When you arrive, you’re greeted in the traditional way: with a lei. Feel like part of one big ohana (family) as you join the tropical party. Some of the special treats this luau includes are an all-you-can-eat Hawaiian buffet and an adult beverage, as well as seating with terrific views of the Polynesian performances.
The Chiefs Luau is sure to entice all of your senses. Smell and taste the exotic flavors of Hawaiian-style food, including kalua pig slow cooked in a traditional imu – an underground oven lined with hot lava stones. Lomi-lomi salmon, poi (pounded taro root), and imu-roasted vegetables are served, along with new and familiar island staples.
Feasts like this were once available only to Hawaiian royalty. Religion dictated that men and women eat separately. King Kamehameha II broke the taboo in 1819, inviting everyone to eat and celebrate together. Become a part of this tradition as you enjoy the Chief’s Luau with your family.
After indulging your taste buds in Polynesian flavors, treat your eyes and ears to performances of Pacific Island music and dance. From the sweet sounds of ukulele to a thrilling performance of the fire-knife dance, the entertainment certainly takes your breath away.
