Held on beautiful grounds at the Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii Loa Luau invites you to an authentic Hawaiian luau experience showcasing beautiful hula dancers and talented musicians who share the tales of Polynesia’s courageous voyagers and retell the story of the settlement of the Hawaiian Islands through live music and dance.

Indulge in the Big Island’s finest cuisine and then enjoy a musical journey through Polynesia with Hawaii Loa Luau’s new show: “Pae mai la ka wa’a i ka ‘aina” – The Canoe Has Come Ashore.

Meet the performers before the show and learn about the traditional games and cultural practices of the people. A hosted bar and a spectacular buffet dinner offer the freshest and finest ingredients found in the islands.

Storytelling begins as beautiful hula dancers and talented musicians share the tales of Polynesia’s brave and courageous voyagers – as they traveled to Hawai’i and established this land. Our family from Tahiti share the stories of their journey to Hawai’i, with the lively beat of the traditional toere drum. Your hosts for the evening tell the story of their home in Hawai’i with traditional hula. The influence of other cultures can be seen in the evolution of costumes and hula motions as we share unique and incredible history in this island of Hawai’i.
