What You Can Expect
Following evening pickup at your Waikiki hotel (if option selected), board a comfortable coach for short ride to the Paradise Cove Luau.
Step down from the coach and the friendly staff will greet you with a traditional Hawaiian lei and a tasty Mai Tai cocktail. Take in the views of downtown Honolulu, Pearl Harbor, Waikiki and Diamond Head as you find your table. Take some time to peruse the Hawaiian Village to see traditional arts, crafts and games.
After the delightful Shower of Flowers, participate in the Hukilau on the beach and learn the net fishing techniques of old Hawaii. Following the pageantry of the Royal Court Procession and imu (earth oven) ceremony, your evening continues with a sumptuous feast.
Feast on traditional Hawaiian dishes, typically roasted in an underground oven or imu. There are 3 dinner packages to choose from, perfect for all tastes and budgets. Please see Itinerary section below for a sample menu and full list of activities. After dinner, enjoy live music, songs and dancing from across Polynesia as you witness the Paradise Cove Extravaganza.
After the 3-hour evening of entertainment and dining, enjoy transportation back to your Waikiki hotel for drop-off (if option selected).
Arts and Crafts:
The arts and crafts of old Hawaii are as beautiful as they are intricate and complex. During your visit to Paradise Cove, be sure to visit the Hawaiian Village and take part in arts and crafts demonstrations. Learn how to make a traditional Hawaiian lei or leave with a slightly more permanent memory, temporary Polynesian tattoos.
In ancient Hawaii, games were created as a form of entertainment, but also to develop the skills of the warriors. At Paradise Cove you can take part in some of the more popular traditional Hawaiian games. To test your skills try 'O'o ihe (Spear throwing), 'Ulu maika (Rolling stone disks) and Moa pahe'e (Dart sliding).
Shower of Flowers:
Imagine standing on a beautiful white sand beach gently showered by fragrant island flowers. Witness skilled tree-climbers ascend the highest of palm trees and spread the aloha of the islands with a floral cascade, making this dream-like scene into an experience you will remember forever.
Hukilau on the Beach:
Paradise Cove keeps the traditions of old Hawaii alive with a nightly Hukilau on the beach. You are invited to participate in the ceremonial pulling of the fish nets to the rhythms of the conch shell and Hawaiian chant
At Hawaii's only Imu Amphitheater, take a seat to view the elaborate process of traditional cooking in the Hawaiian underground oven. In a ceremony following the practices and rituals of ancient times, you will see exactly how your delicious Hawaiian meal is prepared.
Paradise Cove Extravaganza:
With the most spectacular Hawaiian sunset as a backdrop, the Paradise Cove Main Stage explodes with the beauty and excitement of the traditional songs and dances of Hawaii and Polynesia. Award-winning dancers will entertain and amaze you with a performance that is as unforgettable as the perfect setting of Paradise Cove itself.
beautiful experience, the true Hawaii luau. Great food and service.
This luau was amazing. Every person we encountered was so polite and accommodating, we felt like we were hanging out with friends!
We utilized the bus ride out there and our host, Cousin Rich was AWESOME! Bus 3 for life!
If you want to enjoy a great party at the beach on beautiful grounds, this is the place for you. It's a bit pricey but it's worth every penny.
Great time, the tour guide was incredibly funny. Im so bad with names I dont recall what his name is.
The food was delicious .
Really wonderful, more than I expected.
Excellent evening out.
I was made to feel so special as it was my birthday - a wonderful experience....

The food was excellent. The show was not what I expected, but was very enjoyable. It was more like a Don Ho Hawaiian special, than other luaus we had attended. What made this one of the best tours we have been on was the people on our bus. Our tour guide was Rich, cousin Mo and driver of bus 1 Captain Sexy. We did not want the ride to end.
