My friends surprised me with a Afternoon Tea for a belated birthday celebration at the Veranda. In terms of history, the Moana Surfrider is famed to be the original hotel in Waikiki since it's opening in 1901. What better way to enjoy an afternoon munching on small sandwiches, scones, sweets, tea and sparkling wine than at this historic hotel?
We all enjoyed the full experience and felt like we were transported back in time while sitting near the original banyan tree from 1904. My friends and I all agreed that this Afternoon Tea is better than
the Afternoon Tea at the Kahala Hotel which ironically also goes by the same name.
Value-wise, it seems you get a lot more at the Moana Surfrider.
Afternoon Tea hours: Noon- 3pm. | Tea Sets run from $34.
You can preview their menu before arriving.
Reservations are recommended since it seems to fill up fast.
But it's easy since you can make it online. If there's anything to point out, its that the weather sometimes
can be very humid on the Veranda (like the day we were there). But hey that's really nitpicking as everything else was perfect. Our server was so attentive-- perhaps it's because he thought my friends were cute and they were giving us more attention haha)! ;)
