Set beachfront, atop picturesque Kapalua Bay, guests and locals will be able to experience island lifestyle at its finest with the opening of Champagne Hale at Cliff House. The Champagne Hale, with "hale" being the Hawaiian word for house or home, was created to encapsulate the natural beauty of the surrounding area and the spirit of Maui. A historic venue nestled on the cliffs of Namalu Bay, Champagne Hale at Cliff House offers the perfect spot to unwind after a day at the beach, pool or exploring the island; the lounge is filled with lush greenery and celebrates island living with a Veuve Clicquot twist.
"We are excited to bring this one-of-a-kind experience to Montage guests, residents and Maui locals," Richard Holtzman, managing director and VP, Montage Kapalua Bay, said in a statement. "The historic Cliff House is beloved on the island, and creating the Champagne Hale allows us to offer new programs and amenities, and another location to see the beauty of Maui while enjoying a refreshing cocktail."
Montage Kapalua Bay created a perfectly paired menu of Champagnes and light bites for the Champagne Hale. Champagnes featured include Veuve Clicquot Rich, a unique offering from the house available for the first time in the islands, inspired by mixology and best enjoyed over ice with fresh ingredients like pineapple and citrus. Additionally, Veuve Clicquot's signature Yellow Label, Rosé and La Grande Dame will also be available by the glass and in a special "sunset tasting flight." Montage Kapalua Bay's Executive Chef David Viviano's innovative food menu for the Champagne Hale consists of Osetra caviar with Moloka'i sweet and Yukon gold potato, gaufrettes, crème fraiche and chive; classic tuna poke with limu, soy, ginger, avocado, ocean salad and taro chips; Surfing Goat cheese & Kula strawberries with local honey and grilled baguette; oysters on the half shell with Champagne mignonette and calamansi; and tropical fruits including Maui pineapple, Moloka'i papaya, local mango and li hing mui.
