Have a Blast with the Family at Royal Kona Resort’s Voyagers of the Pacific Luau
Who can resist a bit of culture when there’s entertainment included in a stunning outdoor setting?
The history and culture of the Hawaiian Islands are unique, and it is perhaps for this reason that the Islands are such a popular vacation destination whether you are coming from the U.S., Europe, or Japan. So, if you are in the mood for a memorable evening in a beautiful setting that will enthral and enchant, then we suggest you book a place for yourself and your family for the Voyagers of the Pacific Luau at Royal Kona Resort in Kailua Bay. After all, it was the South Pacific Islanders who first colonized the islands of Hawai’i, so what greater excuse do you need to experience this extra-special luau?

The entertainment will last for roughly three hours, beginning at 5 p.m. in the early evening, which is ideal timing if you have a number of youngsters in your family. What feedback tells us is that children especially love the theatre and pageant of dramatic dances, and especially the Samoan fire knife dance. Add traditional Hawai’ian food and rousing songs and you have a perfect evening’s entertainment for all the family.
When it comes to the food, a lot of thought has been put into the all-you-can-eat buffet with plenty of options for those of you with dietary restrictions, such as vegetarian dishes, gluten-free dishes, and even dairy-free dishes. And yes, you read that correctly, it is an ‘all-you-can-eat buffet’ with such treats as teriyaki beef, Kalua pork, steamed and sauteed local fish, as well as some more tropical delights including Hawaiian Haupia pudding and Waipio Valley poi.
The good news is that while you are enjoying your meal, there is no chance you will miss any of the show as the slow and steady beating of a drum in the background will forewarn you that the entertainment will shortly be ready to begin. The even better news is there is a fabulous bar where you will be able to enjoy a Mai Tai, a beer, some wine or a wide choice of soft and alcohol-free drinks.
Getting there is easy
The location for this spectacle is the Royal Kona Resort on Alii Drive, Kailua-Kona. If you are staying on the Kona side of the Big Island and have chosen not to hire a car for your vacation, or you just fancy an evening off from being the family chauffeur, you can either catch one of the regular buses, which will cost around US$5.00 or get a taxi which will cost around US$25.00, with either mode of transport taking roughly 25 minutes or less. However, if you’re staying at the Royal Kona Resort, then the luau is just a stroll away from your room. One of the great advantages of going by bus or taxi is that you can really relax and take in all the scenery and vistas rather than having to keep your eyes on the road as you listen to your passengers saying “Ooh! Look at that!” and “Isn’t that amazing?”
