My mom and dad's 35th wedding anniversary is Oct 7, 2012. My mom has always dreamed of going to Hawaii and my dad had promised to take her; however, it's not currently within their means. I would love to book a trip for them as a present using my points/miles. Based on their work schedules, I'm looking at 7-10 nights beginning on 10/07/2012. I'm in very early planning stages, but would appreciate any suggestions. Having never been to Hawaii, I barely know where to start. Selection of Islands -- I'm debating Oahu v. Maui v. Kauai. I'm looking for something romantic, laid-back, luxurious. They are not very athletic/active so nothing in the way of extreme sports. But beautiful (and preferably less crowded) beaches, snorkeling, a nice pool, good restaurants. My current points situation: UA: 195,000 DL: 60,000 Marriott: 150,000 Hilton: 140,000 I just took a new job where I'm traveling quite a bit for work and have the flexibility to pick my alliances, so I could concentrate on a specific hotel program if there is one with better options in Hawaii.
