If you're among those lovers intent on serenity, you can still find paradise
on Honeymoon Central. But you'll probably need to give up room and maid service
and venture beyond the famous beaches. Armed with suggestions from Frommer's
Maui author Jeanette Foster and others, USA TODAY's Laura Bly combed the island
for places that come closest to the grass-shack fantasy.
Opened two years ago,
this Bali-inspired five-room B&B in the sunny foothills of
the West Maui Mountains about a 10-minute drive south of Lahaina
provides a Zen-like escape from nearby Kaanapali's high-rises.
Turn-ons: The Kohola and
Nalu rooms have spectacular ocean views, and all five options include
sumptuous bathrooms, complete with private outdoor shower.
Turn-offs: There's a pool,
but no hot tub, kitchen facilities or in-room refrigerators.
Bottom line: All rooms,
$275-$295 a night including continental breakfast.
