Serving up everything from Hawaiian regional cuisine to the freshest sushi in America, we’re confident that each dining spot will deliver a meal to be remembered.

Mahina & Sun’s

Chef Ed Kenney offers his unique take on island cuisine, with a clear emphasis on utilizing local, organic ingredients. Located at the stylish Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club, this hip, casual restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night (featuring expertly crafted cocktails).

Alan Wong’s Honolulu

Chef Alan Wong’s Honolulu flagship is Hawaiian regional cuisine at its finest. Menu items like macadamia nut-coconut crusted lamb chops and twice cooked short rib are heavenly, while the chef’s tasting menu stands out with an all-star lineup of delicious offerings.

Hoku’s at the Kahala Resort

Hoku’s is a fantastic choice for creative fusion food, as the restaurant merges Asian, Hawaiian, and European flavors to perfection. Expect a twist on contemporary island classics, like salt crusted rack of lamb or Kurobuta pork chop with Maui gold pineapple and shishito peppers.

Roy’s Waikiki

This dining destination is truly a honeymoon treat. Based in Waikiki, the restaurant is known as a pioneer of Hawaii regional cuisine and remains fabulous today with its top-notch wine list, decadent desserts, and signature fusion entree items.

Sushi Sasabune

Sushi fans flock to this South King St. favorite from all over the world. The main attraction is no doubt the restaurant’s unforgettable omakase sushi experience. Be sure to sit at the counter for an up-close glimpse at chef Seiji Kumagawa’s methodical preparation. You can go for the omakase or a la carte at the restaurant’s regular tables too.

Honeymoon Inspiration: Shipwreck Beach (Greece)

Heading to Greece for your honeymoon? Don’t miss out on Navagio Beach, better known as Shipwreck Beach.

Situated on the island of Zakynthos, this incredible travel destination features a white-sand beach, steep limestone cliffs, and crystal clear water.

It’s easy to see why this Ionian Island site is a favorite with honeymooners.

Real Honeymoon: The Islands of Moorea and Bora Bora

Earlier this month we asked couples to send us photos and stories from their Wanderable honeymoons, and we heard wonderful tales of adventure and romance and saw adorable snapshots of couples snorkeling and skiing, and everything in between. However, one submission really stood out: a beautiful photo spread from a Wanderer named Rachel Ann who used Wanderable to help fund her honeymoon with her new husband Scott to the French Polynesian islands of Moorea and Bora Bora. We will let their awe-inspiring photos speak for themselves (Rachel just happens to be a professional photographer…)

Rachel + Scott’s Honeymoon: 

“Well this was pretty much a dream come true for us.  For about six years I had a gorgeous poster of a lone beach in French Polynesia, you know, the one with the palm tree reaching out over the water?  I’ve always wanted to go, and stay in a hut on the water, and this is exactly what we did!  Photos do not do this place justice.  It was truly unbelievable, and gorgeous, postcard perfect.” – Rachel

A very special thanks to Rachel Ann for sharing this wonderful Wanderable honeymoon with us! You can view more of her photography at her website, rachelann.com.

If you would like to submit photos of your own honeymoon for a future post, please contact us at hello@wanderable.com. We would love to hear from you!
