Hyatt Luau Drums of the Pacific begins with the call of the conch, the beating of the drums and the echoes of the Hawaiian chant. Hawaii's most exciting luau is complete with an authentic imu ceremony and the exotic flavors of native Hawaiian cuisine.
The authentic dances and music from cultures of Hawaiian, Samoan, Tahitian, Rarotonga, Tuamotus, Tongan and Maori are featured in the Drums of the Pacific Polynesian Spectacular (a Tihati Production). You will journey through the islands of Polynesia as you enjoy the tastes of Hawaii, and end your evening with a three-man fire knife dance! They recently installed a state-of-the-art lighting system for the stage. The LED lights dramatically improve the show making the costumes pop and adding color, and a new haze machine adds a mysterious aspect in some of the dances.
As you arrive, you will be greeted with a flower lei for the ladies and a shell lei for the gentlemen. Listen to the music of Hawaii as you participate in hula lessons, coconut tree climbing, poi ball lessons and finally the unearthing of the pig that's been cooked in an underground oven.
Dinner features Huli Huli Chicken, Imu Kalua Pork, Macadamia Nut Crust Island Fish, Makamaka Vegetables, Molokai Purple Sweet Potato, Creamed Taro & Leaf with Coconut Milk, Polynesian Fried Rice, Soba Noodle Salad, Fresh Sliced Tropical Fruits, Lomi Lomi Salmon, Pacific Ahi Poke, Kauai Taro-Pounded Poi, Upcountry Baby Green Lettuces, Namasu of Maui Onions, Cucumbers and Carrots, and Taro rolls with Whipped Lilikoi Butter.

Kevin's Activity Tips:
A luau is a must-do event for the first-time Hawaii visitor. Personally, I never get tired of good food, open bar, sunset views, and Hawaiian music and dance.
The most important thing about attending a luau is WHERE YOU SIT!!! You are much better off sitting up front at the second best luau than sitting in the back at the best luau. Read that again and let it sink in! If you are ordering a few weeks before your vacation, go with PREMIER reserved seating at one of the luaus that offer that option. It is really nice to be able to walk in the luau grounds a few minutes before the show starts knowing that you'll be able to sit in the first few rows of tables and not get stuck way in the back! The Hyatt Regency Luau at Kaanapali is famous for offering an energetic show that guests appreciate. It is now possible to get VIP seating, which will improve your luau experience over being in the general admission section.
