Kauai visitors looking to experience Hawaii’s favorite dinner party have a new option: the Royal Luau, held at Poipu’s Koloa Landing Resort.

Two things make this luau especially noteworthy. First, there’s the menu, created by Sam Choy, one of Hawaii’s most famous chefs. The buffet table is loaded with island lures such as barbecued short ribs and cedar plank mahimahi. Then, there’s the live show, which begins as the sun sets and ends beneath the stars. Guests settle back for thrilling performances by Kauai’s own Wallis Punua and his Polynesian dance troupe. From swaying hula hips and Tahitian drums to a sizzling Samoan fire knife dance, it’s must-see entertainment. 

Catch it each Tuesday evening.
