The Coconut Grove
The lush landscape was fed by several springs encouraging tropical vegetation and the growth of the native staple, taro.
The Great Chief Kakuhihewa planted the Royal Coconut Grove on the site which later became the summer home of Queen Kaahumanu.
Today, remnants of the original coconut grove, now hundreds of years old, provide a tranquil respite in the east courtyard of the hotel.
