Hawaii is a long-standing favorite for honeymooners from the U.S. mainland and other Pacific Rim countries because of its natural beauty, sultry and relaxing trade winds, and the fact that it offers something for just about every type of traveler. But, Hawaii is in fact a chain of geographically and culturally diverse islands, each offering the honeymoon traveler a unique experience. So, which island is going to fit your honeymoon style?

Our partners at Marriott have captured the essence of each island with their magnificent architectural features, extraordinary comfort, and appointments that exemplify their legendary attention-to-guest detail. And, if you aren’t already a Marriott Rewards member, join now and you’ll receive the best rates possible, earn free nights, and get FREE in-room Wi-Fi at any of their 3,800+ hotels worldwide!

Oahu, The Gathering Place

If it’s picture perfect palm-studded beaches lined with world-class shopping and nightlife, Oahu, is THE island for you. This island’s biggest city, Honolulu, houses the capitol and offers cultural attractions such as the Bishop Museum, Honolulu Museum of Art, as well as the intriguing Pearl Harbor landmark. If this is the island of your choice but you don’t want to miss out on world-class surf or authentic Hawaiian villages, be sure to hop on the stunning H3 highway to the island’s north shore.

Hawaii, The Big island

The island of Hawaii lives up to its name, so if you want to traverse this island be sure to give yourself plenty of time. From the gentle shore of Kona to the lava flow atop the Kilauea volcano in Volcanoes National Park to the unparalleled scenery along the Waipio Valley’s hiking trails, Hawaii really does offer it all. This island is a Foodies Delight with stops at Macadamia and Pineapple plantations, as well as the numerous stops for island made Rum and homegrown Kona coffee! And, because its size, this island gives you the opportunity to explore the real Hawaii of its Polynesian ancestors. But, if you’d rather catch the highlights, don’t miss the Legends of Hawaii Luau in Waikoloa Village.

Maui, The Valley Isle

The island of Maui is shaped like a saddle with gorgeous cliffs at the tip of one end, charming old-Hawaii villages, other-worldly landscape atop Haleakala, LUSH scenery on the famous road to Hana, legendary surf spots such as JAWS along the eastern shore, and a valley full of sugar cane and lavender. The island is small, but don’t try to explore it all in one day, you’ll want to take your time and explore all its hidden treasures. And, if you prefer to spend your resort time amongst some of the best snorkeling spots EVER, you’ll love the Kaanapali coast!

Kauai, the Garden Isle

This island is for the traveler that truly understands the meaning of being laid back. For one reason, there is only one main road to get around the island and it can move at a turtle’s, or Honu in Hawaiian, pace. But, once there you will be surrounded by Aloha and will discover ways to make the most of your travels from one quaint spot to another. We highly recommend making ice cream stops along the way! The town of Hanalei (yes, from Puff the Magic Dragon fame) is a must on your way to the Napali shoreline.
