I really would LOVE to go to Hawaii for our honeymoon! We would like to go for about two weeks. I have heard that Hawaii is very expensive and I am just curious about HOW expensive. Has anyone gotten a good deal on a Hawaii honeymoon?!

My sister went on her honeymoon 2 years a go. They spent about $4000 for a week, and flew from the east coast!

We got an AMAZING deal on our upcoming Kauai honeymoon. 12 nights in a hotel, the flights over and a rental card all for $2200 total (for both of us, not per person!). Part of it is because September is the low point of tourist season for HI, so things are just a lot cheaper than.
Oh, we booked it though Expedia.

Definitely use exppedia, orbitz or priceline. Much cheaper that way. We booked through priceline and got a pretty good deal. Just over 4,000 for both of us, for 11 nights. That seems like a lot compared to @sandiegoali but we are going in December which is why the prices are higher. Go in the off season if at all possible! Congrats!

My sister in law went with bro in law to Hawaii for their honeymoon. They are in CO, but I know it’s more expensive when you’re an east coaster! A similar “feel” is St. Lucia, closer and cheaper for east-coasters though! I do want to go to Hawaii one day and also to polynesia too.
I’d surf kayak and see what specials are going on. Also check on hotels and hotwire and priceline. I have bid for travel in the past and gotten fabulous deals at amazing hotels btw!

We are getting married in October so I am not sure what season that is considered in Hawaii. We have to either go to Aruba or Hawaii since we are getting married in Ocotber and its Hurricane season…I am not taking any chances!!

I think the biggest factor is: how luxurious of a honeymoon do you need?? A major cost is going to be the airfare – especially if you’re flying to the East coast.
I would recommend checking out http://www.travelzoo.com for their deals and specials. You might find some!
I made it to New Zealand and Australia for 3 weeks for $4000 per person (5 seperate flights, all hotels, and food)…. and Europe (Paris, Prague and Budapest all flights and hotels) for a week and a half for $1800. You can do just about anything if you’re flexible!!

We are doing two weeks in November flying from NYC. We were lucky enough to have miles for airfare and points for one of the hotels but before we used them, the price for airfare, hotels, car rentals, excursions and spending money was close to $10,000.

We spend $950 on flight – that included and inter-island flight as well – We traveled from the east coast. Rooms varied – both the Hyatt and St. Regis on Kauai were $3-400 a night. On Maui we stayed at the Westin – it was free because we had starwood points but probably cheaper than the other two..then you have to get a car too. We spend ALOT of money on food and drinks – lunches and dinners everynight, but you can definitely scale that bag – we just like eating..and then you have the excursions which aren’t cheap either..I think ziplining was $300 for both of us , $70 for surfing, A$150 for a happy hour cruise..

My Fiance and I are honeymooning in HI too! We are spending 1 week in Kauai, then 1 week split between Oahu & Maui in mid-April next year.. So far, we have booked our flights from/to Toronto and inter-island for a total of CAD$2240 for us both inclusive of insurance. We are blessed with a generous relative who gave us a week’s worth of timeshare accommodations in Kauai. But we have set a budget of $4000 for everything else: hotels in Oahu & Maui, car rentals, tours, food & shopping.

We booked our Hawaiin honeymoon on Orbitz. We’re going for 7 nights and it only cost $1,300 for the flights and hotel.

We were torn between Maui and Los Cabos and ended up doing Los Cabos since it was less expensive. But then again I was being really princessy and only willing to stay at the 4 Seasons Maui so basing prices off of that. And in Cabo we stayed at the Hilton which is obviously automatically a lot less expensive.

One way to save in Hawaii is to rent an apartment or house instead of a hotel. Hotels are VERY expensive and so is eating out. If you can cook occassionally and bring your accomodation cost down, you’ll see a big difference . I’m on Oahu now .

@Miss Bella: As someone that has been to Mexico and Hawaii (Oahu) many times… & stayed at the nicest resort on Hawaii. Go to mexico
It is cheaper and is just as nice with less wildlife (sharks in the water)
I actually prefer the gentleness of the waves, ocean in Mexico over Hawaii as well, the sand is prettier and the water is clearer 🙂
