If you’re planning to visit Hawaii in the coming months, one thing you will want to experience is a luau. The luau is a feast in Hawaii where guests enjoy fresh food from the island while watching live performances. You’ll see dancers doing the hula while wearing festive outfits and greeting guests.

You can participate in one or more of the luaus that will take place in different areas throughout Hawaii during the year. Check out some of the best luaus to attend during your stay. These luaus take place on different parts of the island.

Hawaiiloa Luau at Fairmont Orchid

The entire grounds of the Fairmont Orchid on the Kohala coast of the Big Island are a special place to visit with cascading waterfalls, the smells of blooming tropicla flowers and the sounds of the ocean. Kalahuipuaa at the Faormont Orchid is where the Hawaiiloa Luau is held. It is known as a gathering place for Alii (royalty). No wonder why.

Add in talented native dancers and a spectacular dinner feast made from the freshest and finest ingredients found in the islands, and you have an experience not to miss. This is a wonderful way to experience the Aloha tradition of Hawaiian culture and hospitality.

You’ll have access to buffet-style authentic Hawaiian food as you watch performers while they dance. You might even get to see some beautiful fireworks at the end of the show. If you’d like to see the most exquisite cultural performances while enjoying flavorful food in a welcoming area, this luau is perfect for you.

Paradise Cove Luau

When staying in Oahu, you have the option of attending the Paradise Cove Luau. You can enjoy dinner while watching the sunset. You’ll have live entertainment in front of you, including skilled hula dancers and even flame throwers.

Like most other luaus, you can choose the specific package to have for the night. If you choose the deluxe package, you’ll have access to just about everything, including fresh food, flavorful drinks, and all the entertainment you could want. Paradise Cove offers a unique and intimate experience for those who want to experience Hawaiian culture firsthand.

While you’re in Hawaii, make sure you get to experience at least one luau. You can find entertaining and exciting luaus in different areas, including the Big Island, Kaui, Oahu, and even Maui. It’s the perfect way to spend the evening enjoying good food, fantastic entertainment, and the cultural experience of a lifetime.

If you’d like to attend a luau, make sure to reserve your spot in advance. Due to some COVID restrictions, seats are limited to leave enough space between groups of people, so it helps to book as soon as you know when you’re staying in Hawaii.
