Traditional Luau & Rehearsal Dinner

Friday, February 25th

Join us at 5:30 pm under the tent by the Princeville's beach and pool.

Enjoy sunset (behind Bali Hai) cocktails before the entertainment begins.





ENTERTAINMENT - Surrounded by torches, hula dancers and musicians convey cultural tales such as that of the original journey to Hawaii on outrigger canoes. 

Imagine crossing the Pacific in a canoe going from the familiar Southern Hemisphere stars to those of the unfamiliar Northern Hemisphere.  The North Star was just a fable to these brave travelers.  Hawaii had a bounty of fresh water and sea life, but also had fearful active volcanoes. 

The new Hawaiians brought animals and vegetables, which they bred and planted.  It was not an easy process, and they suffered numerous setbacks. 

The Luau celebrates the Hawaiian's eventual success and demonstrates an enormous respect for nature and her generosity.

DINNER – The luau buffet is a sumptuous feast with foods both familiar and new.  There is something for everyone, including fish, chicken, hula pig, pasta, vegetables, fruit, desserts, and many other surprises. 

Poi - a purple substance made from steamed taro (a root vegetable), was a staple in the early Hawaiian diet.

Humuhumunukunukuapua'a – The delectable State fish of Hawaii.

Poke - Hawaii's version of sushi, very fresh raw fish or octopus mixed with sesame seed, limu, and island flavors.

Kalua pig – roasted all day in an underground oven called an imu.  The Hawaiian sea salt and island flavors make this an unforgettable treat.

Chicken lu'au - Cooked in coconut milk and taro leaves.

Haupia - Coconut milk custard.
