Go to a Lu‘au

101 Things to Do (Big Island) - - DINING & ENTERTAINMENT -

Loosely trans­lated, a lu‘au is a big feast with a lot of singing, danc­ing and fun. Lu‘au of­ten fea­ture home­grown en­ter­tain­ment, com­plete with tra­di­tional hula and Poly­ne­sian fes­tiv­i­ties. Served with that is a main course of kalua pig—ten­der, shred­ded pork cooked in an imu (un­der­ground oven)—and typ­i­cal Hawai­ian sides of poi, sweet pota­toes, lomilomi salmon and hau­pia. It’s the per­fect cel­e­bra­tion of cul­ture and ca­ma­raderie.

The Sun­set Luau at the Waikoloa Beach Mar­riott Re­sort & Spa treats guests to an imu cer­e­mony, where the pig is brought out of the un­der­ground oven, as well as tra­di­tional dances from around Poly­ne­sia and a se­lec­tion of con­tem­po­rary and Hawai­ian fare—all as the sun sets over ‘Anaeho‘omalu Bay.
