Loved this place. Extraordinary how the staff are a large percentage of students working the program for education!!! I LOVE that!! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Our guide was Anne, and we found her informative, caring, and sweet. The dinner at the Prime/crab buffet was great. But the show at the end of the day, was exquisite!! Ha breath of life.
This is a gem of humanity that every person should experience. The entertaining education about various peoples of Polynesia encourages a broader appreciation for culture worldwide, the value of learning others, and the beauty harnessed in tradition. The show “Ha: Breath of Life” was absolutely breathtaking. The demonstration of family, leadership, tribal loyalty, battle, and forgiveness through dance and song is stirring to the core. Dinner is also delicious, but the true value is being immersed in another world for the day. Strongly recommended.
