Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Ceremonies can take place on the famous Mauna Kea Golf Course high on an ancient lava bluff among coconut palms and sculpted fairways, on a beachside lawn, in their lush luau grounds, at the Manta Ray Lookout, and many more places!
  • The newly opened Kauna’oa Ballroom bumps up the “wow” factor, with dramatic, circular light fixtures and floor-to-ceiling windows framing unforgettable views of the Big Island’s famous sunsets.
  • Their “Romance Specialists” will help you choreograph your wedding from start to finish, and a selection of three generous packages help eliminate the hassles of long-distance planning.
