We looked at several different locations before settling on Plantation Gardens, and believe me when I say that if you are getting married on Kauai, and you want a stress-free, easy, beautiful experience - choose Plantation Gardens. My husband and I had a small (10 person) event for a vow renewal, and the site is amazing. It is not on the beach (which was best for us because we wanted privacy), but the grounds are beautiful. We had our ceremony underneath the plumeria tree and it was romantic and secluded. There are many beautiful locations for weddings on the island, but ultimately we chose this location because of two reasons: privacy and Amy. Amy is an amazing coordinator, and she's 100% on top of everything. It's very noticeable that she loves her job and that she's amazing at it. I cannot stress enough how responsive, kind, and helpful she was! She helped us find everything from an officiant, photographer, florist, and day before hair stylist! The food is divine and is worth every penny of the cost. We chose two types of fish and the steak and lobster for our guests. We all also highly recommend the crab and avocado salad for a starter! Every single one of our guests said it was the best wedding food they'd ever had. The staff made sure the drinks were always flowing. I must have had 6 of the Garden Island Teas (you must try!) before I realized how much I drank! They made sure that the kids always had fun non-alcoholic drinks, and kept us plied with coffee and water when needed. We did the Kona mocha cake for dessert (cakes by Sandi), and it was so good that my mother in law was speaking of it wistfully for three days. Long story short, if you're dreaming of having the kind of event that is beautiful and stress-free, choose Plantation Gardens.

What a beautiful place for a wedding reception! Amy was so kind to help us plan our wedding reception of 24 at Plantation Gardens. For the months leading up to the wedding, Amy was extremely helpful and very quick to reply to all my emails. On the day of the wedding, Amy and her staff created a beautiful atmosphere for our special day. The food was absolutely delicious, our drinks were constantly refilled, and we felt like royalty! I even spilled a mai tai on my dress and before I knew it, I had seltzer water on the table to help get the stain out! This placed is filled with aloha and I highly recommend it over and over again!!

My husband and I had our reception here after having our wedding on the beach. Amy C., event manager was wonderful to work with, answering all of our questions and checking in with us until the end of the evening! Our menus matched our color scheme and we felt as though we had the entire restaurant to ourselves even though we held our dinner and dancing on the front lanai and orchid terrace! Our guests raved about the food, cake, and service. Mahalo PG for helping make our wedding day so special!

My wife, Alyssa, and I hosted our wedding at P.G. on 5/19/18. We have been to Kauai multiple times, but had never visited the venue until our walk-through the day before our wedding. When we arrived and met with Amy, events manager from P.G., and our coordinator, we were blown away by how beautiful and perfect the space was. It truly surpassed all of our expectations. The inside bar area had recently been remodeled and the outside lanai is open, breezy and gorgeous. The day-of the wedding was no different. Everything went so smoothly thanks to the attentive and professional staff - you all are rockstars! Literally, every single person we met that worked there was so nice, and made sure Alyssa and I were always taken care of. I mentioned to one of the waitresses that I loved the coconut shrimp appetizers, and without even asking, she brought me a plate full of them and a new, cold beer, since mine had been sitting out. That is just one of the many examples of how attentive the staff is. All of the food was delicious. The space itself is so incredibly beautiful - plenty of room on the back lawn for 90-100 person ceremony (our guest count was around 90) and it did not seem crowded at all. The backdrop of the gardens behind the ceremony was beautiful and perfect. There are spots along the lanai where you can see the ocean as well. It is just a short walk across the street if you want to take photos on the sand! Amy and her staff were also so flexible and accommodating. My wife is vegan, and they were able to put a delicious option on the menu for her, as well as add a chicken dish for us that was not originally on the menu. We did an open bar and chose the value drink package and the drinks were fantastic. Multiple people came up to Alyssa and I and said that this was the best wedding they had ever been to. It really was the best place we could have chosen for our wedding, and we could not have asked for a better venue or a better day. Thank you Amy and P.G.!

Loved, loved, loved Plantation Garden as our ceremony and wedding venue! Amy was so sweet and awesome to work with. She really knows how to run a wedding and offered to be our onsite coordinator since we didn't actually have a wedding coordinator. For our small scale wedding (20 people), we were able to use the Orchid Terrace, which gave us the privacy and intimacy needed. The ceremony itself took place on their lawn, which has a large orchid tree as its background. We almost decorated with cascading strands of orchid but ended up not because it was already very picture-esque. The ceremony only took 30 minutes or so, and the guests were able to get started on their drink package right after. We opted for the premium drink package, and everyone couldn't stop raving about how good the drinks were! While the groom and I went away for the pictures, Amy and the staff (amazing service, btw) got them started on the pupus (appetizers), which were really popular among the guests. We are also the most indecisive bunch, and Amy was so patient with us and offered her guidance without being pushy or overbearing. You really can't beat the value of the venue here because they lend you everything for free (eg, chairs, tables) and take care of you beyond what's expected. As part of the meal course, we opted for two types of salads (one had so much crab that it was almost an entree itself). The main entree was a choice of two fish and ribeye. Everyone loved their food and was so full. You also have the option to work with their baker Sandi to create a cake of your liking, and not only was it really pretty, it was also very delicious. If you have enough guests, you can also opt to do a whole restaurant buy-out, which will still be cheaper than most of the venues. At the end of the day, your wedding lasts few hours. We're so glad that we went with Plantation Gardens because they gave us the best service for our money, and our guests left beyond happy and full.

We held our wedding here this past November, and it was absolutely perfect. We planned our wedding from out of town, and working with Amy and Jeff was awesome. They always responded to emails and made time for phone calls. They clearly have lots of experience with weddings and were a big help. On the day of the wedding everything was perfect. The gardens are the perfect backdrop (quiet and private) for the ceremony and there is a beach right across the road for sunset photos. They made sure our guests were taken care of with appetizers and beverages between the ceremony and reception. I have gotten so many compliments on the food and the service (no water or wine glass was ever left empty). The was no need for decor as the gardens and the restaurant were lovely. We did bring some small centre pieces, and they provided customized menus for us. I would highly recommend the Plantation Gardens to anyone planning a wedding on Kauai.

I started looking at this venue initially because I talked to multiple wedding planners who recommended it. I now understand why it is so highly recommended. First of all, the setting of this venue is beautiful! The website does not do it justice! I thought the location looked pretty on the website and blogs I saw, but it is way more beautiful in person. The service at the restaurant was great. The events coordinator answered all of questions, which I emailed her frequently with, and everything ran very smoothly the day of the wedding. The food was also delicious. Guests enthusiastically complimented the food days after the event. Also, I did a bit of research prior to selecting this venue for a wedding. I even considered venues on Maui for a time, and I would say, for what you get, the price of this venue is well worth it. Although I didn't ever go through with planning an event at a private location, I considered it, and I am glad I went with Plantation Gardens because they provided everything like the linens and tableware for the dinner and the chairs for the ceremony and even lights I could rent for a decent price - so I would say they made all the planning fairly easy!

Gina was wonderful. Really easy to work with. It ended up raining on our wedding day which as a bride had me stressed all day. When we arrived she was so calm and helpful. She let us wait until the rain died down a little to begin the ceremony. Plantation Gardens was the perfect place to get married

Plantation Gardens is the perfect place for a destination wedding. From the beginning of my wedding planning last summer, their events planner Gina was incredibly helpful with all aspects of the planning process - responding to e-mails very quickly, offering lots of advice, telling me about other vendors and walking me through every little detail. We did the restaurant buyout, so the whole place was ours. The minimum price of $12,500 was much more reasonable than all wedding venues that I'd looked at where I live in Boston, and much better than other hotels or venues on Kauai. The venue is truly beautiful. Our ceremony was on the lawn next to koi ponds and an orchid garden, and the cocktail hour on the lawn allowed our guests to explore both the orchid garden and the cactus garden. The food and drinks at Plantation Gardens in amazing! We got to choose three entrees from a list of about 10 mouth-watering options, and they are not small wedding portions. Our guests raved about their meals and did not go home hungry! We chose a bunch appetizers from a huge list. All of our guests raved about each one, especially the pork belly sliders and the coconut shrimp. The tropically inspired cocktail menu was a real hit - we chose the hibiscus cooler and garden island tea for signature drinks. For dessert, we ordered a small cutting cake from Plantation Gardens' baker and let our guests choose between the passion fruit cheesecake and a flourless chocolate cake. Sandi, the baker, gave us unlimited options for our cake, and it was fabulous. Our guests loved both of their choices. I recommend Plantation Gardens with the highest praise!

Gina and the team at Plantation Gardens surpassed all of our expectations (and they were already high!). We booked everything online, and they were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about what to expect/vendors to contact/everything else we had questions about. When we arrived in Kaua'i, we were blown away by the beauty of the gardens in person (the pictures do not do it justice). During the ceremony, everything went off without a hiccup... they set up and took down for our ceremony/musicians/cocktail hour silently in the background, without the guests even noticing. The servers were on hand at all times to refill drinks and serve fresh appetizers. The dinner was on the south lanai, which looks over the ceremony gardens and the koi pond. The guests were free to mingle on the lanai or on the lawn, which was lit with tiki torches as the night progressed. All together, it was a perfect evening hosted by a highly professional and affable team. We would highly recommend to Plantation Gardens to anyone considering a wedding venue in Poipu, Kaua'i.

If you want the best food and drink on the island look no further. The setting is fabulous for outside wedding followed by cocktail time,dinner and dancing. We bought out the restaurant for the night which is actually quite reasonable if you have 50 plus guests. Gina and staff were very professional and made the whole event.

We chose to have our wedding reception at Plantation Gardens, and we cannot say enough wonderful things about it. Planning a destination wedding from afar would give any bride anxiety, but from our first communications with Plantation Gardens (Mona at first, later transferred to Gina) we felt completely at ease. We were so impressed with Gina. She promptly responded to every email and went above and beyond, catering to our needs beyond what we requested. She has impeccable attention to detail. When we arrived, she had thought of and taken care of everything, which was such a relief for us. She is the sweetest person, and we loved working with her. Plantation Gardens is not only beautiful, but the food is fantastic. We compared menus and prices between several reception venues, and by far, Plantation Gardens was the best value in terms of offering a high-quality event for a very reasonable price. The venue itself is very intimate and private, a former plantation house surrounded by an orchid garden on one side and a manicured lawn dotted with flowers and overhead twinkling lights leading to tall trees on the other. One guest said to us he felt like he was standing in a garden in Beverly Hills. We had cocktails and pupus on the lawn followed by a plated dinner on the open lanai. The waitstaff was very attentive to all of our guests throughout the evening. The food was great - steaks cooked to perfection, fresh-caught local seafood, and a delicious passionfruit vanilla buttercream cake. We would highly recommend Plantation Gardens to anyone looking for a reception venue, and we certainly plan to dine in the restaurant every time we come back to the island in the future!
