“Great show!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

We wanted the family to experience a luau for their first trip to Hawaii so I check out a lot of the reviews. I checked out both paradise cove and Fia Fia because they are both close to where we stayed. We picked the Fia Fia show because it was a more intimate atmosphere (looked like about half the number of guests as paradise cove). We were not disappointed. They gave everyone shell necklaces as we went in, and I also bought a lei for my wife. It is held right by the beach and we enjoyed a great sunset as things were getting started. I let them know with our reservation that my wife needs a gluten-free diet and they made up a special gluten-free plate of food for her that they delivered to the table. They even got her some ice cream for desert when I pointed out that the buffet deserts were all cakes. The show itself was great! It was great to see the traditional dancing, and the fire dancers were incredible! It is a bit pricey, but worth the cost. The chief was great. A few of the jokes had some innuendo to them, but nothing overt enough to concern families attending the show together.

“Choose this one!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

After reading many reviews of local Luaus and asking around, we decided to do the Fia Fia. Located on the Marriott property in Ko Olina, it was just a short walk from our resort. The show was magnificent and better than with expected with a touch of comedy thrown in. The food was good but not spectacular. This Luau is more intimate than others with about 300 guests versus 1200. The audience was asked to participate in the show. We watched the sunset on the beach and enjoyed the fact that it was outside.

“Fun staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

The pre activities were great for little kids- the chief is a great mc, very personable and friendly- the dancers were terrific. Not a bad show if you want to avoid the drive to the Polynesian cultural center.

“Same group as Chief's Luau”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

We attended the Chief's Luau on Monday night in the Eastside. While staying at the Marriott Vacation Club on Tuesday we saw that they had the show there too - called Fia Fai Instead of Chief. Same group but different location. The performers recognized us from the show the previous night. Highly recommend it! The price is slightly higher for this show.

The "Chief" is a great entertainer. Check him out on Monday PM and your child just might get picked to be part of the show Tuesday.
