The Kaua‘i Hyatt Luau is an unforgettable experience hosted each week on Thursday and Sunday nights at the Kaua‘i Grand Hyatt. Tihati Productions Ltd. takes guests through a fantastic journey of rich Hawaiian culture. The show is entitled Havaiki Nui “The Great Land of Promise.” The stories of the land and dancers recreate the history and legend of the islands.
The offerings of the feast, the drinks and show are world class. You can choose from Kalua pork, Lomi Lomi salmon, Huli Huli chicken, steak, poi, Ti Leaf wrapped local fish and enjoy coconut pudding (haupia), banana pie and other fabulous Hawaiian desserts.
The bar is an open bar for the evening, and you are welcome to enjoy a Mai Tai or Hawaiian punch. You can see Hawaiian artists at work, learn about wood carving or take a hula lesson during the evening.
This show is so special that a small part of the entire production went to Washington when President Obama brought the spirit of aloha and ‘ohana to the White House for its first ever luau. The Tihati Productions crew also has performed for the likes of Oprah, Michael Jackson, Gloria Estefan and Bruce Willis — to name a few luminaries who have enjoyed this fabulous show.
The team at the Grand Hyatt Kaua‘i Luau has been together for many years and you can see the spirit of ‘ohana among them. Their spirit, their aloha for each other and the authenticity of their storytelling and dance leads to a cohesive and flawless performance.
All the performers are Kaua‘i residents who have been taught the authentic dances and chants by cultural experts.
Tihati Productions began in 1969 with a modest cast of six and has grown into 12 major productions across the state that today employ more than 1,000 people. Tihati Productions is now the largest and longest-running entertainment company in Hawai‘i.
