The first of 19 scheduled luaus marked the start of summer here at Tahiti Village on Saturday, May 5. Owners and guests enjoyed perfect weather, a delicious buffet from Tahiti Joe’s and fabulous entertainment from Hot Lava, whose authentic Polynesian singers, dancers and performers charmed and thrilled the audience.
VIP ticketholders got a 20-minute head start on the buffet, which consisted of kalua pork, Polynesian chicken, island jasmine rice, Tahitian salad, fruit salad and squares of coconut cake. There was more than enough to go around, however, and there needed to be to accommodate the near-capacity crowd.
“We couldn’t have asked for better weather,” said pool activities director Ashlie Williams, “and we received numerous positive comments on the food and entertainment. It was a great night of fun.”
The entertainment featured island songs, Polynesian dances (with audience participation) and heart-stopping performance art. The latter came courtesy of a Tongan chief twirling flaming sticks and a balance board daredevil who had everyone on the edge of their seats.
The luau is every Saturday from 7-10 p.m. throughout the summer.
After further discussion with the Clark County Health Department, we are now permitting water and non-alcoholic beverages in sealed plastic bottles inside the pool area and Lazy River for your convenience. Our latest quarterly newsletter, Issue 2 of 2012, is now available online. And by online, we mean it is embedded in this very post. The latest issue of the Tahiti Village Vacationer is densely packed from front cover to back with the kind of information you can’t get anywhere else. Enjoy!
