We ate breakfast every morning at the buffet and it was delicious!. We had dinner at Makana Terrace on our last night and the service could have been a lot better. We hardly ever saw our waitress and it took forever to get our food. We ordered wedge salads, which weren't that great, I had one of their soups, which... More

This is The St. Regis. They have a beautiful location with great views and decent food, but the service is a bit too slow with pick up. Maybe they were short staffed, but honestly with the prices, I shouldn't care. This is still worth a visit, but come for the views and set your own pace. They were very kind... More

The Melaka Terrace overlooks hanalei bay and the jagged north coast mountains. Be there for beautiful sunsets, great food and prices to match

It's hard to find a better spot for breakfast. The spacious outdoor terrace at the Makana Terrace wraps around a sizeable part of the hotel and offers fabulous views of Hanalei Bay and the rugged mountains in behind. The absolute best light is first thing in the morning as the sun rises - do make sure to get out here... More

We stopped at the Makana Terrace restaurant of the St. Regis Hotel to celebrate an upcoming Birthday. The look and feel echoed our experience over 15 years ago when celebrating a wedding anniversary at the time. We both ordered the Mahi Mahi, the coffee, completing the meal with the fruit tart for dessert. The quality is still top notch after... More

The sushi platter was amazing- very big!!! Beautiful breads and butter selections. But the amazing views are what made it so incredibly special.

The breakfast buffet here was fantastic! Loved the special weekend options (coconut French toast, green smoothie and juice, and tropical julienne salad). Dinner is great as well. The views are unparalleled.

Overall pretty average. For the prices paid, it just wasn't up to par. Our wine wasn't available, so had to substitute off the bat with something off menu and was told it would be similar. It wasn't - we ordered a jammy Pinot. This was dry and austere and the sommelier gave us a bum steer. It happens, but it's... More

This place is pretty expensive, so if you are going to eat here, make sure to do it when it's light out! We had a 7:30 meal one night and the sun had already set. We didn't know what we were missing until we had breakfast there the next day. The view is amazing!
