Why Book a Luau on the Big Island?

The most recommended way to spend your evening on the Big Island is at a Hawaiian luau. You can enjoy an evening of Polynesian dance, music, a fire-knife show, and a dinner buffet of traditional Hawaiian and local cuisine. All luaus on the Big Island include an open bar, too. You can find all of the best Hawaiian luaus right here, including Royal Kona Luau, Island Breeze Luau, Hawaii Loa Luau, Ho'omau Luau, Pilikana Luau, and Legends of Hawaii.

Local Expert Tips

  • Luaus fill up quickly so advance reservations of 4 to 6 weeks are recommended.
  • Pick a luau that's close to your resort. Attending one that's close to your hotel would mean less hassle when going back.
  • We recommend wearing casual resort attire. Men usually wear aloha shirts and shorts, while women wear long dresses with shawls. Flat shoes work best because you'll be in either a sandy or grassy area
  • Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun. The event will be starting at sunset.
  • Gratuity is already included in the price so tips are not needed.
