     Aloha everyone! J Trying to find a great location in Maui for our wedding that will have anywhere between 50 and 70 guests. We thought a private estate (preferably west side) where some of us could stay and also have the wedding (ceremony and reception) might be the way the go. Can anyone suggest any locations that might be suitable? Thanks, S.

      I have heard a lot of good things about Olowalu Plantation House. And that it is even more beautiful in person. We are a small group so we are only having our ceremony there. But I have seen pictures of ceremonies and receptions there and they look beautiful.

        I have also heard great things about Olawalu Plantation House.  However, they are strict with music restrictions and they have a 10 p.m. curfew, so everything must be shut down by then.  That's the only reason why we didn't choose it...

          Hi ladies, thanks very much for the advice!! Funnily enough, we actually did book Olowalu before I saw  these posts....so thanks for the reassurance! :)

          I can't wait to get married there ~ it looks so amazing! S

            My sister was married there!! AMAZING! It was such a great time, we still talk about it all the time! Here's a few pics from it.... the place did a great job, I would have loved to have my wedding there but I am from the east coast so a caribbean wedding worked out better for us. I did however use the same booking Planner, photographer, and videographer as my sister. They all offer special rates for destination weddings.


            Hope you have an amazing day!

              I just got married at Grand Wailea Feb, 2012. It was a dream location for us. It was our first time visiting Maui, and planning everything from a distance was for sure a concern at the beginning. Our wedding coordinator at Grand Wailea made it such a smooth and easy process for us. The staff were very accommodating and attentive, and the ground is not crowded at all which made photo taking a breeze. The location is ideal for us because majority of our guests stayed nearby the location (tons options to choose from), some of them even walked to the event. The food was referred to as "best lobster I had ever have" by most of our guests. I am allergic to alcohol, and the variety of mocktail was incredible. They made all the tropical combinations I could imagine. The sunset was to die for as well. We had our reception outdoor and the 10 O'clock noise bylaw had to be honoured. We were worried about that before, but Maui air somehow took care of the concern. Everyone seem to get up so early to enjoy the sun and the beach, and it was a struggle for us and our guests to stay energetic much later. 10pm shut down was actually perfect, to our surprise. If you are determined to party pass 10pm, I believe you'll be able to with an indoor location.


              Here's our wedding video highlight for your reference. Best luck to your hunting of the perfect location.
