Overview

The Hawaii Alive Luau Show is an outstanding show that brings you a unique and authentic Polynesian cultural experience through live traditional chants, music, drumming and dancing from the islands of Hawaii, Tahiti and Samoa. The show is located within the Marriott's enchanting tropical gardens and includes live music, an interactive host, traditional and modern hula, ancient chants, a chance to learn the hula yourself, Tahitian dancing, and the thrilling Samoan fire knife. We also offer optional private dining prior to the show, which you can enjoy an All You Can Eat Hawaiian Buffet, with just your family or guests in the open air at the Kaua'i Marriott's Kukui oceanfront restaurant.

We had a great time. This was our first Luau! Dinner is with the hotel and the show is separate. All seats at the Luau are great!

Presented on the grounds of the Kuai Marriott Resort, a true paradise! Music and dance from all around Polynesia. Can't praise these energetic and graceful dancers enough! Put this in your itinerary, you won't regret it. ALOHA!

We had the option of booking the show with dinner food or without it, and we were happy we didn't book the dining option as you won't dine at the same time as watching the show. I have to admit that I didn't expect much...More

We were first under the impression this would be a luau where you are at a table eating and watching a show. The food is served way before the show at a completely different place than the show. We ate at several authentic hawaiian restaurants...More

First of all it's not a real luau where you go in eat and watch your show. The food is in a different part of the hotel. That means if you want a drink while watching your show you need to bring it with you....More

For tickets, go to Hawaii Live Luau website. Select "show only" and "No", you don't have to be a guest at the Marriott to attend the show. Compared the NCL backed luau, this is much smaller, intimate, a family affair and a... More
