Seawatch or Royal Lahaina?

Recommended Posts

Does any one have any ideas or have been to any weddings at Seawatch or Royal Lahaina? I can't seem to decide between the two. I'm excited about the food at Seawatch and the new chef, however I love the views from Royal Lahaina. ANy input would be great! Thanks.

Hi! I looked at both venues and found the Seawatch to be less for more. An acquaintance of mine got married at the Seawatch and she has some pretty stunning shots from her wedding.

 

Beware...the wedding coordinator is slow to get back to you and they do all their communication via e-mail.

Have you decided yet? I'm going through the same decision right now... and I can't decide either! Seawatch appears to be the most cost effective -- but I too love the views of Royal Lahaina...

We had our wedding ceremony at Seawatch, on the Molokini Lookout. The views were incredible. My husband and I both concluded that the pictures we had seen online of the location had not done it justice! It was truly breathtaking.

I really can't help in comparing it with Royal Lahaina though lol.

We also did not have our reception at Seawatch. We jumped over to Mulligan's on the Blue for that (which I don't believe is even a mile away) as their prices were better for our budget. One thing's for sure for anyone who considers Mulligan's, do not consider their lower prices in terms of what quality you may get compared to the other restaurants in the area who charge much more. The food was incredible. High quality and delicious!

Good luck in your decision! Anything you decide is sure to be beautiful. Maui was amazing!!

April,

 

I currently have my wedding and reception reserved at the SeaWatch with the afterparty taking place at Mulligan's. If Mulligan's is really that much cheaper I may switch my reception there. Was your reception inside our outside and was it private?

 

Thanks!

Hey!

Our reception was outside on their ocean facing lanai. Based on the setting, it felt very private although we didn't do a buyout. We followed the meal with a DJ and dance inside. I actually only recall seeing other restaurant guests as we arrived and walked between tables to our parties section. They do tell you, if you have a dance without a buyout, other guests aren't restricted from dancing if they wish but we had nobody join us! We all had a great time here and were thankful we went this route. Mulligan's really doesn't restrict music options, which is nice, and they did a great job of providing everything we needed!!!

Let me know if you'd like to know more!

I know this is a really old post, if you could tell me about your reception at mulligans that would be great! I'm going to have 60-70 people, was there the ability to say a few toasts/speeches? Were you and your husband able to have a first dance?

 

Thanks!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
