- Wedding: September 2015
Fiancé and I will be honeymooning in Maui in 2015. (Yes I am planning already :))
We started looking at the Four Seasons, but decided against it because it is out of our budget..and it makes no sense for us to spend so much on a resort when we will be out and about all day.
We really liked the Ritz Carlton…but now I am have second thoughts since all the low ratings come from the fact that it didn’t “live up the to Ritz Carlton’s name”
We will be staying a week. We will be renting a car. We are planning to eat out at local eateries (we are big foodies) for breakfast and lunch…and do the popular restaurants for dinner (mama’s fish house, etc)
Here are the things that we are looking for:
1.) resort- we like the over all feel of an resort over a condo/hotel. We are splurging a little since it is our honeymoon. So we want to do a little fancier than Hyatt/Sheraton/Westin etc
2.) multiple pools
3.) Not too many kids at the resort
4) Easy drive to nearby restaurants
5.) pretty shallow water beach (fiancé loves to snorkel in the ocean as I sunbathe)
6.) beach is not to far from the resort.
Here is my list of stuff I would like to do on our stay on Maui. We really are busy bodies…and looooove the scenic views! So anything with nature is a plus.
1. Zip line
2. Road to Hana
3. Hiking (any suggestions on where we should go? We can do a 4-5mile hike)
We are wanting 4/5 days out, and 2 days relaxing at the resort & beach and just taking it easy
Any other suggestions? I would like maybe add 1-2 more things we can do.
We open to about anything. I would love to do whale watching but I don’t think it’s a good time when we go? In September? I think we will skip on a Luau this time. I may be open to snorkeling again. We did it while inCancun but the waters was sooo bad I got really sick from it. 🙁 but I definitely loved it for the shirt time I wasn’t sick 🙂 so I may be up to doing it on Maui 🙂
Anyways, please help in suggestions for a resort for us! I truly appreciate any advice and help I can get! Thanks in advance 🙂
