Kona Kai is just amazing! I was hesitant to book our elopement with them because I'd never been in person but it was absolutely wonderful!

The resort itself is beautifully maintained with spectacular views. You basically vacation in the middle of a botanical garden - it's incredible. The pool is great and there's all kind of cool things to do scattered about (paddle boards, orchid garden, hammocks, gallery, kayaks, etc...).

The room was wonderful as well. It was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. The bed was cozy and the bathroom comfortable. We had an amazing view of the beach - it was perfect!

The staff are really what is so fantastic about Kona Kai! Every single person there clearly loves what they do and are so friendly and helpful! They were responsive to messages and questions, they were helpful for months leading up to our big day. On the wedding day they went so far above and beyond to make our day perfect. They set up decorations, they had lots of shells and other things to put out. They showed back vendors as they arrived and (not kidding) even helped my husband iron the wrinkles out of his linen suit!

Someone on staff even stayed way later so that they could surprise us with rose petals and champagne in our room. They decorated after we left for our dinner reservations!

I can't say enough good things about Kona Kai - they made our day amazing and we truly hope to return on our anniversary!

The Kona Kai was already our favorite vacation spot and we knew there was no other place for our very small, intimate ceremony. The staff of the Kona Kai went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding day was flawless and they made wedding planning pretty much stress free! Their wedding package that they offer was perfect and was exactly what we needed to piece together our wedding day. Highly recommend if you're looking to elope or have a very small 4-10 people ceremony.
