This restaurant is located at a very nice secluded beach on the Kohala coast ( Mauna Lani area ) To park near by the restaurant (parking lot ) you need to be a owner/guest of the Mauna Lani resort area. Otherwise you need to walk...More

Napua is located on the beach by the Mauna Lani Beach Club, which has some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii. It is a perfect place to go for lunch. The food is outstanding, the service pretty good. They have particularly great french fries. The...More

Had a very nice dinner with my wife earlier this month. We both had seafood (of course...) and enjoyed the evening in a very nice semi-outdoor seating area. The service was excellent (even if the host was a bit ditzy on seating us). Good for...More

All 10 of us (including our 3 grandchildren) were treated like "Ohana" here. We've been coming to this area for decades-- before Napua evolved from the Mauna Lani's lunch spot on the beach. Owners are developing their own "farm to table" approach with a small...More

We had a nice lunch at this club. Very convenient and good food as well. Nothing special but cold beer, fish and chips, burger that was a bit overcooked. Anyways, its vacation so you don't have to be perfect.

The location, the atmosphere, and the service cannot be improved on. Our main courses were pretty close to perfect. The appetizer however, was underwhelming and its portion size was too small. At these prices there is no room for skimping on anything.

Yes easy to get to and they have a parking lot right there with a small ramp. I'd say a few days to a week for prime dining ours to make a reservation. And equally priced to most of the other mid-high range restaurants in... More

Like a delicious little secret, tucked away in a private ocean cove along the appetizing sands of Mauna Lani Resort is a Big Island restaurant called Napua, waiting for you to discover the foods of Hawai'i Island, shared with the kind of aloha that comes from those who know.
