On Monday morning Will and I had ocean-side massages scheduled. We started with breakfast at Duo, one of the resort restaurants. We ate there several times for breakfast through-out the week.
We finished breakfast and headed to the spa for our massages. The ocean-side massage is done in a hut overlooking the water and it was incredibly relaxing to hear the sound of the waves crashing. It was by far the best massage experience I have had and I’m so glad we planned it.
After our massages we went for lunch at a burger place at the Shops at Wailea and did a little more shopping. Then we headed back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. We made reservations at Merryman’s which is in Kapalua (about a 1 hour drive from our resort). Our reservations were at 6:00 pm so we had to leave early to make sure we were there on time. Zach and Michaela had eaten at Merryman’s before and raved about it so we were really excited to try it out.
This was our view from our table. The views were beautiful even with the clouds covering the sunset.
I love a good scallop dish and these were the best I have had.
They also gave each couple this dessert to celebrate our anniversaries. It was a flourless chocolate cake (Michaela and I are both gluten free) that was so good!
One of the best parts about this trip was all of the amazing food we had, but we all agreed that Merryman’s was our favorite.
Our plan for Tuesday was that the guys were driving back up to Kapalua to play golf at the Plantation Course while us girls planned to lay out at the serenity pool all day. Michaela and I woke up and met to run before heading to the pool.
Of course I have to add a picture of our view from the running trails. I don’t feel like the pictures even do it justice but this was absolutely breathtaking!
We finished running and were both at the pool by 8:30 am. We stayed there until late afternoon. It was all we planned for the day and all we wanted to do was relax, read, and soak up as much sun as possible.
Meanwhile Will and Zach were soaking up sun on the golf course.
That night we all had dinner at Nick’s Fish Market which was at the Fairmont Kea Lani just down the road from the Four Seasons.
Again, the food was absolutely wonderful. Everything was so fresh and full of flavor!
That just about does it for part 2 of the recap. I’ll post the final recap soon!
