This was our first time at a luau. They picked us up and returned us to our resort at no charge. Really happy they did that as no one had to drive. Food was excellent and the show was wonderful. It showed the history of the people how Hawaii was populated. It was a great energetic show. Would go again.... More

This is the most affordable luau that I could find on the island. We worried that the atmosphere and quality would be less than it could be because of the affordable price, but we were all pleasantly surprised. We had a quick drive through the gorgeous grounds to start the evening (it felt a but rushed but you are free... More

We've been to several luaus over the years. This luau had the biggest grounds and biggest overall experience. Lots of food and lots off drinks. Tram takes you around the grounds. Nothing about this luau was the greatest, but the overall experience was pretty good. ps. They have a bus that will pick you up at your resort.

This Luau was so much fun. They picked us up at the hotel. We were taken on a guided tour around the grounds. It was just beautiful. The food was plentiful and delicious, with free Mai Tais and hula lesson. Our hosts were warm and friendly, and the show was great. This was the cheapest of the Luaus on offer,... More
