If that fruity mai tai topped with a touristy umbrella and chunk of pineapple doesn’t have enough wow for you, kick it up a notch. Go subterranean.
Secreted away in a cave below two dancing waterfalls, the Grotto Bar links two free-form swimming pools at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa. The pools meet underground creating the ultra-coolest swimming hole.
The bar features all the standards, of course, as well as made-to-order frozen smoothies with your choice of coconut, Oreo cookies, chocolate, vanilla, guava, strawberry, mango, banana, passion fruit and pineapple — mix and match flavors!
If you don’t want to get your feet wet, no problem. There’s a footbridge offering full access to the bar for landlubbers. So hang out (stay dry, if that’s your thing), or swim up (for the full experience). Either way, the Grotto Bar is totally chill.
And, yeah, you can watch the game on the big screen HDTV.
Open 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., the bar menu includes light bites.
