs with resumes that don’t end.  For an unusual and romantic setting, check out the Humuhumunukunukuapuaa restaurant at the Grand Wailea, which located in grass tikis on pontoons over a koi pond. We have heard that one table at this restaurant was voted most romantic table in the United States.  Other popular restaurants to take your sweetie include Mama’s Fish House on the North Shore, which has a wall of pictures from celebrities that have dined there.

Luau – How can you come to Hawaii and not go to a luau? It is the perfect opportunity to wear that aloha pattern dress/shirt and put a flower in your hair. Try traditional Hawaiian games, drink tropical cocktails, listen to local music, and be entertained by Polynesian dancers. Most luaus even have a special moment where honeymooners or those celebrating an anniversary are honored with a special dance.  Be sure to book your luau tickets before you arrive on Maui, as many of them sell out at least a week prior.

Spa treatment – You deserve a break! Why not book a relaxing couples massage or one-of-a-kind spa treatment unique to Maui?  The Grand Wailea has a world famous Terme plunge pool circuit, allowing you to relax in different tubs accented by tropical fruits and oils. Other treatments around Maui include seaweed wraps, hot Hawaiian rocks, coconut oil rubs, and we have even heard of a beer bath in a copper tub!

Haleakala Summit – Honeymoons are all about making memories.  It’s going to be hard to forget walking in a volcanic crater or watching the sunrise/sunset from the highest point on Maui!  The temperatures up at the summit are often 30 or 40 degrees cooler than on the coastline, so body heat might be required.

Waterfalls – What is more romantic than a waterfall?  There are a couple very popular waterfalls on Maui that you can visit pretty easily. Twin Falls on the North Shore is an easy hike that should take you no more than 15-20 minutes to hike in to. Be sure to bring a camera!  If you do the road to Hana you will pass countless waterfalls along the way, with the waterfalls at the Seven Sacred Pools being the most famous. Waimoku Falls at the end of the Pipiwai trail in Hana is one of the longest falls on Maui and one you will surely never forget!
