Nestled among the lush foliage of rolling hills and a beautiful beachfront, in the midst of a century-old pineapple plantation, this resort provides that rare opportunity to experience a different view of Hawaii.
The Terrace - The Terrace restaurant features a plantation-inspired design with a green and gold and textured fabrics to reinforce the connection with the landscape. Slow-moving fans and wood screens illustrate the relaxed pace of island life, a sense of place that is peaceful and verdant.
Facing the pool and ocean on the ground level, this venue features direct views of the flowering gardens at the center of the property. There are a series of family-style tables to enhance the sense of gathering. The casual setting is enhanced by an expanded lanai enclosed in glass and by images and architectural details of Maui's plantations. The Terrace is open daily for breakfast.
The Banyan Tree - The Banyan Tree, the hotel's signature award-winning restaurant, features a new design incorporating a destination outdoor bar and lounge with a covered terrace with dramatic views of the Pacific Ocean, the island of Moloka'i and the Pailolo Channel. The seasonal worldly menu showcases Hawaii's abundant harvests and fresh catches. As the terminus of a path from the heart of the property to the edge of the sea, The Banyan Tree represents a culmination in the journey - a return to the edge of the ocean. The Banyan Tree is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday.
Please visit the The Banyan Tree for Wine Wednesdays and enjoy 50% off all bottles of wine on the entire wine list with entrée purchase. Only offered on Wednesdays.
Kai Sushi - Kai Sushi, offering the island's freshest sushi and Japanese cuisine, features a new restaurant space to the left of the lobby, with a design inspired by the story of the native Hawaiians' arrival across the sea. Kai Sushi features hand-carved ceiling beams that recall the shapes of the outrigger canoes. The glowing back of the sushi bar and carved wood columns are inspired by traditional Hawaiian art forms in print. The warm tones of wood, woven grasses, honed plaster and gold-hued stone set a natural tableau for the bright colors of the fresh sushi delicacies.
Alaloa Lounge - Named Best Lobby Lounge on the island by the readers of Maui No Ka Oi Magazine, The Alaloa Lounge (formerly The Lobby Lounge) at The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua offers an extensive menu of specialty cocktails, domestic and imported beers, premium spirits and signature appetizers and desserts. The Alaloa Lounge also now offers a casual lunch menu.
With its breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, The Alaloa Lounge is the place to view the Maui sunset, enjoy an informal lunch or, from December to April, enjoy whale-watching. A newly-expanded spacious lanai offers outdoor seating or guests may choose to sit inside to enjoy the entertainment in the evenings.
The Alaloa Lounge bar design takes inspiration from the volcanic birth of the islands where lava meets the sea. A point of arrival for the resort, this indoor/outdoor venue spills onto a terrace overlooking the pool gardens below and ocean vista beyond. There is a black lava stone wall forming a back-bar, with a brilliant red ribbon of light inspired by the flow of lava, and by the long path or Alaloa from the mountains toward the sea. The illuminated onyx bar with its carved wood details and hand-blown glass pendants sets a warm glow in the heart of the lobby, long after sunset has faded.
The Pool Bar & Cafe - Offers tropical drinks, smoothies, appetizers, sandwiches and salads at the bar or served to the guest's chaise lounge.
Twice daily, the pool servers present complimentary fresh Maui pineapple to guests. If you are lounging in the pool, don't worry about being left out; the servers will enter the water fully dressed to serve you.
The Beach House - Sip on tropical delights while enjoying the waves, surfers and sometimes, the whales. More than 40 fully-grown coconut palms form a natural canopy over this beachfront restaurant where guests delight in a selection of tropical cocktails and fresh, light fare.
