A friendly, casual oasis, Sunset Lanai Lounge sits nestled on the lobby level above the Hau Tree Lanai Restaurant in Waikiki. This cocktail lounge offers gorgeous views, exotic tropical drinks and delec-table fare including appetizers. It is the ideal location to bring the gang to kick back and relax.

Among refreshing beverages available at the lounge is the Mai Tai ($11). This award-winning drink is crafted with Diamond Head Rum, Bacardi Amber, pineapple juice, Orgeat, sweet and sour mix and Orange Curacao.
