  • I believe Kalahari has changed the way they price their wedding packages since we signed with them so some mentions of packages or value may not be accurate. I have no regrets with choosing them. Yes, they are a little more expensive than some other “budget” venues but it’s absolutely worth it to not have to worry about much. When we compared them to other venues based on what was included and what was not, it was only a couple thousand more but also required less set up and work on our part. Pros: The little things really meant a lot to us because we kept making a mental list of things we wanted for our day as we would go to events or other weddings. Clean spacious bathrooms-Check. Plenty of parking-Check. Hotel on-site—Check. You get a lot of benefits of using such a large venue that you may overlook elsewhere. Food: Delicious and diverse options. I do feel that the food at the tasting was better than that which was served the day of the wedding (more so than I exp... Read more

  • We got married this past June and used Kalahari as our reception venue. We went with their largest wedding package and I can honestly say that it was worth every penny. We were able to work with both Bridget and Gretchen. Bridget set up our initial walk-thru of the venue along with creating a room block for our guests. As the wedding drew closer, Bridget would send me emails (by my request) monthly and then weekly letting me know which of our guests had booked rooms so that I knew how many welcome bags to create. Gretchen was absolutely wonderful to work with! We first met Gretchen at our food tasting a few months before the wedding (although I had spoken with her some via email and over the phone). At the tasting she asked us a lot of questions in order to remain organized for the day and spoke with my parents (bride's) regarding any concerns that they had. We also chose our linens that day and Gretchen made sure to take tons of notes so that she was thoroughly prepared for our recept... Read more

  • We went to the Kalahari Resort in Sandusky Ohio for our Honeymoon. It was close to home and very relaxing. My husband and I loved the food, we probably gained 5 pounds in the week that we were there! I loved the option of charging everything to your room, it was convenient to only have to carry a room key with us. The spa was very nice! We enjoyed a couple massage, very relaxing! I think this would be a great couples vacation or a family vacation, we would love to return!

  • The wedding planning staff were amazing. They worked with us on every detail of our reception. They provided guests with discounts for rooms if they stayed. My husband and I received a free night the night of the wedding. They made sure they accommodated any allergies that were present for the food. The staff even suggested ways for us to save money. Since my husband and I are neither really into fancy parties, the staff suggested that we not use chair covers which saved us a lot of money. The staff even contacted our band in order to make arrangements to their space set up. I really would recommend them to anyone.

  • I thought the Kalahari Resort Convention Center was great. I had my ceremony and reception there. My ceremony was outside by one of their ponds. My reception was in their wedding tent, which was beautiful. Everything went exactly as I imagined it would. The only problem was that they let go the event coordinator I had been working with for the past year only six weeks before my wedding.

  • I used the spa at Kalahari for my pre wedding prep. I went with 3 of my bridesmaids, my mother and mother in law as well as a few other friends. It was nice to treat everyone who had helped so much with the planning to a little pampering. I myself also enjoyed the pampering! Overall we had a great time. I thought the pricing was great, but now that I live in Columbus I cannot believe how much cheaper the same services are here. I do recommend the spa at Kalahari for all the services, I enjoyed a manicure, pedicure, and massage, all well worth the price.
