Behind Hawaii's Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort, the ancient seaside trail of Ala Kahakai runs along magnificent Anaeho'omalu Bay, passing two fishponds in which mullet and other valuable fish were once protected for the use of Hawaiian royalty. In the days of King Kamehameha, runners would race along the trail with fresh fish for his dinner table. Could there possibly be a more appropriate setting for a royal luau?
Each Wednesday and Saturday evening, beginning at 5:30pm, guests gather for the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Luau as the sun slowly sinks over the water. They arrive along winding paths cut into petroglyph-engraved lava rock. Soon the sounds of a conch shell and an ancient chant of welcome invite them to share the spectacle of the Luau's imu opening. What a spectacular event to behold so full of the Hawaiian Culture.
In this underground pit, a pig has been roasting in banana leaves since early morning to provide Kalua pork, the dish at the heart of every luau. The Waikoloa Beach Marriott Luau menu however, has variety enough to please every palate and appetite. Other Hawaiian specialties included are Lomi Lomi salmon, Waipio Fern salad, Hawaiian Tako (Squid) Cucumber salad, and Hawaiian coleslaw. No adventure in Hawaiian cuisine could possibly be complete without pineapple, coconut, and other tropical fruits. They appear in the salad bar's Indonesian ginger and curry chicken salad with toasted coconut, pineapple spears, and papaya sections. On the irresistible dessert table is pineapple upside-down cake, coconut cake, guava chiffon cake, and the unforgettable Lilikoi Haupia (passionfruit coconut pudding).
Following the feast the entire torchlit scene transforms as the dancers, musicians, and drummers of "Tahiti's Polynesia" transport guests on a 60-minute whirlwind tour of the South Pacific, from Hawaii to Tahiti, New Zealand, and finally Samoa. The evening ends even more magically than it began with their performance of the mesmerizing Samoan fire and knife dance! A fantastic night of entertainment!
