Dinner in a Maui tree house for $1,200, and you get to set the menu
Treehouses aren’t always for kids. South Maui’s Hotel Wailea has created a private dining room in a treehouse overlooking the Pacific Ocean that comes with a private chef.
Nestled among mango and avocado trees, the restaurant features meals with five seasonal courses, depending on what you like.
An example of what one couple chose for a mid-August meal: It began with charred Brussel sprouts leaves with black truffles, followed by a medley of Kauai shrimp, Kona lobster and Manila clams. A pork belly summer roll and Kobe short rib followed. For dessert, the two chose a decadent chocolate dome.
At $1,200, the meal for two isn’t cheap, but it comes with pairings of wine from around the world — and a once-in-a-lifetime setting.
The hotel features 72 one-bedroom suites. Prices in September and October start at $479 a night.
Info: Hotel Wailea, 555 Kaukahi St., Wailea, Maui; (808) 874-0500.
