Begin your celebration and create the perfect island greeting for your guests with a traditional Hawaiian luau. A fresh flower lei and tropical libation is presented to each guest upon arrival while soft Hawaiian music plays in the background. Our culinary team has prepared a traditional feast that showcases the cuisine of the islands. The beat of the drum signifies the start of a luau show and a cast of 12 will tour you and your guests through Polynesia, culminating with a fire knife dancing presentation.
