About Us

Weddings at Keauhou Bay

Keauhou, which means “a new beginning,” is the name of a very special place on Hawaii, the Big Island that we call home.  A picture perfect inlet reaches out into the cobalt blue of the Pacific Ocean to form the location of the world famous Keauhou Bay, the birthplace of King Kamehameha III.

Set on an ancient lava flow along the Kona coast, this inviting 22-acre resort is ideal for families, honeymooners and adventure seekers.  Relax in a comfortable guest room, indulge in world-class dining options, or explore a variety of outdoor activities. Let select amenities and intuitive services help you realize the vacation of your dreams.

Inclusive wedding packages at Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay present a unique moment in time, overwhelming the boundaries of romance and sophistication. We work with every couple to create their perfect everlasting moment.

Couples considering a destination wedding appreciate Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay where there is no ‘cookie-cutter’ standard for weddings. Each day is personal, magical, and just for them.

Ceremony Locations

For a dramatic ceremony location, we offer the picturesque Bayside Wedding Gardens, which includes Bayside Chapel – the only one on the Kona Coast, Lawn, Photo Gardens, and Overlook. An authentic Hawaiian wedding on our Hawaii Lawn with private luau party and show is a popular option. Or, perhaps your dream wedding is an intimate gathering with the setting sun as the backdrop?  Declare your love “on the lava” with toes in the sand as waves crash against dramatic black lava cliffs in a setting that is unmatched anywhere else in Hawaii at our Sunset Ocean Cliff location.

For smooth progression from wedding ceremony to reception, choose one or more of our beautiful event locations.  We will be happy to assist you in making all your arrangements for your entire day from beginning to end.

At Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay, we create every wedding to be a unique, customized event to remember. Our wedding specialists do all of the hard work for you, working with you on event design, marriage or civil union licensing, and they assist with creating a delectable reception menu and so much more.
