The Alaia was an ancient Hawaiian surfboard that had a round nose and a squared tail. The Alaia surfboard was often around 7 to 12 foot in length (similar to modern mid-length surfboards and longboards) and the fact that it was finless made it hard to control, requiring a skilled surfer to ride it in Hawaiian waves
At Alaia visitors can reap the bounty from the mauka to the makai, working with hand-selected fruits and vegetables from the resort farm to your table , letting the quality and simplicity of the ingredients speak for themselves.
The property’s transformation celebrate Hawai‘i’s natural beauty by incorporating materials such as local monkey pod, organic fabrics, indigenous plants, and hand-woven artisan carpets. The color palette is indicative of the resort’s surroundings—deep orange and red shades reflective of the iron-rich soil and the bountiful papayas growing on the property; the calming spectrum of blues, greens and creams seen in the waves juxtaposed against the sinuous grains of the natural hardwoods. The design celebrates the resort’s relationship with nature, incorporating these environmental elements in every detail throughout.
Known for its modern take on Hawaiian comfort fare, Alaia embraces the community through its support of nearby Kuilima Farms, telling their story through every plate, bite, and sip.
