What a dream it is to get married in Hawaii AND to get married at one of the most prestigious hotels on Oahu~! To be honest, I didn't even visit the venue before we booked it - it's so highly regarded and recommended that I felt totally comfortable just going for it :) Planning a wedding from Seattle, I wanted to make sure that I had a team of vendors that I could trust that would make my life easier and THAT was definitely the Halekulani.

Some details - we had 150 guests, opted for the nicer buffet, and had our ceremony in the garden courtyard and the reception in the ballroom. All of our guests were impressed with the 5-star service, and everyone was looking forward to the food. Just an FYI - their buffet is not necessarily the "cheaper" choice...it's actually more expensive than manyof their plated meals, so we were actually upgrading to the nicer of the two offered buffets). For our chafing dishes, we chose the steamed onaga (a signature dish), london broil, and the seafood curry (with scallops and sea bass - THIS was the surprise hit of the evening. I would have never imagined serving curry at a wedding, but it was just so flavorful and delicious that I had to go for it and everyone thanked me for that~!). We also had the prime rib as another main dish. The salads, appetizers, and desserts are to die for....the poke is DELISH, and the bread pudding..WOW...WOW..WOW~! SO GOOD!!

Though the Halekulani is a more expensive venue, if it's important to you to have top-knotch service, excellent communication, and impeccable execution of details - then I would highly recommend Halekulani. It's actually more affordable than I thought, so make sure you at least check it out!! I felt Loren went above and beyond for us, and we were exceptionally pleased every step of the way~! Every detail at Halekulani is just so impressive...my heart was full of appreciation~!!!

We were SO pleased with halekulani!! Joel, the catering director was amazing!! He sat down with us about a mobtbe before the wedding to make sure everything would run smoothly. On the day of john, the banquet captain was pretty much at our beck and call!! He made sure we were being fed and was constantly bringing us ice cold water to sip on during down times . Words cannot express the deep gratitude we feel.

If you're contemplating halekulani, just do ir!! It's so worth it! The staff is incredible!!! You have my word that you won't regret o!!

There is no other place I could recommend with absolute confidence. Halekulani provided exceptional service to us on all levels. Their wedding menus may be a little higher than other venues, but once you sit down and look at the extra inclusions they provide, it really is worth it. I can't put into words how amazing our whole experience has been. You will not be disappointed! A+++ for a wedding venue. The Hau Terrace was a great choice for us for our ceremony & reception for 100 pax. Perfection on all fronts. Recommend without hesitation.

Planning a destination wedding is extremely daunting - especially when you have to do everything online and cannot see things (like the venue) for yourself before picking it. I chose the Halekulani based on photos on their website and reviews - and I am so glad I did. We had 60 people at our wedding and had both our ceremony and reception at the Hau Terrace. I wanted an indoor/outdoor venue and the Hau Terrace was perfect for that. Leading up to the wedding, Tom and his team were super helpful and very responsive to emails. On the day of the wedding itself, their banquet captain John, took care of everything.. and I mean EVERYTHING. He went over and beyond our expectations.. he made sure all the guests were okay during cocktail hour, then he would check on us (bride/groom) as we were having our photos taken at the beach. He even brought us food and provided us with towels and slippers so we could clean ourselves off after the beach photos. During the reception, he was constantly checking with us to see if we were okay, had enough food, drinks. Couldn't say enough good things about this venue. You will not regret choosing the Halekulani!

Wow, that's really all there is to say about the Halekulani. The service is impeccable and the staff just amazing. If you are considering Honolulu for a destination wedding this is the spot especially the Hau Terrace location for any wedding of 80 or less guests you get a great location with Diamond Head and the ocean as your backdrop for your ceremony. The Hau Terrace room is beautiful with large folding glass doors that open up the space. We had a sit down dinner of filet mignon and Maine lobster tail that was simply delicious with a beautiful presentation. My brother is a chef and he could not believe the flavorfulness and tenderness of all of the courses. We also had their signature haupia cake for our wedding cake and again everyone commented on how it was the best cake they had ever had at a wedding. If you spend just $6,000 for your food ( not hard to do) you get the terrace for your ceremony for free ($1,800 otherwise) and a beautiful suite for your wedding night with champagne and delicious chocolate dipped strawberries.

What a magical experience we had at Halekulani!

My husband and I married in March 2016, and we decided to have a destination wedding because our guests would be coming from all over the world. Hawaii was a great central point for everyone, but for us, living in New York, planning required a bit more effort than a local wedding.

We weren't sure how often we'd get to visit Hawaii before the big day, so we looked for venues with great reviews and amazing staff, knowing that we'd be in good hands even if we'd only visit once before.

After looking through Halekulani's website, reviews, and speaking with the staff there, we felt 100% confident that our wedding would be wonderful. We chose to have our ceremony on the Hau Terrace, with the reception in the adjoining room. We did get to visit before the big day, and when we walked into the space, I got teary. We never imagined we'd get married in such a dreamy place!

The staff at Halekulani was incredible helpful, answering all of our many questions via email, and meeting with us in person when we were on the island. In the middle of our planning process, there was a change in personnel and at first we were nervous that some of the planning would be lost, that didn't happen at all. Tom stepped in without a hiccup and made sure every detail was covered. And the staff was so accommodating with all of our DYI plans!

On the day of our wedding, we were walking on clouds. The space looked amazing, the staff was so helpful, our hotel room opened out to overlook the ocean and was the most luxurious room we've ever stayed in. We even booked a second night because we wanted to enjoy it longer! There is so much to say about being at Halekulani, but the most important is "don't hesitate". Every penny is worth it, and your wedding day will be so much more enjoyable in the hands of people that know exactly what they are doing!

We had our wedding reception at the Hau Terrace. Gorgeous ocean and diamond head view, delicious food, all staff from the valet to servers went above and beyond! Despite a 5 hour time difference in Iowa, Joel was always available and prompt in answering my questions. Even with the volume limit, music was perfect for dancing! Couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect venue for our reception! Pleasure to work with and highly recommended!

From the day we heard about Halekulani, till the end, we were absolutely amazed by the hotel itself, the food, and especially staff. We were greeted everywhere and helped in anyway possible. Me and my wife had our wedding at Hau Terrace. Upon our first visit, we met Loren Petrowski and saw the venue, we were taken away from the sights and view they had to offer. Loren was able to answer any questions we had in a timing manner and suggest things that would work within our budget and guest preferences. We can't say enough good things about them. Keep up the great work and we will be sure to come back and visit. Those who are thinking about coming here don't need to worry about a thing when these people are looking after you. Thank you so much!!!!

Halekulani was hands down the best decision for our wedding day. From the first emails, they made me feel so special and really set my mind at ease with how organized and professional they are. Their level of service is really unmatched. My catering manager, Tom, was amazing. I'e sure he does this for every couple he works with, but I really felt like I was getting star treatment from him. He answered my emails very quickly (I made many) and really went above and beyond to make us happy. I always knew I was in good hands with them. The hotel is just so beautiful, considering it is in Waikiki; it makes from amazing wedding photos. Our ceremony and reception site, the Hau Terrace, was perfect for creating an intimate and picturesque setting. The food was amazing! Our friends and family are still talking about it! They also did our cake, which they customized a little for us and it came out absolutely amazing and delicious. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone getting married.
