Though it's across the street from Kuhio Beach, the Hyatt is actually considered oceanfront, as there's no resort between it and the Pacific Ocean. An open-air atrium with three levels of shopping, a two-story waterfall, and free nightly live entertainment make this one of the liveliest lobbies anywhere. Its 10,000-square-foot, two-level luxury spa, Na Hoola, has 16 treatment rooms and an array of specialty therapies including the Lomi Wawea, a traditional healing massage
focusing on the feet. Dining options include Japengo, which offers Pacific Rim cuisine in a warm dining area with communal tables and an interactive sushi bar; Shor, which has sustainable seafood and outdoor seating; and Swim, a poolside bar and lounge. Authentic daily on-site activities, including lei making and hula dancing, are led by a Native Hawaiian cultural practitioner. Aloha Friday evening performances showcase Polynesian tattooing, and a Samoan fire-knife performance. And in November 2013, the hotel began hosting a farmer's market from 4 to 8 pm every Thursday in the Pualeilani Atrium Shops with vendors selling local produce and wares.
