Go To A Luau
Of Course you should... go to a luau I mean. Everyone who comes to Hawaii should definitely go to a luau. When I was growing up, it's what we did. Dig a hole in th eground, build a fire, roast a pig and a couple turkeys. Warm up the guitars and the hula hips, put up a tent and chill the beer! Oh yeah.Of course, it's not quite like that when you go to a catered luau, but it can still be a lot of fun. Prices range from around $60 to $125 per person. You'll get to try all the different foods - Kalua Pig (cooked in an underground oven - the imu), lomi salmon (a combiunation of salmon, onions and tomatoes massaged (lomi) together with some ice to make it cold... and of course, poi - one of our Hawaiian staples made from the taro (kalo) root.
Feast at Lele
One of the most popular, intimate and well received luaus we have ever had on the island of Maui is the Feast at Lele. This luau is held right on the beach at sunset time in the town of Lahaina. The luau only holds just over one-hundred and fifty people which makes it one of the smallest and most intimate luaus offered in all of Hawaii. Seating for this luau is at individual tables instead of the long picnic tables often found at others. If you are a couple, you will have your own table. If you are a foursome you will have your own table and so on. There is waiter service at this luau instead of a buffet and you waiter will bring you all the food and drink you will want for the evening. The main cultures of the Pacific Rim are featured in the show on stage and the way things are set up at this luau is that the food delicacies of the particular culture that is performing on stage will be delivered to your table during the performance. Since four cultures are presented there will be for separate courses of food delivered to the table over the course of the evening and then a desert course and prior to the first course are also appetizers. This is one of the most romantic and beautiful of all the luaus on the island and is usually sold out way in advance.
A sit down, five course dinner featuring cuisine of Hawaii, New Zealand, Tahiti, Samoa and Dessert as well as a premium open bar are included throughout the evening. Situated along the beach in historic Lahaina Town, guests are greeted with a fresh flower lei and a Mai Tai. Each course is accompanied by dramatic Polynesian entertainment from each Island that combines modern interpretations of the traditional song, dance and cuisine of four Pacific Islands. Dancers appear in full island dress representing Hawaii, New Zealand, Tahiti and Samoa. Tables are reserved for number in party (tables of 12 max.)
