Love, love, love this venue. After tons of searching for a beach location, we were lucky to stumble upon this gem in Kihei. You will fall in love and be in awe once you walk in. The whole staff is the best of the best! The food in incredible and one of the reasons we picked it. Catering is in house and fresh as can be. Our coordinator was amazing, professional, timely and answered to all our needs. Denise black is fabulous and knows her stuff! Check them out! It's a gorgeous venue!Sent on 09/13/2016

Perfect wedding venue
Take this from someone who has planned a lot of large-scale events in her career - Sugar Beach Events team is on another level in their professionalism, attentiveness, and execution mastery.Sent on 01/02/2019
We had an absolutely perfect wedding from top to bottom. SO many people kept asking if I was nervous or anxious throughout the wedding planning process and every time, my honest answer was "not at all." Kristen and Gabrielle were extremely responsive and followed up with us every step of the way to make sure we were on track with our side of the planning. The day-of coordination was on point. Kristen gave us honest and prompt feedback on all the vendors when we were going through all our options, and she was transparent about the pricing and offerings so we never had any doubts or fuzziness about the process and what we were paying.
The venue: it's a perfect setting for a wedding - so much better than a giant hotel/resort where you're being gawked at by hundreds of hotel guests and you're just one of thousands of guests the venue may be serving at any given moment. At Sugar Beach, YOU and your event are the ONLY thing the whole venue is focused on, and the setting makes for a perfectly intimate event just for you and your guests. The lawn and the beach frame the sunset perfectly for the most gorgeous photos. The amenities in the house - like the bridal suite, the upstairs balcony, even the bathrooms - make the day-of experience super seamless (you don't have to go back and forth between the salon, the dress, etc).
The food was excellent - there are so many options to choose from and they are all delicious. Again, having the entire kitchen and chef (CHEF LEE FOR THE WIN) dedicated to your wedding has so many advantages - in how flexible they are with the menu options and attentiveness to each individual guest's dietary restrictions. This was definitely a highlight that our guests raved about after the wedding.
Overall, I can't think of a single thing that was missing or lacking in the wedding - it truly was a wedding of our dreams and we are forever grateful for the Sugar Beach Events team for all their hard work to make it happen. MAHALO!!
One of my favorite venues on Maui, staff is great, Chef Lee's menu fabulous and you are on Maui, so you can't go wrong. I love bringing my Seattle clients to this venue for their Maui wedding!
We love working at Sugar Beach Events. It's a beautiful venue staffed by an incredible team of professionals. Chef Lee always makes everyone feel right at home!
Sugar Beach is an amazing venue, there is nothing else that has what it has. Always a pleasure to work with!
