    6 ways to say "I love you" in Waikiki

    World-class waves. The most bustling island in Hawaii. The birthplace of modern surfing. Waikiki on Oahu is known for all these fun things. But did you know it's also great for romantic excursions?

    Here are six ways to say "I love you" in Waikiki and savor the romance.

    1. Lomilomi massage

    Ah, there's nothing more romantic than relaxation. Go for a traditional lomilomi massage that blends multiple techniques with rich nut oils and special healing elements at the ultimate Infinity Spa retreat on Waikiki Beach. Make it even better with an in-room session for two.

    2. Music under the stars

    Listening to local music is a must in Waikiki. Watching some of the best musicians steal the show under the night sky at the renowned Kani Ka Pila Grille is a beautiful way to celebrate your love in acoustic style. See legends like Bobby Moderow and Kawika Kahiapo on the al fresco stage with island-fresh food and cocktails, too. 

    3. Tying the knot(s)

    From a sought-after wedding destination to vow renewals, Waikiki is a perfect place to tie (or re-tie) the knot. Savor panoramic views from Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort's Oceanfront Terrace wedding venue or get a little more intimate with the tranquil Ocean Garden. Nearby sister Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort also brings new meaning to seaside romance with oceanfront options for the big day or fairytale vow renewals. 

    4. Lei lady lei

Share the love (literally) by creating a lei made of fresh flowers, and then place it around the neck of your loved one in an island-centric act of kindness and love. 

    5. Luxury yacht cruise
