Happy Birthday to the Shops at Mauna Lani!



The Shops at Mauna Lani will be celebrating its fifth anniversary at the Mauna Lani Resort on Hawaii Island Sunday, June 12 with festivities from 1 to 4 p.m.

Live entertainment includes the Te `E`a o Te Turama Polynesian dance halau (group) and popular musicians “Tava & Friends”, and the “Pomai Brown Ohana”. It’s an event the entire family will enjoy with numerous Hawaiian cultural activities also planned, including: coconut weaving/husking, lei making, hula lessons and ipu (gourd) making.

The pastry chefs at Tommy Bahamas are preparing their signature Pina Colada Cake for all guests to enjoy at the end of the day.

The Shops at Mauna Lani opened in June 2006 and quickly gained high marks as a premium luxury shopping destination on Hawaii Island’s Kohala Coast. The Shops at Mauna Lani also are a large part of the Big Island Film Festival as event hosts and sponsors

In addition to the many lovely shops and a grocery store, the center is home to three outstanding restaurants—

Monstera Noodles & Sushi, is a hip, casual "izakaya-style" restaurant offering Japanese pub food and sushi from owners Norio Yamamoto and Wes Monty. Yamamoto is a successful sushi chef with more than two decades of experience with discriminating employers such as Ritz-Carlton, Mandarin Oriental and The Fairmont Orchid (where he had a restaurant named after him.) The restaurant caters to the residential market with a menu built upon fresh local ingredients.
