Love Potion: 4 Reasons Outrigger Reef is the Ultimate Spot for Romance this Valentine's Day
With candy hearts and adorable gift-giving, Valentine's Day is oh-so-much fun. And from cocktails (think elderflower and rosé champagne) to the perfect musical backdrop, we've got just the place to celebrate in (romantic) style.
Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort's famed Kani Ka Pila Grille has long been a spot for the best in not only live music—but the best in traditional Hawaiian music, too, including Grammy Award-winning musicians stopping by for jam sessions. With a new stage and enhanced seating in a backyard-meets-modern setting, this oceanside spot brings a warm, intimate vibe perfect for romance-ing.
Love Potion Cocktailing
And say hello to the ultimate in date-night-out romance while dining al fresco with Kani Ka Pila Grille's limited edition Love Potion cocktail.
A locally sourced "FY Gin" gin base is complemented with elderflower for a fresh garden aroma and then topped off with rosé champagne and a special garnish of iced rose petals and strawberry-coated rim. The Love Potion will be the star of the show, but the Ultimate Valentine's Day Menu from acclaimed Chef Rey Baysa follows suit. Enjoy a unique surf and turf entree with a steamed Maine lobster tail paired with a grilled striploin and herbed garlic butter for $38. And then dessert is a necessity, of course (we recommend the pineapple crème Brule!).
A Fresh New Scene
Extend the evening of romance and stay the night. With a new $80 million refresh, Outrigger Reef is back—and more beautiful than ever. Newly appointed guest rooms give an airy, beach-house vibe with local Hawaiian art as accents (try the penthouse suite for sweeping ocean views and extra romance). And the art extends throughout the resort, and a unique lantern-lit experience greets you on arrival for the ideal start to your stay.
The Heart of Romance
From complimentary activities like lei-making and Ukulele lessons to famed surf breaks like Kaiser's and Fours just a short paddle away for a little adventure (one of the keys to romance!), Outrigger Reef is the spot for all things cool and cultured in Waikiki. Or go for other great date spots like the famed Waikiki Aquarium and an epic catamaran ride—or stay put on the golden sands of Waikiki Beach right in front of the resort for day-lounging on beachside cabanas and sunset-view cocktails.
