In the Hawaiian language, the word Keauhou means “a
new beginning.” What better place for couples to embark on their
new life together than at a place named Keauhou? Seems it would be
a natural draw for those seeking a site to tie the knot or to share
a romantic honeymoon.
Why not do both? Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort &
Spa is situated in a scenic oceanfront setting that helps make a
dream wedding in paradise become a reality.
Stretching along the coastline, the resort provides
an exotic backdrop for its Bayside Wedding Center, which includes
the Bayside Chapel, an emerald lawn and quaint gazebo.

appointments for the bride at Hoola Spa to a tee time for the groom

Sheraton Keauhou Bay wedding simple and smooth.
“I think brides are quite surprised when they find

occasions. “With e-mail being such a great communication tool, I
can correspond efficiently with the couple, share pictures of the
location, the flowers, the cake and really ease her potential
Cone continued, “After eight years of wedding and
event planning, I think I can anticipate almost anything, and I can
handle pretty much any ‘off the wall’ request whatever it takes to
make the couple’s wedding perfect for them.”
