The New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel is a sweet little boutique place in Kapiolani Park right on the beach. It was a favorite of fashion designer Geoffrey Beene, and has a cool restaurant by the sand: the Hau Tree Lanai. Beautiful koi set the tone as you enter.
A large, airy room awaits!
"Bailing out the banks and Wall Street looks like giving insurance money to the arsonist." Chris Mathews
As we are seated under the huge hau tree, I instinctively look up the beach just beyond the balustrade.
"He that does good for good's sake seeks neither paradise nor reward, but he is sure of both in the end."
