Honeymoon Help! Lanai and Kauai, or Lanai and Maui?

Jump to last reply

Hello! We are planning on Hawaii for our November honeymoon later this year. My fiancée and I wouldn't classify ourselves as "tropical" people.. we tend to prefer something cozy in the mountains, lots of sight seeing, castles, beautiful lakes and treelines, etc. But our honeymoon seems like the perfect time to give Hawaii a try! I have no doubt we'll love it since we are easily amused and taken by beautiful scenery, so now it's just a matter of which islands to try. We'll be doing about 5 nights on one island, and 4 on another.

I think we've settled on ENDING our honeymoon with 4 nights on Lanai at the Lodge at Koele because it looks like a very unique part of Hawaii with its country manor that's more our "style". I'm nervous about it being such a small and possibly expensive island, but we are looking forward to it. The pictures look amazing and it has a very charming appeal that we both really want in our honeymoon. It seems like the best of both words for us; tropical meets English style country manor!

Our decision for the FIRST portion of our trip (5 nights) lies between Kauai and Maui, and this is mostly where we need some advice. We like Kauai because we've read time and again that it's the most beautiful of the islands, and that's very important to us. However Maui seems like one of the most popular islands with tons to do.. we don't necessarily "need" great nightlife, but it would be fun to have lots of options and to contrast our relaxing Lanai island with something more exciting. And besides.. it's Hawaii, I'm sure Maui is beautiful too!

I'm concerned that if we do Kauai and Lanai that they will be too similar.. very peaceful and beautiful, but not as much to do. I figure Lanai will be the big "sit and relax" portion of our honeymoon while the first island will be our more adventurous activities. Do you think this combination would be too laid back? I don't want to get tired of seeing the same things. We want some excitement!

On the other hand, if we do Maui and Lanai, I'm afraid we would miss out at some of the best sights Hawaii has to offer by skipping Kauai. At the end of the day, I think we'd rather see absolutely beautiful landscapes and scenery that we can't find anywhere else. But we still want to have FUN too, aside from that!

Decisions decisions. Any advice from some of you have been to all three islands?
