Oceanfront dining never gets old—especially when it’s at Humuhumunukunukuapua‘a.

Oceanfront dining never gets old—especially when it’s at Humuhumunukunukuapua‘a. Recently refreshed as part of Grand Wailea’s $70 million resortwide renovation, Humu, as it’s known for short, offers open-air views of the shimmering sea and West Maui that are simply jaw-dropping. Its design emulates a traditional Hawaiian hale, with dark bold ‘ōhi‘a wood rafters and panels, and richly textured thatched roofs that wonderfully contrast with the elegant blues of the nearby beach and sky. Back in the kitchen, lauded toque Mike Lofaro puts a fresh, light, seasonal spin on Hawai‘i regional cuisine. Try the Hokkaido scallops ($24) or the crispy mahimahi with forbidden rice ($42) to satiate any seaside cravings. And be sure to make your reservation for sunset. 3850 Wailea Alanui Drive, Wailea, Maui, 800.888.6100
