Paradise found! The Guest House at River Estate offers exclusive ultra private Kauai honeymoon accommodations that gives travelers a singular experience in a truly magical setting.

Accommodation is an essential part of the planning for wedding party. The guests cannot be left on their own when travel long distances to attend the wedding. The hosts have to take care of their reception on the airport or railway station and – most important, accommodation.

How to provide the best accommodation to your guests?

There are enormous options available for the accommodation of the guests. You can book the rooms in five star hotels to affordable lodges for the guests. Generally, the hosts must find a nice accommodation nearby the wedding venue. However, if not possible, arrange a transportation medium from the accommodation to the wedding venue.

Most of the professional wedding planners arrange the accommodation on their own. The budget of the host is taken into consideration. Many hotels offer the special service for weddings. They arrange everything from the wedding party, food to accommodation. Since, everything is available at one place; it becomes convenient for the hosts and the guests as well. The wedding reception is arranged in the party or banquette halls. The food is prepared at the hotel kitchen and served by their staff.

Multiple vacation rentals in Hanalei, Kauai. Offering vacation rentals, vacation homes, villas, resorts, cottages and excellent customer service. Rates: Budget to Luxury.

Some of the hotels can offer only accommodation due to lack of party hall or loan. In this case, hosts need to book the rooms on advance. The guests at the hotel are offered all the services that are offered to a normal guest at the hotel. This however depends on the level of the hotel. A five- star hotel provides breakfast in the room and mid-time snacks to the guests. The guests are assisted by trained staff of the hotel. Some hotels even offer the transportation service. The host can ask for the same while booking for the rooms.

Since the host is booking large number of rooms at one hotel at the same time, discounts can be obtained. Major hotels offers discount packages for the group booking. These packages comprise of discount on the booking cost and provision of additional services. This kind of concession is given on the booking of rooms with booking of party hall.

The accommodation arrangements can also be done in lodges. When the host cannot afford accommodation in five star hotels, he can search for a cheap yet neat and nice lodge. There are two and three star hotels and lodges which offer a good quality of accommodation.

Accommodation in place exclusively for weddings

Some of the hotels and accommodation places are present exclusively for wedding ceremonies. These hotels offer a wide range of services when booked for weddings. They offer well furnished bridal suit and other special rooms for accommodation. The guests are taken to and from the airports and stations. These hotels posses large party halls or landscaped gardens. The bride and groom’s parents are facilitated with large king sized bedrooms.

Hosts can even search for the accommodation near the airport or the railway station. This is highly convenient for the guest arriving from distant places. They can relax immediately after they arrive. The hotel staff can be informed about the arrival of the guest. If not, the host can arrange separate transportation arrangements. The guests who need to leave immediately after the wedding find it convenient to stay in the hotel near the airport or railway station. They can inquire about the next flight or train at the hotel.

Let’s face it; one of the most difficult aspects of a wedding is arranging for accommodations for your entire wedding party…at least for those who are coming from out of town. If you are going to have your wedding in a far off place like, Hawaii, the challenge becomes all that much more formidable. Can you imagine the logistical nightmare of making sure that every single person in your wedding party has somewhere decent to sleep for the duration of the proceedings?

Thankfully, the task is not as impossible as it would seem at first. While we are not here to tell you that it is going to be a walk in the park to arrange for accommodations, it is entirely possible to make sure that everyone can get settled in comfortably without too much effort, IF you take the time to plan it out carefully beforehand and communicate your needs with the hotel staff clearly.

While your options for accommodations for your wedding party in Hawaii are many and varied, these can generally be divided into two types. You can either opt to rent a resort condominium, or you can go for a luxury resort hotel.

Now obviously the luxury resort hotel will come in a great deal more expensive but other than that, each type of accommodation will have its own advantages and disadvantages. Let’s take a look at the resort condominium first.

As we mentioned earlier, the main advantage of the resort condominium is that it will come at a much cheaper price. This is obviously a major consideration in any wedding, as the costs of housing how ever many people there are in your wedding party can quickly get out of hand. A resort condominium then is a good way to make sure that everyone has suitably comfortable accommodations at a reasonable price.

If you think that you will be skimping by going for this option, you should know that there are really a lot of very good resort condominiums in Hawaii, with amenities that are at par with some of the best hotels in the island. Many will even have a pool and amenities such as barbecues and restaurants on the premises. The key here is to compare the features of as many different resort condominiums as possible before settling on any one.

Now if money is no object, by all means do away with the resort condominium and billet your guests at a luxury resort hotel. This is definitely a good way to get in good with the various in-laws and they will surely appreciate the luxury treatment that the hotel staff can provide. Just as with resort condominiums however, you will want to do some careful comparison shopping in order to get the best deal for the money.
