The Imu Ceremony
Germaine’s Luau gives you the unique experience of a traditional Imu Ceremony. The evening’s festivities begins with the sounding of a conch shell and the lighting of torches. Watch as the traditional underground oven known as an imu is opened, revealing a whole pig that’s been roasting for hours. After this slow-cooking—up to 12 hours—the savory aroma of juicy, tender kalua pua’a (roasted pig) fills the air.
The Hula Dance
There’s a variety of colorful and exciting performances throughout the evening. Enjoy songs and dances from the islands of Tahiti, Samoa, Fiji, New Zealand. And of course, the romantic hula of Hawaii. Perhaps the best part is the audience participation, where you can learn how to dance hula on stage with the multi-talented dancers!
The authentic Hawaiian and American buffet is diverse as it is delicious, including lomi lomi salmon, kalua pork, teriyaki beef, fried mahi mahi, and barbecue chicken. The earthy poi goes well with the tart lomi lomi salmon. You can have seconds, or even thirds if you want. Just make sure to leave room for dessert! There’s haupia, chocolate cake, and coconut cake. Plus, enjoy unlimited soft drinks, coffee, tea. Of course, there’s also a great selection of alcoholic drinks!
Here’s what one of Germaine’s amazed guests had to say about the exciting fire dancing: “It was incredible to watch Germaine’s Luau’s two-time fire-dancing champion spin and throw burning poles without burning himself. The fire-dancer was such an amazing professional, it seemed like he has taught his body not to sweat at all while dancing to rapid drumbeats. Genuinely very impressive to watch.”
Keiki o Ka ‘Aina Coconut Trees
While exploring the luau grounds, you may notice coconut palm trees of varying heights scattered around. Germaine’s Luau was originally the seaside residence of the Stephenson family, and they wanted to ensure the family would always remain rooted here as Keiki o Ka ‘Aina (children of the land). Therefore, they planted coconut trees throughout the property for each family member. In keeping with the Stephenson family traditions, Germaine’s Luau ensures these coconut trees are well-maintained and remain where they were originally planted.
