We chose The Moana Surfrider for our wedding because of the spectacular lawn and terrace that allowed our guests to see the ocean but not a lot of people were peering in watching our wedding, the ease of our guests getting there from almost anywhere in Waikiki and the beautiful plantation style and history of the hotel. It did not disappoint. Everyone we dealt with from start to finish was professional, accommodating and friendly. Bill and his team made this event absolutely perfect for us. No details were left out, they catered to all of our needs and made our day stress-free and fun. Justin and I can't say enough about the job everyone did for this special event. The banquet staff was exceptional and friendly-Mana the bartender was a riot! Everyone is still talking about our wedding and it's all thanks to the wonderful team at the MS for making it possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

After our ceremony, we had cocktail hour on the Diamond Lawn before sunset, and followed that with the formal reception in the Ballroom. The venues were absolutely amazing! Diamond Lawn is a beautiful outdoor area with sea views and a lovely spot to watch the sunset. The Ballroom (half) catered for approx. 50 guests.
Most of my correspondence in the lead up was with Toni Takata who was really lovely to deal with, and was very accommodating.
All the staff during the day and night (catering and service) were really personable, all our guests and my husband and I sang their praises.
We had canapés during our cocktail hour, and a full 4-course menu at the reception which was all delicious, and very good value for money compared to Australian prices.

I chose the Moana Surfrider (Diamond Lawn and Terrace) for my wedding venue and it was beyond beautiful!

I mainly worked with Toni Takata on the details of my event and she made everything go smoothly especially knowing that I was planning the wedding from California. She definitely knows her stuff and made some great suggestions regarding the decorations, food menu and open bar. She also followed up with me immediately after our event to make sure everything went well.

The service staff during the ceremony/reception were TOP NOTCH! I received so many compliments from my guests. Mostly around how friendly the staff was and how the staff knew what they wanted before they had a chance to ask for it! Miraculously, their water glasses were filled, baskets of bread appeared and my other details! For me personally, it FELT as though I had a personal staff member tending to my every need (i.e. water, a wet cloth to cool down waiting for me as I stepped off the dance floor, etc). Amazing attention to detail! They also brought 2 complete meals to our Suite immediately following the reception (even though I had already eaten during the reception). :-)

I decided to order our wedding cake from the Moana as well and it was not only beautiful it was delicious!

Our honeymoon tower ocean suite was impeccable! It was as though we were literally ON TOP of the ocean when we were at our balcony. It was spacious with all the amenities one could think of.

I highly recommend Moana Surfider if you are looking for a historic and beautiful venue for your wedding!

We had our reception in the Lani Kai room at the Moana this past month. The staff at the Moana was extremely helpful in making sure we had a fantastic experience. Toni and her team answered all of our questions and guided us through the process of planning our dinner party. The night itself turned out wonderfully and we were very pleased with the staff's service at the bar and throughout the buffet dinner.

We had both our ceremony and reception at the Moana Surfrider. The ceremony took place on the Diamond Lawn, while the reception took place in the Lani Kai room. The staff, especially Toni, were extremely helpful and efficient in helping to plan our wedding. The food was fantastic at both the cocktail reception and dinner, people are still raving about it! I definitely recommend the Moana Surfrider to others looking at venues in the heart of Waikiki.

Chose the Moana Surfrider for our reception. We had beautiful shots both around the hotel and in the Lanikai Room. The catering office (Toni) and service staff were excellent and I will definitely recommend them to anyone I know who wishes to get married in Oahu.
