Forget the crowded beaches and generic resorts – Hawaii has something way more special waiting for you and your other half. Imagine saying “I do” on a secluded Maui bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, or honeymooning in a charming town where aloha spirit meets coastal bliss. That’s Hana-Maui Resort, your secret Hawaiian escape nestled along the famed Road to Hana. This scenic route winds its way along Maui’s northern coast, and trust me, the views are unreal. Lush rainforests, cascading waterfalls – it’s pure paradise.

Hana-Maui Resort is an oasis right in the heart of it all. With only 66 rooms spread across 75 acres, it feels intimate and secluded, perfect for a romantic escape. Plus, they have these amazing bungalows and family residences, so you can find the perfect space for your guests.

Here’s the best part: getting there is half the fun!  Their Plane to Paradise Package whisks you away on a scenic 10-seater Cessna flight, so you can soak in the dramatic coastlines and hidden coves from above. Once you land, they keep the spoiling going.

Speaking of spoiling, spa treatments in their on-site spa are pure luxury. Picture pampering yourselves with massages that use local Hawaiian botanicals and traditional techniques – like a couple’s lomi lomi massage or the pöhaku wela massage with heated lava rocks. There’s even a steam room, a cold plunge pool, and an outdoor jetted tub overlooking the bay – pure bliss!

After all that relaxation, grab a tropical drink with your hunny from The Pool Bar and unwind by the infinity pool. Let the palm trees sway and the sound of the waves lull you into complete vacation mode.

Immerse yourselves in the local culture with classes offered by the resort team members. Cultural Activities at Hāna-Maui Resort include learning to weave with coconut fronds, create beautiful feather flowers, or try your hand at Hawaiian leaf printing. In the evenings, mingle with friendly locals at the Hana Town Farmers Market, just a short stroll away. Sample fresh, local produce and experience the rich flavors of Hawaiian cuisine. For a casual meal on the go, grab a bite from one of the nearby food trucks, offering a variety of delicious options.

No Maui adventure is complete without a visit to Wai’anapanapa State Park, home to the famous black sand beach. Hike along the coast, explore ancient Hawaiian burial sites, and marvel at the dramatic sea caves. Just remember, reservations are required to enter the park, so plan ahead!

Now, if you’re planning your happily ever after, Hana-Maui Resort has that covered too. Picture saying “I do” on a bluff overlooking the ocean, by the infinity pool, or even on the famed Hamoa Beach. They have gorgeous indoor and outdoor venues for both the ceremony and the reception, so you can create a celebration that’s as unique as your love story.

Here’s the best part: whether it’s a small, intimate gathering or a grand wedding reception, Hana-Maui Resort’s experienced team will handle everything. You just focus on gazing into each other’s eyes and soaking up the Hawaiian magic.

So, ditch the ordinary and set sail (or should we say, fly?) for an unforgettable honeymoon or Hawaiian wedding, Hana-Maui Resort promises a unique experience for ka po’e apau – everyone
