“Paying extra for VIP was money well spent! VIP tickets entered the Luau first, so we had a little extra time to enjoy the activities, which were really fun for the whole family. Our waiter, Brent, was friendly and helpful. It was great having table service, and we had already received our food and were eating when they started calling tables for the buffet. I loved the show! The dancers were very good, and I enjoyed the personality during the show. It was funny in parts without crossing out of being family friendly. The fire dancers were amazing and something I looked for when looking into a Luau. They did not disappoint! Overall, it was a fun and memorable night for my family.”
“I loved that the luau was an intimate experience. As part of the program, there was flower lei bracelet making, headband leaf weaving and demonstrations of hula implements that provided for kids or anyone to get one on one guidance/instruction. The performance/show was amazing – very entertaining and a lot of fun. The dancers were beautiful and I loved seeing the varied styles. There was a lot of interaction with the audience and as mentioned since it was on a more intimate level it was fantastic… a great opportunity to capture (video tape) loved ones learning the hula, etc. I came for the show and it did not disappoint! There was no pig roasting (it made no difference to me) but the food was great and it included the traditional pork.”
“The Diamond Head Luau was a beautiful and entertaining evening. Located near the Aquarium offered double the sights. We had a wonderful time! The music, dancers, food and location were top of the line! The hospitality of the island was second to none. Thanks.”
“Food was varied and tasty. Dancers were excellent. We enjoyed the going around to the different stations too plait/braid palm frawns, make lei bracelets, etc. We also enjoyed the aquarium. What beautiful setting, right on the ocean. A huge bonus was its proximity to Waikiki. We ended up walking from our hotel (the Shoreline which we highly recommend). It was a beautiful stroll along the water front and much better than an hour ride on a bus through heavy traffic to reach the luaus on the other side of the island. While we had planned to take a cab back to our hotel, we decided to walk as it was a lovely evening and we felt perfectly safe. It was well lit and many people were out and about and the shops and restaurants across from the water from were still open.”
