DSC_0520_editedOne of the coolest amenities I’ve ever seen at a hotel was at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa. They recently introduced a Farmer’s Market in their atrium every Tuesday and Thursday from 4 pm to 8 pm. The Pualeilani Atrium has over 60 shops and boutiques on the ground floor of the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach (2424 Kalakaua Avenue) but my favorite one is the market, which sells fresh local fruits, vegetables, honey, peanut butter, hot food, and baked goods.

I recently visited and bought a pound of one of my favorite fruits, which I used to only see in Southeast Asia: rambutans! They cost $4.99/lb at thew Farmer’s Market which was the same price I’d paid at a market a few weeks earlier in Honolulu’s Chinatown.

According to the hotel’s Executive Chef, Sven Ullrich, “It is really important to us that we provide organic alternatives for our guests and the public. We believe in using these products in our restaurants and now we are taking them to our guests and shoppers. This will provide them with foods that are healthy and fresh as well as Hawaiian.” I can’t compliment them enough on this innovative initiative and I hope this will be a growing trend for all hotels. Below are a few photos from my time at the market.

FYI: Parking is $8 for self-parking and $13 for valet.

    This is amazing. I LOVE farmer’s markets, and I can’t even imagine what a farmer’s market would be like in Hawaii. I don’t think I’d ever be able to leave the hotel!
