Hawaiian Luau

A Celebration and Feast

Please note : For virus mitigation efforts, the Luau is currently not being offered. 

No visit to Hawaii is complete without experiencing a luau. Only, the Hale Koa Hotel Luau isn’t your typical luau. It’s got everything you’d expect and then some, for a price that’s hard to imagine. In Hawaiian, “luau” means party or celebration, and the Hale Koa Hotel Luau fittingly includes a special tribute to celebrate our military service members and families. It’s a moving experience for the whole family to enjoy time and again.

Luau Dancers

The Hale Koa Hotel Luau is outside in our dedicated Luau Garden, enveloped in lush, tropical foliage and set under the stars. Some seats are covered to protect you from the elements while taking full advantage of the outdoor setting. Come early to enjoy an island rum punch or non-alcoholic drink while you take in some signature pre-luau activities. You’ll find coconut tree climbers, poi ball swingers and artisans who can show you how to craft a beautiful lei or wreath.

When the conch shell sounds around 6:15 p.m., it’s time to gather for the traditional imu pit ceremony. The customary centerpiece of a Hawaiian luau meal is kalua pork that’s been cooked all day in a special underground oven, or imu. It makes the meat tender and extremely flavorful. The Hale Koa Hotel Luau is the only full-service luau on the island. When you reach your seat, you’ll find family-style appetizers waiting before your plated entrée selections arrive ahead of family-style dessert selections. (Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options are also available. Please note your requests when you buy tickets). There’s also a cash bar full of tropical drinks. Little umbrellas and all.

While your meal is a feast for your palate, the Hale Koa Hotel Luau entertainment treats the rest of your senses with a musical journey throughout Polynesia. Traditions from Tahiti, Samoa, Hawaii and New Zealand are showcased through hula, music and spectacular fire dancing and knife dancing. 

Due to virus mitigation efforts, the luau is currently not being offered.
