    I use to work as a lei greeter at the Moana hotel and then moved to the front desk when the hotel did away with the greeters. I never went to high tea when I worked there. It was such a lovely experience. It's a bit pricey but we'll worth it. I'm obsessed with the coconut tea. Mahalo nui.

    The perfect spot for a leisurely tea/lunch. Such a view from the veranda! The choices of tea and mixes of sweet and savory bites were such treats. While a bit pricey, this tea service is worth the splurge!

    We ate several times on the veranda during our stay at the Moana Surfrider. Overall, we enjoyed it. Food was good, service was excellent. They try very hard to accommodate dietary restrictions. A little pricey, but we would expect that from a resort restaurant. Afternoon tea was delightful.

    WOWOWOW, I've been to many afternoon teas before but this one is a new fave! Their attention to detail, service, and quality was truly exceptional. We were celebrating my mothers' birthday and they added it onto the printed menu which was a great touch! We both opted for the Royal Tea and everything was delicious. Aki was amazing and even gave us the option to taste our teas from the tea-infused mimosas before choosing our final teas, which was awesome! We even got those same teas in our gift bags later, which was a wonderful touch. Charles was also attentive and struck the perfect balance of making sure our water and teapots were topped off. We loved the sandwiches and the scones but were too full to finish it all so we had to get some to go and they were just as wonderful the day after. Aki also presented my mother with some jellies as a birthday gift, which was a really nice touch. Overall, a very memorable and wonderful afternoon tea that we will think of fondly for years to come. Thank you to Aki and Charles for a wonderful afternoon tea!

    Our table was perfectly located right on the veranda where we got ocean breezes and a little A/C from the dining room. The teas were actually the star of the show - we did the POG and Early Grey Cremé and enjoyed them both! The execution on the pastries was a little better than the sandwiches, but I prefer sweets so ymmv. A delicious experience all around.

    Food was terrible. I felt like an imposition when I asked for a small change to the menu ( I’m vegetarian but not vegan) There was a tiny amount of food but in the end we left the little there was because it tasted terrible. The worst afternoon tea of my life and I had quite a few in my life! The only redeeming factor is the beautiful tree and the nice ambience ( but not that nice to justify everything!!!)

    HiTea at the Veranda was FANTASTIC!! We were seated at a nice corner table facing the beach enjoying “The First Lady” tea set… such a treat! Food was great and ambiance was so relaxing. If you have time walk around the hotel lobby area & 2nd floor to check out the historical artifacts and history of hotel.
