Fiji is considered by some to be “heaven on earth”. With over 333 islands, the islands boast miles and miles of extreme pristine beauty and locations for heavenly, unforgettable destination weddings.
Throughout the islands there is a vast selection of stunning resorts. Choose from casual resort with a barefoot wedding on the beach or a luxurious resort with a formal ceremony overlooking the stunning South Pacific.
When you’re ready to begin the honeymoon, the Fiji Islands are tailor made for relaxed adventure, offering almost every conceivable activity to choose from. As newlyweds, hike mountain trails, raft white waters, or speed across and above the ocean surf. Follow the adventure with romance and spend the day on your own private island and have a sunset dinner for two on the beach. If you feel the need to say “Bula” and experience local culture visit a local village, drink some kava and attend a fire walking ceremony.
Whatever you choose, Fiji is a paradise that can make your dream wedding come true.

Look no further than Costa Rica if you want to combine adventure, excitement and an exotic destination for your destination wedding and honeymoon. There are not only tropical rainforests and beautiful beaches, but surprises as well – active volcanoes, tropical jungles and windswept cloud forests.
Approximately 27% of the country is “protected”, providing an abundance and variety of wildlife in the preserved areas. After saying “I do” couples who dream to see monkeys, sloths, sea turtles and exotic birds (maybe even an elusive jaguar) can venture into nature and view them in their natural habitats.
Save the fireworks for after the wedding and visit Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica’s very active volcano. If after all the natural adventures you need a little rest and relaxation, head to the seaside where there is no shortage of beaches and luxury hotels on either the Pacific or Caribbean coasts. There’s always surfing and snorkeling if lounging on the beach is not for you.
Getting married in Costa Rica is easy – deciding which amazing place to exchange your vows and then where to explore as your journey into your new life together will be the challenge!

I've put together a list of some of my favorite hotels in Hawaii - all PERFECT for honeymoons - or just a fun getaway!
"The loveliest fleet of islands that lies anchored in any ocean." -- Mark Twain
Hawaii is the world's most geographically isolated landmass, located 2,400 miles from the West Coast of the U.S. and often called the "Crossroads of the Pacific." Many people are surprised to learn that Hawaii actually consists of 137 islands stretching across more than 6,400 square miles in the North Pacific Ocean. The eight major islands commonly referred to as the Hawaiian Islands are Ni'ihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Kaho'olawe, Maui, and the Big Island of Hawaii.
Hawai'i: The Big Island
She is the youngest island, still growing with spewing molten lava from the earth’s depths to create new land. Hawaiian legend tells the story of the goddess Pele and the demigod Kamapua‘a battling over the island. Eventually striking a deal, the two decided to split the island – one with the drier Kona side and the other with the tropical Hilo side. Diverse is the word most commonly used to describe her natural beauty. There’s the Hamakua Coast, where vertical cliffs are adorned by abundant waterfalls and dotted with deep valleys.
This luxurious beachfront resort is nestled on 32 acres of sunny Kohala coast at Mauna Lani. In addition to beautiful grounds, it also fronts one of the area’s nicest beaches and protected Pauoa Bay offers some of the best snorkeling on the coast. For the ultimate in relaxation, try the “Spa Without Walls” oceanside massage or sit back and watch the Kohala sunset from the vantage point of a swaying hammock.
One North Kaniku Drive
Kohala Coast , HI 96743
Kona Village Resort
This unique resort is known for its thatched-roof bungalows and South Pacific village-style accommodations. The bungalows are situated in tropical gardens, lagoons and sandy lava beaches. There are no phones, televisions, clocks or radios to disturb the ambiance and tranquil nature of the setting. Some bungalows feature private whirlpools on their lanai.
Kailua Kona , HI 96745 Phone: 808-325-5555
The eldest of her sister islands, Kaua‘i has become more beautiful with age and is blessed with panoramic vistas so magnificent they defy description. It’s no wonder that over 60 movies have been filmed with her stunning scenery, making the island known as “Hollywood’s tropical back lot.” Kaua‘i is home to two of the world’s natural wonders: Na Pali Coast and Waimea Canyon. Hugging 15 miles of awe-inspiring northern coastline, the towering sea cliffs of Na Pali Coast plunge 2,000 feet to the sea. To the west is Waimea Canyon, measuring ten miles long, two miles wide and over 3,500 feet deep.
Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa
On Keoneloa Bay just down the road from Po‘ipu Beach, this 50-acre beachfront resort reflects classic ’20s Hawaiian architecture and décor. Hotel features include an action pool with waterfalls, waterslide and Jacuzzis, expansive saltwater lagoons, tropical gardens and crescent beaches.
1571 Poipu Road
Koloa , HI 96756
Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation
This is the only condominium resort on Po‘ipu Beach (and truly one of my favorite!). Long famous for its 35 acres of landscaped gardens, the grounds are well maintained and the expansive units feature tropical décor. One of the few condominiums to have a restaurant on site as well, the Plantation Gardens features Hawaiian regional cuisine and one of the coolest bars on Kaua‘i.
2253 Poipu Road
Koloa , HI 96756
The Hawaiians have proclaimed Maui No Ka‘Oi, meaning “Maui is the best” and it is an island worthy of such a superlative. She offers an ideal mix of nature and sophistication. Her enduring popularity is her uncanny ability to dazzle and soothe the spirit at the same time. The island is named after the demigod Maui, who drew the islands up from the ocean and harnessed the sun from atop the 10,000 foot Haleakala, or House of the Sun. Her magical beginning has given us miles of pristine beaches, pastoral villages near Hana, verdant lush rainforests, countless waterfalls and grassy ranchlands.
Grand Wailea Resort and Spa
While all the rooms are spacious and luxuriously appointed, the Napua Tower offers special concierge services and extra amenities. The resort has an incredible 50,000 sq. ft. Spa Grande, offering nearly every treatment imaginable. The hotel’s huge riverstyle pool with unique water features, deep scuba diving pool, the world’s only water elevator and several waterslides are a magnet for families.
3850 Wailea Alanui
Wailea, Maui , HI 96753
Sheraton Maui Resort
Situated at historic Black Rock on Ka‘anapali Beach, you’ll find the best snorkeling on the west side of Maui. Sprawled over 23 acres of tropical landscaping, 83% of rooms and suites face the ocean. Enjoy Sheraton’s large, 142-yard lagoon-style pool, nightly cliff-diving ceremony and many complimentary cultural activities on property.
Ka’anapali Beach Hotel
With 432 rooms, two restaurants, a poolside bar and grill, this is the ideal setting to turn your Hawaiian dreams into lifelong memories. Serenades by singing employees, Hawaiian regional cuisine, complimentary nightly hula shows, signature interactive cultural activities, weekly arts and crafts fair, welcome breakfast and farewell lei ceremony add to the value. Enjoy Hawaiian ho’okipa (hospitality), aloha at its best.

Lahaina , HI Phone: 800-262-8450
The center of the Hawaiian Islands, O‘ahu proudly bears the phrase “the heart of Hawai‘i.” Her diverse island lifestyle is home to Honolulu, the state’s capital and the trendiest and most cosmopolitan city in Hawai‘i. Waikiki, a mecca of tourism and attractions, is a 450-acre man-made beach of vacation fun, with beach, surf, hotels, shopping, dining and entertainment. Beyond Waikiki, discover O‘ahu’s vast natural richness, from the pristine sanctuary of Hanauma Bay to the towering surf of the famous North Shore and the lush tropical rainforest deep within her two mountain ranges.
Long favored by jetsetters and celebrities, this legendary hotel is famous for its services. Spacious newly re-decorated rooms and suites, it has an idyllic crescent-shape, white-sand beach and lagoon and is home to bottlenose dolphins, tropical fish and sea turtles.
