The Aloha Spirit is Alive In Mauritius

Outrigger Resorts was founded almost 70 years ago in Waikiki, Hawaii. And although the company is global today, we still enjoy celebrating our roots.

Some big and authentic Hawaiian flavors, hula dancing and Mai Tai cocktails have now come ashore at Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort. Every Saturday, the Resort honors its unique origin with a unique “Hawaiian night” celebration. Guests are invited to experience and celebrate the culture and food of Hawaii.

The night takes place in 2 main spaces of the resort: the Mercado restaurant, for dinner; and Bar Bleu, for dancing and entertainment.

During the Hawaiian Nights, Mercado serves a buffet filled with mouth-watering Hawaiian dishes including Big Island clam-lemongrass soup, Hawaiian-style fish tacos with mahi mahi, whole kalua pork, huli huli chicken, beef hekka and grilled calamari with potato puree, to name a few examples. The charcuterie section features poke, lomilomi salmon, SPAM® musubi, potato mac salad and sesame cabbage salad. 

The guest favorites?  Kalua pork and Spam musubi! Oh, and the welcome cocktails.

Upon arrival, hosts and dancers dressed in hula-style dancers serve Mai Tais to welcome guests. 

For a truly Hawaiian experience, there is also a show with hula dancers beginning at 9pm at Bar Bleu – to celebrate where we come from. This part is of great interest for guests who like seeing the show. The show is followed by a DJ so people can dance.

The Hawaiian nights are quite popular among guests. It is even already largely appreciated by Mauritian people too as a great place to be on Saturdays, as this is unique in Mauritius.

Hawaiian Nights takes place every Saturday 6:30-10 p.m. at Mercado in the Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort. Hips start gyrating with hula dancing taking place at the adjacent Bar Bleu beside the beach from 9 p.m.

The cost is MUR1850 (US$50) per adult; teenagers MUR1750 ($47 US); children 4-11 MUR 550 ($15 US); and free for children under 4. For further information and bookings, email fbsec.mauritius@outrigger-mu.com or call the food and beverage concierge: +230 623 5010.
