Fairmont Kea Lani Blends Traditional Thanksgiving Fare with Hawaiian Culture in an Island-style Feast on November 23
The island of Maui provides a picturesque backdrop to the upcoming Thanksgiving feast at the illustrious Fairmont Kea Lani Resort. With the gentle waves of Polo Beach whispering nearby, the Polo Lawn is set to host an opulent island-style Thanksgiving dinner on November 23 from 5 pm to 8:30 pm. Underneath the soft glow of the Hawaiian moon, guests can partake in a buffet meticulously crafted to infuse traditional Thanksgiving fare with a touch of local flair.
The heart of the feast is the traditional Hawaiian imu, a type of underground oven where a pig is typically slow-cooked to perfection. This ancient cooking method is a nod to the rich cultural heritage of the island, providing a unique centerpiece to the celebration. However, the imu is just the start. The carving station will feature succulent roasted free-range turkey and Kula honey-glazed ham, ensuring that the essence of Thanksgiving is well honored.
As the night unfolds, the buffet unveils a plethora of delectable dishes. The dessert station, laden with an array of sweet treats, beckons the guests to indulge in a sinful journey of flavors. For the little ones, or “keiki” as they are affectionately known in Hawaii, and the adults, special holiday refreshments will be available to add a sparkle to the night’s festivities.
The Fairmont Kea Lani is pulling all stops to ensure a memorable experience. The feast is not just a tribute to the rich culinary tradition but also a feast for the senses. Amidst the oceanfront views, live music will serenade the guests as they dine under the starlit sky, making every moment at the Polo Lawn a cherished memory.
This grand feast is an invitation to both locals and visitors to come together and celebrate the spirit of Thanksgiving in a setting that is as beautiful as the tradition itself. Each element, from the Hawaiian imu to the Kula honey-glazed ham, is carefully selected to provide a blend of tradition and local culture. The Fairmont Kea Lani’s Thanksgiving dinner is not just a meal, but an event that encapsulates the beauty and hospitality of Maui, creating a tapestry of unforgettable memories.
This unique blend of tradition and island magic is a hallmark of the Fairmont Kea Lani’s approach to celebrating the holidays, offering a distinctive experience that resonates with the serene beauty of Maui. Reservations are highly encouraged to ensure a spot at this exclusive event, where the joy of Thanksgiving will meld seamlessly with the enchanting ambiance of Maui.
