Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa to Host Summer Sunset Luaus for 14th Straight Year

Posted May 21st, 2014 Media Buzz

San Diego – The Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa will host its Summer Sunset Luaus for the 14th year in a row beginning June 27. The celebration of the time-honored Hawaiian tradition includes live music, hula dancers, fiery torch dancers, and a beach buffet featuring a roasted Kalua pig.

Luaus will be held on Fridays from June 27 – August 29 with the exception of July 4 (a luau will take place Saturday, July 5 instead) and on Tuesdays from July 22 – August 19. For more information and tickets, visit

“Our beachside luaus bring you as close to Hawaii as you can get without having to venture across the Pacific,” said General Manager Mike Staples. “Both resort guests and locals clamor for this party every year and we love providing the experience for them. After nearly a decade and a half, it seems a San Diego summer would be incomplete without a Catamaran luau. We look forward to seeing your ‘ohana (family) beneath our palm trees on the shore of Mission Bay.”

Local luau entertainment specialist Pride of Polynesia provides the authentic island music and dancers. Executive Chef Steven Riemer and his team create the all-you-can-eat buffet, which includes the roasted pig, miso-glazed salmon, guava chicken with grilled pineapple, Shoyu jasmine fried rice, and several salads and desserts.

All guests will receive a lei upon entering the luau while guests 21 years of age and older will also be given a mai tai, a Hawaiian Island favorite and the signature drink of the Catamaran’s Moray’s Lounge. A cash bar is available for the duration of the event from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Tickets are $45.00 for adults ($64.00 for non-resort guests) and $17.00 for children 5-12 years of age ($29.00 for non-resort guests). Children under five years of age are free. The price includes taxes and gratuity. Group and military discounts are available. For a video of the event, click here: Luau.
