This summer we started looking for rehearsal dinner ideas. It was difficult because we were coming in from California and wanted everything to be ready for Friday evening. We were so fortunate to have found the Kahua Ranch. From the minute I called Sue Foat(the person who set it all up and also the host and singer), I knew everything would turn out great. The bus picked all fifty of us up from the Fairmont Orchid(right on time) and we had a enjoyable, informative ride up the mountain. Our bus driver was the best! Once we got to the ranch, we were amazed by the incredible views of the Big Island. We were greeted by all the welcoming ranch hands and immediately they started serving us endless drinks of Kona beer, wine,soda, coffee and making us all feel so welcome.We were then given a brief summary of what goes on at the ranch. The dinner of steak and chicken was delicious and the guitar and singing entertainment was so much fun. Sue even sang the Hawaiian wedding song. We line danced, learned to lasso,branded pieces of wood, played horseshoes, roasted marshmallows, looked at the stars and moon on the telescope, took pictures with the horse and the little doggies they have rescued We did our wedding speeches and danced and laughed when Piggly Wiggly came running out. I could go on and on about what a wonderful time we all had. There was something there for everyone and we didn't want to leave. I would highly recommend this place for wedding rehearsal dinners and all types of parties. Thank you Sue Foat for making this such a special night and thanks to all your wonderful staff for an evening in Hawaii that we will never forget.
