I just got back from Maui and I kept track of what we ate and how much it costs. I have to preface this post by saying I didn’t really go crazy with cocktail/wine ordering and we are really not big desert people, it was a quick trip, so it’s kind of a guideline.
I have been staying a lot in luxury all-inclusives a lot lately, so I needed a bit of reality check what happens when you have to pay for all your drinks and meals. We all know Hawaii is expensive – but are we talking what I call “Tahiti Money” (I call Tahiti money anything that is hitting a $1000/day mark), or is it still more affordable than French Polynesia?
So here we go: 1st when we got to the hotel we had a fridge but nothing in it so we had to run over and buy some waters/sodas:
I have to note this dish was excellent – well worth the $42.00 price tag. Seared sashimi in sauce of shitake mushrooms ginger black and white sesame, chives and yukon gold mash. Yum!
Lunch was great – poolside at the cabana. There is a $25 charge for a private cabana,but I left a $25 cash tip on it – so it evens out.
