How to Plan a Romantic Getaway to Hawaii

Hawaii is by far one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. With its dramatic landscapes, stunning beaches, and incredible culture, it’s truly a wonderful place to go – especially on a romantic escape. Whether you’re going on your first couple’s holiday or have been married for decades and want to really splurge on something for the two of you, this guide will help you plan out and enjoy the ultimate Hawaiian experience.

Your Ultimate Romantic Resort

Where you stay makes a huge difference to how romantic and special your getaway is. The last thing you want is to be dealing with poor quality beds, sharing a bathroom, or just dealing with inaccessible accommodation. You want something that feels seamless and luxurious from the second you step inside. For the best of all worlds, choose a Honolulu resort that’s newly renovated and brings the best of authentic Hawaiian culture to your door. Honolulu itself is a great city to base your trip in and is often considered the gateway to the rest of the islands.

Renew Your Vows

Chances are, your resort will be happy to host a vow renewal, so if you’re here on an anniversary, you can up the romantic atmosphere and recommit to your spouse. It’s a great way to really show how much you love each other and tell each other that you’re dedicated to your relationship, all while being utterly romantic.

Enjoy Sunset Walks On the Beach

What’s more romantic than a sunset walk on the beach? Not only are you spoiled for choice when it comes to soaking in the stunning beaches of Hawaii, but there are also plenty of opportunities for fireside parties, Hula dances, and even fireworks.

Get a Dual Spa Experience

Get a couple’s spa experience! This can be a couple’s massage or just access to the spa facilities at your resort. Enjoying pampering together is a great way to relax and enjoy each other’s company. A spa experience is just what the doctor ordered when it comes to helping you both relax and bring you closer together.

Get Active Together

Hike! Swim! Snorkel! You can learn how to surf, hike along some utterly spectacular trails, snorkel, and do so much more. Yes, some will require some advance planning. More popular hikes, for example, need tourists to book their entry in advance. Always check and plan out what hikes or outdoor experiences you’re interested in, so you can rent any necessary equipment or make a reservation, depending on what you want to do. Tourism is huge in Hawaii, so to protect the natural ecosystem, even free activities need a reservation in advance to limit the numbers going.

Go Phone-Free

Taking photos and videos is absolutely fine, but if you want to get the most out of your experience, you’ll want to make a pact with your partner to go phone-free. This means no checking in on messages or looking at emails. So often, work can get in the way of relaxing and even in-between your relationship. Go phone free, and you can really enjoy your vacation and bond together so you’re stronger than ever before.
