"...Our ceremony was held on the beautiful Kokohead lawn overlooking the ocean, and our reception was held in the Waialae Ballroom with views of the waterfall. Both locations were perfect to accommodate our 85 guests. There were also many sites on the property for us to take pictures. We truly had the wedding of our dreams, and our guests had nothing but positive comments to say about the hotel and staff." ~ Charis & Travis, April 20, 2014
After the Ceremony
Enjoy a lazy Champagne breakfast in your room as you wake up to the view of the Pacific Ocean or Dolphin Lagoon. Then carry on the theme of relaxation with a wonderful room service day or enjoy a day of pampered relaxation with one of the many treatments on offer at our Spa.
But if you fancy something a little more active, the CHI Fitness Center has a state of the art facilities, while other sporting possibilities abound nearby. Or why not take the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim with dolphins in our private lagoon? Then sip early evening cocktails in the chic The Veranda. And end the day enjoying a candlelit dinner at Hoku's.
There's so much to see and do within a short distance of the hotel that a day at leisure is easily filled. Visit Iolani Palace, for example, America's only royal palace and a popular setting for film and TV shows like Hawaii Five-O. If you develop a taste for even more opulence, drop in to Shangri-la, the five-acre Black Point residence of heiress Doris Duke, festooned with artworks and architectural features from Iran, Syria, Morocco, Turkey and India.
And of course you're just a stroll from Waikiki Beach, one of the most famous people-watching beaches in the world, and the perfect place to try your hand at surfing or riding in an outrigger canoe. Then once you've worked up an appetite, return to the resort for dinner, watching the sunset over the ocean at Plumeria Beach House, and a room-service night-cap in your stunning room or suite.
