Great show...beware of "artisans".

This was such a great experience. We were afraid it would be cheesy, but it wasn't! We did the Royal package and had great seats right up front. The food was good, and the show... read more

This was such a great experience. We were afraid it would be cheesy, but it wasn't! We did the Royal package and had great seats right up front. The food was good, and the show and view were excellent! My only complaint would be the vendors...who sold us on their "handmade" goods and gave quite lengthy spiels on how they... More

Well organised and a fun experience, chief was funny and got the audience involved, even though there were a lot of people it didn't feel like it with lots of pre show entertainment. I would recommend this luau to people going to Hononlulu.

Really enjoyed the Luau, the transport was 20 minutes late which was a bit annoying as meant we had less time doing the activities but that's my only criticism. The actual event was really good. Fab location, good food (especially the cake) and the chief was really funny. A must see!

I have been to my fair share of luaus in the past and they have all been lovely. The script is pretty similar across the board and the buffet is always great. Chief's Luau broke the mold. For the first time, I actually felt like family at his luau. There are only a handful of tables, so everyone has a... More

I had a great time at this show. It was part variety part comedy and I was entertained the whole night. It was very family friendly if you need that, and they celebrated couples and newlyweds at the end which I thought was sweet. It was cool getting a bit of Polynesian history, learning about how Hawaii was established and... More

I lived on Oahu for 4 years and went to plenty of luau's when family came to visit. Chief's Luau at Sea Life Park is by far, the best one on the island. You'll be entertained from start to finish. The food is great, the scenery is unbelievable, and the music and dancers are simply phenomenal. Bottom line: if you... More

We wanted to go to Luau, Chiefs Luau was the second best hotel recommendation and we are glad we picked it! Great interaction with guests, nice workshops before the show, very beautiful location. The show was interesting and all dances great. As a honeymooners we got to dance on the stage, under the stars, with other couples celebrating anniversary or... More

Our hotel recommended this Luau. We were picked up by shuttle. Nice view along the way. The luau setting has a nice view of the Rabbit Island. Breath taking views. The Chief made the luau very funny. Not boring at all. If you want good laugh plus audience interaction and good show. This is the place to go. The fire... More

Good entertainment, learning the Pacific cultures. We also learned and had a go if dancing Hula dance- 😊. Watched different cultural dances of the Pacific. Good is good, we booked the cheapest selection but our experience was fine. It rained during the presentation but staff are all quick to hand out ponchos. Looking around the sceneries is relaxing itself. Roberts... More
