Honolulu, Hawai’i | Golden Jubilee Afternoon Tea at The Kahala Hotel & Resort

Saturday, January 11, 2014 3comments No tags Permalink 0

There are a few changes to afternoon tea at The Kahala…because it’s the hotel’s 50th anniversary ^_^

All the usual sweets like lilikoi madelines and brown sugar shortbreads have been replaced with “Golden Jubilee” sweets just for 2014. Think Mai Tai Tarts with almond frangipane, fresh pineapples, and a dark rum glaze.

Blue Hawaii macarons with orange-curaçao ganache.

There’s a Wili Wili Bar featuring a shortbread base topped with coconut, dark chocolate, and marshmallows…

…but my favorite of the quartet is The Kahala Coconut Cake. Chiffon cake, coconut pastry cream, and whipped cream. So simple, so good.

    Hi Kathy, have been an avid reader of your blog for quite some while now. I’m a native Californian living in NYC trying to plan a wedding in Hawaii for TW + Cali family n friends. Kahala hotl is actually one of the my choices. Was wondering if you can give me any other tips or suggestioms for a small, intimate wedding in Oahu, that’s not too touristy. ( w hote, four seasons are some of my favorites but its all on the other islands not Oahu, which is the easiest for everyone to fly into) Many thanks! -Lynn

      Hi Lynn – Congrats on the upcoming wedding!! For Oahu-based weddings my two picks would be The Kahala and Halekulani (will do a post on Halekulani later this week :). It’s in Waikiki but secluded, and all around gorgeous. A super beautiful property! ^_^
