Nothing Corny About This Luau

Reviewed by: Ms. Rosie, 2012/05/18

First off... I will RECOMMEND this luau over any other luau on Oahu. This didn’t even feel like an activity or a tour I paid for, it felt like I was invited to a festive Hawaiian family gathering.

I have been to many "traditional" luaus, and usually leave during the show because it gets so boring, everyone does the same routine..over and over again. Not at this luau. I cannot explain how good of a time we had.

The show was great and the Chief grabbed your attention the minute you walked in, he was so funny! Chief Sielu had my friend and I laughing so hard we had to put our drinks and camera down because we wanted to enjoy every minute of it.

One of the main highlights was the fire knife dancing, it started off with 1 dancer, then 2, 3, 4, just kept on going!! I think at one time the stage nearly caught on fire but they just kept on flipping their fire knives, throwing it in the was soooo exciting!!!

This luau felt like a family gathering, everyone shared

Amazing Luau and Closest to Waikiki

Reviewed by: Myk Powell, 2012/05/16

I chose to go to the Chief’s Luau at Sea Life Park because it was close to Waikiki but not IN Waikiki. And I had been to Sea Life Park and the ocean views there are absolutely gorgeous. The main reason I chose this one was I had heard so much about Chief Sielu. Everyone says he’s the best in the South Pacific and “everyone” were correct. What a luau!

In my humble opinion, the Chief’s Luau is the best. The Chief Sielu is even better than his reputation. He and his huge cast of male and female dancers first entertained us with crafts, how to weave, make fire, and dance hula. Then the Chief narrated the imu ceremony where they pulled the pig from the underground imu oven. Informative and funny. Dinner was great. Then came the show. Beyond entertaining, exceptionally funny, and more fire knife dancers than I expected. There were about 7 or 8 of them doing really wild stuff.

One of the best parts of this luau was its proximity to where I was staying in Waikiki. It took less than 30 m
