Hawaii

Jane Anderson, Honeymoon expertJane's verdict
The eternally glamorous Hawaii is as classy as its most famous son, President Obama! America’s 50th state offers easy island hopping from iconic Honolulu, home to Waikiki Beach, to seven other islands including Kauai with its waterfalls and canyons. With top surfing, mountain biking, scenic helicopter rides and classy resorts, Hawaii is also a great combo with mainland cities such as Las Vegas or San Francisco.

Quite simply, a honeymoon in Hawaii is a dream come true. This collection of tropical islands in the Pacific ocean could have been created just for romance and it’s so easy to island-hop between them or combine a stay in Hawaii with the USA mainland.

  • Island hopping
  • Luxury resorts
  • Tailor made honeymoons

Our expert team will tailor-make your dream honeymoon to suit your interests and available time. We’ve picked a few highlights here to give you an idea of the amazing experiences that await.

Island-hopping is definitely the most popular option – this ultimate island-hopping itinerary will give you an idea of what we can arrange for you. Inter-island flights are frequent and reliable plus transfer times between the airports and hotels are generally no longer than an hour.

The island of Oahu is home to Honolulu International Airport so is often the first stop – and, of course, it’s home to the world-famous hotspot, Waikiki Beach. For a taste of elegant Hawaiian hospitality in the lap of luxury, our top pick on Oahu is the classic Halekulani.

Also on Oahu but far removed from the Waikiki buzz, Four Seasons Resort Oahu is a more chic and contemporary hotel in the most spectacular position on the west coast. Expect world class service and don’t miss time in the dreamy spa.

Known as the Garden Isle, Kauai is arguably the most scenic of the islands. Lush green jungle, waterfalls, rivers, canyons and stunning beaches make this a popular choice. Our top hotel pick is the Koa Kea Hotel & Resort, a luxurious oceanfront resort on famous Poipu Beach. The restaurant alone is a reason to stay!

The coastline and beaches of the island of Maui are some of the best in the world – Ka’anapali Beach is particularly impressive. Our top pick on Maui is the intimate Hotel Wailea. This Relais and Chateaux gem is for adults only and exudes romance.
