Blue Dragon Restaurant, Spa, and a Musiquarium?
Besides gorgeous beaches, coastlines and culture, one of the most remarkable things about living in Hawai`i is definitely the people. Throughout the Hawaiian Islands, there are so many talented artists, eclectic folks and entrepreneurs, it never ceases to amaze! Have you heard about the Blue Dragon Restaurant, Spa and nightlife venue in Kawaihae? The Blue Dragon is such a radical venue, the epitome of fusion, and is downright excelling in everything they offer their guests.
First, Blue Dragon is a creative restaurant that infuses locally grown ingredients, gourmet culinary techniques, and festive flavors from around the world. Coined as “Coastal Cuisine” through numerous media outlets, restaurant guests can get excited for a host of specialty dishes with many vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options available. Winning starter selections include the Ahi Stuffed Avocado, Fried Oysters, Vegetable Summer Rolls, Local Beet Salad, and the Dragon Ballz (crispy polenta crusted lump crab with chipotle aioli). Mouthwatering entrees include Island Fish Tacos, Hawai`i Rancher’s New York Steak, Hawaiian Hogs Guava Pork Chops, and the South American Surf (shell on Kauai prawns, fresh catch chimichurri, farm fresh veggies, creamy polenta and grilled Big Island avocado). The homemade desserts are out of this world, and you absolutely cannot leave this Big Island joint without tasting one of their awesome cocktails. The Puff the Magic Dragon pushes limits in terms of modern mixology, and you should definitely order more than one of the Lilikoi Lemon Drops (to insure that you can fully taste all the flavor, of course).
Don’t forget to seize an opportunity to feed your body, mind and soul at the Blue Dragon Spa. Bodywork and massage services at the Blue Dragon are awesome! Open daily from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., guests can plan ahead and enjoy a relaxing spa day early, and dinner and dancing afterwards. With two climate-controlled and sound-proofed treatment rooms, spa guests will surely love their massage services; Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi, Hot Rock-n-Roll Massage, Sports & Injury Relief, Swedish, Thai, Deep Tissue and Reflexology. More bodywork services include the Blue Dragon Signature Facial (organic products), Mini-facials, Body Scrubs, Acupuncture, and more.
Oh, yeah! Almost every night of the week Blue Dragon has live entertainment! With a rotating selection of nightlife offerings, there is something for everyone with Multicultural music, Jazz & Blues, a Girls’ Nite Out, live Hawaiian music, DJ’s, and more. Guests should also look into the monthly Blue Dragon Farm Dinner events, and they’ve partnered with the Big Island Party Bus to offer transportation to and from the Blue Dragon and Kona resorts.
