As of September 15, 2021, all guests 12 years and older must be fully COVID-19 vaccinated since the luau is held within a restaurant setting. This means that 2 weeks must have passed since the last dose in a 2 dose vaccine series or since the one dose vaccine was administered. Photo identification matching proof of vaccination will be required from each guest. Acceptable forms of proof include completed vaccination cards in original, photocopied or digital form, or the new Hawaii SMART Health digital health pass.

Face masks covering the nose and mouth are required for all guests 2 years of age and older while indoors. While seated and consuming food or beverages, all are welcome to remove the face mask.
Thermal temperature check is required by all guests 2 years of age and older. If your temperature shows in the "red zone," you and your party will not be permitted entry.
If someone has special dietary needs, food allergies, or requests for seating assistance for people using a wheelchair or walking cane, requests must be made a minimum of 24 hours in advance.
