Hawaiian Cuisine with Polynesian Entertainment

Voted #1 Big Island Luau

Is there anything more soothing than the sounds of the surf blended with soulful Hawaiian steel guitars? Tables, laden and fragrant with kālua pig, island fish, lomi salmon, sashimi, and piles of pineapple and papaya? The sheer delight of teaching your keiki the joy of finger-licking poi, dancing hula to the “Hukilau,” or being wowed by a thrilling fire dance? Created for Newsweek magazine in the 1960s, the Mauna Kea Luau shares Hawaii’s history, legends, and culture through music, food, and family traditions here on the Big Island with guests from around the world. It is one of the best ways to better understand and feel more connected to all that makes Hawaii so special and unique.

Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is proud to present the Big Island’s premier luau, a tradition of authenticity that has stood the test of time.
