Top Ideas for Celebrating Valentines Day in Maui, Hawaii

Want to show your special someone that you love doing life with them? Check out these ideas for how to spend a romantic Valentines Day on Maui!
January 17, 2020

Every February there is one day that we all look forward to and that day just so happens to be Valentine’s Day! It is a day filled with love, laughter, celebration and for taking a moment out of our busy schedules to recognize the people that we love. Whether you plan on celebrating this romantic holiday with that special someone or a group of friends, here are a few ideas for how to have fun on Valentine’s Day in Maui, Hawaii.

Book a Dinner Reservation

If you are looking to celebrate this day of love, go the classic route and plan a nice dinner to enjoy with your loved one(s) at one of Maui’s top restaurants! Whether you were thinking about Merriman’s Maui, The Pour House, or one of the other fine dining establishments around West Maui real estate, you are sure to enjoy a wonderful evening with the special someone(s) in your life! The Maui restaurant options for this event is almost endless but make sure to book a reservation ahead of time as this is one of the more popular evenings to eat out.

Escape for the Night with a Stay-cation Getaway

While your luxury Kaanapali or Kapalua condo seems like a personal paradise, a staycation has the potential to elevate an already special Hawaiian lifestyle! That’s why we think it is a great idea to get away for just the night at one of the abundant vacation rentals or five-star hotels and resorts. You could even make it a true Hawaii romantic getaway by making your way to the other side of the island for the evening!

Book a Cocktail Sunset Cruise

What better way to say I love you than with a champagne toast at sunset on the ocean? That’s what we thought! So why not do this Valentine’s Day right by booking a cruise out of the Maalaea or Lahaina harbor.        

Go on a Small Shopping Spree

Every girl and guy loves a chance to treat themselves to a new clothing item or new toy. That’s why we recommend taking your special someone(s) out shopping this Valentine’s Day. There are a number of shopping boutiques in West Maui, many of which are close to Kaanapali real estate and most Kapalua properties!

Get Outside and Enjoy What Maui Has to Offer

And since we live in Hawaii, why not get outside for this special day? Take your loved ones on a hike or an outdoor adventure activity like jet skiing, sailing, ziplining and more.

Those are a few of our top Valentine’s Day ideas for celebrating in Maui, Hawaii. We hope you have a wonderful and memorable time with your special valentine!
