Spend an evening under the colorful glow of a Hawaiian sunset at a Big Island luau located on the oceanfront lawn at the Royal Kona Resort. Enjoy a wide array of Hawaiian arts and crafts, followed by the unearthing of the succulent roasted pork from the underground imu oven before diving into an all-you-can-eat luau dinner buffet accompanied by free-flowing refreshing beverages. If that wasn't enough, the Coconut Grove will feature the award-winning Polynesian show “Voyagers of the Pacific", a spectacle filled with traditional Hawaiian hula, the thrum of the Tahitian ori, and the heart-stopping fire dance of Samoan siva afi. With the call of the conch and the lighting of the torches, let the beat of the native island drums beckon you!

What is a luau?
A luau is a traditional Hawaiian gala featuring food and entertainment. In ancient Hawaii, the feast would normally feature simple but tasty cuisine like kalua pig, a pulled pork dish cooked underground, squid laulau, a seafood dish made with taro leaves and coconut milk and poke, cubed fish marinated with sea salt and seaweed.

In modern times, a luau is often held in celebration of graduations, birthdays, weddings and other occasions, and preparations are a family affair that begins at least a few days before the luau itself. One of the most iconic aspects of a luau is the "imu" or underground oven made of heated lava rock in which a whole pig wrapped in ti leaf is cooked using indirect heat for hours on end.

Performances can range from professional bands and dancers, to a kanikapila jam session where friends and family will pick-up an ukulele with dancers jumping up to perform if a song tickles their fancy.
