I am very glad we chose this Luau even though we were wanting a fire show, this Luau does not have that. When we got to the gate we were given our seat assignments and a Mai Tai (non acholics available) and our weighter for the night came to greet us, gave us a lei and took us to our table. However, there are Conventional seating if you want closer to the stage, however they are not table and chair settings they are on the floor and you sit on a pillow. We were explained where the bar, toilets, food ect would be then we were on our own till the entertainment started. You walk around along the beach front and there are photographers taking Hawaiin style photos of you (at no cost unless you want to purchase afterwards for $5 ea.) They also have crafts where the children can participate then the unearthing of the pig. Then you are ready to eat, you go back to your seat and the appitizers arrive while you are waiitng for your table to be called. You go throught he buffet then your dessert is brought out. Then the show begins. We were sitting with some people that come back every year to the same Luau because its there favorite. We saw other Luaus from a distance and they just werent as nice as this one. If your going to be in the area I would highly recommend attending this Luau.

Upon sunset, the evening’s main entertainment begins. Our award-winning production tells the story of the Hawaiians. We are proud to present the Hula as it was meant to be performed with the respect and honor of our Ancestors. Beginning with the history of the Polynesian migration, then to the ancient Hawaiian Hula, followed by the evolution to a more contemporary style Hula.
~ Ote`a- Our program begins with the early migration of the Polynesians across the Pacific to the “new islands” of Hawaii .
~ Kahiko- The ancient Hula was a way of communicating with the Gods. It is accompanied by chanting, and traditional implements and is performed with respect for our ancestors.
~ Missionaries and the Merrie Monarch- The missionaries brought many changes. We present Hula depicting this era as well as celebrating King Kalakaua.
~`Auana- The modern Hula was influenced by immigrants and tourism. Hula dancers tell their stories through their graceful moves, subtle eyes and lovely hula hands.
