Stay for dinner
The Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort & Spa in Waikiki is making it easy for kamaaina families to treat Dad like a king by offering a Kamaaina Special with room rates starting at $150 per night over the Father's Day weekend. The special is good through June 30.
Families can stay over, wake up and enjoy the day at the 22-acre resort and stay for a celebratory dinner. Choose from the Golden Dragon Restaurant, where chef Steve Chiang presents a menu featuring asparagus with lobster soup, Szechuan tiger prawns, steamed scallops and Mongolian loin of lamb, at $48 for adults and $25 for children.
A steak-loving dad might prefer a three-course meal at the Village Steak & Seafood Restaurant, with entree choices of a 14-ounce Black Angus smoked rib-eye steak or sautéed fish and poached lobster medallions. The cost is $55 for adults and $27.50 for children.
If Dad's a buffet kind of guy, Rainbow Lanai will feature a wide assortment of pupu, entrees and desserts, with a carving station featuring roasted prime rib with herbed au jus and horseradish. The cost is $43 for adults and $22 for children.
To make the day extra-special, Hilton Grand Vacations Club will be hosting a drawing at each of the three restaurants for a chance to win golf for two at Luana Hills Country Club and a special golf amenity from the HGVC Logo Shop.
To reserve a room at the kamaaina special rate, call 949-4321 and specify rate code "P3." Dinner reservations can be made by calling 949-4321, ext. 39.
Give Dad a 'Challenge'
There should be more to Father's Day than bad ties and a free day to lounge with TV sports and cold brews. The Kahala Hotel Resort at 5000 Kahala Ave. asks gifters to consider introducing Pops to "The Kahala Challenge" and a two-night stay at the Kahala.
The Kamaaina Father's Day Room Package, offered Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights only through June 30, includes "The Kahala Challenge," a customized, private workout program just for men. Designed to fuel mind, body and soul, the two-hour challenge is divided into 30-minute segments:
» Stretching, power-walking or running along Kahala Beach.
» Weight training for muscle toning in the CHI Gym.
» Pool or ocean swim.
» Yoga and meditation.
The program concludes with a hands-on 60-minute cooking class on tasty and quick health meals to keep Dad fit and trim.
Rates are $335 per night for a garden-view room or $385 per night for a ridge-view room, both with a minimum of two nights. Proof of Hawaii residency is required.
