Overview

The Hawaii Alive Luau Show is an outstanding show that brings you a unique and authentic Polynesian cultural experience through live traditional chants, music, drumming and dancing from the islands of Hawaii, Tahiti and Samoa. The show is located within the Marriott's enchanting tropical gardens and includes live music, an interactive host, traditional and modern hula, ancient chants, a chance to learn the hula yourself, Tahitian dancing, and the thrilling Samoan fire knife. We also offer optional private dining prior to the show, which you can enjoy an All You Can Eat Hawaiian Buffet, with just your family or guests in the open air at the Kaua'i Marriott's Kukui oceanfront restaurant.

Let me start by saying that this is a very good show. Because the cast is largely made up of local teenagers (many from the local hula school), the show has the feel of an amateur/family production. My only issue with the show was that...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!
