Located on the former Dillingham Estate and nestled at the foot of Diamond Head, La Pietra is an ideal venue for your special event, wedding, or photo shoot. The campus boasts architecture reminiscent of an Italian villa, and its peace above Waikiki offers guests extraordinary views of the ocean and city.
La Pietra offers four outdoor sites on its campus for private events, including its Great Lawn, Fountain Courtyard, Athletic Court(s), and Julie Brown Courtyard.
Our policies allow us to book special events by the school year. We expect to be able to share possible dates for August 2019 to July 2020 as early as Spring 2019.
The booking period for August 2018 to July 2019 opened in Spring, so at this point, we have two (2) potential event dates left within the timeframe: Saturday, November 17, 2018 and June 22, 2019. To add your name to our wait list for either of these dates, please contact our Campus Use Coordinator, Stefanie Nomura at email@example.com.
Our campus rates are currently dependent on the number of attending guests. For parties under 100 guests, the base rate for 1-4 hours is $2,500 and $600 for each additional hour. For functions over 100 guests, the base rate for 1-4 hours is $3,500 and $750 for each additional hour. The deposit is based on the number of rental hours as well. For functions 1-4 hours, we require a $1,000 deposit; parties 5 hours or longer require a $2,000 deposit.
Other considerations include that in accordance with city ordinances, the noise level must be diminished by 9:00pm, and all guests and vendors must be cleaned up and off campus by 10:30pm at the latest. All setup and teardown must occur within the rental period. We can accommodate up to 300 guests on our Great Lawn. Events with over 50 cars must contract a professional valet service. There are also additional insurance, off-duty police officer, and possible wedding planner requirements depending on the guest count.
