Day 4 - Hawaii Honeymoon

We woke up and said our goodbyes to our beautiful hotel, got some Coffee Bean (conveniently located just outside the hotel) and headed to the airport for Maui.

The plane ride took maybe 20 minutes. The flight attendant was taking drink orders and we were joking that if anyone got anything, they had no time to finish.

We were starving and someone recommended Da Kitchen. Super delish.  We had our first Spam dish! It was deep fried and rolled in seaweed and rice, like sushi.

After being energized from lunch, we drove to the the Four Seasons and were greeted with a glorious welcome of lei's & cool towelettes. Our room wasn't quite ready so we hung out in a hut on the grounds and they texted us when our room was ready.  Entering the room was as exciting as Christmas morning; a champagne and chocolate fondue welcome set up surrounded by the sickest suite. This was the most beautiful hotel room(s) I have ever stayed in.  

Once we got settled in, we headed next door to the Grand Wailea to book our spa day for later in the week. Then we came back and sat for a drink and watched the hula entertainment. There is a man who blows a conch shell and runs around the entire property lighting all the torches. This happens every night here.
For dinner we went to a place up the road called Monkeypod. We got their fire-roasted garlic, chili and rosemary chicken wings that came with tzatziki sauce. This was hands down the best I've ever had. It was so fresh and so good. I practically started drinking it! I got poke tacos (raw and crispy and hit the spot) with garlic truffle oil fries (good enough). David got the fish tacos, a combo of butterfish, ahi and mahi. He devoured that and the banana cream pie.
