In the Waipouli, Kauai area, a new island-inspired restaurant and plantation-style spa have opened under new management at the Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort. Locally grown produce and freshly caught fish swathe the mouthwatering menu at the new Oasis on the Beach restaurant, while Spa by the Sea boasts an organic product-line. Both amenities aim to complement the resort’s naturally pristine atmosphere by incorporating Hawaii’s incredible natural resources.
The new Oasis on the Beach restaurant is a casual and tasteful culinary retreat, located just steps from the beach at Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort. It is the product of owner-operator Stefan Mandel with talented local chef Zack Sato bringing his expertise with local ingredients to the menu. Organic ingredients, over 80 percent of which are locally grown, are incorporated into a delightful, island-inspired menu. Examples of the delicious local fare include locally-caught fresh fish glazed in miso-butter and topped with crispy onion strings, or a local grass-fed rib-eye steak with a red wine sweet onion butter, over a taro mash and braised greens.
At the 5 p.m. happy hour, guests can watch the spectacular sunset and sip on refreshing ginger-lime infused Mojitos or classic Mai Tais.
Oasis on the Beach is open 2 p.m. to 9 p.m., Tuesdays through Sundays, with dinner service beginning at 5 p.m. Watch for lunch service to begin at a later date. For more information or reservations, call direct to (808) 822-9332.
Spa by the Sea offers guests a full-service spa, including an extensive menu of facials, massages and other pampering treatments. Nestled on the beachfront property of Kauai’s eastern shore, the 4,000 square-foot spa boasts services that are unique to Hawaii, while using only pure organic ingredients in its treatments.
Revitalize with a volcanic clay facial or lomi lomi massage, and repair sunburned skin with a Noni Body Wrap. Known for its legendary healing powers, the Hawaiian people use the juice of this tropical fruit to heal burns, soothe and tighten the skin. In this cooling and healing treatment, the body is soothed with Noni Gel then gently massaged with warm coconut milk for a healthy tropical glow. Open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, the plantation-style spa is a must-visit when vacationing at the Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort. For more information, log on to www.spabytheseakauai.com.
