22nd Annual Maui Onion Festival

Everyone had a great time at the 22nd Annual Maui Onion Festival this past weekend.  The festival was hosted annually by Whalers Village in honor of the famous Maui Kula Onion – one of our largest agricultural exports.  The Maui Onion Growers Association cooked up 300 pounds of sweet Maui onion rings to what seemed to be a never ending long line of people waiting for them.

Entertainment and food/retail vendors filled the courtyards all day long.  Six of the best Chefs on Maui put on amazing food demonstrations for the crowd.  The included: James McDonald, Pacific’O and I’O Restaurants; Roy Yamaguchi, Roy’s; D.K. Kodama, Cane & Taro/Sansei; Brian Etheredge, Capische; Eric Arbogast, Cuatro, and David Paul Johnson, David Paul’s Island Grill.

Chefs also competed against each other in the Maui Onion Recipe Contest. Chef Dave “D.K.” Kodama took top honors in the Maui Onion Recipe Contest with his Kekaha Shrimp & Lobster Cake with Swiss Chard, Hamakua Aliʻi Mushrooms & Lobster Uni Sauce.  Chef D.K. Kodma owns and operates seven  restaurants on three islands, including four Sansei Seafood Restaurant  & Sushi Bars, d.k. Steak House, VINO Italian Tapas & Wine Bar  and Hiroshi Eurasion Tapas.

The festivities continued with keiki and adult Raw Maui Onion Eating contests.  Winners were Dante Gramuglia, 10 years old and a 5th grader at Princess Nahienaena Elementary School in the Keiki Division, and  Wayne Finlinson, 34, of St. George, Utah who won the coveted title for 2011, was presented with a beautiful sweet Maui onion lei, and $100 cash!

Skiing Massive Waves

This is fun – Popular Tahoe free-skier and trained racer, Chuck Patterson, was recently on Maui and rode a 20ft. wave at Jaws. But get this – he rode the wave on skis (surf-skiing)! Here’s the link to watch the video and read the article.

Napili Point Resort Trip Advisor Review!

Here are some exerpts from a recent Trip Advisor review of Napili Point Resort.

‘Beautiful Location right on the ocean. Quiet. Not a party place…which was positive for us. Specatular views, sunsets, great snorkeling with the turtles, Napili beach just a short 4 minute walk away. Surf was up out front.. very entertaining….Staff was excellent, professional…..We stayed in unit A-13…..clean, nice bed, well equipped with lots of extras …beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, stacks of books even snorkel gear.
Obviously thoughtful owners. Enjoyed several rounds of golf at Kapalua. Sampled several restaurants in the area (Merrimen’s, Duke’s, Pinapple Grill, Sea House…all pricey, but first class) Don’t miss – the Gazebo on the beach next door for breakfast…We’ll be back…

The North Pacific Humpback Whales are back!

The North Pacific humpback whales, we affectionately refer to as our “gentle giants”, have arrived!  The humpbacks begin their migration approximately 3,000 miles from the cold arctic waters to the warm waters of Hawaii, to mate, give birth to their calves, and rear their young.  The shallow waters surrounding Maui are known as the “cradle of the humpback” due to the significant number of humpbacks raised in this area.  

The Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary is one of only 12 marine national parks and is the only preserve in the United States dedicated to a marine mammal.  During the peak season (mid-December to mid-March), there are literally thousands of humpback whales in our islands. On Maui, we are fortunate to have hundreds of daily humpback whale sightings well into April and May.

We so enjoy these gentle giants at Napili Point Resort. We invite you to come visit us soon! Call toll free at 1-800-669-6252 (US and Canada) or direct 1-808-669-9222, Daily 7AM-9PM Hawaii Standard Time

Aerial Photos of Napili Point Resort

Last week we had Randy Miller of Miller Images in Lahaina, come to Napili Point Resort and take aerial photos of the resort.  These weren’t just any aerial photos – Randy used a 6′ drone airplane that was equipped with 2 digital cameras underneath the plane’s wings. 

It was an absolutely beautiful morning in Napili - not a cloud in the sky.  It was around 8AM when Randy launched the airplane from the “point” of the resort.  He navigated the airplane remotely, walking up and down the resort taking aerial photos of the resort, Honokeana Bay, and he even got shots of the honu (turtles) in the bay!  The camera took a photo every 5 seconds and they turned out incredible! 

Would you like to see all the photos that Randy took?  Please visit our Napili Point Resort Facebook Fan Page at this link.  Remember - you do not need to have a Facebook account to look at our Fan Page and enjoy it.  It is a public site and available for viewing by anyone. Once you are the Fan Page, click on Photos and then the first album is called “Aerial/Resort Photos”.
