Having a fabulous wedding doesn’t necessarily entail an extensive guest list and months of arrangements and preparations. Sometimes the most important thing is just sharing a special moment with your loved one, your family, and a few close friends in an intimate setting. If this sounds like your ideal wedding day, the Holualoa Inn may just be the place you’ve been dreaming of. Our secluded 30-acre estate is located on the verdant slopes of Mt. Hualalai on Hawaii’s Big Island, with sweeping ocean views and lush gardens of tropical flowers, coffee, and fruit trees. Our Malulani Pavilion has become a favored location for larger weddings for visitors and locals alike, but our estate has ample space and picturesque locations for smaller gathering as well. Some other locales on our property that would be ideally suited for a smaller wedding ceremony include:
Blue Jade Trellis
The Blue Jade Trellis is adorned with brilliant Blue Jade flowers and cloaked in greenery, creating a private alcove where you and your loved one can say your vows. The trellis is backed by terraced stone walls and fronted by a small lawn that is just the right size for a gathering of close family and friends.
The lawn just off of our Mauka Lanai is one of the most serene locations on our estate, and is aptly named the Buddha Garden. The juxtaposition of priceless Indonesian hardwoods and tropical greenery makes for striking photos, and the location between the Main House and a hillside of flowers, shrubs, and bamboo creates a secluded and intimate vibe.
The Nursery is unbeatable in its array of colors. The reds, oranges, yellows, and greens of the tropical foliage stand out in contrast to your wedding blacks and whites. The hillside rolls away behind the nursery, revealing the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean and an endless horizon that yields spectacular Kona sunsets and even an occasional, ephemeral green flash.
Any of these locales are available to our guests, and luxurious accommodations are available on site for the wedding couple, their friends and family. For the ultimate in intimacy and privacy, our estate is available for a Whole House Rental for weddings. With a Whole House Rental, you, your partner, and up to 14 guests will have exclusive access to the property and accommodations, the pool and the dining room for private breakfasts. With a Whole House Rental, you have the option to turn your wedding into a multi-day getaway to share with your loved ones.
