Your LA Travel Diva nextcolumnist is headed for Maui, one of the most romantic islands in the Hawaiian archipelago. While we are looking forward to all our adventures, the most anticipated evening on our agenda is a dinner for two under the stars at the romance-swept Hale Piliahoa restaurant at the Sheraton Maui.
From Sheraton Maui
Located in a surreal setting of glowing tiki torches under a Maui moon, on the hotel’s exclusive Black Rock Lawn overlooking the blue Pacific, the dining venue oozes with passion. Even the name Hale Piliahoa speaks romance with Hale translated as home, and Piliahoa as “loving relationship and beloved companionship,” in Hawaiian.
Set on an elegantly-set table, the multi-course dinner is served catered by a culinary team and personal butler, who also will help you with drinks and menu choices.
If you’re headed to Maui for an engagement celebration, anniversary, honeymoon or other special occasion, be sure to book a dinner under the stars at the Hale Piliahoa. And if you’re a guy planning on proposing, well this is a no-brainer, take her to Maui and put the ring in a Mai Tai for her to find before dinner as the sun sets over this magical island.
