Wailea Marriott Maui Luau Pictures
These big Wailea Marriott Maui Luau
pictures let you visualize your luau experience with images rather than words. During the first part of the luau, you can participate in Hawaiian cultural activities such as flower crafting, kapa and bookmark making, and causal hulas and storytelling.
These activities are up close and personal. Here you can see the coconut milk coming from the split in the coconut shell that has just been opened.
After a kalua pig has roasted for several hours in the covered underground pit - imu - it is uncovered in a ceremony at the beginning of the luau.
At around 6pm, the torch lighting and conch shell alert you that the luau buffet is open. You serve yourself the luau food at a buffet style group of tables.
Unlike the endless rows of tables like at some luaus, at the Marriott Wailea luau you sit at individual tables.
The luau grounds are in a natural setting. The stage has the ocean and the island of Kahoolawe as the backdrop.
The Wailea Marriott luau is timed with the setting sun to provide a colorful ocean view natural background during the early part of the show. Often a red sunset backlights the dancers.
Several Polynesian and Hawaiian dances highlight the luau.
Once the sky is dark, the stage is lit up with the burning torches of the Samoan fire knife dancer.
The grand finale of the Samoan fire knife dance marks the end of the luau around 8pm.
