Chief's Luau's is a really fun experience. There are activities for everyone before the performance - which engages all ages and gets them into the mood of the event. Great dancers, attire, history, stories and humor (though humor for 16+). Food was good and all you can eat buffet. Note: speakers uncomfortably loud before show - commentary and music -... More

I studied and compared the various luau's until I was dizzy. In spite of some of the comments of the past we made the purchase. We were completely enthralled by the show and the Chief's ability to communicate with the audience. The dancers were terrific, as was the "band." The food was good - the pig was outstanding and there... More

This I have been told is one of the better Luas's to go to. It was reasonable priced. The chief is very entertaining , quite comical actually. The dances are fantastic and the fire show at the end is fantastic. The food is buffet, not bad, the alcohol is pretty ordinary . Generic brand very basic spirits and wine. Service... More

My husband and I booked this luau as a part of our 10 year anniversary vacation. It was close to Waikiki where we were staying so we didn't have to worry about driving an hour away. As soon as we walked in my breath was taken away. The location was next to a mountain side and right next to the... More

Three generations of family attended, ranging from 8 yrs to 71 years old. Every one enjoyed the pre dinner activities and the venue beside the ocean was fantastic. Meal was 4 stars, not 5. Entertainment after the meal was very good with one exception, shared by everyone at our table. Must have taken 45 minutes to get almost half the... More

On a recent trip to Honolulu, I looked around for a good luau activity and settled on this one - bought the Royal Package with Park access for the whole family. The morning of the luau, we called to add another member to the party (a relative who was also in town) - no problem, the woman on the phone... More

This was our third time at chief's luau. We live on the island and this is our favorite luau to take our visitors to. We have tried other luaus and they are not as good. The chief is a wonderful entertainer and funny too! I highly recommend chief's luau...always a great time!

Loved the whole experience. Went to Hawaii with my daughter. Booked luau through our hotel's tour desk. Bus ride to and from luau included as well as buffet and two alcoholic drinks. We made the braided headband, got a shell necklace at start. Daughter danced the hula. Loved the pig roast. Food very good. Chief is great!!!! Very genuine person.... More
