What is a luau?

Don’t miss out on this experience of true Hawaiian hospitality and island spirit! A Hawaiian luau is a nighttime dinner show that includes an all-you-can-eat buffet dinner featuring traditional Hawaiian food and local favorites. At a luau, you can enjoy exciting performances showcasing the rich culture of Hawaii, including traditional Polynesian dances such as hula and the thrilling Samoan fire knife dance while sipping on tropical cocktails. It's a top attraction for everyone visiting Hawaii and is an absolute must-do experience!

Local Expert Tips

  • Oahu luaus fill up quickly. We recommend making your reservation 2-4 weeks in advance.
  • We recommend wearing casual resort attire. Women generally dress in long gowns with shawls to keep them warm. We don't recommend wearing heels since luaus are frequently held on beaches or grassy grounds. Aloha shirts paired with shorts are typically worn by men. Sunglasses are also suggested since the luau usually begins shortly before sunset.
  • There is no need for tips. Gratuity is included in the price unless otherwise stated.
