Tidepools is an outstanding restaurant literally of a pond of koi. The service is great and the food was amazing. The Grand Hyatt is indeed Grand so if your budget conscious this may not be the place for you, but would recommend it highly

Another reviewer described Tide Pool as sitting on of a lily pad...and I totally agree. We were not staying at the Grand Hyatt so when we arrived, we were already pleased with the beautiful grounds leading to the unattached restaurant. The beautiful fish (and swan)...More

Embrace the tempting combination of contemporary Hawaiian cuisine served in a unique Hawaiian setting. Thatched-roof bungalows float above a koi-filled lagoon at the base of a waterfall to create romantic ambiance. Inspired by local ingredients and the rich culinary traditions of Hawaii
