Experience up-close and personal activities with Chief's entire cast, 'imu ceremony and a sumptuous dinner buffet.

We enjoyed the staff & activities very much, but these were overshadowed by the ongoing and pervasive sexual, especially homosexual, humor which we found HIGHLY disturbing and distasteful, particularly because of the young children who were present. There were so many things to love about the Chief, including his honoring of family, marital love and God, which was why it... More

This is the best luau you can attend on Oahu or any other island! You go to this event to be entertained and The Chief and his team really deliver. The food is buffet style and pretty good but not great. It could be improved but it is fine since the show is so good. It's the show that is... More

Poor organisation between the company and their vendor resulted in us not being picked at the stated time and place. We had to take a taxi to the venue and pay in cash which we only just covered as this wasn't planned for. The company and the vendor both blame the other party but when it comes down to it... More

This wasn't bad for the money. It was an authentic luau complete with a stage performance led by the chef with music, native dances, audience participation, incredible acts with fire. Narration by the chef was quite funny at times and kept the audience fully engaged every minute. Sea Life Park itself needs updating.

We wanted to see a luau and waited until the end of our two week stay in Hawaii. Chief's Luau is totally worth the visit! We booked online and got there in plenty of time. Before the meal they have activities for everyone (spear throwing, fire starting, grass weaving, etc). The meal was amazing, and the entertainment was hilarious and... More

This was an amazing experience. Although we've been to a few luau before and this is the best, we've just been to a few. But we had the good fortune to sit next to a couple who have been to dozens but this was the first time to this one. They said they've never experienced any even close to as... More
