The Montage Kapalua Bay, is a five-star resort with private residences, situated overlooking Kapalua Bay.  The grounds are home to one of my favorite spots on the whole island, the Cliff House.  When I was growing up, I would accompany my father to meetings there.  In spite of being bored at the meetings, the journey always thrilled me, because I knew we would be swimming in the crystal clear waters below as soon as he finished.

The Cliff House is usually only available for private rental, so this pop-up bar and lounge provides one

The Hōkūleʻa returns to Kapalua, Maui

After three years of sailing around the world, the Hōkūleʻa is returning to Honolua Bay, Maui.

Back on May 1, 1976, the Hōkūleʻa set off from Honolua Bay on it's inaugural sail to chart the course to Tahiti.  I was fortunate enough to be there, along with my father, Duke, to witness their departure for, what was to be, an historic voyage and the beginning of a movement to Mālama Honua, or care for our island earth.

Now, some 41 years later, the Hōkūleʻa has returned to Honolua Bay on the Mahalo, Hawai'i Sail.  The Polynesian Voyaging Society (PVS) has announced that this will be a six month journey throughout the

Back on May 1, 1976, my father took me to Honolua Bay to see the Hōkūleʻa embark on its maiden voyage to Tahiti.  Several of his childhood friends were crew members on this double hulled voyaging canoe, named after the star of gladness, and we watched as they left the Bay setting sail to chart the course of their ancestors.  I was quite young, and the memories come in flashes, so I don't recall the size of the crowd back then, but my father tells me it was a fairly small gathering.

Since that time, the Hōkūleʻa has celebrated 40 years of voyaging, been proclaimed Hawaii's first state treasure, and has been blessed by the Dalai Lama

The Cliff House has long been one of my favorite spots on all of Maui, having first spent time at the historic site with my father prior to the hotel being built.  

Now, Montage Kapalua Bay is partnering with Veuve Cliquot Champagnes and Chef David Viviano for a one of a kind experience.  There's no better place to watch the sunset, all the while enjoying tasty pupus including oysters, poke, local surfing goat cheese, and bubbles...lots and lots of bubbles.
