A dynamic, talented and deeply spirited group of young and elder, for a sampler of awe, thrill, reverence and joy and amusement all in one... Sprinkled with very knowledgeable stories of history of Hawaii and its culture, people, meaning of various dances and tidbits of remarks to altogether help us have proper context for interpreting and appreciating what we were enjoying. Feel entertained but educated and have meaningful appreciation for amazing Hawaii. My wedding party got customized credits by Wallis lead singer whose welcoming 'aloha' warmed everyone especially my sister the bride who didn't expect to be specifically recognized so that was super nice. She got on stage for a short 'try mini hula lesson' session on stage. It's really got

We got to see all different kinds of hula and got to know some of the history of hawaii. We did not have the meal as it was at the hotel restaurant so not an authentic luau

We thought this show was culturally genuine and professionally done. They made it fun, encouraged photographs and outside food & drink. Literally, no restrictions.
It was a tiny bit cheesy, but hey, we are tourists after all.
The musicians were accomplished and the dancers were athletic, artistic, and had amazing stamina.
It was all good, but the children dancers and the fire dancers were especially fun. We were glad we went to this show.

The Punua Family has done this show for close to 50 years! We had friends stay with us at the Marriott Lihue and this show is available just one night. We skipped the plated dinner and just bought a ticket to the entertainment which is presented in the incredibly beautiful inner courtyard gardens. This how includes traditional hula and modern dances performed by great young dancers who impressed us all with their professionalism and skill. From hawaiian hula to polynesian fire dances this show has it all.

We are so impressed that this family has kept a great tradition alive and is bringing young dancers along in a very professional manner. No one should miss this show!
