The lounge is on the property of kuaui shores, a renovated motel. It is directly on the beach. Soothing live music, sometimes featuring hula, nightly. Terrific happy hour deals while waiting for the sun to go down. Only downside is that some of the residents...More

They probably do - or you can ask them. Tommy Bahama in mauna lani definately has a gluten free menu & the other great option is 'under the bodia tree' in mauna lani resort area too.
