Whether celebrating the fact you were able to get away with the family or taking a family getaway to celebrate, Marriott Hawaii Resort Collection now offers a lineup of celebratory stay options for a variety of occasions. Marriott Hawaii Resort Collection’s Choose Your Moon packages go beyond honeymoons and cater to milestones of all shapes and sizes.


Honeymoons and Hawai’i are synonymous, and for good reason. The idyllic landscape, luxury resorts and slew of outdoorsy activities set the perfect scene for a romantic getaway. Stay at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on the Big Island of Hawai’i and enjoy beachfront accommodations, a round of golf and fine dining with your partner, or bring your friends along for a post-wedding group trip — or, as Marriott calls it, a buddy-moon.


The Buddy-Moon package includes a five-night stay at Koloa Landing Resort on Kaua’i for the newlyweds and friends or kids. Enjoy a group getaway at the largest villa on the island of Kaua’i, Koloa Landing’s Penthouse. Adventure around the pristine island with friends, swimming, hiking and four-wheeling your way through Kaua’i. Work up an appetite before heading to Holoholo Grill for a fresh poke tasting. Guests and families staying with the buddy-moon package receive $200 worth of groceries stocked and waiting in the villa as well as a rental car to explore the island.


Parents-to-be enjoy the Baby-Moon package offered at Wailea Beach resort in Maui. Guests receive VIP services from food and beverage to discounted prices on beverages and cabanas. Enjoy the fleeting leisurely days and quiet nights on your baby-moon to Hawai’i.

Celebrate your special new addition with an Adoption-Moon at Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa on the Big Island of Hawai’i. Enjoy breakfast by the beach, the possibility for a room upgrade, celebratory Champagne for the adults and daily yoga practice.


For any other big event worth celebrating, check into Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa in Waikiki with the Milestone-Moon package. Guests receive discounted room rates, lei-making lessons, complimentary scuba or snorkeling lessons and (hopefully) see some legendary Oahu rainbows.


If your engagement has been a long time coming and you want to celebrate, the Kaua’i Marriott Resort offers an incredible engagement package. The Early-Moon option offers luxury accommodations and a four-course dinner for two in the poolside gazebo.


If you have to celebrate something, it may as well be in Hawai’i.

Book a Family Wellness Escape with Sensei

Family travels don’t necessarily need to be in theme parks or resorts with massive kids’ clubs. In fact, more upscale properties across the world cater to both adults and kids, and wellbeing brand Sensei joins the growing trend of family wellness travel. Sensei’s Wellness Science team, led by Dr. Vishal Patel, emphasizes the importance of family travels and exposing young travelers to wellness pursuits. Developing healthy habits at a young age can have long-lasting effects on an individual’s life, and bonding via family trips alleviates some of the main drivers of loneliness and isolation.
