Wainaku Executive Center Overview

Nestled on finely manicured grounds conveniently located less than a mile north of downtown Hilo along the historic Hamakua coastline, the Wainaku Executive Center offers a truly idyllic setting for your big day. Once the Hilo Sugar Mill, this beautiful venue offers stunning settings both indoors and outdoors. Imagine saying your “I do’s” on the front lanai, the building’s stately columns and unique architecture adding a sense of grandiosity to the occasion, while breathtaking views of the Hilo Bay create a sense of awe and wonder. Continue the festivities outdoors by erecting a tent on the lawn, where you and your guests can dance the night away surrounded by royal palms, swaying coconut trees, and sparkling views of the water. Utilize one of the smaller indoor meeting rooms for a more intimate gathering, where you can dine on delectable cuisine in neutrally decorated rooms that can be adapted to suit any taste or style. Combining jaw-dropping natural scenery with wondrous architecture, your wedding day at the Wainaku Executive Center is sure to leave guests breathless!
