Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center

The Hui No’eau Visual Arts Center is off Baldwin Avenue near historic Makawao Town.

The property is unique and rich with the culture of Maui’s history. You’ll find a Maui wedding location with roots in Maui’s agriculture days and Old Hawaii. It has since been revived as a historic art estate, a place for classes, workshops, exhibitions, and a host of beautiful events.

In the 1850s, Hui’s property was originally a part of the East Maui Sugar Plantation. In 1885 it was purchased by Henry Perrine Baldwin, then obtained by his son Harry Baldwin. The main home, also known as the Kaluanui Estate, was built by renowned architect C.W. Dickey in 1917. The essence of an Italian villa inspired the design of the house with an apparent Mediterranean influence in the finishes. It’s perched upon a hill with a beautiful courtyard, expansive lawns, mature trees, and coastline views.

The Hui property undoubtedly provides an elegant location and a gorgeous backdrop for all indoor/outdoor events and celebrations. Here is a perfect Maui wedding venue for all to enjoy.

Perched on the slopes of Mauna Kahalawai, the King Kamehameha Golf Club spans over 330 acres.

The Clubhouse is a perfect location for a Maui wedding reception with a beautiful stained glass dome, plentiful seating, a bar, tremendous views, and fantastic acoustics.

Although the Lloyd Wright design was not built when originally planned, the property and the plans were later purchased and put into action by Howard Hamamoto, Pundy Yokouchi, and Takeshi Sekiguchi. Upon visiting the club, originally known as the Waikapu Country Club, guests will see many exterior and interior details that Frank Lloyd Wright-designed: etchings on the glass and elevators, carpet light fixtures, stained glass, and more.
