Loosely translated, a LŪ‘AU IS A BIG FEAST with a lot of singing, dancing and fun. Lū‘au often feature homegrown ENTERTAINMENT, complete with traditional hula and POLYNESIAN FESTIVITIES. Served with a main course of kālua pig—tender, shredded pork cooked in an imu (underground oven)—and typical Hawaiian sides of poi, Okinawan sweet potatoes, lomi lomi salmon and haupia (coconut milk dessert), it’s the perfect celebration of culture and camaraderie.

SUNSET LŪ‘AU AT WAIKOLOA BEACH MARRIOTT RESORT & SPA is set at sundown next to ‘Anaeho‘omalu Bay. Marriott’s lū‘au, ISLAND BREEZE LŪ‘AU , and Hilton Waikoloa Village’s, treat guests to an IMU CEREMONY (where the pig is brought out of the underground oven), TRADITIONAL DANCES from around Polynesia and Hawaiian fare.
