Sunset Luau


Watch as the roast pig is pulled from the resort’s imu, (Hawaiian underground oven). Following dinner take a journey from Tahiti, New Zealand, Hawaii, and Samoa through the songs and dances of these Pacific cultures. The spellbinding Samoan fire knife dance is a spectacular sight to see!

Celebrate the distinctive culture of Waikoloa Beach and the Kohala Coast at Sunset Luau. Every Monday and Wednesday, we host a quintessential luau-style evening under the stars with Hawaiian food, live music and dancing.

Gather as the sun sets over ‘Anaeho’omalu Bay and delight in classic Polynesian entertainment featuring live music, imu ceremony (the unveiling of our main course from our underground oven), traditional dances of the South Pacific and the delectable selection of contemporary and Hawaiian fare with a full open bar.
