Our Big Island Wedding
We cannot thank LaRoma and Lani enough for making our wedding day so memorable and special! From day one they saw and understood our vision and did everything to make it happen. It was very easy, fun and enjoyable to work with Lani, LaRoma and the entire Mauna Kea team. Our wedding day was perfect in every way!Sent on 03/31/2019

Highly recommend this romantic getaway. My wife and I celebrated our 20 year anniversary and this serene setting provided just the backdrop we were looking for. If you are looking to get re-connected with a lover, look no further. Service was 2nd to none!Sent on 06/23/2014

How could you get married anywhere else? The Mauna Kea is an incredibly special resort and designed for events/weddings. It was magical. Piilani is great to work with and everything went off without a hitch! Yes, it's pricey for guests, so we offered room rates at both the MK and the nearby Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. I would definitely recommend the Mauna Kea!Sent on 08/13/2013
