More about this activity


Kona Luau Shell Location

Enjoy the calm waters of Kailua Bay and spectacular sunset views from the Kona Oceanfront Luau grounds. Located fronting the Royal Kona Resort in Kailua-Kona, this is one of Kona’s most central and accessible shows, only 8.8 miles from Kona International Airport.

The Show

Focusing on the Pacific Islands as a whole, this luau offers a blend of both the culture and history of Polynesia through song, dance, and food. Guests are invited to join in lei-making activities, hula lessons, and photo opportunities with the cast. As the sun sets, the torches are lit and the imu ceremony begins, where the roasted pig is unearthed from the underground oven. In addition to a variety of Polynesian songs and dances, this luau closes with the exciting and dangerous Samoan fire knife dance. This event runs Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Luau Dinner

An assortment of traditional and contemporary Hawaiian dishes are featured on the menu. Hawaiian classics include kalua pig, chicken luau, Lomi Lomi salmon, fresh fish, haupia, and poi, as well as modern-day dishes like macaroni salad, teriyaki beef, and BBQ chicken. Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free options are all available. Guests can also enjoy beer, wine, well-drinks, mai tais, and non-alcoholic beverages from the open bar.

    Thank you so much for making our evening extra special! You took care of my kids better to the point where I felt like a king. I guess that’s how you Hawaiians do it, huh? That’s what this “ALOHA” word is all about. Thank you again. We’ll come back and your luau with everyone we can.
