About Us

Kualoa Ranch Private Nature Reserve is a 4,000 acre wedding venue location on Oahu, Hawaii, about 22 miles outside of Waikiki, on the eastern shores of the island. Kualoa Ranch offers several spectacular ceremony and reception locations within its property. Managed and owned by eight generations of the Judd-Morgan family, who are committed to preserving the culture and natural beauty of the land, it is a beautiful and unique venue for weddings. If Kualoa looks familiar in pictures, it is probably because it has had over 170+ Hollywood Movies and TV shows filmed since Elvis came back in the 1950's! The ranch has also been featured in other blockbusters such as Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, LOST, Kong:Skull Island, 50 First Dates, Hawaii Five-0 and more.

Facilities and Capacity
With many indoor and outdoor options to choose from, Kualoa can fit a range of 2-250 guests. The Secret Island Beach is an intimate and secluded beachfront area, with amazing waterfront views of Mokoli‘i Island, the surrounding Ko’olau Mountain range and Kaneohe Bay. It is great for private VIP parties and even celebrities have held events at Secret Island ... including Niki Minaj, Nicole Scherzinger, the Kardashians and Janet Jackson.

The quaint, rustic Ranch House Terrace overlooks the ocean and can fit 250 guests under the enclosed pavilion and on the lawn space combined.

Located at the base of the Kanehoalani Mountain peak, the amazing tropical Paliku Gardens can accommodate up to 150 guests in the open-aired pavilion and 250 guest on the lush lawn area. Paliku has been the site of a few celebrity events including Michelle Obama and the Dalai Lama.

Lastly, the Moli’i Gardens is a two-tiered garden venue right on the edge of the beautiful 800-year-old Hawaiian fishpond. It can fit up to 100 guests under the pavilion and 250 in the garden area. It has a spectacular staircase that descends down to a cottage (from the Hollywood movie You, Me and Dupree) for an extra special ceremony spot.

There are also several more open air areas (Low Camp and Jumanji), that have served as secluded celebrity wedding venues, and even hosted Hawai'i's Diner en Blanc event with 5000 people in 2017.

  • Leila freaking rocked our wedding tour guide. My fiance and I were instantly attracted to this venue, but for two very different reasons. I was obsessed because of the location (it's a total dream), with the gorgeous scenery of the mountains and the ocean. Let me tell you... that does not happen in Florida! My fiance loved it because he is a total movie freak and I can not express how many movies have been filmed here! Leila showed him many different filming sites which made him a very happy man. Anyways, pictures do not do this place justice. I immediately reserved my date and venue (Paliku Garden) because I wanted it secured! My wedding is not for two more years, but I am so happy that I booked it when I did. The venues that Kualoa has tends to fill up very quickly. I decided to do Paliku Gardens for both my ceremony and reception. Although I contemplated doing the Secret Island for my ceremony since I have always dreamed of a beach wedding, I decided that it would be more relaxed ha... Read more
