Amazing venue. You do not have to do anything to make sure you have a gorgeous wedding at this location. Only down side is that you have to bring in all of your own items, so you definitely need the assistance of a coordinator to ensure everything comes together. It is worth it!

The venue was absolutely amazing! Words cannot express how beautiful everything came together. The lush greenery, the stunning trees and private beach make this venue a total gem. We are so happy that we went with Lanikuhonua Phase II despite it being located quite a ways out from Waikiki (perhaps a 40 minute car ride) and the somewhat hefty price tag but all in all, it was definitely worth it. All correspondence was handled promptly and courteously as well.

What a beautiful place to get married. I was in a wedding here for one of my friends back in 2005. Then my best friend got married here in 2012, and finally it was my turn! There are two phases and we got married on Phase II. There was a wedding going on at the same time at Phase I, but we did not hear anything so if you are getting married and hear the other side also got booked there really is nothing to worry about (each phase also has it's own parking lot and entrance). The best part for me with booking this site was I had the ability to bring in all my own vendors. Because of this you do need a wedding coordinator to book the site since there is so much that has to be coordinator between different parties as opposed to having a wedding a hotel where a lot is already taken care of for you. But I loved that I was able to customize our wedding exactly how we wanted it.

Such a beautiful venue! EVERY person I spoke with planning this wedding said how amazing this place was and they were absolutely right. I was a bit worried having not seen the venue and picking it online from pictures, but when my fiancée and I were finally able to visit, my jaw dropped. The pictures don't do it justice. Hoku was very helpful and super friendly in booking this site and I was very happy with everything. Even with another wedding going on the same time as us....we didn't see or hear anyone. It was very private but easy to get to. This site was more than I could've asked for.

If you are looking for a beautiful, outdoor wedding space, Lanikuhonua is it! Lanikunohua is big, private and gorgeous. It has amazing ocean front views and the sunset is to die for. And none of your guests will complain about having to stay in Ko Olina; it's a great resort away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The property management has been going through a couple changes, which is always a little rough, but there were no real issues and I think its all sorted out now. Get married here!!

We just got married at Lanikuhonua this past summer. We love this location and will forever have fond memories. The property was very clean and well maintained for our guest. However, they were not that flexible with scheduling a time to iniitially see the location, nor were they flexible with accomodating us for our wedding rehearsal. Another thing i would like to point out is that my wedding coordinator called to see if they could have the tent set up about an hour earlier due to the wedding being on the larger scale, and of course, you can't set up anything else without the tent going up first. They were not flexible and did not accomodate her request so i was told it was a little hectic that morning. Luckily i was in my room getting ready!

There is absolutely no other place in the world I would ever have dreamt of having our wedding then at lanikuhonua! It is 1 million per cent where heaven meets the earth. The surrounds are breath taking.. We where so sad when it ended.. All the staff there are so friendly and loving. The warmest group of people. So lovely! Amazing place... 100% there is no other choice for your Hawaiian wedding!

Lanikuhonua is a blank canvas for you to design however you please. i loved the ceremony on the beach/cove area and the reception on the lawn. its a little pricier than other places considering you dont get the party rentals included but its a beautiful back drop for it all. The only issue i had with the service of it, was that we were originally told they were available the original date of 9.1.12 and when we went to book, we were informed that there was a mix up and the date wasnt available to begin with so we should have never been told that it was. Because f this we had to switch our date to one day later (which really wasnt a issue), but still was a let down. zGreat out door venue non the less.

I did my research before I got engaged and with all the good things I read online, I thought that this could be the place where I wanted to get married. Was I right! I went to Hawaii about 10 months before the wedding AFTER I booked Lanikuhonua - 14 months to the day in advance - and it was worth the long wait! I love the site from first sight. This piece of land is in the most gorgeous spot, right on the ocean. I used Phase II and it was just perfect. The only drawback to this place is that you have to book it so far in advance, it made for a long engagement. But again...SO worth it. Just gorgeous with the most amazing sunset!!!!

We got married at Lanikuhonua in January, 2012. We are from Canada so we never had seen the place prior to our wedding day. We were Blown away by how beautiful it is!! It's quiet, isolated, and GORGEOUS! The only draw back is you have to bring in absolutely every vendor, so I Definitely recommend hiring a wedding coordinator. I would not have been able to plan our wedding there without one! It isn't the cheapest place to get married at, costs do definitely add up, but it is so worth it! We can't imagine getting married anywhere else! It was everything we had ever dreamed of but better!! We were told that Lanikuhonua is a usually a fairly "dry" place to get married, unfortunately during our reception we got a 20 min. "hawaiian blessing"- strong winds and rain. We all got a little wet, but thankfully we had rented a tent! Although I'm told that kind of rain was very rare for this venue, I don't know if I'd ever risk having a wedding there without a tent. It would not have been fun! haha. Do I recommend this venue? WITHOUT A DOUBT!!!!
