Six Days In Maui

Last week Kris and I went to Maui to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary! It was my first time to Hawaii and Kris' second time. It was a trip that we had been planning for about a year and it was such a blast! We try to take a trip every year that is just us - it is so special to have that time! I had a bunch of requests to share what we did while in Maui, so here is our travel diary! This post contains affiliate links but is not sponsored.

Since we live in South Florida, the trip to Hawaii was a long one! We had one layover each way and landed at the main Maui airport. I always try to be as comfortable as possible when traveling so I opted for my most comfy jeans and a soft cardigan!

We opted not to rent a car for the week so took a shuttle to our hotel that was included in our package that we booked at We were really happy with our experience with and the discount we got on our combined package! We have also used Costco travel in the past and loved them too (I know, who knew Costco did travel, ha!). 

When we were looking at hotel options we had a few in mind but ultimately went with the Grand Wailea. Since Kris had been to Maui before he knew that he wanted to stay in Wailea and this hotel had everything we were looking for - beach front, spa, beautiful pools and a lot of other amenities! We also looked at these hotels:
  • Four Seasons - recently renovated and next door to the Grand Wailea. It was smaller than the Grand Wailea and is really beautiful as well! 
  • Andaz Maui - We actually had dinner here and it was such a chic hotel! It reminded me of South Beach in Hawaii - so pretty.
We ultimately picked the Grand Wailea because of the property, amenities and that they had an ocean front room when we were booking - that was important to us! 

When we arrived at the hotel on Friday we had been traveling for about 14 hours so we were exhausted! We checked in and went down to the Molokini restaurant which is a casual full service restaurant next to the pools. The sunset was incredible and the food was amazing - the ahi tuna nachos were my favorite! I wore this green dress that was so comfortable! You can dress it up with heels, but i opted for flip flops. 

I wore this dress that is an Amazon Prime find and under $22! It wore my normal size medium.

The next two days, Saturday and Sunday, were spent by the pool! At the hotel, guests woke up REALLY early to reserve chairs near umbrellas. So we decided to rent a cabana each day which was reasonable and made it so we didn't have to think about reserving chairs! We relaxed, read books (i read Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis), went on the hotel water slides and had Mai Tais in the swim up grotto - SO fun!

What I wore to the pool each day: 

We had two great dinners those nights - at Mama's Fish House and Morimotos. I recommend making reservations for Mama's Fish House long before you arrive! 

What I wore to dinner: 
Cold Shoulder Dress //  Sandals // Bag

On Monday we had a tee time to play golf at Kapalua. It was on Kris' bucket list to play at this course and I rode with him in the cart! I wasn't sure if I would like it honestly, but I had a blast! It was so fun to see him in his element playing golf and the views were incredible! It took us about an hour to get there and back from Wailea - thank goodness for Uber! That night we just got room service and went to bed early - we were exhausted! 

What I wore golfing: 

The following day we went to the spa for a couples massage and then spent the rest of the day relaxing by the beach. We went on a walk along the ocean front path that takes you past several of the beach front hotels. At this point we were totally lamenting it being our last night, ha! For our final dinner on the island we went to the Grand Wailea's luau. It was such an amazing experience to learn more about the culture of Hawaii and eat the amazing food they had prepared! Plus the sunset was phenomenal that night. It was worth the splurge! 

What I wore to the luau: 

On Wednesday we were scheduled to fly out at about 9pm. That morning we packed our bags and got ready to go to our last excursion which was a helicopter tour of West Maui and Molokai! We flew with Blue Hawaiian Tours and it was so well run. It was an incredible way to see the islands and I felt like I was in Jurassic Park at points with all of the mountains and views. We opted for the 50 minute tour. 

Thankfully our hotel had a hospitality suite so we were able to go to the pool for a few hours and then get changed before getting on our red eye flight! Hawaii blew me away and I can't wait to take the girls back with us next time!
