10 Best Romantic Hotels on the Garden Island

Vacationing is often about romance, and whether you're honeymooning or escaping with a longtime love, there's a good chance you're looking for accommodations that will enhance the romance. Kauai is home to a broad spectrum of romantic hotels, from luxurious large resorts to quaint, modest inns, travelers have options to find the hotel that suits them best. Whether you're looking to escape to an oceanfront room with no electronics on the North Shore, or enjoy couple's spa treatments and high end dinners on the South Side, you'll find it here on this list.

For honeymooners and other couples looking to spoil themselves, check in at the St. Regis Princeville Resort on the North Shore. Set high on a bluff, this resort is where couples go for luxurious spa treatments, truly fine dining, and elaborate rooms fit for royalty.

On the other end of the spectrum is the Hanalei Colony Resort. While this resort is beautiful and set on a beach, the lack of televisions, telephones and stereos in the rooms take away any distractions from couple's time. Set amongst some of the island's best beaches, this is the place to go to just enjoy nature, and each other.

Somewhere in between the two former options are resorts like the Sheraton Kauai and the Marriott at Coconut Beach. These resorts rest among an abundance of beautiful beaches and romantic restaurants to enjoy for romance off the property.

Enhance the romance with our list of Kauai's ten most romantic hotels.
