Must see in your Hawaiian holiday. We had a fantastic time. Maybe take something warm to wear this time of year as it was a little cold. Drinks were very weak hardly any alcohol in them even the ones you pay for. Stage show was...More

I was the typical skeptical guy about going to a luau on our honeymoon trip here. But I was proven so wrong. My wife purchased the royal experience and admittedly I thought it would be a waste of money and again....I was wrong. I enjoyed...More

As the title suggests, we thoroughly enjoyed the luau entertainment. The chief is really funny and had me laughing much of the time. He also adds in some touching moments. The supporting dancers/warriors are all fantastic. The fire show was mesmerizing. The food though, not...More

We have been to other luaus on the island and this one is the best. The Chief welcomes all like family. The food is good, the setting is beautiful, and the entertainment is excellent. Great for everyone!

We had a great time! It was our honeymoon and the crowd was smaller because it had rained earlier that day so we didn't have any issues with the crowd / waiting times. The view is beautiful! We had originally booked seats in the Aloha...More
