- Wedding: November 2014 - 11/15/14-Vineyard
We had our honeymoon there in November and it was AWESOME!! We stayed at the Grand Wailea, rented a car and did a lot of mentioned above that I highly recommend. At Grand Wailea, they also have a beach right in front and although all beaches are public, for guests they do have towel service, lounge chairs and beach umbrellas for guests to use and they will help set you up out there.
Yes, all the restaurants in Grand Wailea are phenomenal! The Humuhumunukunukuakua (sp?) was our 1st night romantic dinner, we got complimentary champagne and dessert, it’s all open overlooking the ocean at sunset. Amazing food. Amazing.
We found a little hole in the wall breakfast place we went to a lot in Kihei called Kihei Caffee. Inexpensive and awesome omelettes/breakfast food, you eat outdoors on the patio overlooking the beach across the street.
Definitely do the Road to Hana, total all day trip, be prepared for rain as on that side it rains a lot, colder weather but a total must do. Lots of waterfalls along the way, photo ops, swimming, etc.
We also did the molokini snorkeling and then they took us to turtle town to snorkel and there were turtles swimming all around us. It was such a wonderful experience. The fish and reefs were so pretty. I will never ever forget that! Don’t have a fear of it. They have life jackets and even “noodles” you can hold on to. Underwater cameras they rent and give you a CD afterward. You can always stay on the boat if you want but you really should go.
We also did a sunset dinner on a catamaran that was adult only and so romantic. Great food and staff and they had drinks (of course) and take your out and after the sun goes down, looking at the stars on the deck snuggled up with your honey..ahhh. They even told us to lay down on the tarps up front so we were laying there just looking up at the stars for awhile, we slow danced on the front deck to the soft jazz music they had playing. Definitely romantic!
We also had many people recommend a magic comedy show in Lahaina that is Warren and Annabelle’s and OMG it was soooooo funny. It’s a small venue only about 70 people at a time and it was hilarious. HIGHLY recommend it. So glad it was recommended to us.
I heard watching the sunrise at the top of the volcano is an experience as well. We just didn’t want to get up that early to go up there.
