It’s almost time to let the good times roll! Or as they say in New Orleans, “Laissez les bon temps rouler”! With genuine Louisiana music and classic French fare, you can celebrate Mardi Gras on the gorgeous beaches of Maui!
So if you haven’t made your Mardi Gras 2014 plans yet, our Maui hotel and Cajun delights await.
Zydeco Music Concert
February 22nd is a great time to be staying at our Maui hotel because we’re within driving distance of the Castle Theater. That’s the evening that the popular venue will be hosting a Cajun music concert and pre-show dinner. The groups on tap are C.J Chenier’s Red Hot Louisiana Band and Buckwheat Zydeco’s IIs Sont Partis Band. Ticket prices start at $45 per person and the music’s slated to kickoff at 7:30 p.m. sharp.
Cajun music is not the only Mardi Gras essential located near our Maui hotel. There’s also authentic French cuisine. You’ll find it year round at places like Gerard’s Restaurant and La Provence. Gerard’s is situated in Lahaina and La Provence is nestled in Maui’s upcountry. Both offer fabulous French dishes. Gerard’s serves such staples as cassolettes, foie gras, duck confit, profiteroles and crème brulee. La Provence, on the other hand, specializes in crepes and other light, lunchtime fare.
La Perouse Bay Area
In honor of the holiday, you may also want to visit La Perouse Bay. Located in Wailea, it’s the area where the first French explorer set foot on our lovely island. The man’s name was Admiral Jean-Francois de Galaup. The area around the bay is home to the Ahihi-Kinau Nature Reserve, Makena State Park and the King’s Highway. The state park is an exceptionally nice place to visit if you want to get in a little beach time.
