How to Propose in Maui Hawaii
I’ve been asked many times how one can propose marriage creatively on our island. I tell my own story, and then give suggestions. It’s time to share this with everyone.

Classic Maui Wedding

By |December 16th, 2010|

We attended a recent wedding on the water that was perfect and merits the “Classic Maui Wedding” award.  The ceremony was on the water, next to a pool, where shortly afterwards 2 bars were opened up to us.  The pupus were delicious and the drinks strong.  Dinner was great too and was served in a spacious indoor room.  The ceilings were vaulted and the ocean view was still intact.  Everyone had a great time as we ended the night partying, dancing, and singing the night away.

Massage Stories – Maui, China, Bali

By |October 27th, 2010|

Maui, Hawaii, USA


We’ve been testing out massage parlors on Maui for years now.  Most are outrageously expensive (ex. at the big resorts.)  But we just found one that does incredible massages for a decent price.  Massage Maui in front of the Sugar Beach Resort is outstanding.

The location is great because it’s easily accessible for anyone on the south side (Makena, Wailea, Kihei), not more than 30-45 minutes from the West side (Lahaina, Kaanapali, Kapalua), and a short hop from the North side (Kahului, Wailuku, Paia.) […]
