Catering Eligibility

Only authorized individuals are permitted to sponsor catered functions at the Hale Koa Hotel. The Hale Koa Hotel is an Armed Forces Recreation Center serving active duty and retired members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Authorized personnel are eligible to book banquets, meetings, private parties, and other special events when the Sponsor is an authorized user.


Banquet facilities may be used by the following categories of personnel: Active or retired military personnel and their dependents, active or retired Reserve and National Guard members who possess a valid and current I.D. card and their family members, Department of Defense Civilians and their family members. After a banquet contract is finalized (usually 6-8 weeks prior to a function date), the authorized sponsor must visit the Catering Office with a valid I.D. card and sign the contract.


Private catered events contracted at the Hale Koa Hotel represent an agreement for services between the client and the Hale Koa Hotel. As such, a private catered event may not be advertised to the general public.


Use of hotel facilities to conduct personal or commercial business that involves money transactions, whether by entrance fee, retail sales or other is prohibited. This includes fundraising activities.
