Located in the upscale neighborhood of Wailea, the new Andaz resort offers guests and locals exceptional dining options.
Housing five eateries, diners have a wide variety of restaurants to choose from.
The Ka’ana Kitchen offers three meals a day focusing on local farm to table experiences. The huge morning brunch buffet is extensive and incorporates dishes rich in island flavors such as steamed pork buns with scrambled eggs and Kalua pork benedict. Also included is a huge variety of fresh squeezed juices. Dinner options come in a variety of menu choices; Ka’ana Classics with three to four chicken, fish and steak options and three other menu columns arranged to feature local purveyors of ingredients such as Bryan Otani local farmers, Kona Cold Lobsters, and Surfing Goat Dairy. The open design and patio offer views of the infinity-edge pool, lagoon and ocean.
The resort also houses Morimoto Maui, by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, focusing on a mix of Japanese, Western and Hawaiian traditions. Designed by The Rockwell Group, the restaurant resembles a modern Japanese beach house with French doors opening to 180-degree beach and ocean views. The interior features an eight seat sushi and sashimi bar, black tile, teakwood, and Japanese sculptures and decorative lighting throughout the space, while diners on the outside terrace can choose from tables or comfy booths to enjoy the views of Mokapu Beach and beyond. Diners can sample Morimoto signature dishes including crispy rock shrimp tempura, duck trio, Wagyu beef carpaccio and black braised cod or choose from dishes exclusively served at the Wailea location such as Maui onion soup, locally caught snapper, and Washimi flatiron steak.
Two poolside lounges also offer lunch and hand crafted cocktails utilizing the resort’s many fresh squeezed juices, the Bumbye Beach Bar and the Lehua Lounge. The beachfront Mokapu offers locally sourced snacks and coffee 24/7, and there is also a 24-hour market on property stocked with snacks, a coffee bar, ice cream and sundries.
