Since you normally hit up historical sites but you're looking for something new... hawaii is the right place for it! It's some of the "newest" land on the planet. 

Normally i would suggest  Kaua'i for a honeymoon and suggest staying over near  Hanalei possible splurge at  The St. Regis Princeville Resort It's beautiful and tropical with waterfalls running off the nearby moutains. But Kauai is the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands... so let's move to the newer/younger end of the island chain... the  Kona

The Big Island (Kona) is the newest of the all the hawaiian islands, in fact it's actually currently still expanding. There is something unique about this island... it feels different. I personally attribute to the fact that you're standing on some of the newest land on the planet. It also looks so different. Part of the island looks like you're on Mars because it's pretty much one big lava flow down to the water.

There are many nice resorts on the island, but for a honeymoon, i think you should go big!  Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka'upulehu. This could be one of the nicest hotels in the world. Even if you don't stay there, it's a great place to have dinner. They have a restaurant down near the water called  Beach Tree which is casual and has a great view at sunset. They have a couple other more expensive dining options there, but i found Beach Tree to be the best because of the outside seating and the views. 

There are oher places to stay nearby, and save some money. One would be,  Fairmont Orchid Hawaii which is a very nice place in it's own right with nice views, private snorkeling beach and big pool, it's more of a traditional big hawaiian resort that you would expect to find in  Wailea Beach. Another favorite place of mine is the  Mauna Kea Beach Hotel which has an amazing beach, but it's more of a family place so not ideal for a honeymoon. Lunch and trip to beach there could a nice afternoon though. 

On the big island there is plenty to keep you busy too. Great waterfalls and some easy day hikes. The  Akaka Falls was nice and the  Waipio Valley is beautiful. 

If you're not feeling Big Isand, the  Hotel Hana Maui and Honua Spa is pretty secluded and romantic and great for a honeymoon and just relaxing. 

Have fun!! I'm jealous!

Hana Kai-Maui Resort This is Hands down the most romantic little Bugalow resort in the World its a bit of a drive through the most stunning parts of Maui but once you get there you are off the Tourist grid for good. the place is situated on a lush green field above a aw inspring Cliff formations. wake up to the sound of rolling waves and fresh morning air. 


Galapagos a Biologically Historical Site. getting onboard a boat for that was maby one of the best decisions i've made.


Esperanza Resort Quiet, cool, relaxing, off the grid, not as touristy as you'd think, Celebrity Watch! met 3 Pro Football players last time i was here! but seriously stunning property with A+ accomidations!

I've only been to Maui in Hawaii but it is absolutely beautiful. We stayed in Kihei in a nice little condo that was 50-steps away from the beach. There are alot of landmarks and historical sites for you to visit such as Road to HanaOld Lahaina Lu'au (the most authentic lu'au), Haleakala Volcano (an inactive volcano), and of course the many beaches.

There is also a vineyard you can visit (have you ever tried Pineapple wine?) and the old sugar cane factory. 

If you go in December (and depending on when) you'll be there just in time for whale-watching season! We heard whales singing in the water when we went snorkeling and it was amazing. Oh, have I mentioned all the water activities? :)

Maui is a very laid-back island. I don't think we've driven over 20mph unless it was on the highway and even then we were going under 50mph. If you're looking for some place to just kick back and take it one day at a time I highly suggest Maui!

If you are thinking Hawaii, I would reccommend Kaua'i, its known to be the most romantic and most scenic island. My fiance and I stayed at the Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort and Spa. We could walk to everything including grocery stores, restaurants and the beach of course. The water near this resort in Kapaa is not swimmable due to rough seas, but its still breathtaking! There is little night life here on Kauai, so picture yourself and your new husband spending lots of quality time together taking moonlit walks along the beach or sharing a romantic dinner watching the sunset, just enjoying eachother's company. I think its the perfect honeymoon island.

If you are lovers of history, I very highly recommend Istanbul.  Truly a magnificent place.  The people, culture and history just can't be beat.
