Honeymoon Memories: Part Two

I shared a little bit about our honeymoon yesterday, but since it's a dreary day here in LA, I thought I'd do a bit more reminiscing about being in love in paradise.

We Honeymooned at the Grand Wailea in Maui, Hawaii.



I'm a Hilton Diamond Member from all of my work travel so we paid for all of our accommodations with Hilton Points (in case you're wondering that's 480,000 points). We also got upgraded to a top floor Ocean-View room. Beautiful!


The resort is amazing! We spent a good amount of time just hanging out there in the beautiful pools, watersides, rivers, and jacuzzis. We also took advantage of the world famous spa at the spa with massages and Roman/Japanese baths. We also did the some snorkeling at the beach and saw some awesome fish including sea turtles, morey eels, and what I thought was a sea snake but turns out it was almost certainly another eel. (Hint: buy cat food at the grocery store and bring a plastic bag of it out to snorkel and feed the fish. They go CRAZY!)

We had dinner at the Grand Wailea's floating restaurant, Humu, which was spectacular.


We also had amazing Dinners at Ruth Chis and Mama's Fish House:


We did the bike trip down Haleakala volcano and as part of the bike trip got to taste wine at Maui's only winery. Like everything on Maui the wine was super sweet, like Boone's Farm sweet. It was definitely not Napa, but cool to do anyway.


We went on the Road to Hana and some some great views and rainforest. This picture is funny because we were in the rainforest and the Mr. wanted to take my picture but right before he snapped the shot I started getting attacked by a swarm of mosquitoes and started running. He took the picture anyway. Hilarious!


We finished off the trip with a Sunset Dinner & Booze Cruise. All you can eat Hawaiian BBQ and tropical drinks while cruising the West side of Maui. Amazing.



Ahhh paradise.

Sadly we can't go back for our Anniversary this year. However, we are planning Carribean Cruise this winter and/or a trip to Italy and Greece next Summer. More on those later...

Didn't you JUST LOVE Mama's House? Been to Maui twice and did all the things you did. Actually liked the two trips to the Big Island better-believe it or not! Mama's Fish House-A MEMORABLE MEAL!
