Tahitian for “the very best,” the fruity rum Mai Tai was originally created in California and then traveled to Polynesia in the ’50s. For Oahu’s best version combined with a stunning sunset, try Sunset Lanai. The beachside patio bar at the New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel features the tree where Robert Louis Stevenson once wrote poems to Princess Kaiulani.
