The Best honeymoon hotels in Maui
You’ve decided to take a Maui honeymoon, and now you’re looking for the best honeymoon hotels in Maui.
Or maybe you haven’t decided if you’re going to honeymoon in Maui or somewhere else.
Either way, this blog post will help you find the best honeymoon hotels in Maui, as well as answer some of the most common Maui honeymoon questions.
Before you get started, I know that planning a Hawaii honeymoon is overwhelming! That’s where I come in, I am a Hawaii Travel Agent specializing in honeymoons! If you need some help with your Maui honeymoon, contact me to learn more.
All of the resorts on this list of honeymoon hotels in Maui are amazing, but you won’t want to stay at the resort all day, every day. You’ll definitely need a rental car; I recommend Discount Hawaii Car Rental for the best deals.
Use the money you save on your rental car for some poolside drinks or spa treatments. 🙂
Which Hawaii island is best for a honeymoon?
I have an entire blog post about which Hawaii island is best for honeymoons, so make sure to check it out for the “long answer.”
The short answer is that Maui is often named one of the best places in the world for honeymoons. So you can see why it’s an obvious choice for honeymooners.
Why is Maui the best island for a honeymoon?
Maui has the best beaches in Hawaii, some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii, and some of the world’s best hotels and resorts!
Maui also has a mix of human-made activities and outdoor activities. It’s a great option for those who want somewhere less crowded than Oahu but with more options than Kauai or the Big Island.
Where to stay in Maui?
Is the west side of Maui best for honeymoons? Is the south side of Maui best for honeymoons? Well, let’s just say there isn’t a bad part of Maui for honeymoons.
South Maui feels a little more central, but all in all, Maui isn’t a huge island, and everything is accessible from either the south or west side.
While some of my favorite honeymoon resorts are in Wailea, I also love Maui’s west side during the winter. Who wouldn’t want to see whales from your own lanai on your honeymoon?!
Many of the resorts on the west side of Maui are located on Kaanapali Beach, with fantastic views of Molokai and Lanai, incredible snorkeling at black rock, and whale sightings in the winter.
Does Maui have adults-only resorts?
Maui has one adults-only resort, and don’t worry; it made this list of the best honeymoon hotels in Hawaii.
Although most Maui resorts are family-friendly, you’ll be less likely to find kids around during the school year. Many of the resorts on this list also have adults-only areas or pools. I have noted which resorts do and do not have adults-only pools or areas.
The best way to ensure a quieter honeymoon is to vacation closer to the start or the end of the school year. April-May and September-October are slower months for family vacations. Fortunately, these are also very popular months for weddings!

Does Maui have all-inclusive resorts?
There is a lot of information about this, but Hawaii has no all-inclusive resorts. If you see anyone offering “all-inclusive” packages, I can assure you that they have inflated the price.
Some resorts and hotels offer breakfast and sometimes even other meal packages. However, you won’t find any true all-inclusive resorts that are all you can eat and drink. For that, you’ll need to head to the Caribbean.
Hotel Wailea – the only adults-only resort in Maui
Hotel Wailea is the only truly adults-only resort in Hawaii. It is also the only Relais & Châteaux property in the state of Hawaii.
The garden-like grounds of the resort are stunning, and the entire resort has a very relaxing atmosphere.
If you’re looking for a beachfront Maui resort, the Hotel Wailea may not be for you. The Hotel Wailea is not directly located on the beach, but it’s just a short trip down the hill to Wailea Beach.
Hotel Wailea offers a shuttle service directly to the beach, although it’s an easy walk if you choose to do that. The hotel is all-suites and has won many awards.
Conde Nast Traveler named the Hotel Wailea one of the most romantic resorts in the world, and I’d have to agree.
Rates begin at around $800 per night, and you can check rates during your stay here.
Andaz Maui at Wailea
The Andaz Maui at Wailea is one of the most eco-friendly hotels on Maui. Hawaii’s first LEED-certified, The Andaz Maui Resort, uses recycled materials and composts food waste, among many other things.
Although the Andaz is not adults-only, it does have an adults-only pool, which is great for honeymoon couples. You can also enjoy four incredible on-site restaurants and enjoy some wine on your private lanai.
While you’ll see some families at this resort, it’s not quite as family-friendly as some nearby resorts (such as the Grand Wailea.) I think it’s one of the best honeymoon hotels in Maui if you’re looking for a quiet and relaxing resort.
Rates for the Andaz Maui at Wailea begin at around $800 per night. Check pricing for your dates on Expedia for the best rates.
One of my favorite Maui luaus – The Feast at Mokapu – is also located at the Andaz.
Maui has so many great luau options; I have a blog post about the best luaus in Maui.
Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa
The Hyatt Regency Maui resort and spa is located at the end of Ka’anapali Beach. Amenities include oceanfront golfing and a traditional luau, The Drums of the Pacific.
As of the last time I checked, the Hyatt Regency Maui does not offer an adults-only pool area, although they have in the past. Although this is a fantastic resort, I would look elsewhere if you plan a summer honeymoon.
Rates for the Hyatt Regency Maui start at just over $500 per night.
Montage Kapalua Bay
The Montage Kapalua Bay is a 5-star resort located on the West side of Maui on 24 oceanfront acres.
The premier all-suites resort offers plenty of space and housekeeping twice a day (yes, twice!) Although you can cook in your suite, the resort provides the excellent restaurants you would expect from a 5-star resort.
You can also enjoy some golf on two nearby golf courses and swim or snorkel in the ocean just a few steps from your room.
The two nearby golf courses are:
- Kapalua Club – The Plantation Course
- Kapalua Club – The Bay Course
As with most of the resorts on this list, the Montage Kapalua Bay is not adults-only but does feature an adults-only pool.
Montage Kapalua Bay rates begin at around $1500 per night. Check the rates for your dates here.
The Hana-Maui Resort (Formerly the Travaasa Maui) is the closest you can get to an all-inclusive resort in Hawaii.
The Hana-Maui Resort offers dining plans, which include breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This resort is very different from anything else on this list.
Located in Hana (your final destination on the Road to Hana), this is a very remote resort and best for those who want to get away from it all. Don’t forget to also check out the ultimate guide to the Road to Hana.
Rates at the Hana-Maui Resort without meals begin around $600 and go up from there with meal options.
If you want a mixture of relaxation and adventure, I recommend staying at the Hana-Maui Resort for a few days and then switching to somewhere more central like The Andaz.
Four Seasons Maui
No list of best resorts would be complete without mentioning the Four Seasons. The 5-star The Four Seasons Maui Resort at Wailea is no exception.
Located in Wailea, close to many other high-end resorts, the Four Seasons has an incredible view of Lanai and the West Maui mountains.
It’s important to remember that just because you choose an expensive hotel does not mean that children will not be present. The Four Seasons has one of the best children’s programs and is very popular for families.
Of course, the Four Seasons Maui offers an adults-only serenity pool with a swim-up bar and some of Maui’s most epic pool views.
Rates at the Four Seasons Maui begin at around $1200 per night.
Located in West Maui, the Ritz-Carton Kapalua is perfect for golfers and those who want the best of the best in a 5-star luxury resort.
The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua is more isolated than many resorts, making it perfect for those who want a quieter getaway.
While the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua is beachfront, the hiking and trails are also incredible. It’s also the closest resort to the West Maui Loop, which I mention in my 50 things to do in Maui post.
Rates at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua begin at just over $700 per night.
If you’re dreaming of an amazing Maui honeymoon but find resorts like the Four Seasons or Montage Kapalua Bay are out of budget, the next few resorts might work better for you.
Please keep in mind that resorts such as the Westin Maui, Sheraton Maui, and Westin Kaanapali are mid-range resorts and will still start around $400/night. Hawaii is quite expensive, and the average resort is over $300. You can learn more about how much a trip to Hawaii costs here.
The Westin Maui Resort and Spa is located on Kaanapali Beach on 12-acres of tropical paradise.
Rates for the Westin Maui start around $700 per night.
The Sheraton Maui Resort and Spa is also located on Ka’anapali Beach, right in front of Black Rock. If you love snorkeling, this may be the resort for you!
Black Rock is one of the best places to snorkel in Hawaii, and it’s just outside of your resort! I also recommend a snorkeling tour of Molokini Crater for anyone who loves the ocean.
I have noticed that the Sheraton Maui reviews have gone down since 2020, so you may want to check out the latest reviews before booking your trip.
In the past, I’ve had many happy clients at the Sheraton, but I recommend doing your research. Rates at the Sheraton Maui start around $600 per night.
Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas
Yes, there is another Westin property on this list of the best honeymoon hotels in Maui! There are actually three Westin resorts in Maui, and all of them are worth mentioning.
The Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas offer one or two-bedroom suites, which are perfect for those who need more room and prefer to cook some of their own meals.
Due to the size of the villas, the Westin Kaanapali is popular with families but does offer an adults-only pool that is tucked away from the busy parts of the resort.
Rates at the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas start around $650 per night. Check the pricing for your honeymoon here.
Please note that although some of the villas are timeshares, you can also book a “regular” stay here too!
Bonus Maui honeymoon resort
If you’re wondering, the other Westin property is the Westin Nanea Ocean Villas. It could have easily made this list, but the 10 best honeymoon hotels in Maui sounded better than 11. 😉
The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas are also all-villa accommodations and located directly on Kaanapali Beach.
