    Everything we could have asked for and more!

    Our wedding at the Marriott was exactly what we wanted. We communicated with Melanie for a full year before our wedding and she was incredibly professional and helpful, always providing quick, detailed responses to our questions and always available to talk if we needed to.

    This was a destination wedding for us and we went ahead with arranging a wedding at this location despite never having visited, which gave us obvious reservations - we never should have worried at all. Everything was perfect, the location was beautiful and Melanie had all the details taken care of. It was wonderful.

    Although it is pretty rare to rain, we did have rain on our wedding night and Melanie was quick to offer us an indoor alternative on the day. Even after we decided to just have fun in the rain instead, all the hotel staff continued to be lovely while having to work our wedding and getting wet. We were very happy we did it outside despite the rain, in fact it made for a very comfortable event in the heat.

    We would highly recommend this venue for your wedding, Melanie is very easy to work with and will do her best to accommodate your requests. We couldn't have been happier with the result.

    Overall Perfect Experience

    It was turn key, stress free, romantic and at a beautiful setting.
    Melanie Lucas and her team really know what they are doing. They made us feel special and relaxed. All you need to do is follow Melanie instructions and show up in your attire.
    I was an overall perfect experience.

King Kamehameha's Kona Beach hotel is a great venue that has multiple ceremony locations for your special day offering differing beautiful backdrops. Melanie who is the Wedding & Catering Sales Manager is great to work with and always attentive to each of her clients and their needs. Every wedding that I have photographed at the King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel has been a pleasure and I am proud to be on the list as a preferred vendor.

I can鈥檛 say enough wonderful things about my experiences working with Melanie and her amazing team at King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel. Melanie is so warm and welcoming, we instantly connected and It felt like we had known each other forever. Melanie has a perfect calm yet assertive personality that puts everyone at ease during the planning process right through to the actual wedding day. If you are looking for a great wedding planner and a wonderful venue in downtown Kona, I would absolutely recommend Melanie at the "King Kam".

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.
