We went in Nov 2015. If you don't want to support the Mormons at the Polynesian Cultural Center go to this Luau at Sea Life Park! So much fun and the food and entertainment was great! My teenage son and daughter even had a blast! It is located on top of a mountain and is well worth the money!

This was our first luau and we thought we'd treat ourselves to the 'Royal' experience for the price of over $300 for two. Please read until the end since the performance of the dancers might just make this worth your while and I would give their performance 5 stars if I could! We arrived a bit late as we got... More

We rearranged travel after we got off cruise ship after a Pacific cruise. Our son is from Seattle and they were in Honolulu to get on the ship for its next journey. However, he proposed to his girlfriend the night before. So we decided to celebrate by going to Chief's Luau. Little did we know how spectacular this evening would... More

Chief shares a wonderful history of Polynesian tribes but he also focuses on the value of family, friends, love and peace. The quality experience began and ended with a wonderful tour guide on the bus. The food was lovely and plentiful. I hope many many people for many many years to come have the opportunity to experience Chief's warmness and... More

Chief's is simply the best luau in the whole of Hawaii. The location has a really awesome view, the show is spectacular and the food is great. We went two years ago and the food has greatly improved. Typically, luau food is just not good, but not at Chief's. Chief is terrific as the emcee, he is so funny and... More

The Chief's Luau was well worth the investment. It was entertaining, hilarious, and very interactive. It came highly recommended by my sister and brother-in-law who have two kids (ages 8 and 14). The Chief made it a memorable evening in a beautiful setting with panoramic ocean and mountain views. We purchased the Paradise Package, including roundtrip transportation. Our bus guide,... More

We were staying in Honolulu in a group of ten following an 18 day pacific cruise. On our last night we attended Chief''s Luau on the recommendation of our concierge. The 30 minute bus ride was beautiful with commentary from our hostess. She described what we would find on our arrival to the luau and where to go. The backdrop... More
