This One Of A Kind Restaurant In Hawaii Is Fun For The Whole Family
By Megan Shute|Published October 11, 2018
With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
Nestled on Oahu’s western shore, away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki is the small resort area of Ko Olina. While there are a few resorts here of note, the most well-known is Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa. The resort was designed with families in mind, which is probably why it was recognized as No.1 in the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2014 in the category of Top Family Hotel: USA.
With pool parties, movie nights, and a variety of kid’s entertainment as well as an adults-only pool bar, the entire family will be in bliss at Aulani. Unfortunately, it’s expensive. Really expensive. Luckily, there is Makahiki, an on-site restaurant open to both resort guests, tourists not staying at Aulani, and locals. This truly one-of-a-kind restaurant will wow the entire family, and you’ve got to see it to believe it.
Makahiki is located at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa at 92 Ali’inui Dr, Kapolei, HI 96707. The character breakfast is held from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., and dinner is served between 5 and 9 p.m. For more information, click here.
