"With the magnificent Pacific views and elegant Maui condos along the beach, our stay here was magical."
A few weeks ago, we shared our top five reasons why Maui is Hawaii’s most romantic island. A lot of people agreed with our choices but many also wondered why we didn’t include the many of the island’s romantic restaurants. Here at Destination Resorts Hawaii, we aim to please so here are our top five most romantic dining experiences on Maui.
If you are in Lahaina, you will not get a closer seat by the beach than this restaurant. Request a table outdoors or by the windows and you’ll be treated to a fantastic ocean view accompanied by cool breezes. What we love about Pacific’o’s location is its proximity to all the fun Front Street offers without being in the center of the buzz. 808-667-4341
Do you truly want to get away from it all? Head “upcountry” to Kula Lodge. The elevation at 3200 feet provides for fantastic panoramic views of Maui’s mountains and ocean. It’s also a lot cooler in Kula making it the perfect excuse for keeping each other warm if the fireplace in the restaurant isn’t enough. Remember, it takes awhile to get upcountry so leave with plenty of time and get there early to catch the sunset during dinner. 808-878-1535
Named after Hawaii’s state fish, Humuhumunukunukuapua’a (fondly known as Humuhumu) fulfills everyone’s island dream of dining in a thatched-roof restaurant floating over a lagoon. Just steps away from our villas and condos, it’s been voted “Best Table for Two” by Islands magazine and when you get there, you will see why. If it’s a truly special occasion, request “Table 72” and let them know you can come as early as 5:30pm. They won’t hold this special table for anyone but you’ll increase your chances by requesting it, having a really unique reason for needing it and getting there first. If you don’t get it, they still seat the best tables to guests that come first. 808-875-1234
Private Chef Dining
What can be more romantic than having your own private chef come to your villa and cooking a meal that was tailored just for you? Imagine not having to make reservations, waiting at the host stand, feeling rushed and having to drive back to your hotel late into the night. Having a private chef come to your villa allows for more privacy and intimacy that can’t be received at a public restaurant. Setting it up is easy, just give us a call and we’ll take care of the rest. 800-880-1883
Picnic at the beach
Didn’t plan in advance and need a quick plan b? Maui is filled with beautiful beaches and parks - the perfect setting for a romantic picnic. Grab your beach towels and stop by Foodland to pick up poke, sushi rolls, crispy baguette, your favorite cheese assortment or any other of its pre-made food for an easy dinner spread. Make sure to bring your Maikai discount card that is provided to all our guests and enjoy a romantic, outdoor picnic for two.
