Named as “Ola” – which is Hawaiian for life, health and well-being, Ola Beach Club is where you relax, recharge, and regain your zest for life.

This lifestyle beach paradise transforms from a bright and sunny venue at day to a gorgeous romantic destination at night.

Bask in the sun as you lounge overlooking the lagoon, or dip in the pool before feasting over Hawaiian-inspired dishes. For adventure-seekers, you can go stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, donut ride, or ride a banana boat.

Beach grub specialties include signature dish Loco Moco ($20), a juicy medium-rare Wagyu beef patty served over Japanese Koshihikari white rice sprinkled with sesame seeds. The beef patty is topped with a panko-crusted soft-yolked egg – break then watch it ooze to mingle with the juicy beef.

Do try Hawaii’s version of teriyaki chicken via Huli-Huli Chicken ($20). A mix of chicken thigh and breast are soaked in a teriyaki marinade and cooked sous vide-style. The result is a full flavoured meat that’s extra tender.

For a lighter meal that’s perfect for warm weather days, order the Cold Caviar Pasta ($15) This pasta dish features cold yet al dente capellini (angel hair pasta) tossed in truffle essence and kombu, and topped with caviar.

After the sun sets, experience a pulsating beach nightlife while sipping a drink. How about tippling over Ola Huli Pau ($18), a concoction of rum, Pavan liqueur, fresh mint, and watermelon?

If you are in the mood for burgers, discover the Ayam Panggang Burger ($16) inspired by Malaysian flavours of barbecued spicy chicken.

At the heart of this burger is a freshly grilled sweet-and-spicy-marinated chicken, nestled in between toasted sesame buns. A dressing of sambal-infused mayo slathered over the chicken, plus achar (pickled veggies), a fried egg and fries complete the burger.

Joining the pasta entrees is the new Prawn & Chorizo Aglio Olio ($28) featuring a duo of Tiger prawns and spicy pork chorizo. What makes them extra tasty and aromatic is sautéing them in garlic and white wine sauce.
