Romance on Maui

With its balmy ocean breezes and glowing sunsets, seductive settings and heart-stirring views, Maui was made for falling in love. Here are some ways our resorts are amping up the romance.

Following an eight-month closure and $75 million renovation, Four Seasons Resort Lanai welcomed back guests earlier this year. Tech-billionaire Larry Ellison owns 98 percent of the island, including this ultra-luxurious resort overlooking Mānele Bay, so over-the-top opulence is a given. So is the romance: the resort offers secluded lounges, an adults-only pool, private boat charters and options for dining under the stars. And the bay below has a legendary Sweetheart Rock.

AndazAndaz Maui entices brides-to-be with swoon-worthy settings and planners happy to help craft that dream wedding. But why wait ‘til the day-of to celebrate, when you can toast the night before? Private cabana dining starts with a chef consultation to create a custom five-course menu, and wine paired by the resort’s sommelier.
