Dinner on the Big Island for our 10th anniversary

We are headed out to Hawaii next May. We will be celebrating our 10th anniversary while we are on the Big Island and are looking for a unique dinner suggestion. For our 5th anniversary we had an incredible private dinner in Maui with Tableside Chefs. We loved that, but my husband just read an article that indicated you can no longer book private activities like that on beaches in Hawaii. We would prefer something more unique than just an expensive restaurant. My husband is reading about a dinner near Mauna Kea which is sounding good. Any suggestions my TUG friends could offer would be great!!

Helicopter Charter and Lunch in Pololu Valley
For that very special occasion, charter a Helicopter for that special occasion and lunch in a secluded location with Pololu Valley and waterfalls as your backdrop!!!

Lunch on a Private Yacht Charter
Looking for something extraordinary and outrageous? Charter a yacht and enjoy Outrageous Gourmet's cuisine on the Hawaii's aqua blue waters!!!

If you want a beach dinner - contact the resort concierges (Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani, Fairmont Orchid, Four Seasons....) and find out about personal dinners on the beach. It can be accomplished.

There are quite a few personal chefs on the island.

Congratulations on you upcoming 10th!
