Pricing & Availability


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 $30/person and includes front row seating, priority for buffet, lei greeting, and Hawaiian appetizers (pupus).

Guidebook Reviews

Fodor's Guidebook:

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.
