Well, how do you describe something so entertaining, moving, and all with delicious local foods! This was a luau with a difference as it not only had traditional dances, but told the story of some of the Hawaiian's history too. Throw in a spectacular fire dance sequence that kept you on the edge of your seat, and you have one... More

I have attended a Luau previously in Oahu. There was a definite benefit regarding having a buffet versus the plated meal that I had previously. Being that I do not eat meat, the range of options were a tremendous benefit during this luau. The food was expertly prepared and full of flavor. The luau show was an amazing story presentation...

This is NOT, I repeat, NOT, your typical touristy luau. This is a high value theatrical production done with great skill, care, love and theatrical prowess. Beautiful, exciting, and done with true love of the culture and history of Hawaiian people. Our entire family, ages 82 to 1 year old who celebrated his birthday there, loved every bit. On top...

Part of cruise ship excursion. The show was located on the grounds of an old manor house and was great. It was a combination of story telling and dancing. The food was served buffet style and was OK. The cost was pretty steep for me. The ground of the house had small local artists' booth. After the show you could... More

I have been to the Smtih's Tropical Paradise Luau also. I think the food and bar are a little better at this one. The lines are not bad and the drinks are pretty strong. The show is good though a little hard to follow. The venue is loud so at the rounders of 10 it is very hard to talk... More

Great show and the food was good too...the show was professional quality lighting and dancing . The only suggestion is they should limit the number of people that go on stage at one time to learn hula. I couldn't move and people were stepping on each other

This is a very well executed event. The venue is spacious, and all tables have a good view of the stage. The food buffet is very good, and the bar had a good choice of beer, wine as well as two cocktails (mocktails available for the kids). The highlight was the Luau show, which was of a very high standard... More
