Help selecting wedding venue in Maui!

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!


I'm in the process of selecting a venue for my ceremony & reception in Maui Fall '07, we're expecting around 50 guests. I have a vision of a classic/ elegant wedding. We're looking at ritz-carlton, 4S, hyatt and westin. Also, I'm not interested in incorporating any Hawaiian traditions into the wedding (no offense at all! It's just not my culture & I think a wedding should be reflective of the couple).


I'm seeing a lot of packaged offerings that aren't matching up with my vision. Again I don't mean to be offensive, but they seem tacky & "canned".


Can you offer your opinions of these resorts? As well as general advice?

well you can't go wrong with the 4 seasons...if that was not an option because it is expensive ($600-800 per night) then i would do hyatt.

A friend of mine got married at the Maui Westin last March and loved it. She said they have a "fabulous sweet" wedding coordinator who arranges everything via email and once you get there. Her name is Tamara Mcgee. Her photographer was Paulo Mendes and she said he was fabulous as well. If you have specific questions about the Westin, I'd be happy to try to put her in contact with you.

hi and welcome :)


we stayed at the Fairmont last summer and it was amazing.


We also dined at one of the golf courses in Wailea and saw two weddings going on there. Also very beautiful. The Hyatt, Westin and Ritz are all on the Kanapali/Kapalua side which can be very windy, so keep that in mind. After staying on both sides, I definitely prefer Wailea.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
