Nutrition is a key element of Wellness at 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay, with seven food and beverage outlets, offering fresh, local, and sustainability sourced farm-to-table ingredients.
Our signature restaurant, founded on plant-forward, hyper-local and sustainably sourced cuisine from the island and its surrounding waters. Led by nature, 1 Kitchen’s menu is highly seasonal, envisioned by Chef Gabriel Martinez to feature the best ingredients from Kaua’i’s farmers, ranchers, fishers, and growers.
1 Kitchen’s evolving wine list is one of the island’s largest, featuring 165+ labels highlighting organic and biodynamic vineyards, plus zero-waste cocktails made with local rum and spirits.
Known for the best sunset on Kaua’i, an oceanfront restaurant, bar and lounge with a locally sourced, modern Japanese menu to share family-style: nigiri, sashimi, and tabletop Hibachi, envisioned by Chef Misao Masuda and paired with a selection of 26+ sakes, Japanese whiskies and beers, organic, sustainable wines, and craft cocktails. A place to gather, share lingering meals and lively conversation, and catch nightly live music from local artists.
Our all-day café, market and communal gathering spot for guests and locals. Catch up with cold-pressed juices, kombucha and wellness shots, (thanks to our friends at Kaua’i Juice Co), recharge with barista-brewed local coffee, or linger over a nutrient-rich breakfast of chia parfaits, overnight oats, housemade pastries, sustainable salads. For guests on the go, refreshing coconut water, tea, kombuchas, acai bowls, sandwiches and gelato from our sweet friends at Papalini Gelato in Poipu to take wherever you wander.
The Juice Bar
Daily wellness support, pre- and post-workout fuel, and energizing smoothies to power your next adventure. A selection of cold-pressed juices made with locally sourced, nutrient-rich ingredients from our partners at Kauai Juice Co., coffee and tea from Hanalei Coffee Roasters, plus signature kombuchas and wellness elixirs curated with your optimal health in mind.
A poolside, ocean-facing retreat with sweeping views of Hanalei Bay and a menu of locally sourced, classic Hawaiian beach food. A perfect gathering spot for families to gather, lounge, share a meal and take a dip in the pool.
Featuring light daytime dishes, (like poke bowls, fish tacos and BALTS on locally baked bread), a wood-burning pizza oven, and keiki menu (for your minis.) Beverages are designed for poolside lounging, with craft cocktails made from 50+ agave spirits, frozen drinks, locally sourced beer, cider, kombuchas, and low-ABV seltzer.
Our focus on sustainability includes reusable, stainless steel glassware, takeaway containers composted by our local friends at Heart & Soul Organics and additional efforts to protect our island and surrounding waters.
A serene refuge by our adult infinity pool with spectacular views of the ocean, lush mountains and tropical flora. Offering a menu of craft cocktails, succulent snacks, and a curated selection of local beer, kombucha and low-ABV seltzer. Designed to refresh body, mind and soul.
Lunch is centered on light, nutrient-rich dishes, (think bowls, salads and wraps) to have in the restaurant or poolside on Kai Maika’i’s Terrace. (Drop by on Sundays for live DJ beats.)
A classic Hawaiian treat that’s worth relocating for — enjoy shave ice made with locally crafted syrups from our friends at Slow Island Co., as well as ice cream and natural toppings. Level up your shaved ice with single-batch local rums and zero-proof artisan syrup, plus coconut water straight from the source, Hala Kahiki cocktails served in fresh local pineapples, and a poolside boutique with merch like sunscreen, sunglasses, and plenty of gear for fun in the water.

Chef Mel Fogata
Executive Chef Mel Fogata oversees culinary operations at 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay assuring that all of our restaurants are consistently using the freshest, seasonal ingredients from our local purveyors, as well as constantly advancing our commitment to nutrient-rich preparation and sustainably sourced organic cuisine.
Chef Fogata was born and raised on O’ahu, where he watched and learned to cook Filipino and local Hawaiian dishes from his family. He went on to work in top hotels and restaurants across Philadelphia, San Francisco and Arizona before joining (lucky) us in 2019.
Chef Khalifa Garnaj
Chef Khalifa Garnaj has been cooking for 18 years, influenced early on by his exposure to diverse cuisine, (raised by his North African father and Montana-born mother. One of his earliest food memories, he shares, “is sitting with my family on the ground around our terracotta tagine, eating couscous and chicken with our hands. I can still smell the spices.” Chef Garnaj started his career at a small café in Arizona as a dishwasher, filling in when the line cooks needed help. The cafe’s chef encouraged him to attend culinary school, and from there he went on to graduate from Le Cordon Bleu, returning to the same café as Executive Chef. He worked at numerous restaurants in the area before relocating to San Diego in 2013, where he worked alongside those chefs leading and evolving the farm-to-table movement. When the pandemic hit, he and his family moved to Poipu, where he took on a role at Koa Kea Resort before joining 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay as Executive Sous Chef.
