Every moment during a Hawaiian vacation is outstanding. There is so much to fall in love with. One stand-out experience you should add to your vacation must-see list is A Myths of Maui Luau. It is the longest-running luau in Kaapaali, held at the Royal Lahaina Resort, and it is amazing! I have to say that it was one of the most spectacular evenings of my life. It’s exceptional from beginning to end. As a matter of fact, you won’t want it to end!
Myths of Maui Luau take you along a journey of Polynesian culture. This expertly organized event showcases and celebrates the spirit of the island. Every detail is taken care of. Every minute is a Hawaiian adventure for your senses. Right when you walk in, you are greeted with the most friendly locals, all dressed to impress, and of course, you receive a fragrant lei to get the festivities started. What about the view? It is located right on a breathtaking Maui oceanfront setting, the perfect backdrop for this one-of-a-kind experience. The sunset is remarkable and like no other. You might even get to see the dolphins dancing in the ocean! The locals say to be on the lookout for them to swim by! It’s simply magical!
From start to finish you will be delighted and entertained. Get ready for a phenomenal combination of high-energy rhythmic hula dances, live Hawaiian music of the islands, tasty tropical drinks, and a traditional Hawaiian feast. Wait until you see the dazzling full-cast Samoan fire knife finale. What a way to end the day!
Now, let’s talk about the menu. Your dining adventure starts with the Imu ceremony a long-time tradition of removing the Pua’a Kalua (Hawaiian for roast pig) from the in-ground oven. That’s right! It is cooked using a combination of hot coals, stones, and layers of leaves right in the ground! The Imu ceremony removes the layers to expose the cooked pork. Truly amazing. Enjoy the spirited sound of the drums as you enjoy the Kalua pork, fresh local fish, teriyaki chicken, mouthwatering salads, stir-fry, noodles, and more. This fresher than fresh farm to food menu will not disappoint. My favorite was the Asian steamed Mahi, Furikake jasmine rice, and the Haupia for dessert was irresistible! Here’s an FYI: They also feature a Keiki (kids) buffet.
