The best hotels in Maui for honeymoon luxury
Miles of breathtaking beaches, outstanding Hawaiian cuisine and tropical natural beauty to rival anywhere in the world, Maui is one of the best honeymoon destinations there is.
And because your honeymoon should be an extravagant and indulgent vacation (even more so than usual) we’ve hand-picked a selection of the absolute best Maui hotels for honeymoon luxury.
If you’re on your honeymoon you’re going to want to spend a good amount of your vacation time at your resort, and we’ve included plenty of stunning luxury resorts in Maui below that will make it almost absurd for you to want to venture off piste. Having said that, Maui is one special island, and it would be equally ludicrous not to at least take a glimpse at all that natural wonder.
The Road To Hana is a spectacularly scenic drive on Maui’s northeast coastline that will transport you to another time, and seemingly another planet. The road leads through lush rainforests, past powerful waterfalls, and dramatic seascapes. So you don’t have to worry about the winding narrow roads, and you can completely relax and immerse yourself in your surroundings, visitors are encouraged to go with an organised tour and guide, and there are plenty of luxury options available.
Another highlight worth stepping beyond the bounds of your luxury resort for is Haleakala National Park. In Hawaiian mythology, the crater at the summit of Haleakalā was home to the grandmother of the demigod Māui and, according to the legend, Māui’s grandmother helped him capture the sun and force it to slow its journey across the sky in order to lengthen the day.
The Haleakala Crater is one of the most beautiful places you can watch the sun rise anywhere in the world. You will need to make a reservation to enter the park for sunrise between 3am and 7am, and make sure to wrap up warm as the temperature is much cooler at the crater’s 10,000ft elevation.
There are far too many unmissable attractions to list them all here, but stargazing, wine tasting, and helicopter tours are all also well worth looking into.
That’s if you leave your resort. And it’ll be touch and go. The luxury hotels in Maui are above and beyond and some of the best luxury resorts in the USA, and combined with exquisite local food, and miles of soft white sand never far from your toes, most of your Maui honeymoon will be spent – very well spent – in paradise right on your doorstep.
