FREE POLYNESIAN LUAUS AND SHOWS ON THE BIG ISLAND In addition to impressive dance performances, all of these luaus include stunning parties from the Hawaiian Islands and Polynesia. Cultural classes include lei making, hula classes, Hawaiian Lomilomi massage, Lauhala knitting, ukulele classes and Hawaiian quilting. Visit the Royal Hawaiian Center website for the full schedule. Classes are first-come, first-come, so show up early if you want a place.
The Royal Hawaiian Center is the best place to host a variety of free cultural activities, almost every day of the week. Like most luaus, this one is also family-friendly and includes activities for children, such as learning hula and getting a Hawaiian tattoo. While you can find free hula shows (dancing), there are no free luaus, which include food & entertainment. Luaus Kihei & Wailea Wailea offers beautiful gardens by the sea for your luaus, where you can enjoy wonderful shows, great food and a spectacular sunset.
The luau at sunset at Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa is one of the most popular Luaus on the Big Island for good reason. If you're just more excited about the full luau experience, read on for a description of all the luaus organized on the Big Island.
