Royal Kona Luau
Located oceanfront at the Royal Kona Resort, the Royal Kona Luau is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in Hawaiian culture. Watch cultural demonstrations, savor a scrumptious luau buffet dinner and enjoy live Hawaiian entertainment – all in a scenic location overlooking Kailua Bay.
Upon arrival at the luau, you’ll be welcomed with a shell lei after which you can watch or participate in a hula lesson or island arts and crafts. Then witness the traditional imu ceremony, in which the kalua pua'a (roast pig) is removed from the earthen oven. It will then be time for one of the highlights of the evening, the all-you-care-to-eat buffet dinner featuring a wide variety of delicacies.
The evening culminates with a memorable Polynesian show – Voyagers of the Pacific – that tells the story of the ancient Polynesians who traveled thousands of miles across the Pacific to make Hawaii their home.
