If you are looking for the ultimate serene wedding in paradise, look no further, because Hawaii Island Retreat at Ahu Pohaku Ho’omaluhia—meaning “The Gathering Place of Peace-giving Stones”—is the perfect setting for your romantic, peaceful Hawaiian ceremony and reception. Set among towering evergreens and cool, ocean breezes, with 50 acres of pristine gardens, ocean view, wild groves, and intimate valley trails, Hawaii Island Retreat offers a picturesque setting for your nuptials. Whether you choose to say your “I Dos” with the magnificent Pacific Ocean, with its peaceful, calming waves, in the background or among the naturally green splendor that is the Hawaiian landscape, you and your guests will enjoy a relaxing day of joyous celebration. The beauty and calm that is Hawaii Island Retreat is unparalleled and a reception held in the courtyard with a majestic Hawaiian sunset in the background, giant palm trees swaying in the warm breeze, and twinkling paper lanterns leaving a soft glow on you and your guests as you drink and dance in celebration is nothing less than perfect.
