Best Oahu Luaus – Your Essential Guide

Best Oahu Luaus

One thing all visitors must experience on their Hawaii Vacation is a Hawaii Luau. With so many choices it can get confusing so I have broken it down with information about the Best Oahu Luaus!

Germaine’s Luau

Germaine’s Luau is one of THE most popular Oahu Luaus. If you read the Hawaii Discount Facebook page you will know that people are often commenting on how they think it is one of the best Oahu luaus. One thing I love about Germaine’s Luau is that everyone is part of the celebration and instantly part of the Germaine’s Ohana (family). Germaine’s luau is held on a private beach about an hour from Waikiki. Germaine’s luau offers free transportation and the party begins on the bus with the hilarious cousins. This Hawaii Luau is an informal, backyard local-style event with a flexible format and open seating.

The traditional Hawaii Luau feast includes some of the best Kalua pig you will find on the island. The show has amazing choreography, gorgeous costumes and audience participation which has all of the guests laughing and having fun.  Germaine’s Luau is what a Hawaii Luau is all about!

When: Daily – closed on Mondays during part of the year

Chief’s Luau at Sea Life Park

Chief’s Luau at Sea Life Park has become one of the most popular Oahu Luaus. This Oahu Luau is located at beautiful Makapu’u Meadows at Sea Life Park just 25 minutes from Waikiki.

The star of this Oahu Luau is World Champion Fire Knife Dancer and Polynesian comedian Chief Sielu. Chief Sielu is known as the best and funniest Polynesian entertainer in the South Pacific.

Chief’s Luau has it all – it is an upscale Hawaii luau at a beautiful location yet convenient to Waikiki.  Enjoy 4 hours of fun Hawaii activities, a delicious dinner and a memorable Polynesian extravaganza with a panoramic sweeping ocean backdrop.

Chief’s Luau is located next to Sea Life Park and luau guests are invited to walk through Sea Life Park before the luau activities begin.

When: Wednesdays and Sundays

Paradise Cove Luau

Located in Ko Olina, Paradise Cove Luau is set on 12 gorgeous oceanfront acres with beautiful sunset views. Enjoy Hawaii Activities, the Royal Court Procession, the Imu Ceremony, Cocktails, a delicious dinner and one of Hawaii’s best luau shows.

Polynesian Cultural Center

At the Polynesian Cultural Center you will be immersed in Polynesian culture. With 7 different packages to choose from you will find one that best meets your needs. Hawaii Discount even added a new package last week that includes Polynesian Cultural Center General Admission and Transportation at one low price!

If you choose the Polynesian Cultural Center be prepared to make a day of it. Located in Laie it is about a 75 minute drive from Waikiki. The gates open at 11:45 am. I recommend that guests arrive at 11:45 to have enough time to explore the 42 acres of the Polynesian Cultural Center and experience the 7 Villages: Tonga, Tahiti, Marquesas, Samoa, Aotearoa, Fiji and Hawaii. The Villages of Polynesia offer shows and fun Hawaii activities for all ages. Participate in tree climbing, canoe racing, spear throwing, Samoan cooking, fire making, canoe tours and more! Be sure to stick around for the world-famous evening show, Ha-Breath of Life.  There are a variety of dining options at the Polynesian Cultural Center including the Alii Luau Package.

    We did the Paradise Cove. It was a beautiful setting and very well done show.
    We inquired prior to choosing and were told the Germaine’s was a little ‘trashier’, intended, or better suited to younger crowds, and the PCC was more of a day trip than we were looking for.
