    Under The Branches…

Experience Hawaii

A place for creating and sharing memories

Much like a branch grows out from the trunk of a tree, The Branches grows from the special community that is Royal Lahaina. Found under our 100-year-old, 40 foot-tall rubber tree with a 75-foot canopy at the heart of the bungalows (planted there when they were originally built), this is also where you’ll find dining and dancing, live music and yard games, pop-up experiences and maybe a little magic. Every day of the week. And with hand selected wine and local beers, there’s always something to toast underneath the branches

Tuesday & Friday Nights

Kiawe Outdoor

Join us for a communal, alfresco, dinner experience with Maui's, Kiawe Outdoor. This dining experience begins with pupus and a celebratory sabering of champagne by master sommolier. All while you explore under The Branches at Royal Lahaina Resort & Bungalows. Seated dinner features a 5-course pre-fixe meal and vintage wine pairing. Outdoor cooking using local fare and drink is an experience you and your friends or family will never forget. Allow us to share a little slice of Aloha with a ton of flavor.
