Myths of Maui Luau

By Lacy Varner

The lapping of waves on the sand, the blow of a conch shell, the lighting of the tiki torches, the sun beginning to dip toward Lanai, and a cold Mai Tai in your hand – all the makings of a perfect Maui luau.

At the Myths of Maui Luau at the Royal Lahaina Resort, you’ll be greeted with a lei, a smile, and your choice of Mai Tais, Blue Hawaiis, or tropical fruit juice. It’s a wonderful way to start a memorable evening.

En route to your seat, your host/hostess with point out where to find keiki face painting and bracelet-making, the bar (with complimentary Mai Tais, Blue Hawaiis, cocktails, beer, wine, and assorted non-alcoholic beverages), and the imu. But if you want a good view of the kalua pig coming out of the underground oven (imu), be sure to head over early. It gets crowded pretty quickly.

Then as the sun begins to head for the horizon, the emcee will start you off on your cultural journey through the islands of Polynesia. Myths of Maui’s talented dancers perform Hawaiian, Tahitian, Samoan, and Maori dances involving poi balls, wooden spears, and even fire. Prepare to be dazzled by this brilliant bunch of dancers, singers, and musicians.

And just wait until the fire-y finale! It’s easy to see why this production is Maui’s longest running Polynesian luau.
