Hawaii Loa Luau


Kalahuipua'a – a magnificent part of shore on the Big Island of Hawaii is home to one of the most memorable Luau celebrations on the islands. Join the Hawaiiloa family for their weekly Saturday feast including performances of internationally renowned performers, world class cuisine and cultural activities.

Every Saturday the picturesque area called Kalahuipua’a becomes the location for a grand celebration. This pua’a (a traditional piece of land) used to be a royal fishing ground. Ancient fish ponds can be found all along the shore even today. Here, fish were bred and fattened for the royal feasts. They were distributed to the kitchens of chiefs all around the island by runners who made sure their wares arrived still fresh.

Today, you can get a taste of these royal meals as you join the weekly luau. This particular luau serves a feast befitting its location. You'll find a large variety of poke style (raw marinated) seafood as well as cooked and grilled fish. Of course, island favorites such as lomi lomi salmon and kalua pork are served, along with a wide selection of local fruit, luscious desserts, colorful vegetable dishes, and a special buffet reserved for the keiki (children). A bar serving tasty beverages of all varieties is open throughout the evening.

The celebration begins well before sunset. Make sure you arrive in time to enjoy the cultural activities before dinner. You'll be invited to join in traditional games and crafts while also getting a chance to meet the cast of the spectacular show presented later in the evening.

Open Bar

Around the time the sun touches the sea and the sky takes on a hundred gorgeous colors, the culinary team open the buffet. Enjoy this time of beauty and flavor as all your senses receive the royal treatment. The flavors of exotic and familiar food, the scent of flowers and torches around you and the colorful sunset combine into an unforgettable experience of tropical extravaganza!

Once everybody’s appetite has been satisfied, the big show begins. Fantastic dancers and musicians together create a showcase of the story of Hawaii – a combination of hula and Tahitian dance as well as traditional music and drumming. Learn about the courageous ancestors of today’s Hawaiians who braved the largest ocean on the planet to discover the remote new land of Hawaii. The story involves bravery, adventure and hardship as well as the miracle of new life on new land as the ancient Hawaiians cultivated the barren volcanic rocks to become a lush paradise.

The Hawaii Loa luau is a family friendly event that takes place in an elegant environment on historically rich land. Enjoy the beauty of the natural surroundings of the luxurious Fairmont Orchard.
