With fresh and flavorful options featuring Pacific Rim flair available during breakfast, lunch and dinner, the exquisite fine-dining selections served in a unique oceanside setting makes Hau Tree Lanai at The New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel a must-try for memorable meals.

For a limited time, Hau Tree Lanai is offering a special “Buyout Under the Stars” promotion that allows guests with a group of at least 80 people celebrating a special occasion, graduation, wedding or corporate function to enjoy buffet service from the newly renovated Sans Souci Room during dinner (5:30-9:30 p.m.), Monday-Thursday without having to buy out the restaurant space.

The Supreme Menu ($120 per person, not including tax and gratuity) elevates the experience with local favorites including Roast Crisp Duck with Plum Sauce, Seafood Stir-Fry with Black Bean Sauce, Sherry Chicken, Misoyaki Butterfish, Alaskan Crab Legs with Pernod Butter and Catch of the Day with Roasted Garlic Chili Cream Sauce.

Guests are also invited to enjoy Hau Tree Lanai’s cuisine during traditional breakfast, lunch and dinner service daily. To start the day off right, enjoy a robust Acai Bowl ($18) that is built with Greek yogurt, Anahola Granola, banana and berries.

For lunch, order up a fresh Papaya Chicken Salad ($20) as diced poached chicken breast is seasoned with Dijon mustard and mayonnaise and served atop half an island fresh papaya crown along with sliced fruit. Classic Eggs Benedict ($20) is another popular choice that features turkey, Canadian bacon and poached eggs on grilled English muffins topped with hollandaise sauce served with breakfast potatoes. This must-try classic was voted “Best Eggs Benedict” by 111-Hawaii for 2017 and 2018.

Dinner at Hau Tree Lanai couples the cuisine with an unforgettable ambiance, and diners can reel in Fresh Kona Lobster ($59) as the whole live lobster is accompanied by jumbo shrimp, scallop and island fish with a Boursin sweet chili cream sauce. Sticking with scintillating seafood, try Chef’s Island Fusion ($48) as steamed fish is prepared fresh off the auction block with wine and garlic butter, a tomato compote, sauteed Alii mushrooms and leeks all topped with a Chiffonade basil-and-pepper infused oil.
