This was an amazing day! What a brilliant way to learn about the different cultures of the south pacific. Our guide Chapo - hope I got that right was very knowledgable and friendly and each of the village presentations was both educational and amusing. The food at the Luau wasn't brilliant for a vegetarian but, as I'd already filled up on ice cream and pineapple smoothy, that wasn't a problem. The 'Ha: Breath of Life' show was amazing and really rounded off the day on a high. Highly recommend this tour.
This is the first time our family visited PCC for a full day/evening. The Center exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed and had time to see most of the villages, the Ali'i Luau buffet and Ha Breath of Life spectacular. We chose that particular luau as we were more interested in Hawaii cuisine rather than the more common prime rib and seafood. We were informed correctly by Knox, our coach bus tour guide, not to expect to see everything in the village in one day, but we did cover most of the Center.
We started by walking only a block from our condo at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, to the Ilikai where we were picked up by a full-sized, comfortably air-conditioned coach bus at about 10 am. The drive up along the east coast o the northern area of Oahu was breathtaking.
We arrived at PCC at around 11:30.
We had a delicious lunch at Pounders Restaurant at the marketplace, as recommended and arranged by Knox. We were too full to try desserts, but Aunty Emily's Bakery within the restaurant had a magnificent display of desserts, including island favourites. The Marketplace had many places to shop, but we left it to the afternoon before attending the last feature in the evening, the spectacular Ha Breath of Life show. PCC opened at noon, so we had time for lunch. Some wonderful professional photos taken at the entrance and at the Ali'i Luau.
The villages representing Polynesian islands of the Pacific, were well presented. We particularly enjoyed the cruise in the large canoe admiring the great size of the Josepa canoe built according to ancient plans and used as a cultural teaching tool it is sailing classroom to islands for students of BYU cultural dances and demonstrations at villages especially those of Fiji and Aotearoa NZ where we enjoyed Kap, the great, seasoned Samoan storyteller and fire performer. Most of the performers are students of BYU, who go to classes in the morning. The Hawaiian Journey film in the theatre was beautiful and a nice short break from the heat outside. We enjoyed the luau buffet and entertaiinment during dinner. We were not interested in the tour of BYU upon leaving the villages. We did appreciate this option was great for those who were interested. Instead, we spent time shopping at the marketplace as we waited for the final performance. The Ha Breath of Life spectacular was excellent as a combination of Polynesian cultures into a family story of the circle of life.
My husband and I have experienced a great luau at Paradise Cove 27 years ago, and enjoyed the beachside setting. I believe this is still offered, but this time we decided to try PCC with our adult children for a more full cultural experience. We were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the day at PCC as well.
A must do event in Oahu. Had the ambassador ticket so got picked up close to our hotel in the morning. We had a small group tour with a fantastic guide, Parley, who was very chatty and informative. The different islands were terrific and great fun. Buffet lunch and dinner. Luau during dinner and then the Ha Breath show which was amazing.
