Experience the local flavors, art, and entertainment of Kauai at this year’s One Fine Evening event. Discover our hotel’s twist on Hawaiian cuisine as our Executive Chef, Lucas Sautter, will be featuring his favorite creations along with ten other island restaurants at this annual benefit for the Rotary Club of Poipu Beach. Pair your samplings with limited time wine tastings at an additional cost while also admiring the work of local artisans. Then cap the evening off by swaying or dancing to the live tunes by Rumba de Fuego and Hui Na Holoholo or visiting the silent auction.

Your Food & Beverage

Indulge in masterful dishes like rainbow chard served on a bed of roast sliced beets, topped with duck confit, goat cheese and a sherry vinaigrette. This savory pupu by Executive Chef Sautter will be made with locally sourced Hawaiian ingredients, pushing the fusion dishes to their max while also supporting our local businesses. Stop by and enjoy bites from island favorites like our Voyager Lanai, Lappert’s Hawaii for gourmet ice cream, Hukilau Lanai for a seafood sample, and more! Enjoy a refreshing glass of water, a crisp soft drink, or delicious cup of coffee to go along with your plate. For an additional $20, test your wine palate and sip on smooth wines that will only be available at this event and not for purchase in Kauai.

Your Entertainment

Grab your dancing shoes and get ready to salsa with Rumba de Fuego. This crowd favorite band is known for their incredible jazz, rock, funk, latin, and world tunes. Not only will Rumba de Fuego be performing, but also catch the traditional Hui Na Holoholo throughout the evening as well! The fun will not end there. In addition to live entertainment, local artisans Patrick Ching, Wendi Magaoay, Debbie Barklow, Marionette Taboniar, and Jan Ekleberry will be showcasing their paintings and work. Stop by to say “hi” and take a look at their masterpieces. Afterwards, head on over to the silent auction where you could win a night stay for a relaxing getaway, a romantic dinner date, or more! Don’t forget to commemorate the evening by taking a few silly or stylish photos in the photo booth.

All proceeds from One Fine Evening will benefit the Rotary Club of Poipu Beach.
