Designed by renowned Tiki architect George "Pete" Wimberly, the soaring, sheltering roofline of the resort's signature Don the Beachcomber Restaurant perfectly sets a tropical theme. Hawaiian music wafts through the dining areas, flowing past the shaded, waterside tables. Don't be surprised if you are treated to views of spinner dolphins, or starting in late October, migrating humpback whales whose breathtaking aerial performances bring the whole bay to a standstill. The dining is as spectacular as the view - a fusion of Asian influence, European technique, and the finest, freshest local ingredients inspire the mouth-watering flavors at Don the Beachcomber Restaurant and Mai Tai Bar.
