    Went above and beyond our expectations.

    The romance team at Royal Kona went above and beyond to make our wedding day truly special. They are easy to work with, have some creative ideas, and their attention to details & our special requests made for a great experience. Combine that with the most incredible backdrop for our ceremony and reception, our wedding at The Royal Kona Resort was everything we wanted and much more.

    Wedding that all your guests will keep bringing up

    I explored the island for 2 weeks and did not found any other wedding venues that’s as romantic and beautiful as Royal Kona for the price. Coming from design background from NYC, I had lots of visual requests and all of them were met 100%. Everyone at Royal Kona were easy to work with and they were happy to change things around to meet my requests. They only focused on making my day perfect. We had a very small wedding due to Covid. Some of the family members were against small weddings, but our wedding at Royal Kona completed changed their view of small weddings. At all my get-togethers, our wedding is always a hot topic to talk about, and I’m consistently hearing from different people that they have not been to a perfect wedding like this in the past.

    I don’t need to talk about their details and professionalism because you will experience it yourself. The only tips I can give to the future wedding couples are
    1) upgrade your meal to Hawaiian Buffet Menu for a small $ more per person. The standard is too ‘standard’, but their Hawaiian buffet menu is delicious and something your guests can only experience in Hawaii. We even mix-matched the two options from Hawaii buffet options (we’re big on food!)
    2) extra lighting is definitely worth the cost. It’s costly but you will be amazed by the ambience it provides in real life and in photos.
    3) Typically the sunset is during the cocktail hour. We moved our start time 1 hr early to have the sun setting in the background during the dinner. All our guests enjoyed every moment of their dinner time. The wedding couple will have to sacrifice their dinner to go out for sunset photos. You won’t feel hungry from all the excitements anyways.
    4) be creative and add things in. I requested white runway carpet which Royal Kona couldn't provide, but they let me order it from Amazon and deliver directly to them! I also requested extra chairs to make the ceremony visually fuller.

    Royal Kona will help you in any ways to make your wedding perfect for you. Everyone there is so friendly and supportive. And the price is just amazing!
