SUNSET & STARS Romantic Dinner on the Beach â€œSunset & Starsâ€? romantic dinner on the beach! This dinner is created to your specific requests and served to you on a secluded beach area of the Kona Coast. You will meet with our chef to plan out your menu prior to your exclusive dinner evening. On your special day, you will be driven to your beach destination just in time to enjoy champagne and appetizers along with a beautiful Kona sunset.
Your meal will then be prepared and served by our dedicated staff while you relax at your ocean front table on the sand, watching the sun as it slowly slips away. Surrounded by tiki torches and candles, each course will be served with wine and your dinner will culminate with a decadent dessert just for the two of you . . . or perhaps a little something more!

With our complete granite counter outdoor kitchen and gas BBQ you can prepare that casual lunch or your evening dinner . . . umm, maybe fresh caught Hawai’ian Mahi Mahi with grilled pineapple or huli huli chicken. End the day enjoying a glass of wine around the lanai fire pit or relaxing in our garden jacuzzi.
