I am in the planning stage of my trip to Hawaii. This is going to be a surprise for my wife for her B'day. Plan is to come to Hawaii for 10 days so basically try to visit 2 islands : Oahu & Kauai. Some basic facts that I know will help you guys make recommendations
Dates October 9th to October 19th
Arrive in HNL : 6:10 PM on the 9th
Depart from HNL : 7:50 PM on the 19th
Age : We're both 29 (no kids)
Interests : clubs, bars, relax on beach, spend time with each other
Islands I am thinking of: Oahu (4 nights) & Kauai (6 nights) (please offer suggestions as I am confused)
Budget : As low as possible, as we just bought a house, trying to squeeze in the trip
I see flights online approximately $550 p.p RT from EWR
So far I have managed to reserve the Westin Princeville Villas using a combination of SPG points and cash (4800 points + $90 per night) for the Kauai part. This can be cancelled.
1. Are these two islands good at the beginning of October?
2. Can you please suggest some itineraries? Idea is to party a little (25%), do some activities (zipline, snorkel 25%), and relax and spend time with each other a lot (50%, almost like a honeymoon)
Looking forward to hearing from you experts out there.
Also which is better:
- The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas (North)
- Sheraton Kauai Resort (South)
