Celebrate your wedding at one of the world’s most romantic getaways.

Weddings & Celebrations

The Kahala Hotel & Resort has through the years garnered recognition as a romantic resort. It is included in Travel Channel’s Best Destination Wedding Hotels.  So, not surprisingly, we like to think of ourselves as experts when it comes to weddings.

With every one of them, we aim to ensure every moment – before, during and after your special day - is a memorable one. The Kahala Hotel & Resort's wedding packages promise a tailor-made experience for the bride and groom on their big day, whether plans are made last minute or years in advance.

We offer two main wedding locations, each with the Pacific Ocean as a romantic backdrop. Throughout the hotel, you’ll find a variety of venues for photo opportunities, such as our colorful orchid wall featuring a large selection of different orchid blooms, or our  cascading waterfall for a truly unique photo memory.

And if your wedding is already planned to take place elsewhere, The Kahala Hotel & Resort is the perfect destination for your honeymoon.

Before

Relax as we do the work for you. The secret of a memorable and successful event is in the planning. From flower arrangements to entertainment, coordinated linen to personalized place cards, our experienced and dedicated staff offers uncompromising levels of personal service and attention to detail.

And while we do all the hard work, you and your guests can pamper yourself in our award winning Kahala Spa. It offers dozens of blissful treatments in a tranquil, plantation style setting. Or you can have a close encounter of the flippered kind with our family of resident Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins in the resort’s private lagoon. Or just enjoy a relaxing day on our sun-drenched white sand beach.

The Kahala Hotel & Resort’s beautiful oceanfront location is stunning and very Hawaiian. Add our renowned service and you’ll have the wedding of your dreams. Make the preparation for your big day simple by choosing from one of our  varied Wedding Packages.

Our ceremonial offerings let you choose the setting, while we provide 338 guestrooms and suites and nearly 13,000 square feet of banquet space for receptions of up to 300 people for you to pick as well.

"As perfect as we wanted & had planned"

We found all staff very supportive & willing to help in the lead up to our wedding. In one meeting she had it all sorted, helped us contact our different vendors & took all our worries away.

A wonderful week's vacation

We stayed at the Kahala Hotel from May 13 to May 2013, celebrating our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. Our room, an Ocean View Lanai, was in the Diamond Head Wing on the ninth floor. It was very tastefully furnished with a very comfortable bed, and quiet, both inside and while sitting on the lanai. Housekeeping was efficient and included an evening turn down service that one would expect at this quality of hotel. All the staff we came into contact with in the restaurants, front desk, concierge, poolside were very friendly and addressed us by name. The Kahala is a luxury hotel and the prices there reflect this fact, however they are what anyone staying at this quality of hotel should expect. If you are looking for a relatively quiet vacation as opposed to Waikiki then the Kahala is the spot.

After

The big day is just the beginning. Sumptuous surroundings. Breathtaking views of the mountains and the ocean. Chilled champagne. End your perfect day in perfect surroundings in one of our luxurious suites.

Enjoy your first breakfast as Mr and Mrs in the privacy of your own suite. Then spend the day at the beach, take a stroll around the shops or swim with dolphins in our private lagoon.  Indulge in afternoon tea at The Veranda, or save yourself for an exquisite dinner at Hoku’s, our award-winning restaurant. After all, you do have something to celebrate.

Plan ahead. Why not reserve the same suite for your first anniversary?
