    Royal Kona wedding

    Unfortunately due to the covid 19 virus we are unable to stay at the Royal Kona this July and have our wedding as planned. However, I am giving this rating for Maggie Sneyd in the wedding department. We were planning a wedding for this July and have been back and forth thru this process changing our estimate and adding and deleting things multiple times. This was due to the unexpected virus we were faced with unexpectedly. Maggie was very hospitable and helped us work thru every step of this process. She was very accommodating with all of our requests. When things are clear we would definitely love to work with her again. She was amazing!

    Magical Night in Times of Uncertainty

    Planning a wedding in a pandemic was difficult! Royal Kona Resort was able to pull through and gave us the perfect reception dinner for an intimate wedding / elopement. We loved the venue, setup, private chef, food & drinks and overall the service provided to us! It will always be a magical memorable night.
