Wailea’s beautiful beaches, clean sun-filled days, and warm hospitality make it a mecca for couples. Whether you’re planning a honeymoon or a romantic getaway with the one you love, keep these tips in mind to put the sizzle in your Wailea vacation.
Don’t Skimp on Accommodation
Your hotel is your home base while you’re away, so it’s smart not to skimp. Hostels and motor inns might have worked when you were a swinging single, but they won’t score any brownie points with the one you love. Look for Wailea hotels with water views and restaurants and spas on site. That way you won’t need to leave the hotel unless you really want to.
Sip cocktails at the swim-up bar or indulge in an aromatic bath at the Grand Wailea – A Waldorf Astoria Resort. Take in ocean views during a dip in Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea’s infinity pool. Or enjoy some couples time at the adults “quiet” pool at The Fairmont Kea Lani Maui.
Check Out a Comedy Club
If you must venture out, a night at a comedy club is a great option. Studies show that sharing a joke with your mate can spark romance, so it makes sense to enjoy an evening of laughs. Wailea is lacking in nightlife, but there are several clubs in Kihei, less than 15 minutes away. Try Power Up Comedy or the comedy nights at Ambrosia Martini Lounge.
Indulge in Room Service
Room service always feels like the ultimate indulgence. The Huffington Post says it’s one of the best ways to add romance to your honeymoon, but it could certainly add some spice to any couples getaway. Who doesn’t love digging into some great grub while you’re tucked up in bed or lazing about in those fancy hotel robes? And if you’ve heeded the first advice and booked an upmarket Wailea hotel, the dishes you order will amaze. Most of us rarely order room service, but a romantic getaway is the perfect opportunity to pamper yourself.
Travel in the Shoulder Seasons
Most travelers head to Wailea during summer or winter, but it’s much more romantic during spring and fall. Without the crowds to contend with, you’ll have more space to spread out on the beach and enjoy lower tariffs. Wailea’s temperature doesn’t experience dramatic fluctuations either, so you won’t be disappointed with the weather no matter when you go. To maximize the romance, book your Wailea Hotel from April to May or September to November.
Make Time to Watch the Sunset
Most couples are so busy dealing with their professional lives and domestic duties that they forget to take time out for themselves. A vacation to Wailea is the ideal opportunity to slow down and make time for simple pleasures, like watching the sunset.
Take a short drive to the summit of Haleakala for a birds-eye view, or watch the colors dance over the water while you sample fresh Island cuisine at Humuhumunukunukuapua’a Restaurant inside the Grand Wailea Resort.
