Hecks Take Kauai: Honeymoon Vacation
Aloha! We just got back from our week-long honeymoon vacation to Lihue, Kauai. We got married last New Year's Eve, but weren't able to take a real honeymoon due to job schedules and busy life in general! Let's just say that this vacation was much needed and well deserved in my opinion. It might have taken 11 months, but holy moly, it was worth the wait. I have never had such a relaxing, plan-free week. Here are some photos of our adventures throughout the week!
We booked our flights with Hawaiian Airlines. I love flying on Hawaiian because they always have the best service! Hubby had downloaded a couple movies for us to watch so we had plenty of entertainment. I love having a good travel buddy! We flew out mid-morning and made a pit stop in Maui before arriving in Lihue. We picked up our rental car which we had for the first few days of the trip. Then, it was off to our hotel! We chose to stay at the Kauai Marriot Resort. I had seen a couple reviews for this resort and heard great comments about it. My best advice when picking a resort you have never been to: read the reviews and do your research! The resort was everything it had said it would be and it was just what we wanted! A beautiful place for us to relax with a private sandy beach and huge pool! I would recommend it to anyone.
We originally booked a room with a garden view, but after finding out that we were on our Honeymoon, the staff upgraded us to a partial ocean view! Our room was spacious with a private deck. The only downside was that the fridge was in the ONLY cupboard I didn't look in, so we went without a fridge for the whole week (I'm still kicking myself in the pants for that one).
The grounds of the resort are beautiful! On the way to the lobby, there is a large koi pond in the garden area. The walkway from the lobby leads out to a gorgeous view of the pool and beach.
