Humuhumunukunukuapua’s is one of the amazing restaurants at the Grand Wailea Maui Resort. This exquisite restaurant is named after Hawaii’s state fish, the beautiful, colorful and tasty, Humuhumunkunukuapua, pronounced, “who-moo-who-moo-noo-koo-noo-koo-ah-pooah-ah.” Impress your friends with this tidbit of trivia. Humuhumunukunukuapua  is actually the longest word in Hawaii. 

Spectacular views of this Hawaiian resort enhance your dining experience. To make things even better, it is located right by the stunning Wailea Beach. Everywhere you look is a breathtaking site to see. You’ll be surrounded by 40 lush acres of oceanfront paradise. While you’re at the resort you might want to enjoy other amenities like exploring their private art collection, enjoying a round of golf, or simply relaxing by the pool. It’s like you stepped into a picture-perfect tropical paradise that couldn’t get better. But it does. You are in for one of the best meals of your life.

Both locals and visitors alike rave about everything on the Humuhumunukunkuapua’s menu. It is one of the Island’s signature dining hot spots that is perfectly located by a beachfront lagoon. The exquisite mouthwatering menu features delicious fare prepared with the freshest locally sourced ingredients. Many are said to be grown right on their property. Talk about fresh and fabulous.

First things first. Check out the unique appetizer menu. Be careful not to fill up on them…you’ll want to leave plenty of room for dinner.
