private beach in Oahu
hotels in Waikiki area
Just 27 miles from Waikiki you can transport yourself back to a time gone by. Since 1976, on the shores of West Oahu, Germaine's Luau has been treating guests to one of the top dining experiences in Hawaii. Prepare yourself for an evening of fun, food, and beauty. Upon arrival you are greeted by your hosts, bearing a traditional Shell Lei. The conch shell sounds, inviting one and all to the feast. The Royal Court enters, stopping for photos, and the celebration begins.
The luau is technically the top of young taro plants prepared with coconut cream, chicken, or octopus. Served at celebrations in Hawaii since the 1800's, this dish came to symbolize all Hawaiian festivities, once called 'ahaainas' meaning feasting. The celebrations had community binding implications and they were meant to honor the gods. Eventually the religious intents fell away and almost all such festivities came to be known as luaus.
The imu, an underground cooking pit, is opened releasing the incredible smell of roast pork, the main attraction at the all-you-can-eat dinner. Before the meal begins, dancers from Tahiti, Samoa, New Zealand, and Hawaii provide entertainment. Colorful and graceful Tahitian dancers perform an energetic dance wearing astonishing head dresses. Samoan Fire-Knife dancers follow, and then the Slap Dance performed by Samoan men. Of course, no luau would be complete without the hula. The hula has been used in Hawaii to tell stories of love, life, and harmony for generations. The show continues through dinner, so sit back and enjoy the magic.
Dinner features a combination of Hawaiian and American foods. Taste traditional fare such as poi, Kalua pig, and Lomilomi salmon, or relax and stick to food you know, like fried chicken and chocolate cake. You won't go away hungry. Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and of course Kona coffee are included.
