Chief's Luau is TripAdvisor's highest rated luau in the state of Hawaii. It is the ultimate authentic, interactive and romantic experience that culminates with a spectacular 10-minute, 8-man fire knife dance. You will feel you were invited to the Chief's backyard. Experience up-close and personal activities with Chief's entire cast, 'imu ceremony and a sumptuous dinner buffet. Stunning ocean-mountain vista, the smallest and most intimate of all luaus on Oahu, located only 25 minutes from Waikiki. Produced by Chief Sielu Avea.

Like most people, we couldn't choose from the many different luaus available. So we asked our concierge who recommended this. Pros: short bus ride away (excellent guides with cousin Jay and Kay!) and only goes for 4 hours so you're not spending all day in a tourist trap. Not pushy at all with small amount of souvenir sales available. Supporting... More

We attended the Chief's Luau and had the best experience at a luau ever!!! The Chief is a great entertainer as well as wonderful, kind and caring man who touched so many lives. He reached out to honeymooners, anniversary couples and a special man who was there from Make a Wish. The overall feeling of greatness was felt the entire... More

Chief is HILARIOUS! He and his crew are amazing, and they really put on a great show. I've been to a few luaus and believe me when I say this one is a must see! They even do a cute thing where they celebrate couples in love and they honored a young boy fighting cancer as well. it was really... More

Note that this is my only luau, so I have nothing to compare it to, but we had a lot of fun here and would recommend it to others! My fiance and I were a little late to planning and our hotel luau was fully booked for days, so we were happy to stumble upon this (it was through a... More

We wanted to do a Luau whilst in Hawaii and were recommended this particular one by the expedia guide in our hotel (Park Shore Waikiki). Don't think we could have chosen a better Luau!!! The only downside to this Luau was you can't get to do ALL of the activities due to time restraints :-( . Saying that, this Luau... More

Luau was fun food was plentiful & entertainment awesome. Would have given it a 5 except could not find out where to pick up photos that night. Travel agent called them the next day & they told her to have us email them. Ive tried 3 times but it keeps coming back as undeliverable. I just emailed SeaLife Park (the... More

The hubby took me on a surprise trip to Hawaii. We've been to two luaus and I can definitely say that Chief's Luau is spectacular! From start to finish, it was pure entertainment. The whole show was a good mix of humor, culture, and heart. The only thing that could make it the best in Oahu is an improvement on... More

My partner & I went to Chief's Luau and absolutely loved it. We booked the Aloha experience and the views were amazing. We booked a transfer and from the moment we got on the bus our tour guide named Cousin Junior made the atmosphere fun and enjoyable making jokes and pointing out scenes on the way. When we arrived there... More

Chief's Luau is just EXTRAORDINARY! There is no word to describe how AWESOME the live show was. He is so funny. He will have you laughing all night! Is a MUST see. On your way there if you happen to ride with Cousin K you're in good hands. #thegoodlookingbus
