Twilight at Kalāhuipua‘

Steeped in genuine aloha, this intimate kanikapila (jam session) is not to be missed. Each month during the full moon, music lovers bring blankets and folding chairs to the oceanfront lawn at the Eva Parker Woods Cottage. ‘Ukulele and guitar players gather on the lanai to talk story and play their favorite tunes.

Dine Like Royalty This Holiday Season

Dining and Celebrations

Legend has it Kalāhuipua—with its abundance of fish ponds—was once the source of fresh catch for Kamehameha the Great, the first ruler of the Kingdom of Hawaii. Still known for its plentiful bounty today, we set the bar for organic, locally-sourced cuisine guided by Hawaii Island’s natural surroundings. We'll lead you on a seasonal culinary adventure filled with fresh, sustainable and celebratory fare.
