The luau was the crown jewel of our Christmas in Hawaii. The experience, hospitality, food, and entertainment were all perfect. Even though we were a large group, we were treated very well. The food was delicious; every part of it was so tasteful. The entertainment was top notch. It is apparent the dancers rehearse in order to give us the best experience possible. Lastly, the venue was breathtaking. The views were 360 degrees of amazing beauty.

This was our first luau experience and it did not disappoint. The location on the lawn with the ocean and the sunset was spectacular. The food was great ... so glad that you get to try everything on the menu! The performers were wonderful too. Our 17-yr-old son said that he liked it and he is glad that we went. Huge win! Glad we chose this for our first luau!

It was an excellent experience and different from the any other luau that I had been too. The food was very good and selection allowed choices for everyone. We went when there was the local craft market which was enjoyable, small but nice to have there. The actual performance was fantastic

Spectacular show with the setting sun in the background, yummy free cocktails and a great buffet with Hawaiin cuisine staples. We loved the representation of the various island cultures and the Samoan fire display is a can’t miss.

It was a lovely evening! Food was good, and the entertainment was awesome.
