Luau of Hawaii

A luau is a traditional Hawaiian feast and no first trip to Hawaii is complete without attending one. Most luau in Hawaii are catered towards visitors, so expect a grand celebration of food, entertainment and learning about Hawaiian and Polynesian culture.

Bring your appetite since you’ll be feasting on a magnificent Hawaiian spread of kalua pig (pork cooked in a traditional pit oven), lau lau (beef, pork, chicken, or fish wrapped in taro leaves) and poi (Polynesian staple starch made of taro).

Listen to traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music and chants. Watch hula dancers tell beautiful stories of Hawaiiana with their elegant and graceful movements. Many luau also highlight greater Polynesia by featuring Samoan fire dancers and mesmerizing Tahitian dancers. If you’ve got the courage, you may even get the chance to dance the hula in front of your entire luau.
