FREE "Cove" Card (until 2019/12/31)

Enjoy a free "Cove" card that can be used to purchase drinks at the bar, photographs (excluding bird vendor), and merchandise from Paradise Cove Marketplace!

Must be used on the activity day. No refund or credit for any unused value. Child/Youth Cove Cards may not be used towards adult drinks at the bar.

Experience Hawaiian culture through a delicious island feast, cultural activities and traditional entertainment at one of Oahu's most popular luaus! Unlike other luaus in Waikiki crowded on hotel grounds, Paradise Cove in Ko Olina is located upon 12 oceanfront acres of private estate, an unforgettable venue to experience the longstanding tradition of a Hawaiian luau. Around sunset, watch the unearthing of the traditional underground roasted pig at the Imu Amphitheater. After a delicious buffet dinner, enjoy mesmerizing dancing and live music that brings the story of Hawaii to life, culminating with a heart-pounding Samoan fire knife dance! The perfect family-friendly activity for guests at Ko Olina, but also includes transportation from Waikiki. Paradise Cove luau is Oahu at its best!
Pro Tip: Paradise Cove is more than just a luau, it includes a pre-show crafts, Hawaiian net fishing on the shore and more. This creates a fun, engaging atmosphere for guests of all ages.

Top Rated: Paradise Cove Luau reviews tell the full story: this is often considered the best luau in Honolulu.
