We’re going for our honeymoon in Hawaii on 28 February so I can’t speak from experience yet.  However the AUD is fairly low $0.70 at the moment and we’re going to make it work with a AUD$1000 budget for tours (of which we’ve only used half to prebook things) and AUD$2000 for shopping and dining.  This is for 9 nights, 5 in Maui and 4 in Waikiki.  Our entire honeymoon is budgeted at AUD$9000 (flights, accomodation at the Hyatt, transfers, tours, shopping and dining).  From looking up restaurants and the like that we want to eat at I’d say it’s not too pricey.  It’s probably about the same as if I were going to eat in Sydney, but compared to Canada I’m not sure as I have never been.  You can definitely do cheaper than we did in Hawaii though.

We went to Maui for a five night honeymoon last September.  We loved every minute of it.

NBee:  Where do you live?  We would have loved a trip to Hawaii for our honeymoon even though I’ve been a few times with my family.  We live on the east coast and felt the money went further in the Caribbean.  My parents even agree, why fly for 12 hours when the Caribbean is 3-6 hours away and everything is all-inclusive?

We are going to Maui!!  As prior poster said, flights can be more expensive, but food is WAY better in Hawaii than Caribbean (in my opinion) and that was important to us.  We were lucky in that we had some points for hotels, but they can be really expensive.

Definitely rec! We vacationed there for a week and loved it! Maui was very laid-back, relaxing and fun. Everyone we met were so friendly which made it even more enjoyable. We stayed in Wailea, the south shore of Maui, because we heard that it is the driest part of the island (little to no rain and if any, only for a short period) We did the Road to Hana, Old Lahaina Luau, watched the sunrise at Haleakala, snorkel/boat tour (saw sea turtles and whales), laid out on the beach and ate a ton – delicious food and very inexpensive! We are considering returning to Hawaii for our honeymoon 🙂

Do a board search – you will find lots of info on Maui. Check on Pinterest and TripAdvisor too. Great info there as well!

NBee:  Maui is great for honeymoons.There are lots of old threads about Maui honeymoons so you can search for recommendations.

The reality is that if you go anywhere outside Canada you are going to be affected by the exchange rate.

We are getting married and honeymooning there for the first half of our honeymoon (we’re staying in Kauai the second half)! We’ve both been there multiple times and we love it there!!! I would highly recommend staying near kaanapali beach and depending on your budget, our favorite hotel is definitely the westin! Its perfect because its right on the beach, but also walking distance from shopping and restaurants. 

Some of the things we’ve done in the past are horseback riding, my father and my fiance have both gone up in a helecopter (although I dont remember if that was maui or kauai), swimming with dolphins, and the boat tours are amazing!
