We enjoyed this luau following our first full day's visit in Waikiki. We'd been here about 25 years ago as we were preparing to leave the navy and remembered our visit fondly. Fortunate to say, it's still as good and maybe even better. Prior to...More

Thanks to military in the family we could join this luau. Well organised, nice workshops, enough food with good taste and fantastic show. It was a pity that dinner was in such a hurry. My daughter was still enjoying her food and suddenly her plate...More

If you are staying at the Hale Koa don't go to another luau, this one is amazing. The show is great, the food is amazing. They know their audience and do a few minutes to honor the military in the audience. Take a family photo...More

Before the show we experienced the cultural exhibitions and while crowded we did not feel oppressed. The exhibition of uncovering the pig was entertaining and enjoyable, with the MC providing some well placed humor. The Luau itself is a very professional production. We were left...More

I stayed at this hotel in 1980 and the luau was intimate and very traditional. It was great fun. Now it is huge and not traditional. Everything is rushed, food is not served family style, you can't see the stage from many seats, you can't...More

There is great covered seating for the dinner and show. However the pre-Luau get together does not have cover. I suggest you ask what the procedure is if there is rain!

There are several ways to qualify, include federal employee status. I would certainly call and talk to them. See if someone can sponsor you. It will be well worth the work to make it happen!
