Kona Kai Resort & Spa, the legendary Noble House Resort located across from Point Loma on San Diego’s Shelter Island, is excited to announce its first Luau-themed celebration over Labor Day weekend on Saturday, September 4. The perfect event to partake in before the Summer ends, guests will be welcomed with Kona Kai’s signature drink, the Pineapple Rum Swizzle, fresh leis, and pre-show activities such as traditional fire dancers, hoola hoops for kids, and live music for all to enjoy.


The Labor Day Luau buffet dinner will feature traditional Hawaiian dishes such as Kalua Pig, Pineapple Chicken, BBQ Pork, Mahi with Mango Glaze, Spam Musubis, Mixed Vegetables and more. The dessert table is the perfect way to cap the festive tropical evening off featuring sweet treats including Ice Cream Bars, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Lasada, and Cocunut Cake.


Established in 1953 with the Kona Kai Resort & Spa Club, Kona Kai was one of the first developments on the predominantly Polynesian-themed Shelter Island. The Kona Kai Resort & Spa Club was a marina, intended from the start to serve high-end yachts, and it developed into the premiere marina in San Diego. The catalog of celebrities mooring pleasure boats there included Clark Gable, Burt Lancaster, Jack Lemmon, Gregory Peck, Jimmy Durante, Dick Van Dyke, Liberace, and many more. The Labor Day Luau event is a tribute to the property’s rich history celebrating today’s modern amenities.
