Like Polynesia, the Mai-Kai Dinner Attraction is a feast for all senses, and offers a perfect mix of authentic South Seas entertainment and exquisite gourmet selections. The Mai-Kai resembles a Polynesian village with palm thatched roofs, flaming torches, waterfalls, lagoons, and orchid collections. The Mai-Kai features an international cuisine with oriental specialties, and over 50 unique tropical drinks. Beautiful maidens and agile warriors perform native songs and dances during the nationally renowned Mai-Kai Islander Revue.
POLYNESIAN ISLANDER REVUE New Every Year!
The essence of Polynesia comes alive in the songs and dances of the celebrated Islanders Revue. Each year, owner and show choreographer Mireille Thornton creates new interpretations of village life in the South Pacific at the turn of the century. Ms. Thornton's inspiration comes from regular visits to the islands that comprise Polynesia: Tahiti, Aotearoa, New Zealand, Samoa, and Hawaii.
Mai-Kai visitors witness Polynesia's rich heritage in dances such as the Hawaiian Wedding song where two young lovers are separated and then reunited in marriage. Or, the spirited Tahitian solo drum dance competition from Polynesia's largest annual cultural celebration, the "Heiva I Tahiti".
This year's dynamic show boasts more musicians, drums, and brightly colored costumes that light up the stage. The detailed costumes are hand-sewn and reflect the spirit of the South Seas. They are made from hand-painted tapa cloth (from the bark of breadfruit trees), flowers, mother-of-pearl, feathers, abalone and other small seashells. The Revue dance troupe also performs outside the restaurant for private parties, charity and community functions.
Performances are enjoyed nightly (call for show times as they might change through out the season). Reservations are recommended.
During the summer months (starting in June), the Mai-Kai features a Kids Show every Sunday evening.
