Description

Join in on a feast for the senses at this celebration at the Royal Kona Resort Luau. Music, dance, and Polynesian culture combine under the starry night sky as you savor an island-style buffet. Take part in arts and crafts, witness a traditional imu ceremony, and be awed by the fire dancing finale.

As you enter the beautiful luau grounds, you're greeted with an exquisite shell lei. Say hello to your hosts and listen to the storyteller recount legends of the South Pacific, including those of the night marchers—ghosts of ancient warriors—against a backdrop of flickering torches. Head to the bar for a tropical Mai Tai or an island-brewed beer before heading to your seat.

From the stage drifts Hawaiian folk music, a relaxed soundtrack that pairs perfectly spectacular views of the Kona Coast sunset. Dine on local delicacies before watching a show that features the graceful movements of hula dancers. The night ends with the rhythms of hypnotic beating drums and an epic fire dance finale.

The food was great...show was wonderful. This was our first one and we were impressed. The only drawback was i payed the 5 dollar parking at the machine and when we left, we had to pay an additional 18 dollars which was not suppose to happen.
