bodymargin Seaside Venue


Few event sites are lovelier than those tucked along the wild Pacific shore of Na ‘Āina Kai, just beyond the garden’s tropical forest canyon. Our Seaside venue provides an oceanfront setting composed of three distinct, adjacent areas that harmonize to provide a diversified and spacious locale for your private gathering of up to 200 guests. The Seaside venue comes complete with spotless and spacious restroom facilities and electrical power to handle the needs of your caterer, entertainers and lighting vendors.

Makai Meadow This sweeping area with manicured lawn and tropical vegetation encompasses the largest sector of our Seaside venue. A level site with breathtaking ocean views, Makai Meadow borders tranquil Makai Marsh, home to native waterfowl and an abundance of wetland plants. A boardwalk meanders from meadow to marsh, and leads to a stairway ascending to our Polynesian gazebo, which affords a birds-eye view of the coastline and event sites. Makai Meadow easily accommodates several tents for large events such as reception dinners, concerts and performances.

Upper Meadow Terrace Situated at the base of a cliff that juts into the tropical sky, this area is slightly elevated above Makai Meadow and thus can serve as an auxiliary site for events in that larger area. It is perfect for buffet tables or as a preparation area for caterers.

Seaside Green Just steps away from Upper Meadow Terrace, this round, grassy site is the most intimate of our oceanfront venues. It is the gateway to our white sand beach and provides an irresistible locale for vow exchanges, cocktail receptions or simply a welcoming place of repose to soak up the soothing sound of waves upon the shore.
