BEACH TREE BAR & LOUNGE AT FOUR SEASONS RESORT HUALĀLAI Steps away from the sand with panoramic ocean views, you can’t help but relax and relish the special mana (divine power) that seems tangible as soon as you take your seat at Beach Tree. This is the kind of place that becomes your go-to where you can expect friendly staff, great service and food each and every time—plus, the scenery is truly beautiful. You will want to have a drink in your hand to toast the surreal sunsets. Beach Tree has a nice selection of wines and local beers as well as chef-inspired cocktails. Choose from an array of bespoke libations with housemade mixers made with the freshest ingredients. The Nahi Wai begins with a base of Hawaiian chili pepper infused Casamigos Tequila to which housemade ginger sour is added and finished with a splash of fresh watermelon juice that balances the heat in this drink. And for something light and fizzy to cheers the day with, their Paradise Spritz is a perfect pick. It begins with a blend of Prosecco and Pinot Grigio creating the foundation for Campari and lilikoÿi (passion fruit) syrup, which is blended before garnishing with a candied hibiscus flower. When it comes to ordering food, you can’t go wrong with their Mahi Tacos, featuring a mango salsa sprinkled with cheddar cheese and finely shredded green cabbage that adds a refreshing crunch. For those with a sizable hunger, the Grass-Fed ‘BI’ Burger hits the spot with melted aged cheddar and perfectly cooked local beef served atop a brioche bun complemented with your choice of really good onion rings or french fries. And if you are in the mood for lighter fare, the Tsunami Poke Bowl with delectable crab, fresh daily catch, avocado, cucumber, sriracha, furikake, mayo and lime hits the spot. No matter what you choose to order, you will enjoy your time at this exceptional spot. Beach Tree Bar & Lounge is located at Four Seasons Resort Hualälai at historic Kaÿüpülehu. Complimentary valet parking for diners. Open daily from 11am to 10pm. Call (808) 325-8000 or visit www.fourseasons.com/hualalai for more information.
