Hawaii, San Francisco and Las Vegas Honeymoon

Jump to last reply

I am planning my honeymoon just now with Hawaii, San Francisco and Las Vegas in mind. We will be leaving a cold and wet Scotland in early February for sunny and warm climes (I know not peak time but still a lot sunnier and warmer than Scotland!).

Before I start I’d like to speak a little about Anne and I so you can get an idea of what we are like and what we like from a holiday...

Since meeting in 2009 we have holidayed in the Mediterranean including a cruise of Italy and South France, island breaks to tripadvisors number 2 hotel in the world (Anastasis Apartments) in Santorini, Greece (amazing!!!!), a city break to Barcelona (I’m not a fan) and cities throughout the UK including London, York, Manchester and Chester.

Previous to that Anne has been to San Diego, Toronto, New York and various places throughout eastern and western Europe. I’ve been to Santiago, Buenos Aires, New York, golf and beach holidays in Spain and various cities throughout Europe as well as ski holidays in Europe.

So hopefully now you have an idea of the kind of holiday we like, from our honeymoon I would like a start that is as relaxed as possible, sun, sea, spa, cocktails and generally relaxing in an exotic location then follow it with a city break. Anne would be devastated at the thought of us going to Las Vegas for our honeymoon but I’m taking her there for her favourite show (Phantom of the Opera) and we’ll see Cirque du Soleil while we’re there.

Anne is not at all in to hiking, climbing, biking or any other sort of mountain or trecking activities.


For the sunny part I’m sure my fiancée (Anne) will love Hawaii therefore I’ve come up with the following itinerary

Maui, Hawaii – 5 nights
West side of Big Island, Hawaii – 5 nights
Waikiki beach, Oahu, Hawaii – 5 nights
Union Square, San Francisco – 6 nights
Las Vegas – 2 nights

What do people think about that?


I originally had Maui and Kauai for ultimate relaxation. Then I thought I should really go to Oahu since I’m travelling to the other side of the world and then added the Big Island.



As you’ll see I’ve dropped Kauai for the Big Island, I have also considered dropping Maui and spending more time on the Big Island so it doesn’t feel like we’re constantly on the move. Given the fact we’d probably take a drive/trip to the Volcano and national park to see what I’m sure would be an incredible sight is it worth it if we no interest in climbing or walking? Also I don’t want to be based on the east of the Big Island since it’s wet. We get enough rain in Scotland!

Your thoughts are welcome.
