Go on a hike

Horseback ride

Listen to the sounds of birds and breezes and the roar of crashing waves and swaying palms. Explore the beautiful paths of Turtle Bay and experience peace and tranquillity in Hawaii. While staying in Hawaii take a trail, private, evening or sunset horseback ride with your love and create a memory you will never forget!

Learn to surf or stand-up paddle board

Try something new and exciting together and learn how to surf or stand-up paddle board at one of Hawaii’s most beautiful beaches. The Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa is just steps from the white sands of Waikiki Beach, the perfect place to learn how! And, if visiting during winter, drive down to the North Shore together to watch the world’s best surfers ride Hawaii’s biggest waves.                                   

Pamper yourself at the spa  

Indulge in sensuous spa treatments to relax and unwind with your partner. Awaken your senses with an extensive selection of tropical facials, rejuvenating body scrubs, detoxifying wraps or tension-relieving massages at the Anara Spa at Grand Hyatt Kauai.

Renew your vows

Want to fall in love all over again? When staying at the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort, complimentary vow renewal ceremonies are offered weekly to registered guests. Renew your vows in a unique Hawaiian ceremony, with the rising sun, the ocean and the beach as your witness.


Snorkel in gorgeous Hanauma Bay marine sanctuary’s calm clear waters among brilliantly-coloured fish and gentle sea turtles. This incredible bay is situated between two dormant volcanic craters on the south-west tip of Oahu and its pristine, shallow waters are home to a wide variety of marine life, making it one of the most amazing places to snorkel on the island. Head southeast of the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort for this once in a life time snorkelling experience together.

Wine and dine

What could be more romantic then dinner in a tropical paradise? Imagine the most romantic of dinners created especially for the two of you. The Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa has private ocean-side dining, served by candlelight under a secluded, oceanfront canopy that is sure to be one of the most romantic memories of your vacation. Relax in your own corner of the world, as you toast to your love under the Hawaiian night sky.
