Kauai’s Most Romantic Escapes

Kauai’s Most Romantic Escapes

With lush landscapes, pristine beaches, and enchanting sunsets, Kauai is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway. In this guide, we'll whisk you away to six of our most honeymoon or swoon-worthy places on the Garden Isle.

  1. 1.The Poipu Coastline Wall: Sunset Strolls and Romantic Picnics

Each evening, locals and visitors connect with their loved ones at the Poipu “Wall.” The three-foot tall, rock wall begins at the west end of the Sheraton Kauai Resort and continues off and on for just over a mile, ending at the Lawai Beach Resort frontage. South Shore sunsets are always spectacular, often ending with a Green Flash or the silhouette of a breaching Humpback Whale. Before claiming a spot along the rock wall, locals frequently stop at Kauai Juice Co. to pick up a healthy to-go dinner or at Leong’s Market for a container of the freshest poke to share.

2. Dinner with a View: Incredible Meals and Ambiance

Plan well ahead to secure a reservation at Kauai’s most romantic restaurants. An evening at AMA surrounded by Hanalei’s emerald cliffs, often with cascading waterfalls is a Kauai highlight. The hipster ramen menu and house cocktails are as memorable as the fairytale view. For an ocean-side dinner to remember, head to the South Shore’s, Beach House Restaurant. Perched on a beautiful point overlooking the Poipu Shoreline, this Peter Merriman concept restaurant offers his classic, upscale, surf and turf menu. Do order at least one of his signature Mai Tai’s with Lilikoi Foam. Sipping this cocktail while enjoying a sunset with your favorite person is the perfect, memory-making aphrodisiac.

3. Hanalei Bay: Serenity and Sophistication

Indulge in the laid-back luxury of Hanalei Bay, where charming beach cottages, dramatic cliff-laden backdrops, and the best sand on the island offer a perfect blend of relaxation and refinement. Spend your day lounging under an umbrella, taking a couple’s surf lesson, or slowly walking the 2-mile bay hunting for shells. If you don’t bring snacks, take a lunch break at Hanalei Gourmet or make the quick drive up to Nourish Hanalei for a meal with a breathtaking view of the valley.

4. Cooking Classes: Create Memories Cooking Together

Cooking Classes are a sure way to bring couples closer. The relaxed, jovial atmosphere creates the perfect opportunity to connect with your person. At Monkeypod Jam’s Kauai Cooking Classes, guests learn the history of each dish while creating musubi, mochi, somen salad, and poke. Even more romantic… not having to clean the mess afterward!

5. Napali Coast: Majestic Scenery by Foot, Air, or Sea

Embark on a journey to the Napali Coast, a breathtaking backdrop for romance. Whether you opt for a scenic helicopter tour with Blue Hawaiian or a sunset cruise with Captain Andy’s, you'll be mesmerized by towering sea cliffs, cascading waterfalls, and secluded beaches accessible only by sea. For those wanting to fit in a hike, the trail to Hanakapiai Beach is sure to impress. The trail hugs the north side of the Napali Coast, ending at one of the island’s most pristine beaches. Be sure to make a parking reservation well in advance with the Kauai County Parks and Rec.

6. Spa Retreats: Pampering and Relaxation

Treat yourselves to a blissful spa retreat, where you can unwind with luxurious couples' massages, rejuvenating spa treatments, and tranquil meditation sessions. Let the stresses of daily living melt away as you indulge in pure relaxation together. Our favorite place to unwind and connect is the Anara Day Spa at the Grand Hyatt Resort and Spa.

As you embark on your romantic journey through Kauai, let the island's natural beauty and serene ambiance set the stage for unforgettable moments with your loved one. Whether you're lounging on secluded beaches, learning new recipes, or indulging in luxurious spa treatments, Kauai offers the perfect backdrop for your romantic escape.
