Inspired by a bounty of rich and diverse local farms throughout the islands, La Hiki’s plant-forward menu is rooted in fresh, sustainable cuisine as one of the Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina’s stellar dining destinations.
La Hiki is located alongside the inviting Ohana Pool and offers open-air dining in the heart of the resort. In the morning, La Hiki features an alluring blend of traditional and innovative breakfast offerings. Customers also rave about La Hiki’s famed Sunday Brunch for All Seasons.
“In the afternoons, guests can relax with a wholesome lunch with views of the pools and the crystal blue ocean,” says Lucy Cao, general manager of La Hiki at Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina.
The prix fixe Brunch for All Seasons is available Sundays from 11 am. to 3 p.m. for $79 per person and includes an opening course of Blueberry Scone & Chef’s Choice Amuse; second course featuring a Poke Sampler, Sashimi, Cocktail Shrimp, Oysters and chef-crafted sauces; a third course with La Hiki’s Benny, Bacon, Fried Rice, Herb-crusted Prime Rib and succulent Steamed Lobster Tail; and a Chef’s Selection of Dessert Trio to wrap up the delectable meal.
“Brunch for All Seasons at Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina does not disappoint,” Cao says. “My tip would be to make sure you leave room for dessert as we feature a wonderful rotating chef’s selection of desserts, such as Raspberry Cream Puff, Chocolate Mousse Tulip Cup and Lilikoi Cheesecake. La Hiki also features live music during brunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., creating a beautiful atmosphere in our open-air restaurant. We highly recommend making reservations in advance.”
Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina continues to ensure that guest and employee health and safety remains the top priority. It has introduced “Lead with Care,” a global health and safety program that sets out clear procedures that educate and empower employees to take care of guests and each other. Through “Lead with Care,” Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina focuses on enhancing cleanliness, guest comfort and safety, and employee training.
“Like many restaurants, we have reimagined our Sunday brunch from a buffet-style approach to a thoughtfully curated prix fixe menu featuring our most popular dishes,” Cao says. “Our culinary team is honored by the continuous accolades surrounding the Brunch for All Seasons. While we have reimagined the concept since the resort reopened in March, the brunch continues to be a favorite among our resort guests and the local community.
“The menu selection, featuring chilled seafood and sashimi, prime rib, lobster, chef’s Benedict, and much more is a favorite and has been described as pure indulgence. Also, since brunch is a wonderful time to get together with family and friends, our guests appreciate the kids prix fixe menu, which is also available with the same courses, but in smaller portions; or, guests can select from a separate keiki menu.”
