Did you know that Kauai was named the most romantic island in the United States?
That’s according to a 2013 World’s Best survey by Travel + Leisure magazine. But if you’ve ever been to this island, then you’d know it doesn’t take a survey to prove Kauai’s romantic tendencies. The secluded bungalows and private beach coves will set the mood for any couple – whether they realize it or not.
In fact, Kauai has also become the most popular spot for honeymooners. From the mountain escapades to the ocean oasis, Kauai’s allurement as a romantic getaway can be found wherever couples choose to make it. But it’s usually the pristine beaches that become the ideal location for tying the knot.
Shipwrecks Beach, in particular, is an especially popular spot for beach weddings. Lined with the gentle sway of ironwood trees and stunning sea cliffs in the distance, there’s no better place to spend that special day with family and friends than on the south side of this beautiful island. The beach is also right in front of the Grand Hyatt, where a private cabana floating above koi ponds is perfect for the elaborate after party and reception.
Some hotels put together complete packages for those wishing to get married on the island. The Kauai Marriott, for instance, let’s couples choose any location on the property. The package also includes a minister, private gazebo, champagne and a deluxe bridal bouquet and boutonniere for the groom. The best part is that the couples don’t have to break a sweat. The hotel’s wedding coordinator will take care of the planning, while you two enjoy the view and all the island has to offer.
Couples celebrating wedding anniversaries or Valentine’s Day might consider coming to Kauai as well. While they may not be needing a fancy wedding, they’re sure to find a relaxing getaway – whether near the beach or near the hillside. There’s love in the air, everywhere on Kauai.
