Ōneo Bay, the Pacific Ocean and unforgettable sunsets.

Papa Kona Events & Catering is based in Kailua-Kona at our flagship restaurant on historic Ali’i Drive, but we can cater events anywhere on the Big Island.

Wedding Ceremonies

Located on the south side of Papa Kona Restaurant and Cafe, right on Ōneo Bay.

Hidden on the south facing shore of Ōneo Bay is our ceremony lawn. Our couples are married between a natural arch formed by two towering coconut trees, and the sparkling waters of the bay create the perfect backdrop for photos.

Wedding Receptions

The reception space is located on the second floor of Papa Kona Restaurant.

The Lanai follows the coastline here in Kona; allowing for 270-degree views of Ōneo Bay, the open Pacific ocean, and stunning sunsets.  Our floorplan allows for a unique layout to suit your event, from romantic long tables to more conversational cocktail style seating. Bistro lights crisscross above your guests, while decorative Edison bulbs throughout create the perfect warm, festive atmosphere.
