Starwood Hawaii Weddings & Honeymoons
Whether you knew it had to be a destination wedding the moment you said yes or are simply entertaining the idea (we know, sounds pretty good now that we say it!), there’s much to be considered—mostly in regard to the where and how. Allow us to throw another possibility your way, K? Starwood Hawaii has beautiful resorts on four islands, so this post is a little wedding planning homework, if you will.
About those destination weddings… Starwood Hawaii has dedicated wedding specialists at each resort to help. They’ve got wedding packages, ceremony/reception options like chapels + ballrooms, restaurants, luxury suites, culinary pros, and partner vendors on everything from photography to floral. But what you really want to know about are the locations, yes? Here’s a quick breakdown of le options (deets here):
Kauai: St. Regis Princeville (north shore), Sheraton Kauai (southern shores of the Garden Isle)
Oahu: The Moana Surfrider, a Westin Resort & Spa, The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort and Sheraton Waikiki
Maui: Sheraton Maui, Westin Maui, Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas
Explore Maui’s famed road to Hana, watch the sunrise from Haleakala, or tour the sprawling lavender fields in upcountry Maui with a wedding or ‘moon here.
The Big Island of Hawaii: Sheraton Kona with the Bayside Chapel engulfed by lush foliage on one side + the historic Keauhou Bay on the other
Looking at all the photos, we’re thinking of one thing: *the honeymoon*. Naturally one of the biggest draws of a destination wedding in Hawaii is that the honeymoon begins right at “I do”. If you already have one of the aforementioned wedding packages, you can easily transition to a romance package, offered at each resort. Each includes a honeymoon registry + a selection of suites (complete with spas, dining, beach activities, all that good stuff!).
Now, how to pull it all off? For destination weddings, Apple Vacations takes care of travel arrangements and puts you in touch with a planning pro to coordinate the big day.
