Awful company
Jun 2020 • Family
DO NOT use this company!! We had a trip planned for the end of June. I had made our reservation ahead of time for the Luau because it stated cancellations were available as long as it was in advance. I have tried a million times to get someone on the phone, but it is never answered. I contacted them in May and June by email letting them know due to Covid and Hawaii’s 14 day quarantine we were pushing our trip to the end of July and I needed to cancel or change our June reservation. We ended up having to cancel all together because the 14day quarantine was extended through July. I have never received a response to either email and still can not get anyone on the phone. We are currently disputing the charge with the credit card company now. When we are able to take our trip we will NOT be going to this Luau!!

Charming Luau with ocean views and small Groups in Waikiki
Mar 2020
The Diamond head luau was within walking distance of our Hotel. They are situated on the grounds of the Waikiki Aquarium, which allows you to do a self guided walk through during the pre-show of the luau until 6pm. With a farm to table concept, their food was very fresh and tasty and some of my favorite from any luau that I've been too. After your entry photo, they have a table with homemade taro chips with their salsa and a pinch of Seaweed and fresh humus, that was very good.

This is a fun evening of Hawaiian and Polynesian experiences and activities is a great family event. Early on includes hula lessons, lei making, weaving headbands, ukulele lessons and temporary tattoos, which my wife experienced most of these.



They have a nice drink menu with local beers, wines and some unique drinks that I've never had at any luaus. Next is an all you can eat buffet with their Farm to Table buffet offering featuring local ingredients and recipes. Their Vegan curry was excellent and you don't have to be vegan to enjoy this unique dish for luaus. Also their Kalua pork was so ono (good) spiced just right and even though I'm mostly Vegetarian I do eat fresh fish and a little meat now and then. Their Dessert's were fancier and tastier than many luau's that we've attended.

We had only 156 people this night, which is small and charming compared to other Luau's we've attended. The show was fun, colorful, authentic and one of their chief's is very funny. I felt the true aloha Spirit here and they seemed to make sure you had an authentic Hawaiiana experience. I highly recommend the Diamond Head Luau.

Luau evening met expectations
Feb 2020 • Couples
Great night, lovely food!
The entertainment was amazing and a great sense of humour too.
My only down comment would be that I was expecting a 3 hours evening but we were told after 2 that it was finished. So a bit disappointed on that!

More intimate luau
Jan 2020
This luau is smaller than some- but that is not a bad thing. It is right on the ocean. Great view of the sunset. Food is farm to table. Not extravagant but prepared well. The show is what you would expect from a luau. Bonus is a free trip thru the aquarium.

Not as disappointing as some say, not as great as others, but pretty darn good
Feb 2020
OK, these people who use the word 'disappointing' must've had some sort of lofty expectations based on having gone to real traditional luaus, because I thought this was a pretty alright experience. I bought the 'basic' tickets, so I knew I'd be waiting until after the VIP's had gotten their food. There was PLENTY for EVERYONE and you were WELCOMED to go back for SECONDS and THIRDS if you wanted. The bartenders were generous and we thought they did a great job pouring drinks throughout the show. I didn't think the cake was going to be all that great, and it really didn't impress me as a 'traditional luau food,' but it was still pretty darn good, and yes, you could go back for seconds on the cake if you wanted. There was plenty of anything you'd like.

THE SHOW was excellent. OK, maybe it misses the mark set by the multi-million dollar Mormon extravaganza on the other side of the island, or it lacks the production qualities of the theme-park production that is a $60 each-way uber ride from downtown H-town, but it's authentic and performed with the most important element of all: ALOHA SPIRIT. The servers, the cast, the bartenders, the ticket-takers, everyone here was welcoming and nice.

Rundown on the food: I skipped the salad, because I could have that anywhere. I ate the tofu, chicken, beef and pork. All were delicious, well-seasoned and since you dole out your portions, I had as much as I wanted. I thought the Poi was delicious, the fresh fruit was REALLY fresh. The appetizers of taro chips, poi, and salsa were all very good, and definitely appetizing.

So here's the rub: If you want a beachside luau, with good food and a good show, that doesn't require a big trip to go somewhere, then this is the luau you're looking for. Is it expensive? You decide. You can spend your money and go to this one, or you can spend your money and go somewhere else. For my money (and this is AFTER a week on Pride of America and during a week at a timeshare in Honolulu), it was definitely a winner. While I wouldn't hesitate to try other luaus, I wouldn't steer anyone away from Diamond Head Luau.

Very Disappointing
The Aquarium was nice,very small. The drinks and food well it is very expensive but in my opinion very low and below average. Short ribs all bone no meat. Low budget entertainment, same few performers. I wish we hadn't wasted our money. It was boring to me, some in my party liked some of the entertainment but not exciting. Free drinks, awful. A tourist rip off I'm thinking.

Aloha, Mahalo for joining us and taking the time to leave us your feedback to consider while we continue to make improvements to the Lūʻau experience. We do take pride in being a slightly smaller production than some of the other activities on the island, so that our guests have the chance to truly take part in the activities and meet our performers without the large crowd and we are truly sorry to read you were disappointed with the experience. Thank you again for your feedback, Aloha
