Big Island or Maui for 6 nights?

Jump to last reply

My DH and I thought we had our dates all planned for our upcoming February trip:

Maui - Sunday through Saturday - 4 nights at Hyatt Maui, then 2 nights at Fairmont Kea Lani
BI - Saturday through Weds at Fairmont Orchid
Kauai - Weds through Monday at Grand Hyatt

I got the Fairmont credit card specifically to get the two free nights at the Kea Lani, as I really wanted to stay on "both sides" of the island per a few friends' recommendations, but I waited too long to book the Kea Lani as once the free nights posted to my account, there were no longer any rooms available (not surprised as it's Valentine's Day, but the nights were available just two days earlier when I checked).

So I could use the two free nights at the Fairmont Orchid instead, and just switch my inter-island flight from Saturday to Thursday. My husband thinks I'm going to be disappointed that I've shortchanged my Maui time, but everything I've read says we need at least 5 days to really see the Big Island, so I think this way might be better? I don't know, I'm having a hard time deciding.

If I do decide to keep my flight plans the same and spend 6 nights on Maui, then I have to keep my fingers crossed that something either opens up at the Kea Lani where I can use my Fairmont free nights, or something opens up at the Hyatt and I can use points there. Right now that is totally booked as well.
