Start with a taste to suit every palate and every occasion, mix in daily menus showcasing curated ingredients sourced both locally and from around the world, and top it all off with stunning ocean views. That’s Executive Chef Patrick Heymann’s secret to creating his world-famous signature coastal cuisine found only at Kohanaiki.
“The secret is to not over prepare such fine ingredients, but rather to let them be the star of the show. We think great food can be interesting as well as have a familiar feel to it.” Patrick Heymann

Executive Chef, Kohanaiki

At Kohanaiki, we strive to put pretty much anything and everything at your fingertips. Want a special something flown in overnight? Need a special ingredient for your vegan, gluten-free, dish? It’s probably already waiting for you, as our staff are highly sensitive to anticipating your needs.

From exquisite bites and sips at the Beach Bar or a casual dinner at the Beach Restaurant to the most sophisticated dining events at Kōnane, the chophouse and sushi bar at the clubhouse, you’ll discover tastes to suit every palate and daily menus that feature only the finest ingredients from around the world.

You’ll also discover inventive dishes expertly prepared using wholesome ingredients sourced right here on the island. The freshest fish are caught every day, just offshore in the deep waters of Ono Lane. Everything from ahi, ono, mahi mahi, opakapaka, and uku, to onaga, monchong, and opah are line-caught daily and delivered fresh (sometimes by canoe) on the day they are served. Mixed greens and coveted Kona coffee come from local upcountry growers, while our own on-property certified organic community farm yields a tremendous variety of just-picked fruits, vegetables, and herbs for use in Kohanaiki’s tempting dishes. Of course, the farm fare is always available to members to prepare gourmet meals at home.

No matter their origin, Kohanaiki’s ingredients translate quite deliciously into simply mouthwatering cuisine.

Hele Mai’ai! Let’s Eat!

“Kohanaiki’s culinary philosophy can be summed up in a singular promise: Make use of the best ingredients, no matter where they come from.” Patrick Heymann
