An island of sweet surprises: Maui for honeymooners

A Hawaiian honeymoon has all the storybook ingredients to make couples swoon: sherbet-coloured sunsets, songbird serenades and palm-tree hammocks shimmying in the trade winds. But the island of Maui has more than a few surprises up its aloha-shirted sleeve, with something unique to offer every type of couple, be you food lovers, thrill-seekers or traditional lovebugs.

Maui for decadent foodies

First there are all the local aphrodisiacs: you’ll want to try oyster shooters at the Honokowai Fish Market near Kaʻanapali, dragon fruit plucked straight from the lush forests off the fabled Hana Highway or a dark chocolate bar provocatively scented with Aliʻi Kula lavender grown on the cool slopes of Haleakalā.

Take your Maui foodie experience upcountry to the island’s own winery at Ulupalakua Ranch, where you can sip on sweet vintages made from Maui-grown grapes and pineapples. There, you can toast to the island and your commitment to each other amid blooming jacaranda trees and sweeping views.

After that, any foodie couple worth their lava salt will definitely want to try the island’s uniquely sweet onions, a direct result of Maui’s rich-red volcanic soil. After all, nothing says ’I love you’ more than still wanting to kiss your main squeeze even after you both have onion breath, right? So pile as many as you can on top of a Ulupalakua beef burger with a side of Maui potato chips (we’re talking the real deal, not the ’Maui-style’ imitations you see in your hometown grocery store). Finish your meal with a kiss and a Mauicello (think limoncello, but made with Maui-grown lemons and local sugar), and you’ll have an only-in-Maui foodie experience fit for the lovebird gods.

Followers of the US show Top Chef should also seek out ahi belly, pork buns and kim chee ramen at Star Noodle, the creation of this past season’s runner-up, Chef Sheldon Simeon. He infuses his dishes with island flavours while utilising local ingredients such as Hana fiddlehead ferns and Waipoli mixed greens, making Star Noodle one of the hottest food spots around.

Maui for free-spirited adventurers

Your time in Maui can easily be tailored for maximum heart-fluttering thrills. Take Haleakalā, for example. Pair up with a local tour operator, such as Haleakalā Bike Company, to embark on one of the planet’s longest all-downhill bike tours. You’ll start at the top before sunrise amid a lunar-like landscape and – as day dawns spectacularly over the entire Hawaiian island chain – you’ll go through several eco-systems while coasting down steep volcanic slopes. As you and your honey pedal side-by-side, be on the lookout for the otherworldly Haleakalā silversword plant, along with the nene bird – the rarest goose in the world.

Any Hawaii experts?

by planning_honeymoon

Planning my honeymoon for June 2004 and wanting to go to the Big Island, Maui and Kauai. Looking for the best hotels overall at each location and willing to spend top $$$ for it. Since it's a honeymoon, would prefer places that are non-family oriented, and we definitely don't need to be in the middle of 'it all'.
I.E. - On Maui, would you suggest Ritz or Four Seasons?
Thanks for any thoughts, and Happy New Year!
