The show portion of this was great with what you would expect with hula and fire dancers. However, the food was buffet at a restaurant and not your typical luau where there is a pig roasting underground or poi (even if gross). And they certainly...More

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!

Fine buffet dinner in the hotel restaurant by the pool, followed by a first class show, lasting an hour, which featured dancers and songs, musicians, and a fabulous fire dance.

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

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
