Plan the Honeymoon of a Lifetime At Mauna Kea Resort & Residences

Many couples who tied the knot during the pandemic or are opting for non-traditional or intimate celebrations this year are planning ‘mega-moons’—not just a vacation to relax after a wedding, but the trip of a lifetime after several years of limited travel. Couples are seeking the ultimate indulgence and adventure, and Mauna Kea Resort + Residences on the Island of Hawaii offers both—and then some!

Situated along the rugged Koahala Coast on one of Hawaii’s most geographically diverse island, Mauna Kea Resort offers three distinct luxury stay opportunities – the iconic romance destination, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel; the idyllic The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort on one of America’s most swimmable beaches; and the private and exclusive Mauna Kea Residences, ranging from sweeping clifftop villas to modern oceanfront condos that all offer the perfect balance of privacy and resort amenity access. In addition to the luxe accommodations, Mauna Kea Resort also offers the following bucket list-worthy activities and adventures—

  • Private Sunset Dinners: Honeymooners can bask in the natural beauty and distinct Island cuisine of Hawaii with a private Sunset Aha’aina experience that includes a private, four-course dinner for two with wine pairings at one of the resort’s five distinct outdoor venues. Optional add-ons include a personalized bottle of Prosecco, bespoke cocktails, professional photography, and live music by a solo guitarist. Favorite backdrops for the romantic dinners include Mauna Kea Golf Course’s Hole No. 3 atop a cliff of black lava rock overlooking a quiet Pacific Ocean cove, a serene garden terrace, or private vista deck.

  • A Bird’s Eye Island View: In partnership with local outfitter Blue Hawaiian Helicopters, Mauna Kea Resort offers an in-flight adventure with a customizable VIP Helicopter experience that takes off directly from the resort’s grounds. This exclusive experience is tailored to the small groups and couples, with stops including towering waterfalls for the perfect date or outdoor picnic spot, cave system spelunking, or an up-close, bird’s-eye view of the island’s legendary volcanoes and lava flows.

  • Couples’ Wellness Journeys: Four couples seeking the ultimate wellness journey, Mauna Kea Resort’s guided “Journeys” at the world-class The Mauna Kea Spa and the Hapuna Spa by Mandara offer international-inspired treatments and immersive experiences that take key elements of ancient wisdom to restore personal balance. Each one is curated and customizable with the intention of transporting the mind, body, and spirit to destinations around the globe.
  • Treatments and experiences include an Asian Journey (Air/Enliven) including a Balinese Massage, Signature Facial, Coffee and Coconut Body Polish, and Asian Bathing Ritual; an Indian Journey (Fire/Replenish) including a Biotec Skin Suface Facial, Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Grow, and Indian Bathing Ritual; a Mediterranean Journey (Water/Release) including a Citrus Body Gloss, Sound Wave Therapy, Customized Massage, and Mediterranean Bathing Ritual; and a New World Journey (Earth/Embrace) with a Frangipani Monoi Salt Glow, Acupressure, CND Shellac Mani/Pedi, and more.
