The US of A is a superb place to start married life, but many couples only consider the mainland. Might we respectfully also suggest the 50th State, the island idyll of Hawaii, as a happening honeymoon destination?
Hawaii may have been the final state to join the Union, but this is very much a case of the last not being the least. The landscapes are among the most extraordinary on the planet, with an array of exciting ways to explore them from helicopter tours to surfing safaris and even the chance to swim with dolphins or whale watch.
Another chief attraction when considering a luxury Hawaii
honeymoon is the quality of the accommodation. We at Original
Travel have visited and recommend a range of slick hotels on each
of the main islands, from honeymoon favourite Four Seasons
to other excellent hotels, all superbly set up to cater to newlywed
We and the concierges at the hotels can arrange everything from candlelit dinners at romantic locations to champagne breakfasts, private beach picnics, horseback rides at sunset and other activities tailored specifically to honeymooners.
Another bonus of a luxury honeymoon in Hawaii is how well it combines with other classic destinations. The easiest way to visit the islands is via LA, so a combination of California - for road trips, wine, cities and national parks - and the beaches and dramatic landscapes of Hawaii makes for a winning twin centre trip. Another (more leftfield) combination is a honeymoon to Hawaii and Japan, which adds a quirky cultural element to the proceedings.
