  • Truly, this is the best and most affordable venue on the island of Oahu. Other venues charge $10-15k knowing most people are having a destination wedding, but it's really not necessary to pay that much to have a dream-worthy wedding. I currently live on Oahu, and because of COVID we decided to have a small ceremony with no guests that will be followed in a year or two by a bigger ceremony/reception with friends and family. I did not want to get married at a resort hotel, and we wanted a private venue where beachgoers would not be in the background of our photos; we also wanted to give our (future) guests a "wow" experience since they'll be flying so far to celebrate with us. So many of us start with Google images and Instagram, but Instagram just doesn't show it all. Kualoa Ranch was the only site that was impressive from start to finish. There are many different sites to choose from, but we liked Paliku Gardens because it gave us spectacular ocean and mountain views and many... Read more

  • We were married on June 26th, 2021 after postponing our wedding due to Covid. The team at Kualoa was so helpful and helped us through hard times! Moil’i Gardens and Secret Island was breathtaking, nothing short of pure magic!

  • Leila freaking rocked our wedding tour guide. My fiance and I were instantly attracted to this venue, but for two very different reasons. I was obsessed because of the location (it's a total dream), with the gorgeous scenery of the mountains and the ocean. Let me tell you... that does not happen in Florida! My fiance loved it because he is a total movie freak and I can not express how many movies have been filmed here! Leila showed him many different filming sites which made him a very happy man. Anyways, pictures do not do this place justice. I immediately reserved my date and venue (Paliku Garden) because I wanted it secured! My wedding is not for two more years, but I am so happy that I booked it when I did. The venues that Kualoa has tends to fill up very quickly. I decided to do Paliku Gardens for both my ceremony and reception. Although I contemplated doing the Secret Island for my ceremony since I have always dreamed of a beach wedding, I decided that it would be more relaxed ha... Read more

    Aloha Colby and Kolby, Wow, what kind words you have to share about our tour. It was so fun meeting you both and hearing about your love story! I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to share your positive experience and even more so, choose Kualoa as your wedding venue. Here's to hoping that the next 2 years fly by so that we can start celebrating with you! Let us know if there is anything that we can do for you over the years!

  • If you are looking for an outdoor, open-air wedding with GORGEOUS views of mountains, or ocean, or both, then look no further than Kualoa Ranch. They offer multiple venue options, and most of them come with "packages" that include tables, chairs, bathrooms, kitchen access, etc depending on which venue you select. Leila (the main wedding coordinator for Kualoa) and her entire team at Kualoa Ranch are a blessing from the wedding heavens. They are professional, responsive, and super helpful from day one. We were a COVID couple, so we had to struggle with multiple rescheduling attempts and changes to plans, but Kualoa was super accommodating and understanding throughout the whole process. We personally chose Low Camp, which is a completely remote location (meaning no electricity or bathrooms, just a cute little water hose for water access) located in the most beautiful Ka'awa valley (literally where Jurassic park and various other films were shot). This gave us the freedom to completely de... Read more

    Aloha Yvonne and Makana, Wow - your words mean so much to me, and the rest of the team here at Kualoa Weddings. You went through so much trying to plan your big day, and your positivity throughout the year did not go unnoticed. Mahalo nui for trusting us! It is because of couples like you that we get to really love what we do. You and Makana will always be apart of our Kualoa `ohana and we look forward to welcoming you back to our property in the future to reminisce on such a special day in your journey together. I have seen a couple of sneak peaks of pictures and can't wait to see more - it looked like a beautiful evening! Mahalo nui loa, Leila Frishak Wedding Sales Manager

  • Planning a wedding during a pandemic isn't easy for anyone. It's even harder to plan it on a site you've never visited before, but Leila and her team provided us with the best experience one can have prepping for a destination wedding. Getting married at Paliku Gardens was an absolute dream. The pictures of this venue don't even do it justice. It's a wonderful change of scenery from your typical Hawaiian beach wedding, and there are so many options on how you can lay out your ceremony and reception at this location alone. The price was very reasonable and their team was very professional. You will not be disappointed with this venue and everything it has to offer. I cannot recommend this place enough.

    Aloha Kim and Eric, Mahalo and congratulations!! We enjoyed working with you throughout the crazy year that we've all endured. We can't thank you enough for trusting us with such a special day in your lives and we can't wait to see photos to come. Hope to welcome you again in the future!

  • My husband and I knew this was the venue we wanted for our special day. Our wedding day was the one day we would be photographed the most in our entire lives, so we wanted to have a beautiful backdrop for all the photos and video. The team at Kualoa, especially Leila, helped make our dream a reality! We are so happy we were able to get married at Kualoa, and the venue has breathtaking views. We wouldn't have wanted it any other way. We highly recommend getting married or eloping at Kualoa Ranch.

  • I cannot say enough good things about Kualoa Ranch. We had our elopement at Secret Island. I really did not want a typical Hawaii beach wedding and Leila was so accommodating with allowing my vision to come to life on the dock with the mountains in the background. It was an absolute fairytale. I can not even put into words how gorgeous it was. If I could do it all over again I would get married here every day. Not only is the location gorgeous but the staff is so wonderful. Honestly my dream wedding came to life here and I am so thankful for Leila and the Kualoa Ranch team!

    Aloha Rachel and Aubrey, This truly brings us so much joy to read. We cannot thank you enough for sharing your experience with us, and we are so happy that you would do it again in a heart beat. How beautiful it was to witness such an intimate and loving occasion between you and Aubrey. We wish you both the best and hope we can welcome you in the future to continue celebrating your love!

  • Absolutely stunning wedding venue!! My wedding venue was the Hale Nanea & Dragon Boat Lawn. Breathing taking views and great amounts of space. So cool to see where films were shot as well, right at our venue. Highly recommend this venue for anyone wanting a one of a kind Hawai'i wedding. Leila and her team are the best. Mahalo to the Kualoa Ranch wedding team for helping us out! We lost our original wedding venue due to COVID restrictions and Leila was able to get us booked with Kualoa Ranch just 2 months before my wedding day.

  • I wish I could give Leila 100 stars! My husband and I have been planning our wedding since late 2018 and she has been a complete joy to work with. We toured venues in California (local to us), Kauai and Oahu. Once we saw Paliku Gardens, we knew this was the place for us. With or without the pandemic, her communication was great and I was never worried about our venue or rescheduling. I would recommend Leila and her venues to anyone looking to get married in Oahu!

    Aloha Genessa and Cody, Mahalo nui for your sweet words! We are so happy that despite this year's challenges, you still chose to celebrate with us. You have been a joy to work with during these times!! We wish you all the best and congratulations on your marriage! Mahalo, Leila Frishak Wedding Sales Manager

  • I knew I wanted this venue! It's beautiful and closed off to the rest of the world. When I initially reached out, it was right before places were opening back up from COVID. I was able to get a response quickly. However, Hawai'i opened up a but more and it took days and even a week to get a response which got me worried especially since my wedding date was coming up. I wanted to look at the venue first in case things had changed and I couldn't get an appointment since they were booked. However, they said they would reserve my date for me longer than they normally do. I really appreciated them being flexible and understanding. They did explain they were getting a lot of inquires for weddings and to expect at least 72 hours for a response. I felt better knowing that I wasn't being ignored, there are just 100s of other brides trying to do the same thing I am. As soon as I got to tour the venue, I was able to fill out the forms, do my payments, and book the venue in no time. It was all smo... Read more

    Aloha Ivette, I just wanted to thank you for this lovely review that you left. We are so happy that you were pleased with your wedding venue and customer service. Though there is an option to hire a vendor for your setup, many couples and their families find it more preferable to take care of the table and chair setup themselves. Thank you again and we hope you are doing well!! Mahalo nui loa, Leila Frishak Wedding Sales Manager

  • The views and surroundings of Kualoa Ranch are unbeatable. We rented out Paliku Gardens, and it was worth the cost to have our wedding there, and to organise all the vendors ourselves, including a tent. The only negative critiques we have is the actual provided pavilion needs a remodel, which is why we invested in the tent for the reception, and the bridal suite, which is hideous. We tried to hang drapes up to cover the horrible looking walls, but for the money you are paying you really shouldn't have to. They need to invest some money into painting the walls (which are covered in a historical timeline that does not suit a bridal suite), as well as also adding better lighting and a few mirrors.

    responded with the following comments.

    Aloha Kristina and Robert, We appreciate your feedback and are so happy that you were mostly satisfied with your wedding here at Kualoa Ranch! I know it does not apply since your wedding has passed, but we just did a complete remodel of the bridal suite complete with the items you mentioned that we should upgrade. It was a pleasure getting to meet you and congratulations again! Thank you for choosing us for your big day. Mahalo, Leila Frishak Wedding Sales Manager

  • We LOVED our venue!! We chose to host the wedding at Molii Gardens and Secret Island, which was absolutely the best choice. We kept the intimate boat ride over to the private beach island as a surprise to our guest and they were all blown away by the beauty. It definitely added another element. During every tour, rehearsal, event my fiance and I were so happy with the beauty and the privacy of the venue. The people who work there were always really nice and professional as well. The venue is an incredible value especially because they let you choose your own vendors including catering and alcohol. I could not recommend this venue more!

    Aloha Talisa and Robbie, Congratulations and mahalo for choosing not one, but two of our spaces to hold your big day in! We really appreciate your kind words about our staff as we strive to create an environment of aloha across our property. We wish you both the best and hope to welcome you again in the future!

  • We got married at the Paliku Gardens at Kualoa Ranch in January 2020. We started planning our wedding in September 2019 for the early 2020 nuptuals and booked the venue site unseen after researching other sites in Oahu, Kauai, Puerto Rico, and locally (for us) in California. We worked with Leila on the wedding venue and she also helped us plan a beach day so we could spend more time with friends following the wedding. My husband and I couldn't dream of a more beautiful venue for our wedding! Paliku Gardens was the perfect venue and backdrop to celebrate our union with all of our loved ones. We were also so so happy to keep the celebration going the following day at Secret Island - one of the highlights of our wedding weekend. Their team was so friendly and accommodating at the wedding and made everyone relaxed and happy at the beach. We had a blast bringing our group to chill on the beach, enjoy a catered lunch, and enjoy all of the activities the island offered. Our only r... Read more
