About the restaurant
Translated from the Hawaiian, ʻIkena can mean a view, seeing, knowing, association, scenery, or knowledge. It’s the perfect name, then, for our signature indoor-outdoor breakfast buffet, which offers picturesque views of the sea and sky from every table. Feel connected to the rhythm of the waves lapping Wailea Beach, the swaying of the palms, and the soothing sounds of birdsong amid ʻIkena’s soaring interior, brought to life via Maui’s natural beauty.

About the restaurant
For many years, the Kula Lodge has been a favorite for both visitors and Kama'aina alike for delicious cuisine and breathtaking views of Maui. Perched high on the slopes of Haleakala with a 180 degree view of Maui, the Kula Lodge and Restaurant is a comfortable and homey place to relax, especially on your way down from the sunrise or sunset at the crater. It is situated on 4 lovely acres and not only has a stunning botanical garden, it has the only full-service bar and live music in Kula. It's also the only place upcountry with dancing (on Friday and Saturday nights)!

The restaurant seats up to 160 guests, making it ideal for weddings and special events. The Kula Lodge outdoor Garden Terrace features a brick wood-burning pizza oven and an open view of south, central and the Maui mountains. The sunset views are absolutely phenomenal!

Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 5-7 have live entertainment; Friday & Saturday evenings from 5-8pm have live entertainment AND dancing!

Food and service were both excellent. They recently changed their menu back after 8 months of housing and feeding locals that were displaced. Highly recommend! Good food and good people!
