Share The Article

Both Hawaii and Bali are dream travel destinations. Each offers quintessential island vibes, luxurious hotels, and an energy that just lets the good times roll. Until now, however, Hawaii vibes could be found in Hawaii and Bali vibes in Bali. But now, the Jimbaran Hub is bringing a taste of Honolulu to Bali. On the 4th of May 2023, Jimbaran Hub will host its first Lu’au, an event they’re calling The Balinesia.

This exciting and truly one-of-a-kind event in Bali will be hosted at the community and arts center, the Jimbaran Hub. Located in the popular fishing town of Jimbaran, the hub is a destination for locals, ex-pats, and tourists to all mingle and meet and is just a 6-minute drive from the beach.

Speaking to reporters about the announcements of the celebration, the Balinesia Lu’au Director, Owen Monaghan, explained the concept of May’s event. He said, “The use of the name ‘Lu’au at The Balinesia [will be the ] first Lu’au event [of its kind. It was inspired by a celebratory party in Hawaii. But the famous Balinese cultural tradition is also the attraction of this event.”

He continued, “Not only for adult tourists but to bring children will be very suitable because a special event will be held for children in the form of face painting and making Balinese canang.”Canang Sari is the daily offering of flowers, incense, fruit, and other treats for the spirits. You will see them outside buildings, homes, temples, and on the street.

The first Lu’au at The Balinesia is set to be heaven on earth for food lovers. Organizers have confirmed that there will be an all-you-can-eat buffet featuring classic Balinese dishes, delicacies from around the Indonesian archipelago, and western treats galore. There will be a traditional Balinese Babi Guling, suckling pig, which is one of the most famous traditional dishes in Bali. 


Monaghan said that the bar would be open all night, and the cocktail menu would include specialty cocktails using Balinese arak. There will also be a wide variety of local beers, international wines, and of course, soft drinks too. The food and drinks offering is really just the beginning when it comes to the Lu’au at The Balinesia.

The entertainment lineup is set to be an extravaganza. With the sunset over the ocean as the most idyllic backdrop organizers could ask for, the lineup will include professional traditional Balinese cultural performers. The cultural show will showcase the story of Hanuman as he travels throughout the Indonesian archipelago through dance, song, and fire.

As a tourist destination, Jimbrana is really a hidden gem. Often overlooked in favor of nearby Sanur or even Nusa Dua, Jimbrana’s low-ky fishing village vibes have prevailed as hotels and resorts have been welcomed into the area. Rock Bar Bali, Kubu Private Beach Club, and Jimbaran Beach Club are all fantastic destinations to settle in for a sundowner after a long day of loving life in Bali.

As a Hawaiian ' Kama Aina ' I remember Lu'au as a time when local Ohana would throw pig guts over the fence in the constant battle between 'local' and Hual'e. Lu'au is a tribal ceremony stating the Hawaiian hate of outsiders. The hotels promoted the dance and presentation in the 50's and resentful locals view it as cultural appropriation and a spite against their religion. I hope nobody goes authentic Polynesia and throws pig guts into someone's home like Hawaiians do. Aloha.

Any Bali inspired celebration in Hawaii too❓🤣Perhaps in Hawaii consuming ganja and pronouncing how forbidden it is in Bali. - Perhaps a Teheran’s Islamic Repiblic of Iran inspired celebration would be more appropriate❗️❓
