Reserve Your Luau Oahu Today

By Evelyn Walls

Everyone who is lucky enough to have the chance to visit the beautiful island Oahu should really get into the spirit of the island culture. Be sure to see all the iconic sights and the beautiful beaches and sunsets. Also be sure to celebrate your time there by booking a luau Oahu. Luau guests begin to feel as if they were born in this naturally magnificent paradise.

The island is strong in the tourism business. You would not want to miss the chance to partake in a private luau. Barring an invitation to a private event, tourists can book luaus with various businesses that serve the tourists or with the Polynesian Culture Center. There are packages to suit the family on a budget up to deluxe packages for those with more money to spend.

There are packages that are strictly for the luau feast. Other packages include island village tours, canoe rides and more. These are all day packages that are topped off with the luau festivities. The prices for all packages are more reasonable than you would expect, so be sure to include this in your travel budget.

If you have never experienced this traditional island party, here is what you can expect. There will be Polynesian food like poi, fish, bananas and pork. Meat and fish are cooked underground in keeping with tradition. The festivities will include Hawaiian music and entertainment. Hula dancers in traditional grass skirts, leis and flowers in their long hair will perform. Some of the guests may want to join in the hula dancing. There will be non alcoholic punch for the underage set and exotic cocktails for the adults.

The feeling is one of togetherness and celebration. Historically, luaus were held to honor some milestone in the lives of islanders. They have never been considered as just a gathering for mealtime. Luaus have always been held in the spirit of unity, gathering friends and family to participate as one group. Long ago all the guests sat on the ground on a mat made of lauhala leaves from the hala tree.

The Polynesian Cultural Center is the most popular paid attraction. The Center offers a wide assortment of packages to help tourists get to know the island better. You can arrange tours to iconic sights that you have read about in books. A tour of Pearl Harbor is meaningful to many Americans for different reasons. Imagine a guided tour of a volcano. The Center can tell you all about the events and sights that will be most memorable, including the luaus.

Take some time to do some research and read what Oahu was like before and after the Westerners arrived. Oahu was a monarchy, and King Kamehameha the Great is possibly the most well known. In the 1800s the Christian missionaries came to convert the islanders. For better or worse, their mark is left to this day with the Christian churches and the melding of cultures.

In 1959 the Hawaiians islands became a part of the United States. Even though your travel to Ohau will not require a passport, you will feel like you are in an exotic island paradise. The beauty of the islands and the beaches is remarkable. Enjoy this paradise with the traditional island feast.
