I know this may be a long shot…but here goes! It’s about that time for FI and I to start planning our honeymoon… and we’re both kinda stuck on Hawaii (Oahu in particular). Everyone is telling us how wonderful it is there… but also how expensive!! Has anyone ever vacationed there (honeymoon or not) and is it as expensive as everyone is saying? Anyone know of any all-inclusive deals?

My good friends just did their honeymoon in Hawaii, and between you and me, they’re kind of cheap… so there must be some deals to be found!

I’m on the same mission, Blueshoes! The search is pretty overwhelming, but I’ll let you know if we find any good deals. : )

I went to hawaii a few years back, but it was maui. It is AMAZING, I absolutely love it! The beaches are breath taking, the food is amazing, so much to do, and everyone is so friendly. Everything is a bit pricey, but I think its not bad if you look around for deals. I dont know of any all inclusive packages or anything though.

Well, I live on Oahu, and I gotta say you’ve already made a good choice in picking the right island for your possible Hawaiian honeymoon! 🙂 There is way more diversity to Oahu than other islands and you really can have the best of both worlds — tourism and “real” Hawaii, here. I would advise not picking one of the big resorts and do a little searching for a more intimate place to stay (I suggest AirBnB.com) to cut costs and have a more authentic experience. I can give you some ideas for some must-sees/do’s while you’re here too, if you decide to go!

I visited Oahu two winters ago, and I am a poor student – so it can be done! I made sure to stay in a hotel that was close to the beach, but not on the beach – rates are WAY cheaper this way. While in Waikiki, I believe the hotel we stayed at was called the Aqua Bamboo – they were undergoing some renovations at the time, so they had a really good special on!
The poster above has the right idea – stay someplace a little more initimate and off the beaten path. Your travels will be better and hopefully, rates a little more affordable!

Thanks for your thoughts everyone!
@littlemissmango: I am definitely going to check out that website, and if you have any knowledge/must sees, please pass them along! I’ve never been west of Texas, so I have no idea about anything in Hawaii really!
@Vahalla: I’m going to look at that hotel, too. Thanks!
