Hotel Wailea, Relais & Châteaux


This intimate 5-star Maui resort is set within the most exclusive properties on Maui, Hotel Wailea has an impressive 180-degree, unobstructed views of sweeping sapphire oceans dotted with neighboring Hawaiian Islands. The breathtaking mountain scenery, and 15 acres of Zen-inspired landscaped grounds with a rich collection of tropical foliage and colorful flowers will be the perfect backdrop to your luxury Maui wedding. The sounds of cascading waterfalls and winding pathways will surely transport you to your island paradise. The only upscale adults-only resort in Hawaii, this peaceful retreat is nestled within a lush green hillside perched 300 feet above the Pacific ocean. The access to island adventures by day – from beaches, water sports, golf to some of the best Maui restaurants around. You can even rent a ’57 Porsche 356 Speedster for your wedding portraits! The luxurious tranquility by night will surely make you feel like a queen on your destination wedding dream.The tasteful 72 suites on the entire 15 acres of ocean view property offer luxury with a secluded feel. I definitely recommend checking your wedding date right away because this gem on Maui is very popular. For the fashionable couple that wants all the style and luxury of a resort setting will appreciate this venue for your Maui Wedding dreams. This epic wedding venue features a grand Anuhea Ballroom, with gorgeous cathedral ceilings, rich hardwood floors and soaring windowed walls that will make you feel like you are in the ballroom from Beauty and the Beast, haha!. You can have your stylish wedding surrounded by cascading waterfalls on one side and dramatic sunset views across the ocean on the other. What can be better than that!



THE BOHO-CHIC BRIDE THAT WANTS A STYLISH DREAMY OUTDOOR AFFAIR

Lumeria Maui


You will not be disappointed with this Maui Wedding venue for your bohemian style dream wedding. Lumeria Maui is a hidden gem with stunning landscapes and secluded location. When you walk through this beautifully unique six-acre property on the North shore of Maui you will feel like you stepped into a tropical Eden. This wonderful retreat consists of five historic lodge-style buildings connected by a continuous, covered lanai. Lumeria Maui has twenty-five guest rooms and suites with sweeping island, ocean and mountain landscapes. The historic building is surrounded by indigenous tropical and edible organic gardens which are used in their farm-to-table catering options. A resident chef plans the meals for your special day featuring the produce grown on the property. The well designed communal areas and meditation gardens are unique aspects of this property including a labyrinth at their outdoor lawn Yes you read that right, a labyrinth! Haha! What fun details for any bride wanting out of the ordinary details. Take a relaxing dip in their saltwater pool and Jacuzzi during your destination wedding vacay and all the stresses of the wedding day will just float away. You can be embraced by the beauty and the magic that is Maui in this award-winning, 1910 restored historic compound. Lumeria Maui has been created as a sanctuary in harmony with nature, for an authentic, educational and transformational travel experience. The property is technically an educational retreat center catering to those seeking experiential learning, personal growth and well-being in a peaceful setting, but they offer buyouts of their property for weddings of up 150 guests. You must rent out the whole property, they do not offer ceremony only packages. When you honor the natural beauty of upcountry Maui you will not be disappointed by this Maui wedding venue. The seclusion of this place alone will be worth taking a look at.

Nona Lani Maui


The charming beauty vintage Hawaii is very present on the grounds of the Nona Lani Cottages. Tucked away on the south shores of majestic Maui, the eight cozy Nona Loni Cottages are situated on more than two acres of true Maui tropical foliage with well designed landscaped grounds. A golden hued sunset with swaying coconut palms, fragrant flower plants, and tropical fruit trees can be the backdrop of your Maui Wedding and you will want to capture every detail with a great photographer that loves nature as much as you do!. You can exchange your vows in the Pua Melia Plumeria Gardens, among the spectacular aromas of pink, orange & yellow plumerias. Enjoy a laid back happy hour, dinner, and dancing under the stars in the Makahiki Event Hale. This place makes it easy to achieve those epic cotton candy sunset wedding portraits that you can hang in your home with pride and joy:) Kong beach is right across the street from the property for your ocean therapy fix. The Nona Lani Cottages is the perfect intimate venue for couples seeking small tasteful wedding with a touch of Hawaiian elegance. Nona Lani can hold weddings up to 75 of your friends and family. If you are planning a Maui wedding, and prefer the accessibility of cozy accommodations and a wedding venue all on one property, the Nona Lani Cottages will be the right fit for your wedding day. These well built cottages were designed to replicate the vintage plantation style homes of old Hawaii, offering an authentic Hawaiian experience with all the modern comforts. A unique aspect of this Maui Wedding venue is for an additional per person fee you can bring your own alcohol, which is big plus for those DIY brides that want to curate a great cocktail menu.
