Honeymoon: How Much Time on Lanai vs. Maui?

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I have finally decided that we'll be heading to Hawaii for our honeymoon (original idea, right?). We think we'll be staying somewhere between 10 and 14 days. We've decided to start our stay on Lanai at the Lodge at Keole, where we can relax and do nothing. We also know we want to end our stay with 5 nights at the Four Seasons Wailea on Maui - but probably won't be able to afford many more nights than that.

Now - the question is, what (if anything) should we do in the middle? We are trying to decide how many days to do on Lanai, and whether it makes sense to stay at both the Lodge and Manale Bay. Can we stay on Lanai for more than 4 or 5 days before going out of our minds with boredom? If not, should we try to hit another island before heading to Maui, or stay at a less-expensive resort in Maui before heading to the Four Seasons? Last year we spent 5 days in Maui but could have stayed much longer.

We've been to the Big Island and didn't love it as much as Maui - and probably wouldn't want to return...

Anyone care to weigh in with their suggestions? Thanks in advance for your advice!
