Organic amenities on Kauai

Here's something interesting that came across my desk recently ...

Organic Amenities Arrive at Waipouli Beach Resort
A new garden-inspired restaurant plus a new day spa feature ingredients made from Hawaii’s natural resources
The Garden Isle lives up to its name with a new island-inspired restaurant, and plantation-style spa, which have opened under new management at the Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort. Locally grown produce and freshly caught fish swathe the mouthwatering menu at the new Oasis on the Beach restaurant, while Spa by the Sea boasts an organic product-line. Both amenities aim to complement the resort’s naturally pristine atmosphere by incorporating Hawaii’s incredible natural resources.

Oasis on the Beach Restaurant
Its name implies a place of refuge and relief, and the new Oasis on the Beach restaurant delivers just that. The casual and tasteful culinary retreat, located just steps from the beach at Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort, is the product of owner-operator Stefan Mandel with talented local chef Zack Sato bringing his expertise with local ingredients to the menu. Organic ingredients, over 80 percent of which are locally grown, are incorporated into a delightful, island-inspired menu. Examples of the delicious local fare include locally-caught fresh fish glazed in miso-butter and topped with crispy onion strings, or a local grass-fed rib-eye steak with a red wine sweet onion butter, over a taro mash and braised greens. 

“We are extremely proud to add Oasis on the Beach restaurant to our property,” said Gregg Enright, general manager of Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort. “The fusion of fresh, island-grown produce and mouthwatering entrees, creates a dining experience unique to our property, that guests will surely remember.”

At the 5 p.m. happy hour, guests can watch the spectacular sunset and sip on refreshing ginger-lime infused Mojitos or classic Mai Tais. The entrees featuring the catch-of-the-day have never seen the freezer, as a newly caught batch is brought in each morning to be served. Nowhere else on Kauai can guests dine on fresher local produce from such a stunning ocean vantage point. Oasis on the Beach is open 2 p.m. to 9 p.m., Tuesdays through Sundays, with dinner service beginning at 5 p.m. Watch for lunch service to begin at a later date. For more information or reservations, call direct to (808) 822-9332.

Spa by the Sea

Spa by the Sea offers guests a full-service spa, including an extensive menu of facials, massages and other pampering treatments. Nestled on the beachfront property of Kauai’s eastern shore, the 4,000 square-foot spa boasts services that are unique to Hawaii, while using only pure organic ingredients in its treatments.

“Spa by the Sea tops-off our assortment of luxurious amenities here at the Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort,” said Enright. “Now guests can treat themselves to the restorative vacation they deserve by booking an appointment for an organic Hawaiian massage or facial.”

Revitalize with a volcanic clay facial or lomi lomi massage, and repair sunburned skin with a Noni Body Wrap. Known for its legendary healing powers, the Hawaiian people use the juice of this tropical fruit to heal burns, soothe and tighten the skin. In this cooling and healing treatment, the body is soothed with Noni Gel then gently massaged with warm coconut milk for a healthy tropical glow. Open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, the plantation-style spa is a must-visit when vacationing at the Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort.  For more information, log on to .
