Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa

What makes weddings at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki unique?
Our newly-renovated ballrooms are located across the street from our main hotel building, giving our banquet facilities a more intimate feel and concentrated on your event, without the feeling of a busy hotel property surrounding you. We also have a ballroom space with views overlooking Waikiki beach and the ocean! And what celebration would be complete without food? From a bountiful buffet to simple classics, our culinary team will design a menu that is as tantalizing to the eye as it is to the palate.
What do you love about your job?
I have been working at Hyatt Regency Waikiki for 15 years now, and I absolutely love what I do. I love interacting with brides and grooms to ensure that their wedding day is extra special. At Hyatt we feel that a successful guest interaction is not only to make them feel welcome, but to make them feel like they are at home. We translate this to our wedding clients by making them feel like they can trust us with their most important event.
When you aren't hard at work with weddings, what do you enjoy doing?
I am an avid UH football fan... I love going to football games, watching games on TV and anything pertaining to UH football! My favorite time of year is definitely football season. I also enjoy eating a new restaurants and trying new foods.
What is your favorite wedding color palette?
I LOVE color; but when a couple can pull off an all white wedding, it is sooooooo beautiful.
What do your brides love most about the Hyatt Regency Waikiki?
They always fall in love with our beautiful outdoor ocean view terrace and the stunning chandeliers in the main ballroom!
