My wife and I had our rehearsal dinner in the newly remodeled Sabal Palm room. It was perfect! We had a little communication trouble while they were in the midst of rehiring an event coordinator. However, once they did, Sarah was great! She made sure everything went as planned and was attentive the whole night. She even let my wifes cousin get carried away playing "DJ!" The food was simple BBQ food but was affordable and tasty as well. The room was elegant and the "traditional beach decorations" were perfect! Would definitely recommend Lani Kai and the Sabal Palm room!!!Sent on 07/18/2015

"I just had my wedding at Lani Kai on July 12 and it was the most special day of my life. I have Danielle Pierce to thank for all of that. She is absolutely amazing! I live in Chicago and had to put all my trust in her and she did an amazing job. The whole time I was confident and knew my wedding would be amazing. She is so passionate and lively. Instantly I knew I could trust her and it was so easy to talk to Danielle. My wedding was breathtaking. The planning was flawless and the set up was more then I could ask for. She was on top of everything and made me feel so special. I had the perfect wedding, not one complaint. If I could do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you Danielle and Lani Kai for making my wedding so special!! Also the new rooms are great! Loved 501! And stop by the new restaurant on the 6th floor, it was fantastic! Best lobster ravioli I have ever had! If you want a beach wedding go to Lani Kai. Danielle will take care of you and you will have the best wedding you could ever dream of!"Sent on 01/13/2015

great place for a beach wedding and fun and service is good.
Great vender and beautiful location. Their beach is privately owned and the ONLY privately owned beach on the Beach. The staff is great and they're prices are very reasonable. Danielle is such a professional and always knows how to handle her wedding parties needs! Wonderful group at the Lani Kai. I HIGHLY recommend using them for any beach wedding- small and simple just the 2 of us weddings, to exquisite 100's of guests. They do it all.
Lani Kai is a amazing location. The staff are so involved and really willing to help Brides. I have seen them work well past hours to make sure brides are happy. I would HIGHLY recommend Lani Kai. Danielle and Jaime are professional and AWESOME to work with.....
