 Tent

A tent is essential if your event is going to be outdoors in the case of rain. Tents prices can range from a few hundred to thousands of dollars, depending on the type and size of the tent.

This quick tent size reference will give you an estimate on how large of a tent you will need for your event.  Tents come in many sizes and can accommodate thousands of people. Your seating arrangement has an important influence on your tent selection. 

Theather-style seating can accommodate most people and is perfect if the guests are having dinner in another section.

Casual and formal dinner-style seating is the most common use for a luau dinner show. Cocktail event-style standing can also be used especially if you have a small space and many guests.

The Legendary Sunset Ceremonies are breathtaking experiences that showcase ancient Hawaiian traditions and Florida’s vibrant sunsets. As the sun sets, the tiki torches are lit and the luau ceremonies begin. We transport you to paradise with native chanting, the shower of flower blessing, and a traditional underground imu oven ceremony where the luau pork is cooked perfection. The ceremonies come to a mouth-watering conclusion as you get a chance to taste the delicious pork slowly roasted in banana leaves. 

Call our reservation center at (954) 669-0169 to upgrade your luau experience.

Big Kahuna Luau is held outdoors throughout the duration of the event experience.
