No title - expert review
Set on 50 acres of hillside, within an expanse of Cook pines, ironwood trees and a white-sand beach, this resort takes the art of relaxation seriously. Avoiding the gold and marble traditionally associated with the Ritz-Carlton chain, designers opted for rattan, soft colors, and local art, making it...

If butler-drawn baths and brocade drapery are your cup of tea, book a room at this elegant hillside property. Although not set directly on the sand, the resort does command views of D. T. Fleming Beach, and Honolua Bay - and the multilevel pool and two hot tubs are open 24 hours. The grounds are pri...

If you've never tried foie gras ice cream, don't be shy. The menu is daring but delectable. Nothing is prepared as it should be: the priciest dish, lobster and scallops, is a salad, and the fish of Hawai'ian royalty, moi, is served atop Indian-spice lentils with a yogurt sauce. We recommend placing ...
