Luau in Hawaii

The Hawaiian luau is the subject of this week’s Hawaii Vacation Connection Podcast, with Aloha Bruce and Lanai Tabura delving deep into a symbol of Hawaii’s Aloha Spirit and generous hospitality. Before getting into it, our hosts note that podcast listeners can now comment online and encourage engagement. Lanai begins by discussing the history of luau at Iolani Palace, with anecdotes about what it was like during the time of the royals. “It’s a party!” He discusses the Paradise Cove luau on Oahu and the award-winning performers it features. Lanai discusses luau menus as being more broad than a traditional Hawaiian luau to accommodate many different cultures and diets. Bruce says that while commercial luau might be considered “touristy”, everyone should experience it. Lanai points out that the sunset at the Paradise Cove luau is spectacular. Our hosts discuss a variety of other Hawaii luau, including the one at the Polynesian Cultural Center on Oahu. It features many Polynesian cultures, including Samoan, Tahitian, and Maori. The Smith Family Luau on Kauai and the Drums of the Pacific at the Hyatt Kaanapali on Maui are mentioned as exceptional. Our hosts note that Maui’s Old Lahaina Luau is hugely popular and should be booked well in advance. Bruce says that his favorite Big Island luau is at the King Kamehameha Hotel in Kona, called the Island Breeze Luau. The Sheraton Luau is also noted. Te Au Manoa at the Wailea Beach Marriott and the Feast of Lele on Maui are mentioned as sit-down luau, as opposed to the more common buffet-style feast. Bruce points out that there are more than 40 regular luau on Oahu. The Chief’s Luau is mentioned as quite entertaining and the affable host. Our hosts talk about open bar luau and offer a number of luau suggestions for all islands.
