There’s nothing more romantic, heart-stopping, or visually-striking than a Hawaii beach wedding amid swaying palms, lapping waves, and warm sand. The Island of Hawaii is arguably the most biodiverse destination in the world as it’s home to a live volcano, tropical rainforests, arid deserts, and many more thriving landscapes. And no oceanfront locale rivals Mauna Kea Beach Hotel’s prime real estate located on the sunny shores of Kaunaʻoa Bay. Our award-winning Autograph Collection Hotel has several awe-inspiring ceremony locations, including perched atop a lava bluff, a secluded outcropping overlooking Kauna’oa Bay and if your lucky the legendary Mauna Kea manta rays, and an authentic luau grounds.
