Choosing the right place to stay to match your tastes, expectations, and budget is key to planning your dream Hawaii vacation.
Host Your Wedding at a Beautiful Hawaiian B&B
Hawaiian weddings are incredible – white sand beaches, a gentle tropical breeze, soft music playing at sunset, and amazing views in every direction make for the perfect photographs and memories. For a combination of a reliable home base for your wedding party and the beauty of an outdoor Hawaiian wedding, reserving a bed and breakfast on the Big Island is considerably more affordable and comfortable than a larger resort event. These are our favorite choices for a Big Island bed and breakfast wedding:
Located in the heart of the Kona Coffee farming area, the Holualoa Inn presents an expansive agricultural property for you and your guests to enjoy during the ceremony. With four guest rooms, two suites, and a separate cottage, your party will have plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy themselves before and after the special moment. There’s also a large pavilion on the premises that are perfect for receptions and dinners after the ceremony.
An experienced wedding destination, the Palm Cliffs House Inn provides breathtaking scenes of the Pacific Ocean against the skyline to provide the perfect setting for your special day. While there’s not a ton of space on the property, this beautiful B&B is an ideal location for a small or family-only gathering.
Built within the cliffs of Hilo, Kulaniapia Falls provides wedding ceremonies for those wishing to enjoy the natural beauty of Hawaii. More than 40 people can stay comfortably at the location, with private guest facilities, a family suite, and glamping-style tents. There’s also a functioning farm on-site, providing fresh ingredients for your dinners. Oh, and did we mention the private waterfall?
Leilani Bed and Breakfast
92-8822 Leilani Parkway
Ocean View, HI 96737
A unique and gorgeous location for any occasion, the Leilani Bed, and Breakfast along the southern tip of the Big Island provides incredible access to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, but the volcanic geography is present throughout the area. In fact, one of the highlights of a wedding hosted at Leilani is a massive lava tube that serves as the ceremony site. The grand entrance is graded and bursting with natural light with the tube’s interior decorated with blooming orchids.
While not technically a bed and breakfast, the location and wedding services provided by Lava Lava Beach Club make it a must for any Big Island wedding list. With two ceremony locations, private cottages for your wedding party, and an expansive beachside dinner setting, it’s a great consideration for those traveling to Hawaii with a larger group of friends and family.
