Visit Hawaii Island: Beach Tree

On our last night of our stay at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka`upulehu, we were treated to a beachfront dinner at Beach Tree, where guests dine on Italian and Mediterranean dishes while gazing at the gorgeous views and listening to beautiful Hawaiian music.

Complimentary veggie sticks with ranch dressing were given to the kids, but once the complimentary Focaccia and Pesto came out, everyone devoured that (and once again, my middle son declared he would not eat dessert, but only bread - that is until the dessert came out).

Keiki menus are available at Beach Tree, and kids 4 and under can enjoy a complimentary meal with the purchase of an adult entree. My kids liked their meals, and my husband had an Onaga dish - a special of the night, which he liked as well

I had the Mascarpone, Prosciutto, Local Arugula, and Parmigiano Reggiano Pizza, which was the pizza recommended by our server, Tehani, and it was scrumptious! My husband had a couple of slices and he agreed. Simple, fresh ingredients on an oven-fired crust made with flour imported from Italy resulted it one of the most delicious pizzas I had in a while. The saltiness of the prosciutto and the creaminess of the mascarpone was perfection. I also had a side of the Tuscan Fries (pizza and fries just seem to go well together), and they were crispy, flavorful bites of potatoes.

I had such a hard time choosing a dessert, but ultimately I decided upon the bon bons after getting input from our Tehani. The dessert, which is inspired by a similar dessert from the Batik Room at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, was delivered to the table enveloped in a cloud of dry ice. They were such a treat! Every one in my family got to try at least one of the bite-size sweets.

My husband and middle son shared the Beach Tree Banana Split; my oldest had the chocolate fudge cake, and my youngest had the ice cream.

And just when we thought we couldn't eat another bite, we were given a little basket full of Zeppole. YUM!

Service was excellent at Beach Tree. Tehani, was not only very prompt and friendly, but she was also very knowledgeable about the menu, explaining to us what the different dishes were and how they were prepared.  Andrew, one of the managers, also came by our table to ensure we were having a great meal (which we were).

The views were gorgeous, the service was stellar, and the food was simply fantastic. The dinner at Beach Tree was my personal favorite of our getaway!

Stunning views!
