This is the best luau ('Aha 'Aina) in all of Hawaii. Waikiki beach, Diamond Head and Hawaiian sunset are the backdrops. The food is delicious farm/fish to table. The seating is intimate. The stories, history, pace of show and performers is amazing. Love it and...More

I have been to probably 30 or so luau shows. I think this is one of the best. It is pricey. First, it is held on the back lawn, fronting the beach, of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, a Waikiki landmark. Second, it's beautiful. Third, the...More

My family and I have now been to 5 luaus in Maui, Hawaii, and Honolulu. This is by far the nicest of the events. It's a smaller event with around 200 people versus some others of 500 people. This was a much nicer dinner experience,...More

Though we thought it was a little pricey $600 family 2A 2C. It certainly was a great show. An excellent host, beautiful dancers and singers and quality food. Set on a stunning backdrop of Waikiki beach.

Luau at the Royal Hawaiian. Both a great show and a history lesson. The food is great. There is not a bad seat in the show---There is premium seating but I do not think that it is worth it.

When we booked our tickets for this luau in late January, everything we read online said it was open bar. We figured the high price tag was worth it if we could enjoy the night with plenty of tropical drinks. When we arrived at the...More

I've been to several luau's and feel that this luau offers the best experience for guests. The view of diamond head in the background is fantastic, the luau food is top notch, and the entertainment is outstanding. If it's within your budget, splurge on this...More

They don't have deals or discounts. We booked directly through their website (link through Royal Hawaiian). You should book early as possible though, seating is very limited and performances are only on Mondays.
