Quite possibly the best cultural experience on the islands. Go early and attend the individual island group demonstrations and the floating canoe parade.

After reading all the reviews on here, I still decided to give this luau a shot and man was I wrong. The fake pig excavation as well as the very poor acting job from the entertainers made this beginning only the tip of the iceberg. The good was absoluty terrible especially on comparison to other luau in Ohau. The pork... More

On 3/10/2014 we attended the luau. This is definitely an experience where the sum of the parts was greater than any individual component. I doubt that this is the best luau in Hawaii or maybe that's just wishful thinking. It was good overall, the food was tasty but there wasn't a huge selection, the show was entertaining, the atmosphere was... More

The luau was a waste of time and money. The host was obviously annoyed with his job and the tourists. The food was not great...seemed like a cafeteria. It felt like a church potluck. Go somewhere else for dinner and just see the Ha show - we loved that.

Too expensive for the quality presented. Really after spending 650 for a family of seven to attend, you would of thought the group photo would be free. Also to charge for parking, cheesy!

The brochure is misleading by deception as to the content of the package offered. We purchased the Ali-I Luau Package on the advice of the tour desk at our hotel as this was marketed as "the most popular package." We were picked up from our hotel with guide in situ. Enroute to the Centre, he informed us that if we... More
