The Gathering of the Kings LuauThis is one of the more premium luaus, but it is well worth the money. The entertainment includes the Island Breeze Dancers and Polynesian dancers who will perform a rendition of the settlement of the Hawaiian Islands. During the show, you can eat all you want from the buffet featuring a variety of dishes in Samoan, Hawaiian, Tahitian and New Zealand style. Highlights include lomi-lomi salmon, sapsui and Tahitian rum cake.
The Royal Kona LuauThis is one of the most authentic Hawaiian luaus offered on the Big Island. Fill your belly with traditional Hawaiian foods and enjoy an evening of entertainment from hula dancers and fire dancers. The performers encourage the audience to be involved during the entertainment, and you may even be lucky enough to get up on the stage with the dancers. The entertainment will take you through the heritage of Samoa, New Zealand, Hawaii, the islands of Tahiti and more.
Dishes served include Hawaiian sweet potatoes, poi, Pulehu beef, Kalua pig and more.
The Island Breeze LuauThe Island Breeze Luau offers a delicious buffet featuring dishes including kona style poke and pig as well as an open bar, so you'll have plenty of options to eat up and wet you palate. The entertainment is more laid back than at some other luaus, but still quite fun and relaxing as you are immersed in Hawaiian history through dance and music. You can also enjoy demonstrations on how to husk a coconut and watch a show that includes dances from all the Polynesian islands .
Firenesia LuauIf you like fire, you’ll love the Firenesia Luau at the Sheraton Keauhou Bay on the Big Island. The luau begins with a buffet feast. After you dine, enjoy the performance of a young warrior searching for the ancient flames that make the islands feel so warm. In Polynesian culture, fire is a gift, and this performance is all about paying tribute to the power of fire.
Sunset Cocktail Sail and Luau ComboThis luau goes beyond the traditional food and entertainment you usually get because it includes an evening cruise. You get to watch Hawaiian dancers perform traditional dances, eat a wide variety of foods and have a great view of the islands while you are out on the water. The tour breaks the fun up into two nights of activities.
When you stay in a Big Island vacation rental, you're sure to have a luau nearby. Plan to arrive early and get your tickets ahead of time to get the best seats. Then sit back and enjoy this unique Hawaiian tradition.
