Spring is a time of renewal, plants begin to grow, trees get back their leaves, and our thoughts turn to romance. For those looking to get married some of the most romantic places can be found in Hawaii and the Caribbean, the same places that also offer honeymoons that leave lasting memories.
This is the ideal combination, travel once to the resort where the wedding will take place, after the ceremony stay on to enjoy an exciting honeymoon and special rates when combined. Wedding guests can also remain at the resort and enjoy a vacation of their own, as most resorts are large enough that the honeymooning couple need not be constantly surrounded by their friends, giving them the privacy they want.
Hawaii is part of the United States, besides being a beautiful exotic place to take ones vows, they have the same rules and conditions as the rest of the country and the Caribbean, a close neighbor to the south, adds an exotic foreign touch, while keeping the details not only familiar and legal but at a much lower rate than back in the USA.

Maui has long been a favorite destination for Americans to vacation, here you will find the All-suite & Villa Fairmont Kea Lani Resort on 22-sunny oceanfront acres in Wailea.
