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~!!!

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.

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.

Halekulani is by far the most beautiful hotel on the island of Oahu. The bridal party prepared for the wedding in a Diamond Head Suite with a picture perfect view and the men got ready in a Jr. Suite. Both rooms were amazing and perfect for wedding prep picture taking. All of my wedding guest loved the ceremony set up and could not stop talking about how amazing the food tasted to include the cake! I'm so happy we chose to get married there.

We got married on the Waimanalo beach and it was just the 2 of us. We wanted to make sure that our dinner was going to be a very special evening. Even though it was just the two of us Ku'ulei Lipton from the Halekulani Hotel was very responsive months in advanced by making sure we had a special table. When the limo dropped us off after the ceremony there was a table with an amazing view of the ocean with rose petals all over the table. This was so special and amazing! Thank You Ku'ukei!
