While visiting the big island of Hawaii our family went to the Luau at the King Kamehameha hotel. Their theme was "Ohana" (family) and showed traditions of the the islands of the Pacific. The food was pretty good and we all had a great time.

Mahalo for sharing about your evening at the lu'au. 'Ohana is one of the important treasures we have in Hawai'i and we are so glad you were able to meet and learn about the members of our 'ohana from throughout Polynesia.

This was our first luau and lived up to all our expectations. The food was fantastic. The show was incredible. Loved the open bar before the show started. We were staying at the hotel so it was very convenient for us.

A great production and good food. It is wise to arrive by 4.45 if you want to be near the front of the line - first come, first seated.

If you call the concierge desk directly, they will take care of you. They gave us a kama'aina discount. We sat right by the stage and hit the buffet first. Drink station as well.
