On our last trip to Hawaii, we had the opportunity to check out some of the best honeymoon resorts in Kauai. 

Rather than spend time with a long list of places to stay for couples, we thought we would just narrow it down and present our ideas for the most romantic hotels and resorts in Kauai.

If you're thinking of spending some time on the Garden Isle for a romantic vacation or honeymoon, one of these accommodation choices will certainly make your trip to Kauai even better...

Kauai Romantic Inns & Oceanfront Cottages

Hale Kua B&B, Kauai

For affordable accommodation in Kauai that’s great for couples on a budget, consider the Hale Kua B&B. This secluded place to stay near Kauai’s south shore offers self-contained units and privacy, perfect for a bed and breakfast honeymoon in Kauai. (4896 E Kua Road, Lawai, HI  800-440-4353)
