Guests booking a seven-night stay receive two free tickets to the Waikiki Starlight Luau and souvenir photo
WAIKIKI, HONOLULU, HAWAII – Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk is offering a new “Hokunani Luau” travel package that includes two complimentary tickets to the nearby Waikiki Starlight Luau and a free souvenir photo. Guests staying seven consecutive nights can take advantage of this new offer, with rates starting at just $299 per night for a one-bedroom suite with a separate living room.
“Watching a luau under a blanket of stars is one of Hawaii’s oldest, most famous traditions — and one that we know our guests will treasure,” said Susan Koehler, director of sales and marketing at Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk. “Our modern and spacious accommodations, mixed with a night of Hawaiian culture and entertainment ensures a vacation filled with comfort, history and fun.”
Guests of Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk who book a “Hokunani Luau” package will enjoy two complimentary general-seating tickets to experience an unforgettable luau, along with a souvenir photo – a $223 total value. The souvenir photo is unique to Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk’s “Hokunani Luau” package and is a special way for guests to take luau memories home and share a piece of the vacation with family and friends. Hokunani translates to beautiful stars in the Hawaiian language, and the “Hokunani Luau” package is an opportunity for guests to celebrate the unique heritage of the Pacific Islands, underneath the tropical starlight. The luau is held nightly from Sunday through Thursday and begins at 5:30 p.m.
The luau opens with a welcoming ceremony given by a traditional conch-shell blower in front of the Ocean Crystal Gazebo, who then leads ticket holders to breathtaking views on the rooftop of the Mid-Pacific Conference Center. A lei greeting, photo opportunity and cocktail reception opens-up the night, followed by interactive games for all ages to enjoy.
For dinner, guests can indulge in a feast of exotic flavors, from traditional island favorites including kalua pig, island fish, huli huli chicken, sweet potatoes and Hawaiian fried rice. Following dinner, the audience can sit back and relax to a fun Hawaiian fashion show. The night culminates with traditional Hawaiian, Tahitian and Samoan dancers taking the audience through an odyssey of Polynesian history and live traditional music that will keep guests moving their hips to the beat.
Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk is located just steps away from the white sands and turquoise ocean of Waikiki. It sits in the heart of the lively and stylish Waikiki Beach Walk, where guests can peruse through the wide selection of shopping and dining delights. More delicious local fare is available every morning with the resort’s complimentary Full-Cooked to Order breakfast, featuring fresh local fruits and hearty local favorites. Guests looking for more local Hawaiian fun can drop by Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk’s Grand Lanai for its nightly Poolside Reception, offering an assortment of complimentary refreshments, snacks and live Hawaiian entertainment.
The two complimentary tickets to the Waikiki Starlight Luau are contingent on a seven-night stay at Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk. The Waikiki Starlight Luau is located at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, only a few minutes away from Waikiki Beach Walk. Guests are welcome to upgrade their tickets to “golden circle” premier seating (a $122 value per ticket) when making their luau reservations, providing preferred table seating closest to the stage and first in line for the island buffet.
