A moonlit beach and the right person by your side are all you really need to experience romance in the Aloha State. Still, these hotels offer the right combination of atmosphere and amenities—like adults-only pools or spas with couples’ treatments—for those looking to savor some special aloha with their sweetheart. Whether you’re getting “Maui’d,” engaged or just looking for a romantic interlude, the Valley Isle has a perfect spot for you and your valentine.

TIP: Don’t waste your day! Since most hotels have check-in until 4pm, be sure to ask for an early check-in.
Montage Kapalua Bay
The virtual “end of the road” of West Maui resorts is its most luxurious, discreet and romantic. Starting at 1,250 square feet, its spacious one-, two- and three-bedroom units were built as residences with top-name appliances in full kitchens and deep soaking tubs and separate showers in marble-lined bathrooms. Multiple terraced pools and beach services on a hidden beach offer privacy for lounging in the sun, while the vast, stand-alone spa features its own infinity-edge pool. Sunset and views of Molokai across the channel are breathtaking. Explore Hawaiian cultural activities on site or go snorkeling in one of the nearby pristine bays. Indoor-outdoor Cane & Canoe Restaurant specializes in steak and local seafood with tropical influences.
- Spa Montage Kapalua Bay offers several unique couples’ treatments, including one that begins with a coconut milk bath in a stone tub outdoors and continues with a massage in the roomy outdoor hale (thatched hut).
- Hop in Montage’s latest-model Cadillac shuttle to sample nearby romantic dining at Merriman’s on Kapalua Point or go for an exhilarating side-by-side zipline tour high above the resort with Kapalua Ziplines.
