Pricing & Availability


COVID-19 UPDATE: The luau has reopened, operating on most Mondays & Wednesdays (and Thursdays during the summer). Temporary changes include 1) buffet replaced with table service, 2) all parties at private tables, and 3) no cooked-pig ceremony or audience-participated cultural activities. 

AVAILABILITY: This luau is selling out weeks in advance. If none of the available dates work for you and you are a party of 4+, please submit our waitlist form, noting if both premier or general seating would work. 


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 dinner (current menu) 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.

Pricing & Seating Options

General seating pricing is now $165.22 + tax ($81.18 for ages 6-12, free for ages 5 & under). Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, this reflects everyone getting a private table, the reduced capacity of the luau due to local COVID regulations, and it includes gratuity for waitstaff serving your table. If comparing to other options, please make sure to take that all into account, as well as that you are comparing the final prices (after taxes & fees).

Limited premier seating is also available at $200.55 + tax ($116.51 for ages 6-12, free for ages 5 & under) and includes center seating in the first 3 rows, priority service, lei greeting, and Hawaiian appetizers (pupus).

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.
