1.What is your favorite city or region?
2. Favorite restaurants in Kihei?
Sansei for Panko crusted Ahi Rolls and a Mango Crab Salad Roll that can change your life. I love Kihei Caffe for banana macadamia nut pancakes and Humuhumunukunukuapua’a restaurant has the best fried rice.
3. Favorite stores:
The local farmers market on South Kihei Road for fruit and snacks, Cos Bar in Wailea for beauty products and I can’t resist the ABC Stores for souvenirs.
4. Favorite places to unwind
Hiking at Twin Falls or in the ‘Iao Valley and watching the sunset at Kalama Park. And its fun to drive up to Paia on the North Shore and watch the windsurfers kill it.
5. Favorite hotel lobby lounges?
The open-air Four Seasons Maui has hula dancing and live Hawaiian music in the bar. Grand Wailea’s lobby and bar area is surrounded by nine Botero sculptures and has an incredible view.
