I started questions on the Hawaii forum but now that I've made the decision to go to the Big Island for our 20th anniversary in May 2015, I was advised by some great people on the other forum to post some questions here.
Mauna Lani, Fairmont Orchid, or Mauna Kea Hotel.
Our budget approx. $500 per night but might possibly do $600. We love a beautiful beach and we do like to go in the water. I'd like there to be a bar near the beach or swimming pool area. We're not necessarily thrilled by any "Disney-esque" hotels. We've been to the other islands before so any hotel that demonstrates Hawaiian culture would be right up our alley. We are planning 7 or 8 nights for this trip.
We love to eat out, but fine dining isn't a necessity. We will be looking for a special place for our anniversary dinner. Also, I would love some ideas on possible vow renewal locations.
Any info would be appreciated..Thank you all!
