DINING AT TRAVAASA HANA
With the incredible abundance and inspiration of Hana to draw from, our Executive Chef has created a dining experience that's pure Travaasa – a celebration of life and the bounty of the earth that nourishes us body and soul. He's coined a name for his eclectic, creative culinary style: Hana Fusion, a combination of techniques from classical to innovative blending bold flavors with a focus on in-season, local ingredients.
