Inspired by Hawaii’s plantation heritage, Kai Market offers a buffet of simply delicious dishes, reminiscent of Hawaii’s plantation roots, but prepared with modern day culinary expertise. With floor-to-ceiling, gorgeous views of the resort’s infinity edge pool and Waikiki Beach, Kai Market is a bright, spacious, fresh-air setting for buffet-style breakfast and dinner with family and friends, with special pricing for children.

“The locals make up a huge portion of our daily guests,” says Chef Darren. “They live here so they know what fresh and local tastes like and know a great deal when they find one. Week days and weekends are a bit different with what exactly is offered, but really, any day for any meal is the best time to dine here.” Kai Market uses locally farmed and organic ingredients to create unique dishes that truly embody the islands’ elements. Gourmet dishes like Hawaiian-style seafood paella with mussels, scallops and Portuguese sausage and the Hawaiian pork with butterfish lau lau, lomi lomi salmon and poi are just a few of the island-style offerings throughout the week, alongside all-you-can-eat prime rib or southern crab legs on the weekend. If you’re looking for island-inspired cuisine, this is as authentic as it gets.
