from Hawai`i Loa Luau
An evening at the beautiful Fairmont Orchid, Hawai`i enjoying the elegance and beauty of the South Kohala Coast and the ambiance of the land area known as Kalahuipua`a.
Steeped in tradition and history, Kalahuipua`a is known as the gathering place for Ali`i (royalty) and special visitors. An evening at the Hawai`i Loa Lu`au is full of this same tradition of Hawaiian culture and hospitality.
Meet the performers before the show and learn about the traditional games and cultural practices of the people. A hosted bar and a spectacular buffet dinner offer the freshest and finest ingredients found in the islands.
Storytelling begins as beautiful hula dancers and talented musicians share the tales of Polynesia's brave and courageous voyagers - as they traveled to Hawai`i and established this land. Our family from Tahiti share the stories of their journey to Hawai`i, with the lively beat of the traditional toere drum. Your hosts for the evening tell the story of their home in Hawai`i with traditional hula. The influence of other cultures can be seen in the evolution of costumes and hula motions as we share unique and incredible history in this island of Hawai`i.
