About

On WeddingWire since 2024

The White Orchid Beach House is a boutique wedding and event venue located in beautiful Makena, Maui, Hawaii. For over three decades, A White Orchid Wedding has been specializing in bespoke island celebrations, providing couples with the opportunity to share their vows on pristine beaches and stunning estates. The White Orchid Beach House is located in the remote area of South Maui called and is one of their exclusive private premier properties.

We refer to the White Orchid Beach House as our “ island coastal retreat”. Nestled on a lovely beachfront cove in the remote area of Mākena, Maui, the Beach House is simply one of a kind. This exclusive boutique venue caters to intimate celebrations, accommodating up to 40 guests for weddings, vow renewals, engagements, corporate events, photo shoots, film productions, and, our sweet picnics beneath the swaying coconut trees.

While many are familiar with Oneloa (Big Beach) and the Pa'ako Cove (Secret Cove) in Mākena, we sit just a few doors south of these renowned spots. The Beach House is located a few miles south of the Wailea resort area.

The WOW Beach House, privately owned for over 65 years, is operated by A White Orchid Wedding, established in 1991, and offers the lovely nostalgic charm of ‘Old Hawai'i’ as it once was. This venue is one of the very first properties ever situated in this region. Offering pristine vistas of the sparkling blue Pacific Ocean, it boasts a stunning sandy beachfront—a rarity among venues. Mornings are glorious and sunsets are year-round followed by brilliant starry skies into the night. The house is fully furnished with a classic beach designed interior, furnished deck area, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a charming living space, and a kitchen ready to accommodate licensed caterers listed on our preferred vendor list.

Given its immense popularity, early reservations are strongly advised as space is limited.

Come, gather, and celebrate!

The Best Place, Could Not Recommend More!

The White Orchid Beach House is officially one of our favorite places on earth. Its ocean-front lawn surrounded by palm trees and an amazing view of Molokini provides different options for ceremonies, receptions, and other events. We love that it is a private escape that can accommodate intimate celebrations and medium sized gatherings. All of our guests absolutely loved the property and sunset was amazing!!! We are so lucky to have worked with such amazing vendors who truly made our big day special!
