Was a fantastic trip! Moorea was stunning! The island has fantastic food, and was the perfect place to relax and unwind. Sydney was amazing! We did overnight trips to the Hunter Valley (stayed at the Crowne Plaza) and to the Blue Mountains (stayed at a B&B in Katoomba) — 9 days was not long enough though…

Resort: Park Royal Resort
What kind of room? Good question… we should probably find that out! I know it will be a suit though.
How many days? 5 days… but I am hoping we can swing for 7
How much will it cost you? Right now it should be around $600 because his parents own a time-share and were able to do a transfer where we get to stay in an all inclusive for a couple hundred dollars. They were going to lose the weeks either way so we figured, why not use them ourselves!

Resort: The Sheraton in Poipu (3 nights) and a cottage in Kilahuea (7 nights)
What kind of room? We had an AMAZING suite at the Sheraton in Poipu (included three balconies, a huge dining table, jacuzzi bath tub) with almost panoramic ocean views. In Kilaheau, we stayed in a one-room little cottage off the beaten path. It was nice and clean, but definitely was an entirely different level than our baller suite in Poipu.
How many days? 10 days
How much will it cost you? I think the entire trip was about 4500 or 5k. I am not positive, because DH’s parents paid for our accomodations and plane flights. I believe the plane flights were about 1300 total. The cottage was only 120 a night, and we got an incredible deal on the suite in Poipu. Food was expensive though.
Where are you travelling from? San Diego.
