My wife and I received a visit to the Chief's Luau as a wedding gift. Chief Sielu did a fabulous job personalizing our experience when he recognized all the married couples and had us on stage for a dance. He shared his family legacy and educated us on the Polynesian Culture. The entertainers where all of Polynesian decent and were... More

I mean, I was named a Chief by a chief. Score one for me. Unfortunately, I'm just not a buffet dinner kind of guy... It's just not my thing. Luckily there are a couple of bars with adult beverages and good entertainment. Would I ever do a luau again? Probably not, but I don't regret going to this one. Definitely... More

Beautiful view and a really fun time. Good entertainment and good food. You will be entertained from the moment you arrive. The buffet style meal is served after the pig has been uncovered by the cooks - good time for a photo op if you are gathered around the cooking pit. Prior to the meal, there are stations set up...

We really enjoyed the Chief's Luau. The Chief was hilarious and a very talented guitarist. Great entertainment - amazing fire dance. The food was good and the setting was perfect. We would definitely recommend the Chief's Luau to anyone looking for a great night of entertainment.

For our 30th wedding anniversary we took our adult children and spouses to Oahu for 10 days. We did 3 hikes, toured the entire Island but everyone agreed this was the best part of our trip. Beautiful location, fun activities and the food was great but I have to admit I didn't like Poi. The entertainment was educational but funny... More

My husband and I honeymoon'd in Hawaii in Oct, 2014 and the Chief's Luau at Sea Life Park was recommended by my sister who attended before. This excursion was absolutely worth every penny. From the motor coach ride to seeing the scenic view on the way to arriving to the Sea Life Park, we LOVED every MINUTE! Unexpected parts of... More

This was our first Luau and we enjoyed it very much. The entertainment is non-stop and of great quality. The Chief really keeps things moving and has quite the sense of humor. The sun sets on the Pacific during the show-great view! Our friend from Honolulu went with us and said "this is the best luau" she has attended-great review... More

Wow what a fantastic evening. Due to the end of a tropical storm there was worry that the show would be cancelled. Instead we were treated to a show that was hosted under the Pavilion which offered an intimate and close up experience. I have already told my travel agent about our great experience and have been telling anyone we... More

This was our third trip to the islands and by far the best Luau we have ever attended. Food was excellent but the entertainment was paramount and should not be missed. The Chief, his family and entertainers put on an outstanding show.
