Very lovely. Not cheesey at all. All performers are quite talented. Very organized set-up. Enjoyed it thoroughly and would recommend to others. Food delicious. Only one disappointment: With the heft price tag and the promise of the Open Bar, we arrived to get quite the...More

The luau was beautiful. The weather was wonderful, the scenery was amazing but the story line was mesmerizing. The average tourist received the Hawaiian experience while being educated through entertainment. It gave me a whole new respect for the cultural richness of the residents. The...More

This Luau is the one to go to. Very different from others, far more interesting. The pageantry portrayed the history of the people of Hawai'i in a very impressionistic, dramatic fashion. There's no "embarass the tourist" crap going on here or forced interactions. Amazing firedance...More

It was held at an historic sugar plantation, and we really enjoyed roaming around the grounds and touring the plantation house, which had been restored with period furnishings. The food was authentic, plentiful, and delicious. The...More

This luau was recommended by Norwegian Cruise Lines on the Hawaiian cruise. It was expensive( $95 + tax per person). It was awful. A HUGE commercial money maker. There were about 800 people there and nothing was authentic except for the show at the end-...More

We did not find the entertainment to be really loud and we sat in the front row next to the stage. There were lots of young children present who appeared to enjoy the show. I believe the show was over by 9pm.
