We visited the islands of Maui and Kauai!
What resort did you stay in?
On Maui we stayed at the Fairmont Kea Lani, and on Kauai we stayed at the Grand Hyatt
We knew that we wanted to visit someplace warm and relaxing, but someplace with so much more to offer than just beaches and nice views. We chose Hawaii because we feel that each island is so diverse and has so much to offer. Hawaii is filled with beaches, romance, adventure, views, culture, shopping and fantastic dining.
What was your favorite part about each resort?
At the Fairmont we loved the location, rooms, pools, restaurants, and staff. At the Grand Hyatt the resort was extremely beautiful, and we enjoyed the hammocks outside of our room to relax in!
We enjoyed the weather, the scenery, the food and people. Both locations were extremely beautiful and relaxing, both were also very easy to travel to, and we felt comfortable driving everywhere is our rental car.
Did you receive any special honeymoon amenities or upgrades?
Yes we received free desserts, a room upgrade, and champagne!
If you could have changed one thing about your trip, what would it be?
We would have added a hike on Kauai, but we were really enjoying relaxing by the beach and pool our last few days.
At first, our helicopter tour of Kauai comes to mind, it was an amazing experience. Sometimes though it is the simpler things and we would have to say it was when we were swimming off a beach on Maui and it started to rain lightly for maybe 10 minutes. It was so romantic and relaxing to be drifting along together in the rain. We remember thinking we could not be more happy and the moment could not have been more perfect.
Try not to over plan. Pick your favorite outings/excursions but leave several unplanned days as well to relax, enjoy each other and rest! Also this is a once in a lifetime trip, treat it like that if you can splurge, try new things together, and take lot’s of pictures!
