My fiance and I are going on our Honeymoon in the summer. We are staying 5 nights at the Grand Hyatt and 5 nights at the Marriott. I am looking to plan the whole honeymoon early. Any excursions and restaurant advice would be great. Thanks for your help

If you’re in Poipu see if the Sheraton has it’s Surf to Sunset Luau back on (it hasn’t been on for awhile while they remodel) and also for a romantic and yum dinner, try the Beach House just outside of Poipu.
You’ve gotta drive down the road from the Beach House and see Spouting Horn. Also, snorkelling is really great in the bay right in front of the Beach House.
I’ve been to Kauai about 5 times now so PM me for more details. I can recommend other snorkelling sites, a fun place to paddleboard, etc

For excursions, I’d recommend ziplining, snorkeling, hiking, and if you afford it, helicopter tour. Also take a tour of the Napali coast, beautiful!! Snorkeling is good from a lot of the beaches, but maybe also look into snorkeling tours that take you too sites that are only accessible by boat. If you get a chance also head up to the north shore too. Princeville, Hanalei, etc.
I have lots of food recs! In poipu you have to try Puka Dog! Best hot dogs ever seriously. Have Papalani gelato after in the same shopping center. Once you arrive at the airport, check out a local spot Hamura Saimin for some noodles and their lilikoi chiffon pie! Ono’s family restaurant on the central coast in Kapaa has the best breakfast. Next door Pono Market has the best plate lunches. Scotty’s is a great spot with a great view. Awesome burgers from TNT (stationary food truck). Smiths has a good luau. Tropical dreams ice cream in Kapaa is THE BEST ICE CREAM I’VE EVER HAD. Ok I’m totally getting hungry now.
PM me if you have any questions or need more recs. We go to Kauai almost every year, it’s our favorite place. Tripadvisor is a great resource for Kauai too, you should check out their forums
Have a blast, and you’ll love the Hyatt pool! So fun!!

we took surfing lessons with Hawaiian Surfing Adventures and it was really fun. the teacher was great and both Darling Husband and I were able to stand up within a few rides. they also take you out in hanalei bay, which has great waves, but is flat so you can walk out pretty far.

We’ve stayed at the Hyatt there a few times and LOVE it. I suggest renting a cabana on the lagoon for a couple of days, just to relax.
Our favorite restaurant that we discovered was this random breakfast place: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g60625-d518124-Reviews-Joe_s_on_the_Green-Poipu_Kauai_Hawaii.html it was SOOOO good and SOOOO cheap. It is right down the street from the Hyatt, so when you get tired of spending $40/person on breakfast try it. 🙂
