How Sacramento REALTORs Can Relate to Molokai's Wot Wot

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

The general manager of the Molokai Hotel assured me last night that the restaurant, which is presently under re-construction, will be ready in 8 weeks, or at least by Christmas, and he guarantees it. Emphatically. Which will most likely make a huge difference in the experience at this hotel; I can see lunches around the pool and evening dinners at oceanside. At the moment, there really are no hotels on the island that offer an onsite restaurant service.

People generally stop by the bar for a drink on their way to dinner somewhere. Many of the other restaurants in the closest town, Kaunakakai, do not serve alcohol. But the travelers who come to Molokai do not seem to mind much. They're not here to be pampered and spoiled, and crowds are not their thing. Some are like me, a Sacramento REALTOR, seeking peaceful relaxation in a stress-free environment to recharge after a busy year.

I met a woman here who is 87 and lives 3 miles down the road. She was in sales and retired at 82. She told me that it's pretty evident that I know wot-wot. You can see photos and read more about Molokai in my personal blog today Do You Know Wot Wot?

8 weeks or at least by Christmas leaves a whole lot of wiggle room, Elizabeth! It is funny though, I was sitting here thinking about the number of times I've actually ate a a hotel I was staying.  That is other than breakfast.  Usually, I find myself meandering to some place else to dine.

Hi Elizabeth.  What's up with a paradise restaurant that doesn't sell alcohol?  They are definitely not wot wot.

Myrl Jeffcoat Most hotel food isn't very good but the high-end resorts offer gourmet restaurants, and if you're isolated miles away from anything without a car, well, that's a different story, too.

James Dray I think I will remember wot wot. heh heh

Conrad Allen Mokokai doesn't bill itself as a paradise and enjoys its laid-back reputation. Besides, it's cheaper to pick up a bottle or two at the liquor store. Michelen-rated restaurants they are not.

Gabe Sanders I too wish more people knew wot wot but I think that comes with time and awareness.

   It's cheaper in the states to pick up a bottle at the liquor store.  Keep on enjoying

Wot Wot sounds like short hand.  The people who know wot wot don't need to waste time on additional words.
