Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

Which luau to attend on the Big Island? Right now the answer is “Whichever one you you are able to find a table at when you are booking three weeks or more in advance.” The Waikoloa Marriott luau has high quality food and they have all the essential luau basics; their kalua pig and Molokai sweet potatoes are especially tasty. (by the way, Molokai sweet potatoes have an incredibly deep dark purple color). Be sure to stroll down by the ancient fishponds … at sunset on a calm evening you can get an incredible picture of the palm trees of Anaehoomalu Beach reflecting onto the water of the fishpond. This luau is only held twice a week, and advanced reservations are necessary.
