Spend a remarkable evening exactly where ancient Maui's royal family would feast and entertain their guests!
Forget everything for a while and travel back to the past through traditional Polynesian music, dance, and cuisines while enjoying panoramic views of the beach as you sip your favorite cocktail.
Taking place right on the beach off the main street of Lahaina every night, Feast at Lele Luau treats you with authentic Polynesian entertainment, featuring four exotic Pacific islands, including Hawaii, Samoa, Tahiti, and New Zealand. Here’s a little trivia for you: Lele is the ancient name of Lahaina, the most populated place in Maui known for its long history and the so-called gateway to the majestic Kapalua and Kaanapali beach resorts. As soon as you arrive, some friendly staff in their colorful Polynesian outfit will meet you with fresh flowers lei greeting, and a welcome Mai Tai from the open bar. You can also order extra drinks, including cocktails, beer, wines, and spirits.
To get you into a real ancient Polynesian vibe, traditional music will be played in the background while enjoying the scenic West Maui sunset. Notice the intimate table setting with a candlelit and crisp white table cloth. When it’s time for dinner, the first Hawaiian course will be served, including Poi, imu-roasted Kalua Pua’a or pig, fresh fish, and some others. While you are feasting on your Hawaiian dishes, Hawaiian locals will entertain you with oli (chant), mele (song), and hula (dance), honoring the beautiful land of Hawaii (‘aina), as well as its royalty (ali’i).
After which, the second course, which is the Aotearoa, New Zealand-inspired cuisine, will be served while performers from the place will mesmerize you with their unique presentation. Also known as present-day New Zealand or the Land of the Long White Cloud, Aotearoa was home to Maori people who travelled from some of the most remote land masses in the world. It is believed that they have migrated from the Marquesas, Cook, and Society Islands. You can see that the dancers have facial tattoos or moko, which symbolize a person’s genealogy and personal identity. They will perform a war dance called Haka that was used in the past to intimidate their enemies. In addition, you will see them do an exciting dance using Poi balls, imitating the actions and rhythms in nature.
The next course is a Tahitian-inspired menu, including chicken wrapped in a taro leaf and baked scallops, while Tahitian performers will entertain you with their traditional dance. Watch their hips sensually swing to the pulsing rhythm of the ancient drums. Tahiti is no doubt a land of romance and intrigue that captures the imagination. With the verdant majesty of its lush mountains that rise out of the mist to the startling clarity of its coral lagoons, Tahiti is the tropical image of Polynesia.
Before indulging in your delightful dessert, allow the Samoan dancers to entice you with their performance of the famous and thrilling Samoan fire-knife dance. Hold onto your seats as they literally set the stage on fire while twirling their weapon, displaying some acrobatic tricks at an unimaginable speed. Also called the “cradle of Polynesia,” Samoa boasts lush jungle-shrouded islands home to nature.
