Intimate Big Island Weddings and Elopements in Paradise

If the idea of a grand wedding with a formal ceremony, elaborate reception, and endless guest list seems overwhelming, or simply isn’t your cup of tea, intimate Big island beach weddings and elopements at the Holualoa Inn offer a perfect balance of low-key elegance, intimacy, and convenience for couples looking to get married in paradise. We offer a pair of customizable Hawaiian elopement packages that are paired with stays at our scenic mountainside estate on the Big island, which means your honeymoon begins the moment you say “I do.”

Our classic elopement package, Nau Wale No (Just for You), includes a ceremony for two (plus up to four guests) at your choice of location on our beautifully manicured 30-acre property, which is situated on the verdant, rolling slopes of Hualalai mountain above the oceanside town of Kailua-Kona. Take in the sprawling 15-mile view of the Big Island’s Kona Coast as you share your vows on the Great Lawn of the Malulani Pavilion, or breathe deeply the saltBig Island Beach Wedding air of the makai breeze as you and your partner share the honi, or sacred breath, beneath our Blue Jade Garden during a Hawaiian wedding ceremony. From the initial arrangements to the day of your elopement, our expert staff will be on hand to provide you as much or as little coordination assistance as you desire, and to ensure that your experience is as romantic and stress-free as possible. Nau Wale No also includes a two-night (or more) stay at the award-winning Holualoa Inn, where you will be pampered by our staff and served fresh breakfasts made from locally-sourced ingredients along with 100% estate Kona Coffee, all while basking in the tranquility of our mountainside estate.
