When looking for the most idyllic Kona wedding locations on the beach, choose from six oceanfront venues for your fairy-tale wedding at the Royal Kona Resort. Follow the floral path sprinkled with orchid petals as you walk down the aisle of well-manicured lawns and say "I Do" on the edge of paradise. Select from a thatched gazebo, under an Ohia wood canopy, or perched on lava rocks fronting the blue ocean. Host an intimate ceremony or reception for as little as two guests or plan a lavish event for up to 500 guests in a versatile venue.
