The Lū‘au Experience

Kā‘anapali Beach Hotel, well known for its Hawaiian hospitality is now extending their ho‘okipa, hospitality, by presenting The Legends of Kā‘anapali Lū‘au every Monday night in the heart of the hotel‘s Tiki Courtyard where the largest tiki in the Hawaiian Islands presides over this gathering place. You’ll be greeted with warm smiles by nā mea ho‘okipa, the friendly staff of the hotel, leading you to a scrumptious feast prepared by award-winning island-born chefs.

Lu’au Reception


Feel free to browse the island created crafts sold by local artisans. Maybe you’ll find that perfect pareo (sarong) to wear at the lū‘au, or a flower lei to go with that bright aloha shirt. Relax and shop, but when you hear the sound of the pū, conch shell, it’s time to enter into the festive arena where only happy people are allowed!

Lu’au seating


E komo mai…sit and enjoy for everyone is an honored guest. The Hawaiian custom of ho’okipa means every effort is made to make you feel comfortable and important. We will offer you plenty of food and drink giving you the choice of our bountiful menu.

Hawaiian Roast Pig


The featured entrée is the whole roasted pig that has been turning for hours over kīawe charcoal (Mesquite) on the rotisserie. And our famous made-in-house taro poi will be an exceptional experience for you.


Legends of Ka’anapali Show


By the time your ‘ōpū (belly) is full and happy, the meaning of ho‘okipa becomes entertainment. You’ll be transported back in time when the Tahitian migration brought the first occupants to the steps of Kā‘anapali Beach.

You’ll experience the hope and desire of a new race of people guided by the sorcery of their many gods to a new home in the middle of the sea. They became the kanaka maoli, the Hawaiian people.

You’ll learn that the lure of Hawai‘i is held within nature as the dances and music of Lei Pono Productions will lull you under the spell of the moon.

The exciting and dangerous Fire Walk is the climax of the enchanting experience. The time capsule of the show is matched by the minutes ticking away for when the program ends, you’ll awaken to reality. Yes, you’re still on Maui!

By this time, we hope you’ve made new friends in our intimate setting, for although the show comes to a close, let the conversations continue. The walls disappear and more entertainment continues for your enjoyment. Yes, the true meaning of ho‘okipa is an experience at the most Hawaiian lū‘au. Let us show you the true meaning of aloha!
