Hawaiian Vow Renewal
Ho‘i hou ke aloha. Fall in love all over again.
Complimentary vow renewal ceremonies are offered weekly to registered guests of Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort and Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort. We invite you to renew your vows in a unique Hawaiian ceremony, with the rising sun, the ocean and the beach as your witnesses. Ho‘ao Pa‘a was the ancient custom by which a couple was bound in lasting union. We utilize many of its powerful elements in our Vow Renewal Ceremony.

To fall in love all over again This is the theme of the ceremony itself, with the oral traditions of chant and prayer.

The ceremonial leader walks into the ocean and offers a powerful chant to cleanse the past, present and future, so that love may reign over all things.
