The best way to learn about Hawaii’s rich cultural heritage is to enjoy its traditional form of festivities, the luau. A Luau is a Hawaiian party, but it has deep cultural and social significance, stretching centuries, to a time before the outside world discovered Hawaii’s warm waters and stunning shorelines.
The luau is a place to reunite with old family and friends, and to meet new friends, too. At Germaines Luau, you can experience a real Hawaiian Luau, complete with music, entertainment and some of the most delicious delicacies that Hawaii has to offer.Located just over 25 miles from Waikiki, Germaines Luau is situated next to Barber’s Point Lighthouse in Kapolei. The luau takes place right on the beach, so you can get a feeling of how Hawaiians have been celebrating for centuries. Germaines Luau has been showing its guests the Aloha Spirit since 1976, and it has been featured on Good Morning America and was acclaimed “America’s Best Luau” in America’s Best 100. Germaines Luau has welcomed over three million visitors over nearly four decades of entertainment and delicious island cuisine. When you arrive, you will be adorned with a lei, a traditional Hawaiian wreath of fragrant flowers that signifies welcome. When you hear the sound of the conch shell, you will know that the party has begun.
Fine Hawaiian Style Dining and Entertainment
The luau is one of Hawaii’s most important cultural traditions that has not been lost in modern times. At Germaines Luau, you will learn how delicious Hawaiian dishes are prepared. The main course, roast pig, is prepared in a traditional imu, or underground oven. In addition to Kalua pig, you will enjoy a luxurious Hawaiian buffet, which induces island delicacies such as lomilomi salmon, chicken long rice and poi (taro potato). The buffet comes with complimentary soft drinks, coffee and tea, and guests also have the option of ordering alcoholic beverages at the main bar. The all-you-can-eat buffet ensures that no guest will leave with an empty stomach. Vegetarian guests can order a meat-free stir fry dish in advance, too.
Highlights of Germaines Luau include the evening’s entertainment. You will be treated to various forms of traditional Polynesian dance, including the Samoan Fire Knife Dance and the Samoan Slap Dance. It wouldn’t be a luau without a traditional Hawaiian hula, and you will be entranced by the relaxed, rhythmic swaying of the dancers that tell a story with their eyes and hands as they effortlessly move to the music.
