It’s not a real stretch of the imagination to picture a romantic getaway in Hawaii. Here are some tropical escapes that are sure to put you in the mood for love. Pamper yourself with luxurious spa treatments for two, take in a round of golf, enjoy fine dining at its best, or just lounge by the pool – the choice is up to you.
Royal Hawaiian Hotel (Oahu)
Also known as the “Pink Palace of the Pacific,” the Royal Hawaiian is a Waikiki Beach landmark, and truly sets the standard for luxury. For a fine dining experience right on the beach, don’t miss the world-class restaurant, Azure.
St. Regis Princeville (Kauai)
In Kauai, prepare to take in a million shades of green with striking natural beauty as it is the oldest of the main islands in the Hawaiian chain. The St. Regis Princeville is located on Kauai’s north shore and is the perfect getaway when you want a first class Kauai experience.
Turtle Bay Resort (Oahu)
Oahu is known as the “Gathering Place” and it’s true that as the state’s most populous island you will have the widest variety of culture, nightlife, and things to do during your trip here. But if you feel the need to get away from it all, the Turtle Bay Resort way out on the north shore is a refreshing change from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki.
Grand Wailea (Maui)
A popular choice for celebrities and locals alike, the Grand Wailea on Maui truly lives up to its name. The grounds cover 40 acres on the sunny south shore of Maui, with amenities like the Spa Grande, tennis, golf, and adult only pool with swim up bar. The Adam Sandler movie “Just Go With It” was recently filmed here as well!
