Pricing & Availability


COVID-19 UPDATE (Jan): An official reopening date has not yet been set, and the luau will likely remain suspended through at least February.


The beachfront sunset luau at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa is the place to be for a taste of Hawaiian culture. Against the backdrop of the picturesque sunsets over ‘Anaeho‘omalu Bay, the entertainment takes guests on a journey to Tahiti, New Zealand, Samoa, and Hawaii through the songs and dances of these Pacific Island cultures, culminating in the high-energy Samoan fire knife dancing to end the night.

The buffet dinner includes both traditional and contemporary dishes, and an open bar is included in admission and features local beers, wine, specialty Hawaiian cocktails, and more. Prior to the show, guests have the opportunity to participate in various Hawaiian crafts and games, meet Hawaiian entertainers, and experience the traditional unearthing of the cooked pig.

Premier seating is an additional $35/person (+ tax) and includes front row seating, priority for buffet, lei greeting, and Hawaiian appetizers (pupus). 

Booking Tip

If none of the available dates work for you or you prefer a luau located in downtown Kona, please consider our Kona luau [note: this other luau is not accepting bookings until January 2021].

The Sunset Luau was fabulous. So glad we picked this one. Music, dancers, food and drinks were superb. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Easy to deal with. People very friendly, good food for buffet, drinks generous, entertainment was very good. All in our party from age 3-63 had a wonderful time. Would do again. It was a perfect Hawaii experience.

This was fantastic, highly recommend it. Great way to meet people on the island.

Guidebook Reviews

Marriott Luau: Overlooking beautiful Anaehoomalu Bay with a spectacular Samoan fire dance performance

Big Island Revealed Guidebook:

A luau can be a blast, and they are highly recommended

Moon Guidebook:

Attending a luau is like going to dinner theater. It’s a good opportunity to try a lot of local foods at once. If you really enjoy a good Broadway show, then you might enjoy a luau, and kids seem to love them.
