Indulge in a tandem spa treatment.

Hawai‘i remains one of the romance capitals of the world, with 82 percent of visitors choosing the islands as a marriage or honeymoon destination. With that in mind, even when it comes to the typically solo pursuit of getting a spa treatment, local spas go out of their way to accommodate couples wanting to be pampered together, so honeymooners and lovebirds need not spend a single minute apart.
