There’s a foodie in all of us, and when you’re in Hawai`i, you’re going to want to try lau lau or kalua pua’a (pork), coconut risotto, mahi mahi, and Ko’ala lamb chops. Or if you’re really into learning about Hawaiian food history, try the Native Hawaiian Diet of chicken or fish at the Tiki Terrance. Prior to westernization, Hawaiians consumed less than 10% in fat by eating high-protein meals, and the hotel offers a complete healthy meal alternation that models the traditional Hawaiian cuisine. (Plus all the other options mentioned above are also available at the Tiki Terrace.)
You can’t come to Hawai`i and not experience a luau. Every Monday, you can experience an authentic Hawaiian luau at Kā’anapali Beach Hotel in the Tiki Courtyard with merchandise from local artisans; a buffet with a whole rotisserie Huli Huli pig, broiled marinated Kalbi beef, grilled hibachi chicken, and sautéed mahi mahi with passion fruit sauce; and a spectacular dance and music show, plus the dramatic finale—the Fire Walk.
