Hawaii Honeymoon

I was so excited to use the new Google map feature on Hubpages, so here goes.

I like people watching. Since I live in Hawaii, I see tourists from all over the world. There are some celebrating their anniversaries, birthday or family reunions. The ones I enjoy watching the most are those on their honeymoons. They actually can be from all age groups - some of them are in their 20s, 30s, 40s all the way up to 80s and 90s (yes, believe it!). Since I live close to the Polynesian Cultural Center, I witness as these newlywed couples always invited up on stage to dance as the featured entertainer can sing the Hawaiian Wedding Song to them. Couples from all walks of life participate.

Hawaii does offer a lot for couples celebrating their honeymoon. There are several venues that cater to them. It is definitely a place to suit your own tastes and fulfil all your dreams.

You can choose to go to a secret hideway where you can get away from the busy hustle and bustle and relax in private. Or, you can enjoy a romantic new adventure together by joining in on a luau and enjoy the sites and sounds of the city.

There are a few particular places I wish to highlight that are wonderful for honeymooners.

The first one is very close to where I live. When we have guests, we often take them there to eat, swim or stay, if they prefer. It is located on the North Shore of Oahu and it is called the Turtle Bay Resort. It is definitely one of the most romantic places on earth! They even have wedding packages, which include limosine, Pikake Suite, oceanfront deluxe guestroom and all the rest.

Not only do they have an outstanding website. Every guest room at the Turtle Bay boasts a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean. They have so many fun activities going on all the time. You can enjoy a massage, a spa, a dip in their relaxing well-landscaped pools, walk along their beaches which are five miles long, or enjoy watching the surfers catch waves closeby. There are several restaurants available with first class dining. If that is not enough, they have many trails you can hike as well as horse back riding, helicopter tours and get this - segway trail rides.

You don't have to just believe me, check it out for yourself. I promise you will not be disappointed. It is literally one of my favorite places to go.

Another special location is set near tropical rain forests, closeby active volcanoes and white sand beaches. The Fairmont Orchid is on the Big Island on the Kohala Coast. They offer bugalows which are designed especially for honeymooners.

You can enjoy a waterfall massage, get cozy in the spa or watch sea turtles nearby. They also have tennis, golfing, and plenty of water sports available. You can check it out at at fairmont.com/orchid. During certain times of the year you can actually see the snow atop Mauna Kea - yes snow in Hawaii.

Whichever hotel you decide to spend in for your honeymoon in Hawaii, be sure to indulge in chocolate covered macadamia nuts, enjoy the fragrance of the many tropical exotic flowers, enjoy the tradewinds and the soft sand beaches.

Be sure to write down your feelings, and take plenty of pictures.

My hubbie and me use every occasion of a getaway, and call them all another honeymoon. Perhaps, one day we can go there as well, just for the fun of it.
