Kauai, Hawaii

There’s a rea­son why Hawaii is so pop­u­lar for wed­dings and hon­ey­moons: its stun­ning land­scapes, per­fect sun­sets, wa­ter­falls, golden sands and crash­ing waves are as ro­man­tic as it gets. Kauai, the old­est of the Hawai­ian is­lands, is smaller and less pop­u­lated and has soar­ing cliffs and heav­enly beaches.

Where to stay: The big­gest and most lux­u­ri­ous re­sort on the is­land, Grand Hy­att Kauai Re­sort & Spa, of­fers pri­vate beach ca­banas, thatched-roof bun­ga­lows for mas­sages, se­cluded gar­dens and a restau­rant where din­ers eat in huts sus­pended over a koi pond. Rooms start from Dh1,528. For more in­for­ma­tion see www.kauai.hy­att.com.

Get­ting there: Fly­ing time is around 20 hours, 20 min­utes. Re­turn flights on Vir­gin At­lantic and Hawai­ian Air­lines start from Dh8,845. For more info see www.flight­net­work.com.
