My parents and I recently attended this luau, we were picked up in Wakiki, the bus was delayed in Wakiki and there was confusion with our armbands prior to entering the event , which made our arrival 5:30 pm. The luau preactivities were ending, the line for a tattoo was very long with only one artist. We did not have... More

The setting for this luau alone is worth the trip. It's a little further away then a luau at a hotel but what a beautiful landscape and great show. The chief was so funny and the show was quite entertaining. If you're going to a luau, this is the one to see and enjoy. There are also activities prior to... More

CHIEF SIELU was awesome! Him and his warriors and his tribe dancers were very entertaining. Food was great, activities prior to the luau was great, the dancing and the show was great, but the best part of the show is Chief Sielu. He is funny! Quick with the jokes. And when it's time he can touch your hearts with his... More

Before the the luau you got to participate in a variety of activities: spear throwing, making grass headbands, trying to make fire, a stick game, learning to hula, and even purchase some crafts. The luau was amazing and a wonderful show! The food was great! You got to experience many different cultural dances. The chief was engaging and entertaining. Some... More

Fun all the way, from the pick up at the hotel to the entertainment and banquet. We seemed to have been the last to arrive, so didn't get time to participate in the hands on activities of making head bands from leaves or learning the hula. But the staff looked after everyone well. The banquet was great, plenty of food... More
