    Destination Wedding

    Kona Kai resort was the best location for our destination wedding. It truly is a “hidden gem” and is located near the marina in San Diego and downtown area but away from traffic. The airport was about 15-20 minutes away. The views are amazing and had the perfect scenery for all our wedding photography. My husband and I are from the Bay Area and decided to choose this beautiful resort because of their amazing staff. We were greeted by really nice and professional bellmen, every time we entered the resort. From our coordinator Lisa Fleming, banquet staff, restaurant chefs, and to Vania and Sean at the front desk- EVERYONE was super friendly, very helpful in accommodating whatever we requested and made sure we all had the perfect stay. The majority of our family members and guests at our wedding stayed here for convenience also for our wedding reception and could not stop raving about the Kona Kai team and cleanliness of the resort. There were so many things to do, like hitting up the pools and gym, the spa, eating at their amazing restaurant with an awesome view and live music, the s’mores at their private beach and the walk to the marina- everyone felt like they were truly “on vacation”. The setup of the room buildings all had different but amazing hotel views of the boats on the marina. The hotel rooms were a good size for our guests and also loved that they had hardwood floors instead of carpet. They were very generous in upgrading our rooms since we got married there. It was absolutely perfect and we couldn’t have asked for more! We noticed some pets also so I believe they are a pet friendly resort. If you are planning to choose a location for your wedding, we highly recommend Kona Kai! They have so many options and are open to work with your budget. Thank you Kona Kai team!!! We cannot wait to visit again soon!
