Island of Maui

Virginia Douglas knows chocolate! Proud to call Maui and Sweet Paradise Chocolatier Boutique her new home, this master chocolatier, chocolate maker and chocolate gypsy is also owner of Kokoalani Chocolates formerly on O‘ahu and chocolate maker for Hana Gold Plantation in Hana—the first and only producing branch-to-bar cacao farm on Maui. Virginia celebrates the vibrant flavors and beauty of the Islands in a fusion of color and taste. The artisan chocolates and confections are made by hand in small batches, with a focus on blending great chocolate with fresh locally sourced ingredients including fruits, flowers, herbs, spices and nuts. The menu at Sweet Paradise Chocolatier Boutique is a panorama of indulgence. Enjoy truffles, bonbons, bars, caramels, confections, sorbet, and gelato! A highlight is Maui’s premier chocolate from Hana Gold and Kokoalani’s Hawai’i Grown Chocolate Collection. Open daily 11am to 8pm in the Wailea Gateway Center.
