The Best Spots for the Ultimate Hawaii Babymoon in 2024

Planning a babymoon in Hawaii? You are in for a treat! We visited Hawaii for our babymoon and loved every minute of our vacation! And having visited almost all of the islands by now, I’m excited to break down what I believe are the best spots for the ultimate babymoon in Hawaii!

I’ll go island by island, detailing where you should stay and the best things to do! And because pregnancy can be hard and looks different for everyone, no matter if they’re in their first trimester or third trimester, I’ve kept my recommendations to low-risk and easy suggestions. No long, strenuous hikes included for this babymoon destination!


Oahu is the most metropolitan among all the Hawaiian Islands, with Honolulu primed for city life. In Honolulu, alongside upscale resorts are rich historical sites such as Iolani Palace and the Pearl Harbor National Memorial. You’ll also find Hanauma Bay and popular (read: touristy) Waikiki Beach. 

But if you want to get a nature-filled Hawaiian experience or are simply looking for a relaxing Hawaii babymoon, I recommend staying outside of Honolulu. 

And, of course, you can easily blend city and nature on Oahu; this island is a sampler plate of all that Hawaii offers – dining, shopping, history, and outdoor activities.

Where to Stay on Your Oahu Babymoon

Luxury: Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina 

The Four Seasons on Oahu brings your Hawaii babymoon up a whole level. Thoughtful amenities are Four Seasons Ko Olina’s signature, though its sunny west coast location comes close. From elegant rooms with wraparound-ocean views to even your own choice of mattress topper, your stay is about comfort. If you’re looking for a primarily resort-style babymoon in Hawaii, this hotel is for you. You can enjoy a varied itinerary via the on-site pools, golf courses, natural lagoons, and a helpful activities desk.

Luxury: The Kahala Hotel and Resort 

Old Hawaii grandeur characterizes The Kahala Hotel and Resort, which has hosted the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Spacious rooms look out toward either ocean or jungle, with 4 restaurants and full-service spa services just steps away, and enhancements like a customized mini-bar and champagne & strawberries that can be ordered 24 hours in advance. Though there are no private beaches in Hawaii, you’ll get to experience the next-best thing on its beach out front, a half-mile long stretch that is typically frequented just by its guests. 

Luxury: Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach 

If you do opt to stay in Waikiki, this spot is a Honolulu favorite. Alohilani Resort is just 60 steps from Waikiki Beach. The massive lobby aquarium is the first to wow you, followed by luxurious but understated rooms. Admire the Pacific Ocean and Diamond Head from private seating areas, or shell out for deep-soaking tubs and private lanais.

Mid-range: Paradise Bay Resort

Though this is a mid-range hotel, waking up at the Paradise Bay Resort made us feel like we were in paradise. It’s perfect for a babymoon in Hawaii! Facing Kane’ohe Bay and framed by the Koolau Mountains, Paradise Bay Resort has been my favorite Oahu stay, even though it’s not a luxury hotel. From self-catering cottages to chartered boat excursions, this getaway is activity-based (though we actually didn’t get to partake in any activities due to closures with the pandemic). In normal times, snorkeling and kayaking equipment come included, as do complimentary yoga and meditation classes. It’s a truly unique accommodation with fantastic service and cultural experiences. My favorite part: waking up and opening our balcony doors to our huge patio. Immediately the floral scents of Hawaii flood in, as do the sounds of nature! Simply exquisite!

Budget: Aqua Palms Waikiki

If you’re really on a budget, that might mean you rely on public transportation instead of renting a car. That’s how we spent our honeymoon in Waikiki. As a result, we chose Aqua Palms Waikiki for budget access in a prime location near a ton of shops and restaurants. It’s a short walk to Waikiki beach and it’s located on Ala Moana Boulevard. If you know Oahu well, you’ll know that means there is no shortage of restaurants and attractions here. Hawaii Convention Center, Ala Moana Park, and Diamond Head are close by. You can also enjoy discounted admissions to Bishop Museum and the Honolulu Museum of Art. This lodging is best if you’re on a budget and looking primarily for cultural and city explorations, close to plenty of restaurants.

Best Things to Do on Your Oahu Babymoon

Though Oahu has pretty decent public transportation, I recommend having a rental car so you can see as much of Oahu as possible.

Relax at the Beach: We love Lanakai Beach

Waikiki may be Oahu’s most famous beach, but our favorite is no doubt Lanakai Beach. An excellent swimming spot along the windward coast, its coral reef patches also make for great snorkeling! You also have a great view of The Mokes and can actually kayak out to them.

Drive to Tantalus Lookout

An easy drive takes you to Tantalus Lookout, one of Oahu’s best sunset viewing spots. The grassy knoll roves over Southern Oahu, and you can admire the expanse between Diamond Head and Pearl Harbor.

Hours: 7:00 AM to 6:45 PM

Do a Tour at Kualoa Ranch

From weddings to filming Jurassic Park, Kualoa Ranch is 4,000 acres of gorgeous landscape. Tour this working cattle ranch and nature preserve to see the coolest jungle-scape and film sets. One of the coolest souvenirs to bring home is Jurassic Park-inspired photos! Join Kualoa Ranch’s Jurassic Adventure Tour for authentic set photos (dinosaurs included), or pose under the looming ridges of the mountains.

Hours: Monday – Sunday 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM

Price: Starting at $56 for adults

Eat at a North Shore Food Truck

North Shore Food Trucks bring some of Oahu’s best fish tacos, burritos, and Baja Mexican bites. Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck, Haleiwa Bowls, Mike’s Huli Chicken, and Surf N’ Salsa are some favorites! 

Snorkel Hanauma Bay

If 3 million annual visitors don’t convince you that Hanauma Bay is the place to snorkel, what would? Crystalline waters and vibrant reefs make it the best snorkeling experience in Oahu.

Hours: 6:45 AM to 4:00 PM

Price: $25 (entry fee)

Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden

Driving, strolling, hiking – don’t miss out on the picturesque lake and walking trails within the 400-acre plot. The uniquely grooved Koolau Mountain Range towers above it. 

Hours: 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Admission: Free

Byodo-in Temple

Built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Hawaii’s first Japanese immigrants, Byodo-in Temple is a small-scale replica of the one in Japan. The temple grounds are beautifully landscaped, offering a meditative space for everyone.

Hours: 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM Daily

Price: $5 for ages 13-64, $4 for seniors, $2 for children ages 2-12 (entry fee)

Bonus: Take Jurassic Park-esque Photos at Kualoa Regional Park

Here’s a free way to take some epic photos without signing up for a tour at Kualoa Ranch. Right next door to Kualoa Ranch, you’ll find Kualoa Regional Park. Here you can take all the Hawaii babymoon photos your heart could desire- and all with the most epic Jurassic Park-esque backdrop! And if you’re looking for more great photo spots in Oahu, I’ve listed my top 50 favorites here!

Hours: 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM

For a full list of my favorite things to do in Oahu, check out this post!


couple on a scenic road in kauai

Sometimes one of the smallest is also the most beautiful – relatively undeveloped Kauai is brimming with verdant life. Aptly titled the “Garden Isle”, Kauai’s unspoiled landscapes promise solitude and slow living. Besides several large resorts, tourists have much less of a claim here than Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island. Outdoor experiences dominate your days; the mountainous terrain offers up canyons, waterfalls, and a lovely trek along Napali Coast.

Where to Stay on Your Kauai Babymoon

Relaxing poolside at Timbers Kauai.

Luxury: Timbers Kauai

Located in Lihue, this top-of-the-line resort offers everything you could want for a luxurious babymoon in Kauai. From its infinity pools and farm-to-table restaurant, Hualani’s, to dramatic cliff views and access to top-notch golfing, Timbers Kauai has it all! We absolutely loved dining at Hualani’s (the Hanalei Bay cocktail, virgin-style mocktail, is a must!) and seeing the grounds of their on-site agriculture area! They grow their own produce on-site… it’s farm-to-table at its best! (Fun fact: situated right on the edge of the ocean, this property is the only one of its kind in Kauai! No one else is allowed to build as close to the ocean!)

Luxury: Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa

Grand Hyatt Kauai’s green roofs blend almost seamlessly into its tropical gardens; its river pools threaded between coconut trees. The 24-hour pool complex (waterslides included) features alongside championship-grade golf course and horse stables. Upscale seafood restaurants and traditional Polynesian productions mark the bulk of evening entertainment. 

Luxury: Koloa Landing Resort at Po’ipu, Autograph Collection

Offering studio rooms and 2-bedroom suites, Koloa Landing Resort is designed for maximum views of the ocean. Floor-to-ceiling windows are complemented by torch-lit walkways for ambiance; valet parking and proximity to Poipu Shopping Village signal convenience. Stroll among the landscaped ponds or lounge by the pools.

Luxury: Royal Sonesta Kauai Resort Lihue

From balcony rooms to a full-service business center, Royal Sonesta Kauai anticipates your needs. Right by Kalapaki Bay and 18-hole Kauai Lagoons Golf Club, the hotel offers 5 restaurants to complete your getaway package. The waterfront restaurant is particularly well-loved by couples.

Mid-range: Kauai Coast Resort at the Beachboy

This is where we stayed for our Hawaii babymoon and it was a great, well-priced spot for our budget. When we travel, we prefer to spend money on experiences, activities, and ALL the tasty food we could want! So after checking reviews and pricing, we landed on the Kauai Coast Resort! Pros: we loved how spacious our king room was- it had a kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom. The property is well kept and beautiful! The on-site restaurant, Hukilau Lanai, served up the freshest, most delicious farm-to-table style food. It’s also conveniently located in Kapa’a, which means you can reach the north side and southwest side of the island in the same amount of time. The only con was that our room smelled a little musty from the moment we walked in.

Mid-range: Aston Islander On The Beach

The shores of Coconut Coast are just steps away from Aston Islander, but its oceanfront pool and hot tub keeps you sand-free. Many love the teak-furnished rooms and private balconies, while barbecue facilities keep the night lively. Bask in peace and quiet without being too far from the restaurant area. 

Budget: Kauai Shores Hotel

A love 6-acre tropical courtyard hugs Kauai Shores Hotel, which sits in the heart of Kapaa for easy commute. All island-styled rooms offer private balconies and sweet views over the pool, while Lava Lava Beach Club serves full-day dining. An on-site launderette keeps your clothes fresh and comfy. 

Best Things to Do on a Kauai Babymoon

Helicopter Tour of the Na Pali Coast

Dramatic Na Pali Coast is famous for plunging sea cliffs, cascading waterfalls and narrow valleys. Take in these emerald-hued cliffs from above! We did the Jurassic Falls Landing Adventure with Island Helicopters and I couldn’t recommend it enough! If you’re going to splurge on one thing on your babymoon in Hawaii, let this be it. Especially because pregnant women aren’t allowed on boat tours of the Na Pali Coast! This helicopter tour brings you all over the island, including over the epic Na Pali Coast.

Waimea Canyon State Park

Known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, this state park features a 3,000-feet deep drop. Drive through the park gazing at its reddish contours and stop at Waimea Canyon Lookout for sweeping views.

Price: $5 (entry fee), includes access to Kokee State Park too.

Kokee State Park

pu'u o'kila lookout

Once you’ve made it to the Waimea Canyon Lookout, keep on driving! Follow the highway into Kokee State Park, all the way to the end for the dramatic valley and mountain views at Pu’u O Kila lookout. Just a short walk brings you to this view, which makes it very pregnancy-friendly for your Hawaii babymoon!

Relax at Hanalei Bay

The sheltered nature of Hanalei Bay makes it the perfect resting spot for sailboats and for paddleboarding enthusiasts. Lounge on two miles of beach, backed by mountains and stunning beauty!

Visit Wailua Falls

The way Wailua Falls tips into the pool below is riveting. Set within a tropical forest, this “Fantasy Island” featured waterfall is known for its rainbows and twin spouts. While hiking down is technically illegal, it can be done! If you’re brave and are wearing sturdy shoes, a short but steep hike brings you to the cool pool at the foot of the falls!

Queen’s Bath

One epic 30-minute hike later and you’ll reach Queen’s Bath, a unique tide pool with epic views! This was our favorite natural feature we visited on Kauai! But use caution before going- you should only do this trek if the waves are under 4 feet in the area! Wear wet shoes with traction for an easier time (we didn’t and honestly, it was fine, but would’ve been more convenient with water shoes); only dip into the “bath” if the surrounding ocean water is calm. 


Maui is absolutely perfect for a Hawaii babymoon! Hitting the sweet spot where natural attractions and kitschy townships are equally plentiful, Maui’s a popular choice for Hawaii first-timers. From sunrise climbs and farmers markets to a traditional luau and botanical gardens – this island is teeming with beauty and culture. 

If you’re not familiar with this island, here are three key things that it’s famous for:

For one, it is less touristy than Oahu and has plenty of resorts, nature, restaurants, and activities. Secondly, Maui is home to the famous Road to Hana, the 64-mile drive showing off just a portion of its gorgeous eastern coast. And for the third: Haleakala National Park, one of two national parks in all of Hawaii, is on Maui (the other is on the Big Island). It offers the dreamiest views above the clouds and, to me, it is a must on any Maui babymoon itinerary!

Where to Stay on Your Maui Babymoon

Pool views from the Ritz-Carlton Maui.

Luxury: Ritz-Carlton Maui, Kapalua

We’ve never felt more pampered than at the Ritz-Carlton Maui. 54 stunning acres comprised of ocean-view rooms, an epic golf course, a full-service spa, and all the recreational activities you could want. Spend the day out whale watching and hiking along Kapalua Bay before returning for a traditional Hawaiian massage. Savor everything you order at The Banyan Tree- truly some of the best hotel restaurant food I’ve ever had. Their rolls are a must! The only catch is that the Ritz-Carlton is located on the western coast, which means it takes a lot longer to get to my favorite Maui attractions. For that reason, I’d only choose the Ritz-Carlton if you plan to spend the majority of your Hawaii babymoon at the resort.

Luxury: Andaz Maui at Wailea

Have you ever enjoyed four cascading outdoor infinity pools? We have at my favorite resort on Maui! Andaz Maui’s luxurious property offers 15 acres of beach and every room decked out with a private balcony for maximum ocean views (with curtains that open at the touch of a button)! Hop between the spa, Mokapu beach, the onsite luau, and some of the island’s best restaurants. Ka’ana Kitchen is a treat!

Luxury: Hotel Wailea

Adults-only Hotel Wailea is a couple’s dream getaway! Nestled on a cliff, the 15-acred property spoils you with private decks and plush bathrobes. Intimately-styled restaurants set the mood, like The Garden’s al fresco dining in sculpted gardens. Or, celebrate privately in The Treehouse via a personal chef and lush canopy.

Luxury: Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort

The Grand Wailea is Harrison’s favorite luxury resort on Maui. You’re probably going to laugh when I say why… it’s because they have epic water slides (that are not just for kids)! That, and because they have his favorite breakfast spread on the island. I loved it for its romantic grounds and the on-site water sport rentals. We rented aqua gliders, which basically are elliptical machines that you pedal on water. If you’ve got the energy for it, it makes for a fun way to get out on the ocean- but I’d recommend going in the early morning when the water is calmer. You can read more about the best luxury resorts on Maui here!

Mid-range: Hyatt Regency Maui

Located in the Lahaina area, the Hyatt Regency Maui embodies the Hawaiian dream without breaking your bank too badly – think pools, beach, luau, and range of eateries. Ka’anapali Beach is stunning, but so are the grounds here! We were blown away by the grotto bar set within waterfalls. The rooftop astronomy program highlights how beautiful Maui’s night skies are. And did I mention that there are penguins in the lobby??

Mid-range: Paia Inn

Within walking distance of shops and restaurants, Paia Inn’s North Shore location is vibrant and lively. Outdoor activities are a must, whether you’re taking advantage of the 4.8-kilometer beach or zip-lining through forests. We haven’t tried out the rooms yet, but the onsite VANA Sushi Bar is amazing! This award-winning ‘Best New Restaurant’ is a thumbs-up from us. (But keep in mind you’ll have limited choices while pregnant if you dine at VANA!)

Budget: Kaanapali Ocean Inn

If you’re saving up for the ‘doing’ versus the ‘staying’, Kaanapali Ocean Inn offers budget prices and access to numerous activities. Morning boardwalk strolls, exploring Lahina town and window shopping at Whalers Village satisfy laidback travelers, while adventurous spirits can snorkel and surf along Kaanapali Beach. 

Best Things to Do on Your Maui Babymoon

Drive to the top of Haleakala

Definitely add this to your Hawaii babymoon if you choose to visit Maui! Haleakala National Park offers one of the coolest experiences in Maui. Sitting among the clouds is Haleakala Observatory, offering breathtaking views from this shield volcano. Drive up to the summit to watch the sunrise or sunset – it’s a Maui must-do! But note that you’ll need a reservation if you plan to go at sunrise.

Price: $30 per vehicle, 3-day permit

Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm

This lavender farm is one of the most relaxing places on Maui, filled with over 55,000 plants! The gift shop sells a range of scented products. Don’t forget to grab a lavender scone and some lavender lemonade while you’re here!

Hours: 10AM to 4PM

Price: Starts at $3

Drive the Road to Hana

The 64-mile long drive is peppered with attractions, ranging from black sand beaches to lava tubes. We suggest dedicating a full day (or more) exploring this area – and grab some roadside banana bread to satisfy those pregnancy cravings (yum… wish I had some now! I’m writing this at 27 weeks pregnant and could really go for some warm, fresh-baked banana bread)!

Do a Snorkel Tour to Molokini

The crescent-shaped isle is Maui’s only island marine sanctuary, famous for its abundant corals and resting seabirds. Its calm waters are perfect for snorkeling.  

Relax at the Beach: We love Makena Beach

Pregnancy got you feeling sleepy? Bask under the sun and let the waves lull you to sleep. Maui’s beaches range from fine, white sand to black, grainy stretches. Over 3,000 feet long, Makena Beach is our favorite, ideal for swimming and picnicking. 

Hours: 5:00 AM to 7:00 PM

Price: $5 (entry fee)

Swim at Wailea Beach

Named “America’s Best Beach” in 1999, Wailea Beach is definitely a great place to go to with its wide waters and perfect sand all around.  There are also a couple of nearby hotels like the Grand Wailea Resort Hotel & Spa as well as the Four Seasons Resort Maui. 

Visit Iao Valley State Park

Every Hawaii babymoon needs some epic Jurassic Park-esque views! The lush canopies of Iao Valley State Park surround its main attraction – the 1,200-feet tall Iao Needle. You can swim in the river here, so bring your bathing suit and a towel! (Bonus if you have water shoes- that’ll make getting in and out easier.) For more great views and photo spots in Maui, check out this post!

Note: Iao Valley State Park is reopening this May 1 2023. Make reservations here before you visit!

Hours: 7:00 AM – 6:00 PM

Eat at Mama’s Fish House

Reserve a seat in advance at Mama’s Fish House! Their seafood menu is extremely popular among locals – for good reason. But make sure you make a reservation ahead of time- and I mean WAY ahead of time. However, if they’re booked up, you can do what we did and go at lunch right when they open. You’ll *hopefully* be able to get a spot in the bar area. It’s worth it!

Hours: 11:00 AM to 8:45 PM

Old Lahaina Luau

Immerse in Hawaiian traditions with Maui’s popular Old Lahaina Luau! Kalua pig roasts, traditional dances, and twirling torches present an eye-opening dinner and cultural show combination. 

Hours: schedule varies depending on the season

Price: $229.17 (for adults), $139.58 (for children)

For a full list of my favorite things to do in Maui, check out this post!

The Big Island of Hawaii

Kulaniapia Falls waterfall view
The view of Kulaniapia Falls from the main lodge of our bed & breakfast.

Taking up 63% of the Hawaiian archipelago’s total landmass, the Big Island is as vast as it sounds! Between eleven climate zones, two mountains and an active volcano lay infinite spaces to explore. Outdoor enthusiasts praise its varied landscapes, as you can be lounging on green sand beaches one minute and trapping through the jungle the next. 

Where to Stay on Your Big Island Babymoon

four seasons room service
Room service at the Four Seasons Hualalai is always a luxury!

Luxury: Four Seasons Hualalai

If the glimmering Kona-Kohala coast is all you want for your babymoon in Hawaii, Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is the perfect choice. Our stay there was luxurious, featuring a modern room and views over the pool. Bounce between swimming areas and the golf course, then end the day with Mediterranean cuisine. Gorgeous beaches with calm waters line the property. Tip: ask about their babymoon services, particularly if you’d want to have prenatal massages!

Luxury: Westin Hapuna Beach Resort

Deep wooden accents and airy rooms made the Westin Hapuna Beach such a beautiful stay! We loved the private lanai and oceanfront location. Popular activities included snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, and traditional spa therapies. Enjoy their complimentary dining shuttle to sister property Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, where dinner is served with more ocean vistas. 

Luxury: Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows

On the Kohala Coast is the private paradise of Mauna Lani – this oceanfront resort encompasses shallow beach strips, 2 golf courses, sport facilities, and farm-to-table dining. A series of beach cabanas, pools, and private terraces ensure a stress-free stay. Cultural activities such as hula dancing and lei making are also offered.

Mid-range: Inn at Kulaniapia Falls

Immerse in Hawaii’s greener side! Hidden away in a lush estate is The Inn at Kulaniapia Falls. We stumbled across this forested getaway when searching for Hawaii’s prettiest waterfalls. Apart from swimming in the gorgeous Kulaniapia Falls, you can experience kayaking, hiking, strolling bamboo gardens, and more activities nearby. 

Budget: Hilo Bay Oceanfront Bed and Breakfast

Cozy and right on the water, the Hilo Bay Oceanfront B&B is a charming stay on the Big Island. The friendly owners direct you toward nearby attractions such as Akaka Falls, Liliuokalani Park, and Gardens, Coconut Island, Panaewa Rainforest Zoo… the list goes on. Breakfast comes included, as do free shuttle service. 

Best Things to Do on Your Big Island Babymoon

Visit Volcanoes National Park

Visit two active volcanoes if you dare! (Don’t worry, this is a perfectly safe activity as there will be alerts and closures as needed.) Volcanoes National Park is a great place to visit, regardless of whether or not there is an actively erupting volcano! The Crater Rim Drive weaves through steam vents and great viewpoints. The Jaggar Museum, Thurston Lava Tube, and hiking trails are accessible year-round too.

Price: $30 per vehicle; 7-day pass

Night Snorkel with Manta Rays

Glowing under moonlight, just offshore Keauhou, is the home ground of manta rays. Imagine spotting 30 of these winged-creatures swooping below you! Manta Village guarantees a spotting. (If you’re babymooning while still in the nausea stage of things, this might not be the best activity.) We joined Manta Ray Dives of Hawaii (also known as Kona Diving EcoAdventures) and had a blast!

Hours & price: depends on tour.

Drive to Waipio or Pololu Valley Overlooks

Take in Big Island’s massive size with a drive up to Waipio and Polulu Valley Overlooks. The former is nestled within a bigger valley, while the latter hangs over a black sand beach. Both offer stunning panoramas! 

Relax at the Beach: We love Hapuna Beach State Park

Every Hawaii babymoon needs some quality beach time! From green sand and black sand to family-friendly spots and rugged beaches, Big Island beaches are rather varied. For the best swimming and snorkeling, stop by Hapuna Beach State Park. It’s our favorite!  

Hours: 7:00 AM to 6:45 PM

Price: $5 (entry fee)

Akaka Falls State Park

Two gorgeous waterfalls are found at Akaka Falls State Park. Enjoy the short hike along Hilo Coast – the greenery is stunning. I’ve listed more of my favorite Big Island photo spots on this post!

Hours: 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Price: $5 (entry fee)

Check out more things to do on the Big Island here!

Lanai City

Unfortunately, I haven’t visited Lanai City yet! It’s on my bucket list though! I’ve compiled the information below based on friends who have visited and based on my own research! Here’s what I would do on a babymoon in Lanai.

Often overlooked, quiet Lanai makes for an extremely private getaway. While you can adventure across rugged back roads, Hawaii’s smallest inhabited island is mostly known for its luxury resorts and golf courses. If you’re looking for the most relaxing Hawaii babymoon, this island is a great choice! Honestly, there isn’t that much else to do but to relax! Though I haven’t been to Lanai yet, I’ve compiled the things I’d incorporate into a dreamy Hawaiian babymoon in Lanai. 

Where to Stay on Your Lanai Babymoon

Luxury: Four Seasons Lanai 

The ultimate luxury resort on Lanai, Four Seasons Lanai exudes class with its soothing décor and lush gardens. It is the perfect Hawaii babymoon resort if you’re looking for pure relaxation! Hulopo’e Bay spreads beyond the windows of the onsite restaurants, treating you to Pacific Ocean views alongside delicious seafood. Its services extend further than your suite and generous facilities; starting with a private airport lounge and pickup. 

Best Things to Do on Your Lanai Babymoon

Hulopoe Bay

Pristine Hulopoe Bay is a Lanai highlight. The white-sand beach is sunbathers’ paradise, while snorkelers celebrate its vibrant reefs. Dolphins and sea turtles are frequent visitors too!

Dolphin or Whale Watching Tour

The scenic coastline of Lanai is often visited by wild dolphins and whales, diving across bays and further offshore. Looking for an exciting but laidback activity? Opt for dolphin and whale watching tours. Be sure to check with the tour you book to make sure expecting mothers are allowed on board!

Garden of the Gods

Also known as The Fire of Kawelo, this rock garden shows off lunar landscapes populated with boulders and rock towers. Bring your camera along for an amazing photoshoot op; the formations are particularly fiery come sunset.

Hours: 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Lanai Cat Sanctuary

Cat lovers have to see this labor of love – over 600 hundred rescue cats have found a home at Lanai Cat Sanctuary. Come play, volunteer, maybe even adopt these rescues! It’s literally cats, cats, and more cats.

Hours: 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Polihua Beach

Long, wide, and besieged with strong waves, Polihua Beach is more scenic than swim-friendly. Venture in if you’ve got a vehicle with four-wheel drive and set up a picnic by the water. Across from the Kalohi Channel is Molokai and Oahu’s Diamond Head. 

Hawaii Babymoon Suggestions Based on Category

While you can’t go wrong with any Hawaiian island for a babymoon, your preferences might lead you to prefer one place over the other.

To help you make the decision of where to go easier, here are some categories and suggestions!

  • Adventure babymoon: Kauai, Maui, or the Big Island
  • Relaxing babymoon: Lanai or Maui
  • For the best beaches: Oahu or Maui
  • Resort babymoon: the Four Seasons Hualalai on the Big Island, the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua on Maui, Four Seasons on Lanai, or Timbers Resort on Kauai
  • For easy drive-up views: Oahu, Maui, or Kauai

You can also see a much more detailed comparison of which island is best for you in this post.

In conclusion…

I hope you’re super excited about babymooning in Hawaii! As I write this, we just got back from Kauai for our babymoon, and it was beyond epic. It was romantic, adventurous, majorly photo-worthy, and relaxing all at the same time!

We chose Kauai for our babymoon in Hawaii simply because it was the only major Hawaiian island we hadn’t visited yet! Which island would you choose?

  1. How many nights should we go for? Should we just go to just 1 island or split our trip to multiple islands? Mother-to-be will be 13-14 weeks.

    1. Hi Brandon!

      I’d go for as long as you can since it’s such a long flight! If you can go for more than four days, then I would island hop. But if not, you may just want to stick to one island. And if you can only do one (or two) islands, I would go to Maui (and then Kauai).

  2. We are planning our babymoon in January. Not sure if weather is going to be ideal for that or not. Which islands do you recommend?
