Hawaii, otherwise known as Paradise, is one of the most beautiful and charming destinations in the world. Warm nights, gorgeous sunsets, crystal clear waters rolling against the shoreline—it doesn’t get much more romantic. From Honolulu to Wailea, here are the most wonderful hotels and resorts for couples in Hawaii.
Entering through the lobby, with its exquisite sea glass chandelier, one would recognize they are about to enjoy the wonders of a great hotel. Located on the east side of Oahu, Kahala Hotel is just a stone’s throw from the bustle of tourist-laden Waikiki. This hotel, however, is peaceful in its lack of population, unless you count the resident turtles and dolphins—who you can swim with, if you’d like. Or, take a few steps to the beach. Though not private, the quiet beach does not see a lot of traffic, therefore, making it ideal to share a private kiss.

If seclusion is what you are after, this is the resort for you. Situated on one of the least populated islands in Hawaii, Lanai has the fortune to host one of the most beloved Four Seasons Resorts in the world. Driving to the resort from the small airport will give you a sense of the peacefulness you are about to experience. Wander around the resort grounds to find an inviting hammock. Walk along the uncrowded beach with your sweetheart to Sweetheart Rock. If romance means hitting the greens, there is a very well-kept golf course for making your heart flutter.
The mile-long beach with soft white sand and great snorkeling is one reason the Westin Hapuna is so great. This beach is award-winning and it’s easy to see why. Sandy bottomed ocean swimming and lots of space to stretch out and unwind. Overlooking it all is the Westin, with open-air lobby and big, cool pools. You can choose to remain out of the sun in one of many chairs in the breezy lobby or venture down to get a raft to float the day away in style.
The rooms are spa-like with the name brand bath amenities and luxurious tub, you may decide to forego the beach and pools. Nah, don’t miss out on the warm but calm waters at this beach. The soft sand will exfoliate your feet and the salty ocean will cleanse your skin. Then find a hidden bench or other seating area for some quiet time to top off the zen experience that is the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel.
