We very much enjoyed the experience of this Luau. The dancing was just wonderful --- I've studied classical dance all of my life and thought that the hulas were exquisite. We were so relaxed and enjoying ourselves so much that we left that evening without taking a bag of souvenirs with us --- we accidentally left the bag under our table. The next day we returned to the facility and recovered our bag --- we certainly did not expect to ever see those items again! We went to the luau the last evening of our trip to Hawaii and it was a highlight of our experience.
The people were really friendly and were more than happy to recommend amazing snorkling spot as well as restaurants
The story part of the show was incredibly well done. Professional dancers with great costumes, coordinated movement, and a real sense of passion for what they were doing. The buffet style food was decent but not amazing - but you don’t come for the food. You also sit at large communal tables of about 10 people. There was a premium option with several courses and private tables if that is important to you. The fire dancers component was incredible and definitely the highlight.
Food was not great and the chairs were uncomfortable. It was a pleasant evening except for that. Loved the train ride around the plantation.
We have been to a few luaus and this was the most theatrical. They had a very showy stage production with lighting, etc. The view was excellent and actors perfect. The fire dancers (three women and a man) were extraordinary. The costumes were beautiful. The food was acceptable and the pork and desserts were very good. Alcoholic drinks were included, which was a welcome surprise. If you want a low-key, natural show this would not be for you, but if you enjoy a staged story explaining the travel of the islanders from Tahiti to Hawaii this would be the ticket. A well-produced show and very enjoyable. (Note: We bought the train-ride option and it was lots of fun but we thought feeding the wild pigs through a wire fence, mid-ride, to be uncomfortable and potentially unsafe for the animals. We don't feed wild animals under any circumstances in California. We stayed on the train while other patrons fed the pigs.)
The venue was fun, the food was high on the good scale and the show was one of the better ones I attended. As a bit of a kama'aina after spend some years in Hawai'i, I am no stranger to Luau's and cultural shows of the land. This was a very good show, well done with good dancers, singers and effects. Well worth the investment in vacation time and funds! Highly recommend.
The train ride was nice. It was fun to be able to get off and feed the animals. The food at the luau was not that exciting. The service was fabulous. The show was amazing. Overall, it was a good experience.
The show was great and the food was good. It would have been a lot better if they install some fans in the building to cool it down some.
My favorite part of this luau was, hands down, the fire dancers- such elegance and skill! It was a spectacular show with great music, energetic hula-dancing, and powerful story-telling. The food was Hawaiian fusion which included smashed taro, roasted pork, teriyaki chicken, salads, and dessert that included coconut pudding and upside down pineapple cake. Open bar was included with the ticket, which was a nice perk.The quality of the food, in my opinion, was good but paled in comparison to the show.
