Kona Village Resort put on the best luau I've ever been to. Here's hoping the resort opens again soon. You can check out the Facebook page hosted by other guests like me... who found this the most wonderful resort in the world.

Make sure you call first - I think some of the recent reviews here are of the Kona Resort Luau, not the village luau, since they claim to not be running them due to damage sustained last year.

I had never been to a luau so I have nothing to compare it to, but it is everything you think a luau should be and more. There is a reason that people staying at other resorts come to Kona Village for the Luau. The...More

The food was very good for a buffet. The Kalua pork was a neat twist and very good. The hotel luau grounds are nice. A great MC. As far as price, dinner + show + a drink (in Hawaii where prices are inflated typically)=worth it!

As a former travel agent, I have been to the islands numerous times. Now I go back with my family for vacations. Let's first say, you don't go to a luau for the food. It's about the ceremony, the surroundings, the entertainers, the story of...More

Beginning with the assumption that ALL luaus are overpriced, this is definitely the best I've seen. Yes, $100 per adult and $40-$60 for kids is ridiculous, but others are $80 and this was a far better show. It's NOT all you can drink, which I...More
