The Rest of Hawaii

No, I’m not back in Hawaii. I wish! Just backlogging all my photos…

Roaming around the island until dinner time…

808 Bistro, recommended by Jason’s colleague, right down to the bottle of wine. Mediocre food, wine was pretty good though.

The next morning, I just HAD to get my fresh coconut before the end of our trip. I love fresh coconuts!

Killed some more time by relaxing poolside at the hotel and then off to Gazebo, a cute little restaurant right off of the Napili Shores.

What tourists don’t know is to order your food to go and just eat it right on the beach. Who wants to wait an hour in line?! Plus, you don’t have anyone blocking the gorgeous views.

Checked out Whalers Village

We weren’t even hungry, but we stopped by the Hula Grill for one last mai tai and some coconut shrimp. The floor was filled with sand, to emulate being at the beach.

And then, FINALLY. Koiso. We’ve been trying to eat at this sushi restaurant multiple times and boy, was the wait and hype worth it. The place seats only 15(!) people and is run by a sweet couple.

Jason and I couldn’t stop ordering and stuffed ourselves silly, knowing it’d be a long time before we come back or eat fish this fresh.

And to end on a sweet note, a house made custard encased in soft mochi. Loved the packaging.

Oh wait! Our flight was delayed. Woo hoo! One extra night in Maui! If there’s any place I’d want a delayed or cancelled flight, it’d be in Hawaii.

Unfortunately, we had to wait at the airport for at least 2 hours and then finally shuttled to the newly renovated Hyatt

It was pitch black by the time we checked in the night before, so I had no idea our view was this spectacular. 

That view was what I was expecting at Westin, but instead we had this.

So a delayed flight and a comped fancy 18th floor room gave me the view I was expecting. Thank you very much.

The food on the other hand, not so much. An all-you-can-eat buffet is rarely a good thing. I stuck with as much fresh fruit as possible.

Unfortunately, there weren’t anymore delayed flights. Back to the airport and back to San Francisco

Hawaii was the epitome of relaxing: eat, beach and repeat. Loved it and would definitely go back.
