Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort and Spa on Hawaii's Big Island has introduced innovative new menu offerings to address current travel trends. The menus reflect guest requests for value, healthy options, shared plates and even shared tropical beverages for two.
"Our desire is to help our guests connect with the destination through new experiences at Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort and Spa," said general manager George Reed. "One of the ways we can help provide a more lasting understanding of and connection to this place and to the Hawaiian culture is through food."
At Sliders, the resort's casual poolside dining locale, guests can relax with a refreshing tropical smoothie of the day and also enjoy the chef's special slider of the day. Options include Hawaiian-style angus beef sliders with grilled pineapple and teriyaki soy sauce glaze, or luau sliders with kalua pork, braised cabbage and a plum barbecue sauce.
Kai, the resort's signature restaurant, has introduced a menu that focuses more than ever on locally-sourced foods. It includes the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival's award-winning Kona coffee-crusted ahi carpaccio. Island-sourced mushrooms, goat cheese, greens and fish also play starring roles in a Kai dining adventure.
The hotel's Manta Ray Bar and Grill is where clients can view Keauhou's famous manta rays that feed most evenings in the waters just offshore. Complimentary educational "manta talks" take place here as well. The restaurant serves such signature made-to-share cocktails such as a ginger Cosmo.
