Experience up-close and personal activities with Chief's entire cast, 'imu ceremony and a sumptuous dinner buffet.

We were picked up at 3.55 and enjoyed a very funny bus ride with stunning views. Our "escort" K was brilliant. If you can ask to be on K's bus when you book, you should! It wasn't a long ride to the Sea Life Park. When we arrived you walk past the turtles. You are greeted with a lei of... More

After our trip with our two granddaughters to Oahu and Aulani Resort was over last week, they now tell everyone that Chief's Luau was the best thing they did or saw. Having seen a number of luaus over the years, on Oahu and other Hawaiian islands, I can honestly say this one is the best. I read reviews on TripAdvisor... More

It was my first time at a Luau so I wasn't sure what to expect. There were multiple activities before the show had started but only got to play two as we got busy with drinks and looking around the area (take a good camera because its at a very scenic location). The show was very entertaining but the Chief... More

We went for the experience. The location is very nice, however it was a bit too commercial for us. We had gone to a luau several years ago on Maui and that one was better. There were hundreds of people, so it took a long time just to seat everyone. There was a lot of audience participation that took about... More

When we booked this we did not realize it was at Sea Life Park we definitely would have spent our money else where. It was heartbreaking walking by sea turtles in enclosures. That being said the food was great, the host was funny, the fire show was exactly what we wanted to see. Had it been at any other location... More

My husband and I were picked up in Waikiki at 3:55. Sit on the right side of the bus, the views are amazing!! Upon arriving at Chiefs Luau we were greeted with a shell necklace, and a warm Aloha. The scenery at the Luau is beautiful. There are activities prior to the beginning of show, I only completed the weaving... More

Chief Sielu and his amazing team lived up to all of the 5 star reviews! Breath taking ocean front views all the way to the sheer cliffs of Makapu. Now this was a real Luau with Kalua pig pulled straight out of the ground and their world champion Fire Knife Dancers This rocked! My family felt this was the best... More

If this is the best rated Luau in Hawaii, I don't want to see what the others are like. The venue is attached to "Sea Life Park," an old, smelly aquarium, which kills the ambience before you even enter the Luau grounds. Our bus host was incredibly annoying, the "entertainment" was cheesy, and the activities were poorly organized and boring.... More

Luaus hadn't been high in my list in the past, but my husband was keen to check it out & I'm so glad we did. From the get go we knew we were in for a fun night. Our bus host had us laughing on the ride there plus we got to enjoy the stunning coastal drive. On arrival we... More
