Whether you’re just married or renewing your vows, unwind into luxurious paradise living… warm ocean breezes, fragrant exotic flowers, delicious tropical fruits, and endless rainbows. The garden island of Kauai offers secret waterfalls, stunning beaches, dazzling sunsets, lush hiking trails, and beautiful ocean adventures. This is the perfect destination for a life newly committed to love. Before we give you lovebirds the low down on the best ways to make a romantic adventure out of Kauai, reflect on this:
“There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others, and is even behind any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet been identified by us. This universal force is LOVE. When we learn to give and receive this universal energy, we will have affirmed that love conquers all, is able to transcend everything and anything, because love is the quintessence of life… this force explains everything and gives meaning to life.” ~ Albert Einstein.
Beautiful, right? Einstein really was a genius! Read on for your personal guide to honeymooning on Kauai. We hope these four insider tips will bring you and yours much love and happiness during your stay.
#1 Kauai’s North Shore is A Romantic Paradise
The ultimate romantic escape can be found along the breathtaking North Shore of the Kauai coastline. Among the island’s best deals for couples are the condos at the Alii Kai Resorts. Get lost in this stunning tropical oasis with your own private lanai overlooking the majestic Pacific, as well as the condo’s contemporary island luxury of amenities.
On site, relax with beautiful in-room massages or unwind in paradise with the yoga classes. Feeling a bit creative? There’s traditional Ti Leaf Lei or jewelry making, and ukulele classes. Cool off into the outdoor pool or enjoy a sunset BBQ at the Resort’s convenient grill area. Beaches, shopping, and sights are all just a hop, skip, and a jump away.
Dreaming of an extended “home away from home” honeymoon? Look no further than the swanky Oakley Home. With spectacular ocean views and all the rich comforts of island life, this Princeville home is heaven on earth. Have fun with your own pool table, outdoor sitting garden, or let everything go in your private hot tub. This stunning island paradise has expansive wall-to-wall windows in the open kitchen and living areas and elegant amenities, including gorgeous and comfy beds. Close by, there are several local and prestigious golf courses.
#2 Experience the Island’s Hidden Treasures Together
Since the majority of Kauai’s lush interior landscape is inaccessible, an early morning helicopter tour is a perfect way to experience the island’s hidden treasures. Visit the spectacular Waimea Canyon Lookout, reminiscent of the Grand Canyon gone tropical.
You’ll find radiant sunsets with majestic mountains at Ke’e Beach. Another great option is to indulge in a romantic sunset catamaran cruise along the Na Pali Coastline.
#3 Epic Shared Adventures to Set The Right Tone For Your Life Together
Feeling adventurous? Explore Hawaii’s top hiking trails with Maha’ulepu Heritage Trail or the lost paradise trails of Kalalau or Koke’e.
You’ll find amazing snorkeling if you dive in around Poipu on Kauai’s South.
Kayak through some of Kauai’s hidden treasures along the Wailua River, or leap into paradise with zip-lining…
When all is said and done, the simple beauties in life are waiting for you along the beaches of Hanalei Bay. Sunbathing, surfing, or paddle boarding are among a few of the island traditions.
Finally, don’t miss “Kalamaku” Luau, an authentic Hawaiian dinner theatre and fire dancing. Another ol’ time great is Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific Dinner Show at the Kauai Beach Resort. A thrilling alternative is experiencing Kauai like a real Paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy and cowgirl). There are riding tours along the beaches, on private ranches, or across lush waterfalls and rainforests.
#4 Scintillate Your Taste-Buds with the Best of Kauai’s Gourmet Island Dining
Venture into Hanalei to the local’s hangout on the banks of the idyllic Hanalei River. The Dolphin Restaurant Fish Market & Sushi Lounge offers a lazy afternoon of cocktails, pupus (appetizers) and delicious fish and sushi.
When you’re down exploring the South Shore, try the Iconic Beach House Restaurant in Po’ipu, or sip tropical drinks and dance to lively music at Duke’s Barefoot Bar on the beach of Kalapaki. After so much island fun, homemade pie is waiting for you at the Hanapepe Café and Bakery.
Feel like kicking the sand off your feet? Visit the stylish and rockin’ Bar Acuda Tapas & Wine, or enjoy a romantic sunset dinner overlooking the magical Hanalei at Makana Terrace in the St. Regis of Princeville.
Whatever is your honeymoon pleasure, Kauai’s magic and beauty will quench your tropical thirst, and have you both coming back for more. “Aloha nui loa”… Very much love!
