While some Maui honeymooners choose to see and do it all like a normal vacation, for many, a honeymoon is a chance to slow down or indulge in the finer side of what the island has to offer. Here are some of the top romantic things to do on Maui as well as some pretty luxurious experiences:
1.Stay at the Four Seasons. Nothing sets the mood for a once in a lifetime vacation like a luxurious place to stay, and nobody does luxury like the Four Seasons. Spend afternoons lounging around the adults only infinity pool that overlooks the ocean being pampered with five star service. Read about my 5 favorite Maui honeymoon resorts here.

2.Have dinner at Mama’s Fish House. Mama’s Fish House, the epitome of relaxed fine dining, is a don’t miss for all visitors to Maui, but especially those on their honeymoon. Located beachfront on the north shore, the setting, service, and food all contribute to an unbelievable experience at Hawaii’s most memorable restaurant. Read more about Mama’s here.
3.Get a couple’s massage. The classic honeymoon activity. The Grand Wailea has the most impressive spa facilities, but treatments at the Andaz, Fairmont Kea Lani, and Four Seasons are all phenomenal. On the west side, the Ritz Carlton and Montage are the lap of luxury.

4.Go beach hopping. Honeymoons are mostly about relaxing and there’s no better place to do that than at the beach. Read about my favorite Maui beaches here.

5.Take a tour through the upcountry. I think Maui’s most unexplored region is its most special. You might think you were in the hill country of Texas or the high meadows of Colorado if you couldn’t look out and see the ocean. Maui’s upcountry (mostly cowboy country and ranchland) is full of special drives, epic views, and local spots to explore. Read my full upcountry guide here.

6.Watch sunset at Haleakala. Watching a sunset anywhere is super romantic, but watching one atop a 10,000-foot dormant volcano is pretty special. Most people come for sunrise, but sunset has its own beauty and it’s less of a hassle than going up for sunrise (i.e. no 2AM wakeup call, 60 day in advance reservation, or sub arctic temperatures).
