Renewed our wedding vows. We were married on the Big Island 19 years ago.

Melanie & the King Kamehameha crew made our vow renewals so special. We were married on the Big Island 19 years ago & it seemed like the perfect time to refresh our commitment. This time our 11 year old daughter was with us as part of our ceremony. She will remember it for the rest of her life. They went above and beyond to make our ceremony special on this beautiful island. We are grateful & thankful. 鉂わ笍

The breakfast following the ceremony was perfect! Everyone raved about the food. We can鈥檛 thank Melanie and the staff for making it a perfect day!

Our experience was fantastic!


Our experience was fantastic! The vision we had planned for our wedding was displayed according to plan. Melanie made sure she had created a software floor plan of the venue for us to look and edit afterwards. She She was just one call and text away when we have questions. She showed us a lot of food options for the buffet. The foods were so good and delicious especially healthy too!

The venue was lovely! It enraptured the whole island beauty that we just laid plain decorations only. Aside from that, it鈥檚 spacious! We need not worry about the traffic of the people coming in especially we need to keep social distancing for our safety. Everybody felt safe while enjoying the event.

During the wedding , all the staffs are friendly and approachable. Melanie called me in the morning to check the weather and told me beforehand that it might drizzle in the afternoon. I was worried it might rain the entire time of the event that we might have to move all the stuffs inside the hotel. But, it didn鈥檛 rain! Thank you God! It was just cloudy and not hot outside. Perfect, cause we didn鈥檛 provide a tent. 馃グ There was drizzle after the event which is such a blessing! 馃檹馃徏

Thank you melanie and the KingKam staffs for the help that you do. The Mai Tai was so good that my bridal party had a good time. 馃槀 We had fun partying! Felt so nice to celebrate our wedding with family and friends. We will cherish the lovely memory of our wedding until we grow old. 馃グ鉂わ笍


Mahalo!

Our company has a 10+ year history of working at King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel. There is no way to completely express the honor and privilege of performing at a location with such historical and spiritual significance. The majesty of the views and chicken skin of the mana never ceases to captivate our team when we arrive for an event. In addition, the aloha and kokua we find working with hotel's long-standing, dedicated employees make every experience a pleasure. And all of this is the behind-the-scenes vendor experience. We could write all day long about all they offer to their guests and clients. However the countless positive reviews online will well cover all of that territory.
