15 Best honeymoon hotels in Maui, Hawaii (affordable to splurge)

Please follow local guidelines to keep yourself and others safe. Also double-check what’s open before your trip, as things are constantly changing.

When you think about honeymoon locations, few are more iconic than Hawaii.

There are several islands to choose from, but Maui and Kauai are considered among the most romantic.

Of course we love both, but Maui is the best island when it comes to hotel choices.

Combine that with oh-so-romantic activities on Maui (like strolling lavender fields and watching the sun rise above the clouds at Haleakala Mountain) and you just can’t go wrong with a honeymoon on Maui.

So, if you’re looking for the best honeymoon hotels in Maui, our curated list has got you covered!

Cocktails by the pool? Of course – it’s your honeymoon!

And suppose you aren’t celebrating your honeymoon but still want the dreamiest getaway?

In that case, the following are the 15 most romantic hotels in Maui (for all budgets) for a proposal, anniversary, babymoon, vow renewal – or just because.

We’ve personally stayed at many of them on different Maui visits. Prepare to be wowed!

3 Tips for choosing the perfect Maui honeymoon hotel

1) Features:

Make a list of your must-have amenities and put them in order of importance.

Do you want a beachfront hotel? Can you live without an ocean view? What about an adults-only place? How far can the hotel be from the Kahului Airport?

Many of the most romantic hotels in Maui are beachfront.
Is a beach hotel in Maui a must for your honeymoon?

Make your list and be realistic.

The more must-haves on your list, the more expensive your romantic hotel will be.

2) Budget:

Decide on your budget. Are you going all out, or did your wedding leave you a bit tapped out?

You don’t want to be tempted to stay at a place you might not be able to afford.

Make this decision before you start your research. That way, you won’t overstretch only to have regrets later.

3) Location:

Choose a location.

Do you want to stay in Wailea in the south? Do Kapalua, Ka’anapali or Lahaina on the west make better sense? Or would you prefer to get off the beaten path?

Of course, if you never plan on leaving the hotel, then location doesn’t matter.

But if you want to adventure around Maui, being off-the-beaten path means paying for transportation everywhere you go, which can drastically add to the honeymoon budget.

Best Honeymoon Hotels in Maui

1) Hotel Wailea

Lounge by the pool, or take the hotel’s free luxury shuttle to its beach club on Wailea Beach (with free chairs, towels, and bottled water)

This is one of the best resorts in Maui for couples because it’s adults-only.

Hotel Wailea is an intimate 5-star hotel, snuggled into the tropical hillside 300 feet above the sea.

Its hillside vantage point offers 180 degree views of the azure ocean, breathtaking gardens and cascading waterfalls below.

Why you’ll love these rooms!

A Relais & Chateaux property, the Hotel Wailea has sophisticated suites with large lanais.
A Relais & Chateaux property, the Hotel Wailea has sophisticated suites with large lanais (and there are no kids to disturb the peace and quiet!)

Unlike most of the other Maui hotels on this list, this resort is small.

With only 72 suites spread out over 15 acres, you may never see another soul – perfect for a romantic honeymoon escape!

The large 720 sq. ft. suites have deep soaking tubs, plush robes and private lanais. Sip champagne while nibbling on a local Hawaiian fruit platter on your balcony overlooking the ocean.

Who’s it for?

Honeymooners looking for an adult-only experience.

Romantic highlights:

Indulge in the Couples Paradise Retreat and let them transform your suite into a spa getaway.

Choose your fave exfoliating body polish and then float away during a couple’s Lomi Lomi massage. Finish with a coconut milk bath, infused with Hawaiian honey.

Also dine inside a private candlelit treehouse with unobstructed views of the ocean and treetops. If you’re there during winter, you might spot breaching whales as you savor your 7-course meal (with wine pairings) from an award-winning chef.

If you’re not married yet, the Hotel Wailea treehouse is a perfect spot for a proposal.

2) Fairmont Kea Lani

The Fairmont brand has always been known for its luxury, and the Kea Lani location is no different.

Even though it’s in Wailea, a well-heeled tourist area, it’s the only hotel on 22 lush acres of beachfront. As a result, it’s quite secluded and one of the best Maui honeymoon resorts.

The snorkeling at Polo Beach in front of the Kea Lanai is good (sea turtles hang out here!) and less crowded than elsewhere in Wailea, so bring snorkeling gear when packing for your Maui trip.

Why you’ll love these rooms!

Even the smallest rooms at the Fairmont Kea Lani are 860 sq. ft. They’re actually all suites, with microwaves and mini-fridges (which we loved for those times when we just wanted a simple meal or snack, rather than eating out).

They also come with oversize lanais large enough for dining and lounging. Each room has a marble bathroom with a separate soaking tub and rain shower too.

The dark woods and tropical vibes of the décor add to the Hawaiian ambiance.

If you splurge on a villa, you’ll have your own plunge pool for nighttime skinny dipping. (You can’t beat hotels with private pools for their wow factor!)

Who’s it for?

The Kea Lani is the perfect choice for couples who want to be in the heart of it all but still feel secluded.

Romantic highlights:

Go for the Grand Romance Package, which includes a 3-night stay in a luxury suite or villa.

You get a Moet & Chandon Champagne welcome gift, daily breakfast for two, a private 4-course dinner (with wine) under the stars by the adult pool and a private poolside cabana for a day.

Add in the Honeymooner Spa package, which is 90 minutes of bliss. Start with side-by-side body scrubs, followed by a massage and a mask made of local organic ingredients.

3) The Plantation Inn

The Plantation Inn is a romantic bed-and-breakfast in Lahaina, Maui.
On the way for a romantic dinner date at Gerard’s Restaurant…

The Plantation Inn is the perfect antidote to the massive kid-filled resorts found on Maui (the island appeals to families, as well as couples). Resembling an old plantation house, this quaint 18-room inn is for adults only.

It’s located in Lahaina town, so it’s not a beachfront property. But at prices that start around $220 USD, who cares?

Plus, The Plantation Inn has exchange privileges with its sister hotel Ka’anapali Beach Hotel. So, you can pop over there for a beach day and use any of their amenities.

The inn also has a secluded pool and jacuzzi within the serene courtyard.

Breakfast is included in your stay – and it just so happens to be prepared by an award-winning French chef.

Why you’ll love these rooms!

With only 14 rooms and 4 suites, the service is highly personalized. Most rooms have an outdoor lanai or patio.

The décor is classically Hawaiian with dark woods and pineapple motifs which give it that laid-back Maui charm.

Who’s it for?

The Plantation Inn is perfect for a romantic getaway or honeymoon for budget-savvy couples – particularly those who would prefer a charming B&B and would rather spend their money on experiences than rooms.

Romantic highlights:

The Plantation Inn is home to Gerard's, one of the best restaurants in Maui.
The outdoor porch at Gerard’s is a romantic spot for dinner

Eat a romantic meal at Gerard’s, one of Maui’s best French restaurants, which is onsite. Pair it with wines for your special night.

Candlelit dinners are served on the porch overlooking the pool (and inside).

Cost:

If you go for a garden room, it’s practically free by Hawaii’s standards.

But if you can, splurge on one of their 600 sq. ft. suites. It’s still a fraction of the price of the rooms at the high-end resorts.

(The king-bedded Luna Suite has doors inlaid with stained glass whale images and a large lanai with views of Lahaina Town.)

4) Four Seasons Resort Maui

Most of the pool cabanas are complimentary at the Four Seasons Resort Maui.

Four Seasons is synonymous with luxury, and since there are two staff members per guest at this hotel, you’ll never have to lift a finger.

From the resort’s unpacking service and Evian spritzes to their ocean-view massage huts and adults-only pool, honeymooners will want for nothing.

If shopping is your idea of romance, there’s a free shuttle to the Shops at Wailea so you can stock up on all your Hawaiian souvenirs

Simply put, the Four Seasons Maui is one of the most lavish and romantic hotels in Maui.

(It’s also a celebrity getaway – on a beach stroll, we once passed Arnold Schwarzenegger in front of the Four Seasons.)

Why you’ll love these rooms! 

A 1,400 sq. ft. Club Oceanfront one-bedroom suite at the Four Seasons Resort Maui
There’s lots of room to spread out here in this 1,400 sq. ft. Club Oceanfront one-bedroom suite at the Four Seasons

The neutral-colored rooms have navy accents, deep soaking tubs and large private lanais. The massive bathroom makes getting ready for your hot date night a breeze.

Sliding glass doors open out to your lanai, allowing ocean breezes to remind you why you chose Hawaii for your honeymoon.

Who’s it for?

Honeymooners who want their needs met before they realize they even have them will be tickled here. (And it’s best for honeymooners who are happy to pay for the utmost in luxury.)

Romantic highlights:

You can’t dream too big for the Four Seasons’ concierges.

Hop in their Porsche Roadster and head out for a gourmet picnic in a secluded location.

Or have them book you a couples massage in the open-air hale while listening to waves lap the shore below?

Or how about a consultation with the chef for a private dinner in a secret spot overlooking the beach?

Cost: 

Splurge – the prices are steep, but you get what you pay for at this luxury resort.

Pro tip: Do you want a super secluded honeymoon on Hawaii’s smallest inhabited island? Then check out the two Four Seasons in Lanai. (We stayed at both hotels and compare them in our post.)

5) Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa

The Hyatt Regency Maui Resort (which just finished a complete reno in early 2021) is set on a lovely oceanfront property.

The newly reimagined Hyatt is located on 40 acres of paradise known as Ka’anapali Beach.

The hotel offers hula lessons, lei-making (and other cultural) classes and luaus.

But the cherry on top of the paradisical cake is six freeform pools with waterfalls overlooking the ocean. Plus, with 10 on-site restaurants, you’ll never need to leave the property.

Why you’ll love these rooms!

All the rooms have recently been renovated and have private lanais with glass railings. Your views are unobstructed. Earth tones and rich woods give the modern rooms a Hawaiian Islands vibe.

If you opt for a suite, you’ll get two lanais. And when it comes to honeymoon views, two are always better than one!

Who’s it for?

This is the ideal hotel for honeymooners who love incredible pools – and wildlife. At 9:30 every morning, resident African black-footed penguins come out for a feed.

If penguins aren’t your thing, there are swans, flamingos and other exotic birds on site.

Romantic highlights:

The Hyatt Regency was named the world’s top hotel for stargazing, so make sure you check out their Tour of the Stars program. What’s more romantic than stargazing with your lover?

Also attend a traditional luau featuring a Samoan fire knife dance and a plated feast at your private candlelit dining table.

Cost: 

Midrange for Hawaii.

6) Ho’oilo House

Ho'oilo House is one of the best hotels in Maui for couples.
Ho’oilo House welcomes you in its reception area with wide windows offering romantic ocean views

Ho’oilo House is an upscale and intimate bed-and-breakfast for adults. Set just outside of historic Lahaina, it’s a few minutes away from Ka’anapali Beach.

It’s touted as Maui’s most luxurious B&B.

And you can feel good about staying here too.

As socially responsible hotel proprietors, the B&B owners make donations to various wildlife companies for every night you stay in certain rooms. (Stay in the Kohola and Honu rooms, for example, and a donation goes to Maui’s Pacific Whale Foundation.)

Why you’ll love these rooms!

For a start, there are only six rooms, so it’ll feel quaint and homey staying here. And with breezy passageways between them, the rooms feel more like private bungalows.

Each room is designed differently but pays homage to Hawaiian nature and all its gifts.

They’re full of light and have handcrafted wooden furniture. The Wailele room has a Chinese “Chow” bed with a headboard made from an antique carved door.

And all rooms have private outdoor showers, so you can pretend you’re living in the middle of a rainforest. Not a bad way to spend an amorous afternoon!

Each bathroom has a unique tub too; one has a hammered copper bathtub.

Only a few rooms have ocean views, so if that’s important, call to see what’s available.

Who’s it for?

Ho’oilo House is the best place to stay in Maui for couples who prefer a quiet B&B over a large resort. (The grounds include a meditation gazebo, in addition to a pool.)

Pool at Ho'oilo House in Maui
Who needs a beach when you can chill by a pool as lovely as this!

Romantic highlights:

Staying here is like having your own private home in Maui.

And if you book the Ultimate R&R Package (relaxation and romance), you’ll start the afternoon with side-by-side (in room) signature spa treatments, and then follow that up with a private dinner on your lanai made by one of the island’s top chefs.

Add some dark chocolate-covered strawberries and bubbly, and no romantic stone has been left unturned.

Cost: 

Downright cheap by Hawaiian standards.

7) Grand Wailea

Set on 40 acres of prime oceanfront property, the massive Grand Wailea is indeed grand!

It’s three hotels in one.

The Grand Wailea Signature rooms and suites offer the first tier of luxury in the thick of all the pools and restaurants.

The Napua Club is an exclusive boutique hotel within the resort grounds and a step up in indulgence. In the private Club lounge, you can take advantage of complimentary perks like continental breakfast and, from 4pm to 7pm, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and desserts.

And the Ho’Olei Villas offer top-of-the-line extravagance from private ocean view villas.

Why you’ll love these rooms!

Rooms and suites are bright and airy, with Waldorf Astoria branded linens. The oversized tub is perfect for those romantic flower-petal-strewn baths.

With lanais, plush bathrobes and a Keurig coffee maker, you might be hard-pressed to leave.

Who’s it for?

This Wailea resort is paradise for couples who want to choose their level of luxury within the Waldorf Astoria brand and have it all at their fingertips (nine pools, waterslides, a lazy river, onsite scuba diving lessons, four restaurants, luaus and tours of the resort’s $30 million art collection).

Sure, it's big and grand, but the Grand Wailea is a beautiful Maui hotel for couples too.

Romantic highlights:

Head to the Mohalu Spa, Hawaii’s largest spa (50,000 sq. ft.) and one of the best spas in Maui.

You can get side-by-side services in a private spa room.

Check out sumptuous treatments like whipped honey and macadamia oil massages and bee propolis face masks. Get pampered from head to toe.

8) Hana-Maui Resort

Fields with horses, rolling pastures and the sea - the Hana-Maui boasts a bucolic location in Hana, Maui.
Fields with horses, rolling pastures and the sea – the Hana-Maui boasts a bucolic location in Hana

Hana-Maui (formerly the Travaasa Hana) is a serene hideaway along the coastal cliffs of the east coast.

It’s the perfect place to base yourself if you and your babe want to enjoy the Road to Hana (the most scenic drive in Maui), go on secluded hikes and dive into the best waterfalls on Maui.

The setting alone makes it one of the most romantic Maui hotels. It offers multiple fairy-tale backdrops for special occasions and, at the very least, for stealing a kiss.

But… And this is an important “but.” It’s probably not the best place to stay for your entire honeymoon, as it’s quite a bit more rustic and not as luxurious as most of the other hotels on this list.

We have, however, stayed here and basked in its stunning location.

Why you’ll love these rooms!

There are only 74 rustic rooms spread across 66 lush tropical acres. Even at full capacity, it’ll feel like you have the place to yourself.

Some rooms have a private hot tub, and many have no phones, alarm clocks, TVs or radios to interrupt and spoil your honeymoon mood.

All the rooms have private lanais, and we recommend the bungalows vs. the rooms.

Who’s it for?

This one’s easy. It suits honeymooners who love the road less traveled – and those who want to hang out in Hana for a few days.

Romantic highlights:

The concierge can set up a tour of Hawaiian culinary delicacies and wine tasting. After your return, head straight to the ocean-view spa and take advantage of the indoor-outdoor showers, eucalyptus steam room, hot and cold plunge pools and sauna.

Then get pampered with traditional Hawaiian healing treatments using all local ingredients.

Cost:

Reasonable for bungalows with ocean views.

9) The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua

Pool at The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, Maui
You and your honey won’t lack for things to do at The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua (that is, when you can tear yourself away from the pool)

The Ritz Carlton is definitely one of the most romantic resorts in Maui, and we love it there.

At the AAA Five-Diamond Ritz Carlton, it’s all about the little touches – like the cards with Hawaiian mo’olelo stories placed on your pillow at nightly turndown service.

The 5-star property is situated on 54 areas of ocean-front land. There are miles of hiking trails, six golden sand beaches, tennis courts and championship golf courses to explore.

The six onsite restaurants feature ingredients from their sustainable organic garden.

Why you’ll love these rooms!

All 466 newly reimagined rooms and suites have indoor and outdoor sitting areas. They feature dark hardwood floors, oversized soaking tubs and outdoor showers.

Artwork in the rooms is created by local artists. And floor-to-ceiling windows allow the beautiful Hawaiian sunshine to stream in.

You’ll feel like you’re in the lap of luxury from the moment you walk in and see the azure ocean from the bed.

Who’s it for?

Honeymooners and couples who love golf should tee off their Maui stay here.

The Ritz-Carlton is right by two championship golf courses, so you have your choice of where to hit the links.

Lunch overlooking the fairway at The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua
How about a game of golf, then lunch overlooking the fairway?

With a pro-challenging layout, the recently renovated Plantation Course has welcomed Tiger Woods, Justin Leonard and other golf greats.

The Bay Course (designed by Arnold Palmer and Frances Duane) is more player friendly – and it has a spectacular 17th hole that plays over the ocean.

Romantic highlights:

If, for you, romance equals adventure, then hop in a helicopter and fly over the Haleakala Crater, lush rainforests and cascading waterfalls.

If you prefer to stay on land, go horseback riding through pineapple fields in the Kapalua resort area.

Or better yet, hop on board a private yacht for an afternoon of snorkeling and whale watching (in season). Then stay on for a sumptuous picnic dinner. 

It can all be booked at the Ritz-Carlton.

Cost: 

Splurge – when you want the best of the best and don’t mind paying for it.

Ritz-Carlton Kapalua: Check rates and availability

10) Inn at Mama’s Fish House

Don’t let the name fool you. The Inn at Mama’s Fish House is luxury with an old-world Polynesian charm.

It also happens to be known for its great restaurant, Mama’s Fish House (where the freshest of fish is the highlight, naturally).

Tropical and romantic, the Inn at Mama’s Fish House has all the modern amenities of the big resorts. Yet, it’s a world away – it’s nestled in a coconut grove on a tiny sliver of secluded beach on Maui’s north shore.

Hammocks for two hang from the palm trees in between its 12 cottages.

Why you’ll love these rooms!

All the rooms are different, but they feature Polynesian décor with unique local woodwork and tropical flowers strewn everywhere.

The daily fruit bowl and banana bread are welcome morning treats to savor on your private lanai as the ocean breezes tickle your cheeks. 

Some rooms have large whirlpool tubs. Others have oversized 6-head showers plus full kitchens with Wolf and Subzero appliances and All-Clad cookware.

Who’s it for?

The Inn at Mama’s Fish House is one of the best hotels in Maui for couples who want a quiet paradise of their own, away from the masses.

Romantic highlights:

Have the Inn set up a tour of the lavender fields nearby.

They can also organize a private sunrise hike up Mt. Haleakala for that perfect honeymoon photo-op. Or book your own private guided hike in Haleakala Crater (two 2-mile hikes on both sides of the mountain, plus lunch).

Cost: 

Midrange for Hawaii.

11) Andaz Maui

Luxurious in a very mod way, the Andaz Maui is one of the smartest hotels in Maui for couples

The newest of the Maui honeymoon hotels on our list, the Andaz Maui is part of the Hyatt family of resorts.

It’s a luxury hotel situated on 15 beachfront acres in the Wailea area. Mokapu Beach, right in front, is a gorgeous golden sand beach.

And with three infinity pools, one lagoon pool and one adult pool to choose from, you’ll have no problem finding your Zen.

The design is contemporary, but the Andaz still feels beachy and laid-back, especially because it’s a pet-friendly hotel.

And if that’s not enough, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s restaurant serves superb sushi from Maui’s freshest local fish.

Why you’ll love these rooms!

Each room has a private lanai to let you indulge in all the island views. The rooms also have rain showers big enough for two and complimentary minibars with snacks and non-alcoholic beverages.

If you opt for a luxurious villa – it’s your honeymoon after all! – you’ll have a private plunge pool or hot tub for those starry-eyed nights. 

Who’s it for?

If you don’t dare leave your furry four-legged friend behind, the Andaz Maui has got you covered.

Romantic highlights

Indulge in the 6-hour Unite Spa Journey in their Awili Spa couples suite – complete with a soaking tub, rain shower and ocean views.

First, you’ll have an apothecary blending experience to customize your products. Then you’ll have a scalp treatment, bath ritual, massage and lunch with a glass of bubbly and a pedicure.

It’s a full day of honeymoon bliss!

With a Bali vibe, Paia Inn is your boho chic home-away-from-home.

It’s located on a beautiful beach in the north of the island, away from the crowds, in a surf town of the same name.

The hotel is steps away from the cute town center – plus it’s right by a 3-mile stretch of white sand beach – so you have the best of both worlds.

To avoid sand in your bikini, you can lounge on the lush lawn overlooking the beach.

Why you’ll love these rooms!

A Paia Inn guestroom

Every room is different, but they all have travertine bathrooms and bamboo floors. Go for a suite, not one of the smaller rooms (some of which have street views and a little traffic noise).

The best part is that you’re soooo close to the beach, ideal for your stargazing midnight strolls.

Who’s it for?

You’ll feel more like locals here than you will at the 5-star resorts in Wailea or Kapalua. And the price tag is much easier on the budget.

Appealing? Then the Paia Inn has a bed for you.

Romantic highlights:

Take a sunset cruise on a sailing catamaran, an activity booked through the hotel.

Enjoy drinks as the sun goes down while you sail along Maui’s scenic coast. Once you moor in a sheltered cove, you’ll feast on a mouthwatering 4-course meal. After dinner, the starlight cruise continues with cocktails.

Cost:

Very affordable when compared to the others on this list.

13) Montage Kapalua Bay

Rooms at the Montage Kapalua are residences with full kitchens.
Want all the conveniences of home? Rooms at the Montage Kapalua are residences with full kitchens

The Montage Kapalua is on every list of the best honeymoon resorts in Maui – and for good reason.

Hugging the picturesque waters of Namalu Bay on 24 acres of paradise, it’s somewhat of an island oasis.

Located within the Kapalua resort area (along with #9 The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua), the property’s landscaped grounds are home to koi ponds, an infinity pool and a knock-out fitness center.

If you go snorkeling at the beach, chances are good you’ll spot sea turtles.

And the rooms aren’t just mere rooms. All 50 rooms are residence-style homes. Each has a separate living and dining room, laundry and full kitchen. The smallest one-bedroom starts at 1,250 sq. ft.

Why you’ll love these rooms!

What’s not to love in your fully appointed residence with your own private lanai, a bathtub big enough for two and a walk-in closet! They’re totally luxurious and bigger than many condos in Hawaii.

Who’s it for?

If you have champagne tastes (and budget), then you'll love the Montage Kapalua, Maui.
If you have champagne tastes (and a champagne budget), then you’ll love the Montage Kapalua!

The Montage Kapalua is one of the absolute best places to stay in Maui for couples and honeymooners who want to spend their time in a fully appointed home vs. a hotel room – and don’t mind robbing the bank to do so.

Romantic highlights:

Award-winning Chef Riko can customize a fine dining degustation style menu with wine pairing in the comfort of your own residence. You can help him cook, or sit back and enjoy the live band serenading you.

If you fancy bubbles at sunset, head to the Champagne Hale at Cliff House for the best views in the resort (along with a spot of whale watching in winter).

Every Saturday night, the Montage also shows a movie under the stars by the pool. So, grab a bottle of bubbly, put on your swimmers and chill out with your honey under the night sky.

The Montage is the best hotel in Maui for a honeymoon where you’ll spare no expense.

Cost: 

Super splurge – the most expensive on this list.

If you’re not snorkeling at the adjacent Ka’anapali Beach, then hanging out at the Sheraton’s 142-yard lagoon-style pool is a choice place to spend your honeymoon. It has waterfalls, lava rock waterways, bridges and a small waterslide.

The resort’s manicured grounds are gorgeous to walk through while listening to waves crash on the shore.

And don’t miss the cliff diving! Since 1963, every day at sunset, the iconic cliff diving ceremony takes place to pay homage to the Hawaiian gods.

Why you’ll love these rooms!

Most of the 4-star resort’s 508 newly renovated rooms and suites have breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, Lanai and Molokai. Enjoy a bottle of bubbly from the lanai as you watch the sun dip into the ocean.

Who’s it for?

Couples who want luxury without stuffiness.

Romantic highlights:

Dining under the stars is the perfect way to spend an intimate evening.

Choose from a table set in a lush tropical garden beside a slowly cascading waterfall or a private beachfront dinner bungalow. You’ll get a personal butler serving you a 4- to 5-course menu, featuring Hawaii-inspired foods like filet, fresh fish and decadent desserts.

Another highlight: After a day in the sun, grab a S’mores kit and sit with your honey at the resort’s firepit. What’s better than having dessert with your own hot dish?

15) Royal Lahaina Resort

Who says beach front hotels are expensive? Enjoy a romantic yet affordable honeymoon stay at the Royal Lahaina Resort in Maui.
Who says beachfront hotels are expensive? Enjoy a romantic yet affordable honeymoon stay at the Royal Lahaina Resort

The Royal Lahaina Resort is a beachfront oasis on the golden sands of Ka’anapali Beach. Home to Maui’s longest-running ocean-front luau, the resort is a place to learn about the vibrant and colorful Polynesian culture.

You can choose from beach cottages or rooms and suites in the Lahaina Kai Tower, but we recommended the beach cottages. They’re currently being renovated, but Cottage E is away from the tower and closest to the ocean.

The Tower rooms have also been renovated and have ocean views.

As for pools, drink your handcrafted cocktail in one of the three pools or hot tubs.

Why you’ll love these rooms!

Each of the 441 modern rooms and suites pay homage to the island. With custom teak furnishings and local artwork, the neutral-colored rooms take a back seat to the ocean view from your private lanai.

After you spend the day at the spa, snuggle away in the feather top mattress and Egyptian cotton sheets.

Who’s it for?

This is one of the best Maui resorts for couples who want affordable luxury and don’t care about a name brand.

Romantic highlights:

Have the concierge set up a romantic 4-course dinner sail or stargazing cruise.

And get a souvenir honeymoon portrait taken by a professional photographer at a stunning secret location at the resort.
