Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

5 Reasons Royal Sonesta Kauai Resort is perfect for a destination wedding on the Garden Isle:

1. You can add a lovely Hawaiian touch to tying the knot: While saying your vows, exchange fresh floral leis in a traditional lei ceremony. The flowers can be added to your wedding package along with many other island-inspired options, like an authentic Hawaiian chanter announcing the bridal processional.
2. The resort’s gardens are sublime settings for greeting guests: Tiki torches around the manicured grounds and a variety of fresh Island flowers welcome wedding guests to this tropical paradise.
3. Duke’s Kauai, the resort’s long-standing landmark restaurant, is a wonderful place to host a relaxing rehearsal dinner. Established in honor of legendary surfer Duke Kahanamoku, this beachfront property catches the ocean breezes coming from Nawiliwili Bay and the Pacific. Friends and family will enjoy kicking back while dining on generations-old Hawaiian recipes.
4. Going glamorous here is easy! The day spa stylists specialize in bridal hair and make-up, and offer a trial run to make sure you’re pleased with your wedding-day look. The pampering takes place in the spa or in your room.
5. Complimentary shuttle service to and from the Lihue Airport means your brother doesn’t have to chauffeur guests flying in to celebrate your big day. He can babysit the ring-bearer instead!
