Honeymoon Destination: Kauai, Hawaii
One of the toughest wedding
planning decisions of a newly engaged couple is to decide on their honeymoon destination. The honeymoon is a couple’s first adventure together. It should be romantic and offer something for both the bride and the groom. One of the hottest vacation destinations couples choose is the Hawaiian islands.
Where to Stay:
Kauai has several options for accommodations as well, everything from the ultra luxury spa resorts to the budget condos. There is a wide range of accommodations and options for every budget. With an average Hawaiian vacation destination costing between $3,500 and $5,000 for 7 days, Hawaii can be very affordable. Waimea Plantation, a one-of-a-kind oceanfront resort with historic plantation cottages amidst a Coconut grove, is reminiscent of the way Hawaii used to be. Each historic cottage is fully restored with modern amenities and conveniences including a kitchen. The staff at the Plantation is friendly and very helpful and wants to make sure your honeymoon on the island as well as their resort is remarkable. The plantation is very secluded on the western side of the island near Waimea Canyon and the Na Pali coast. You can catch a boat near the resort to explore the Na Pali coast which is viewed only by boat, helicopter or by foot. This is an adventure that should not be missed. This award winning resort is perfect for the lower budget honeymoon.
Koa Kea is an oceanfront luxury boutique hotel in Poipu which is known for its beaches. The hotel opened this past spring and has become a peaceful honeymoon refuge. The service is exceptional and the staff just seems to know what you need and want before you do. The food, the spa and the staff makes this a perfect place to unwind after a hectic wedding. The hotel is close to activities and sightseeing for the rest of the island. One of the activities to check out: the ATV tour at the Kipu Ranch. At the end you can swim at the base of a waterfall.
What to See on your honeymoon:
Hawaii, in short, is paradise on earth. Each of the islands, Oahu, Kauai, Maui, Hawaii, Molokai and Lanai has its own unique personality. Kauai is remarkable for its spectacular and widely varied landscape from Waimea Canyon, the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific," to the Na Pali Coast, with cliffs rising 2,700 feet and more than 40 white sand beaches. Within Kauai's 533 square miles, there are distinct micro-climates including coastal sand dunes, desert-like plateaus, verdant river valleys, foothills and mist-shrouded mountain tops.
The options are endless and you can experience the “aloha spirit” on your special Hawaiian honeymoon destination.
