Maui’s Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, is celebrating the completion of a renovation to its signature restaurant Humuhumunukunukuapua’a, now dubbed Humuhumu.
Representing the latest phase of a recent US$70 million resort refresh, Humuhumu officially celebrated its reopening in February with a grand charity event for approximately 200 attendees in support of the local Boys & Girls Club of Maui.
The event debuted Humuhumu’s refreshed design – the restaurant sits atop a fresh water lagoon, while native Ohia woods form the restaurant’s modern Hawaiian details, which represent a subtle nod to ocean themes including voyaging. A Polynesian thatch-roof completes the design.
During the event, managing director Tom Donovan presented a check for US$20,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Maui. The funds were generated through ticket sales to the event, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the charity.
Humuhumu is open nightly for dinner from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., serving Chef Mike Lofaro’s Hawaii Seasonal Cuisine. Reservations are recommended.
