If you ask 100 people to name their top choice for a Honeymoon or "Milestone Anniversary" destination, at least 30 of them would name Hawaii, according to a recent study. Visions of tropical palm trees swaying in the breeze, drinks in coconut shells and sexy hula dancers create a very romantic image! I belong to some travel agent Facebook groups and always cringe when I see someone ask: "What is the best island/resort for Honeymooners in Hawaii?" There are so many different answers, depending on the couple, their likes/dislikes, their budget, and their pre-conceived dreams of what their priceless vacation will look like!
Some of the top reasons Honeymoon couples select Hawaii are:
1. No Passports Required
2. No language barriers
3. Their vision of America's own tropical paradise
However, there are 5 main islands in the Hawaii chain that are open to tourism and each one of the islands offers a totally different experience:
Want to visit Pearl Harbor, Waikiki Beach, and like big city nightlife, shopping and crowds? Oahu is your answer!
Are you more the "country club" type, enjoying luxurious resorts and planning to spend most of your time lazing around the pool or on the beach? Maui sounds perfect!
Want to get away from it all, play golf together, turn in early and enjoy peace and "small town" quiet? Lanai has an amazing newly-renovated Four Seasons resort to offer!
Do you love to hike, paddleboard, kayak and be stunned with the most breathtaking scenery on the planet? You would love Kauai, the "Garden Isle"!
Are you the type of couple who is fascinated by nature, history, the Polynesian culture and scientific wonders? The Big Island of Hawaii offers active volcanoes, telescope observatories on top of snow-capped mountains, and historical and religious landmarks - too many to count!
How in the world can you decide which island, or islands, are for you? Well, that's where I come in! I know the right questions to ask to help navigate the process and make sure that your special trip is custom-crafted just for YOU and your desires! Just because a neighbor enjoyed their resort last summer, doesn't mean that you will have the same result. Hawaii is not a one-size-fits-all destination...and you deserve to be sure that your priceless vacation time and money are spent on the trip that is just right FOR YOU!
