Maui Resort Hosts New Luau

The Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa on Maui is offering a new luau experience with contemporary songs and hula.

Held at the resort’s luau grounds with a view of the Pacific Ocean and Molokini island, “Te Au Moana” is performed every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening, starting at 4:30 p.m. Upon arrival, each guest receives a fresh flower lei. They begin their evening enjoying live music and participating in interactive Hawaiian crafts such as lei making, coconut husking, hula dancing and kapa (bark cloth) printing.

Guests can also watch the unearthing of the imu, or underground oven, used to steam a whole pig for the traditional luau dish of kalua pork. The steamed kalua pig is freshly served in the buffet that evening. Other buffet items include imu kalua pork, teriyaki steak, shoyu (soy sauce) chicken, sautéed fresh mahi mahi with lemon butter, Molokai sweet potato, lomi lomi salad and poi. For dessert, guests can enjoy coconut haupia and more. Music, dance and fire-knife performances follow the dinner.

Prices are $98 for adults and $53 for children (6-12 years) with free admission for children under 5 years. For reservations and information on “Te Au Moana,” call 877-827-2740 or visit
