“Best Luau that i ever went to”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

The location was sparkling clean , the dancers' costumes were very high end, and the Torch fire lead dancer was the best!!
The food was of higher quality than any other luau i had gone to
I had asked a guest at the hotel if they liked it before i purchased and he had been to 6 other luaus and said it was good so i purchased and went. Very, very professional luau. Highly recommend it!!

“Beautiful but average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

This was a very beautiful luau with fantastic performances. It's a fantastic experience for those who haven't been before but for those who have, it is definitely one of the more average luau's.

The food was ok. I think that's what lost points for me but the Luau and the entertainers were fantastic.

“Great Performance, Total Experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

Before the hula performance begins, the musicians serenade the audience with traditional Hawaiian music. They are excellent musicians and loved the music. The hula performances span a number of polynesian traditions, from intense, warlike themes to sunny aloha expressions that are unique to the islands. Their performances have amazing energy and synchronization that can only come from much careful preparation. It all takes place at a beautiful setting. We enjoyed watching the sunset, silhouetted against the beach side palms.

The show's host was very informative and interesting in sharing background. There was a heart-warming blessing, spoken and then sung in Hawaiian that was very touching, and reminded us the sacred element of the traditions we were about to take part in. Enjoyed watching kane (men) unearth the kalua pig. The food and free bar were great. An excellent total experience and great value in our estimation.

“Absolutely Loved it..Highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

Aunt Tutu is so entertaining..Entertainment all the way through.
From taking a photo when you enter to the Fire dance at the end. Yes it is expensive..and we sat in the Premier seating...but worth every penny.
The dancers are all amazing. So Beautiful and graceful.
Learnt how to do the Hula with Aunt Tutu..was so much fun.

“Great event with children, but a bit hard on the wallet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

We went with two children, 1 & 3 years old, and had a great time. Very entertaining and fun for everyone. Food was good as were the cocktails.

Its every bit what you expect from an overpriced hawaiian event, but we still felt it was worth it. Event ran for about 3 hours. Arrive early to get a good table as it was first come first served. Also, book online to save $10 per person. Do not book through agency or you might get the "car lot" treatment.
