Four Seasons Wailea

Perhaps one of the state's most posh resorts, the Four Seasons Wailea is known for its attention to detail and punctual service, something often hard to find in Hawaii.

Keys To (A Free Car At) Kapalua ... Fresh Art In The Shops At Mauna Lani

At this past weekend's Maui Film Festival, we ran in to Maui Land & Pineapple CEO and Chairman David Cole, who was enthusiastic about two things: The 100% recycled utensils and cups (made from corn!) at legendary music producer and Maui resident Shep Gordon's VIP party, and future plans for the development at Kapalua. With projects like Kapalua Mauka, Pulelehua, the Ritz Carlton Club Residences and a new and improved golf course, Cole certainly has plenty to be excited about.

I was recently privileged with a stay at the Hotel Hana-Maui, proceeding the fantastic Celebration of the Arts event held in West Maui, at the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua. After heated debates over "How to market the spirituality of Hawaii", beautiful performances such as the renowned Hawaiian falsetto masters "Kamakakehau", and an overall warm, fuzzy feeling at seeing typical Ritz-Carlton clientele gelling applaudably with local Hawaiian ohana, I wasn't expecting to have yet another eye-opening moment on Maui to remind me how lucky I am to be in the field of journalism. But it happened.

New Mediterranean Gourmet And Bistro Opens On Kauai's North Shore

While the North Shore of Kauai is perhaps one of the most breathtakingly picturesque locales on the Hawaiian Islands, it may come as a surprise that the dining options recently left us feeling like there was quite a bit to be desired. Rather over-priced plate lunches, half-way decent bar food and small markets with limited selections if you even have the means to prepare your own food have been the only options until last week. Four miles down the road from Hanalei, The Mediterranean Gourmet and Bistro in Haena opened at the 48-unit Hanalei Colony Resort.
