The Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Astoria Collection hotel on Maui, is offering engaged couples "A Perfect 10," a collection of discounts, specials and incentives designed to attract soon-to-be-wed pairs planning a wedding for 2010 to the 728-room, 52-suite property.
Under the program, couples booking weddings to take place at the Grand Wailea by Dec. 19, 2010 can avail themselves of perks such as wedding specialist services, honeymoon turndown service with tropical flowers and free use of "casabellas," or shaded canopy lounge chairs.
In addition, weddings savings include 10% off wedding celebration packages and private, catered events, including receptions, and 50% off the best-available-room rates for newlyweds' entire stays. In addition, couples who book their 2010 wedding at the resort receive an extra 10% off, making for a total 20% discount on wedding celebration packages.
Abutting Wailea Beach on 40 acres of lush Hawaiian gardens, the Grand Wailea -- which unveiled $50 million in renovations this January -- offers a total 110,000 square feet of "celebrations space." The choice of wedding backdrops includes cascading waterfalls, tropical gardens, gazebos, the beach and the New England-style Seaside Chapel.
Grand Wailea's selection of wedding packages includes the Haleakala Celebration, priced at $5,100. The deal includes use of the Seaside Chapel and gardens for 1.5 hours; services of a wedding specialist and an officiator; two white orchid leis and a tropical bouquet; choice of guitarist, harpist or violinist; a commemorative marriage certificate; a 2-hour photography session and wedding album with 24 prints and an 8-by-11 portrait; a Tiffany & Co. memento; attire pressing; and a gazebo brunch for two.
The Lei Aloha Celebration, priced from $6,500, differs slightly, adding a choice of flowers, a two-tiered wedding cake for 15 and a bottle of champagne. The Candlelight Celebration package, priced from $7,400, adds several premium perks, including an arrangement of 40 candles for the ceremony, upgraded flowers for bride and groom, and a "flower petal scatter" for the walk to the chapel.
