The Las Vegas of luaus, set on gorgeous tropical grounds, filled with peacocks, Japanese gardens, a false Easter Island head, a lake, and plenty of flora. The hosts urge you to wander through the property before gathering in the shadows of Sleeping Giant Mountain to learn the traditional imu ceremony. Guests are then invited into the tent to be entertained by a family of musicians. Go early to get a seat if you are a group of 4-5 and want to dine together.
Since there are so many people crammed in the tent, it might take a while to get to line up for dinner. Yet when you do, the food is decent and plentiful. Make sure to try the rice pudding, which they cook in the hearth with the pig.
The show then takes place in a pavilion, which you are directed to after dinner. Unfortunately, the performance is not the best for young kids. While most luau shows are interactive, this one is quite long. They do have fireworks and the big lava with fire. This is a good option for people staying in the North or East shores as they offer complimentary shuttle service to people staying in and around Wailua.
If you’re on a budget, you can also book “show only” tickets online.
