DREAMY DAYS, STARRY NIGHTS
Hawai`i is considered one of the most romantic places on earth, and Waikoloa Beach Resort is no exception. The year-round 80-degree weather, temperate swimming waters, gentle trade winds, and swaying palm trees are the perfect spot for a destination wedding, and enough to tempt couples back year after year for their wedding anniversaries, special occasions and annual fun-in-the-sun vacations. At Waikoloa Beach Resort, Hawai`i’s natural attractions are enhanced with an unbeatable array of amenities ranging from golf to world-class dining to luxuriant spas to shopping for unique items from original artwork to tropical chic fashions.
“It is so easy to relax and reconnect with your loved one here at Waikoloa Beach Resort,” says Scott Head, Vice President of Resort Operations. “Guests can fill their days with shared activities such as bike riding, snorkeling and standup paddle boarding, or seek out secluded corners to quietly while away their time in paradise. Whether they are looking for the perfect romantic dinner or that special gift, guests to Waikoloa Beach Resort have unlimited choices and will easily find what they are looking for.”
Waikoloa Beach Resort has also proven to be an ideal spot for a destination wedding. At Hilton Waikoloa Village, for example, four outstanding wedding locations are available, including Hale Aloha, a Plantation-style chapel with ocean views and doors and windows that open up to let the warm breezes blow through. Koa wood furnishings and a lovely stained glass picture window add gracious Hawaiian touches to the ceremony. “Waikoloa is a very special place to have a wedding,” says Ms. Robin Paulos, Catering Manager at Hilton Waikoloa Village. “In addition to the amazing location, it is our goal to ensure that every aspect of your special day happens exactly as you dreamed it would. We will prepare your favorite dishes, serve your favorite libations ... you name it and we are at your service.”
At the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, guests can choose from a number of very attractive wedding packages, or create a completely customized event that speaks to their specific needs and desires. Included in every package are the basics: wedding site, minister, flower lei (a must in Hawai`i!), music, and upgraded accommodations for the bride and groom’s entire stay. Add-ons to wedding packages can include champagne, cake service, additional flowers, cheese platters, and a stay in the resort’s luxurious Cabana Suite on the wedding night.
Mr. Enoch A’ana of Pele’s Wedding & Events is the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa’s wedding and events partner. His passion to create the perfect wedding makes for very satisfied couples. “We’re excited about every element,” he says, “from the way the tables are set, to the moment you enter as bride and groom, to your final farewell.”
Lava Lava Beach Club can also provide an ideal destination for a worry-free dream wedding or honeymoon; a fun, beachfront venue to say “I Do,” then dine, drink, celebrate, and revel in the laidback luxury of one of four contemporary Hawaiian cottages while getting some sand between your toes!
Couples don’t have to be getting married to find the romance of Waikoloa Beach Resort. Depending on shared interests, anything from a late afternoon round of golf to a long sunset stroll on the beach followed by a candlelit dinner can make for a very romantic experience.
