“Posh and worth it”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Just magnificent food. Very expensive. Superb service. Elegant and sophisticated. A place to go to once in a hotel that is one of the best in the world. Get a table by the window looking out on the Great Lawn. Very romantic. Just heavenly.

“Ideal for Special Occasion”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We stay at Manele Bay, but always reserve one evening for dinner at the Lodge Dinning Room. It is understandably quite expensive, but the romantic table by the fireplace, excellent food, and superior service add a highlight to our vacation.

Plan to arrive early enough, and before sunset, for a romantic walk through the garden and orchid house behind the Lodge. Bring a stoll or light wrap most of the year.

“Fun and beautiful!”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

We sat in front of the fireplace in the great room and ordered dinner--good food and service but expensive as expected. Nice setting and no one rushed us out. Enjoyed the piano playing early in the evening. We'd to it again!

“Tropical Lodge with elegant atmosphere, excellent food”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We had a lovely dinner in the Terrace at the Lodge at Koele. The food was creative, delicious and presented in a beautiful manner. The evening sunset was gorgeous as we dined on fresh caught ono. Our heirloom tomato brushetta was exceptional as was the tempura sashimi roll with pickled ginger. Loved the Terrace food, atmosphere and service!

“A delightful start to an evening...you may not leave.”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

We went to the happy hour on the evening that the offer was 50% off food and drinks. The food was yummy and the drinks inventive. Although the regular prices are rather high, the happy hour prices make it a bargain for the quality.
One night we wanted to order a couple of items off the restaurant menu and our server was able to accomodate our request for the most delicious short ribs and silkly sweet corn chowder we have ever eaten. These items were not discounted but worth every penny.

Greetings from The Lodge at Koele! I truly appreciate your valuable feedback and to learn that you enjoyed the promotion at The Bar. The Happy Hour is a great opportunity to enjoy the Lodge's cozy setting and savor fantastic drinks and delicious food. The short ribs are one of our signature items, and one of my personal favorites. Thanks again for your great review. I hope to see you again soon!
