Your Guide to Oahu Luaus in Hawaii
A luau is the most iconic Hawaiian experience you can have during your visit to Oahu, and each Oahu luau, including Waikiki luaus, Honolulu luaus, and North Shore luaus, offer a wonderful experience that is perfect for all ages. Not only are Oahu luau family-friendly, they are all wheelchair accessible, and offer a number of different packages that will work for both budget conscious travelers and guests looking for a more opulent VIP experience. From grand beachfront luau to intimate backyard style luau celebrations, there is something for everyone at Oahu Hawaii luau!

What is a Hawaiian luau?
An authentic Hawaiian luau is a party or celebration that brings together family and friends, and you can experience this Hawaiian hospitality and island spirit with one of the many luau available on Oahu. All of the top Oahu luaus feature either an all-you-can-eat buffet or plated dinner service featuring a wide variety of traditional Hawaiian and Polynesian dishes, unique Pan-Pacific island cuisine, and variety of local favorites.

Depending on the Oahu luau, there are a variety of drinks to enjoy. Sip on a rum-based Mai Tai as you watch the sunset, have a coconut and pineapple filled Pina Colada, or try some wine or beer from a local winery and brewery. It is time for “Bottoms Up!” when you are at a Hawaii luau.

You will also enjoy exciting luau performances that showcase the rich culture of Hawaii, including traditional Polynesian dances like the Hawaiian hula, Tahitian ori, and the thrilling Samoan fire knife dance. Local performers who have been dancing for years will tell stories with their hands and their hips, as they gracefully perform to the sound of the ukulele and Polynesian drums.

What to Expect & Know Before You Go
  • Oahu luaus are some of the most popular activities on the island, and it is highly recommended that you make your reservations two to four weeks in advance.
  • Aloha shirts, Hawaiian-print dresses, and casual resort attire are the perfect things to wear to a luau. Flower hair clips and lauhala hats are wonderful accessories too.
  • Most luaus are held in areas with sand and grass, and for your safety high heel shoes are not recommended.
  • Many Oahu luau offer pre-show Hawaiian and Polynesian activities, so you will want to show up on time or a little early so you can participate. Activities often include hula lessons, temporary tattoo art, playing Hawaiian instruments and dance implements, and more.
  • Read over the different packages available at each luau since Oahu luau packages will have different prices, inclusions, and seating assignments.
  • If you are celebrating a special occasion, let us know ahead of time and we will inform the luau. Depending on the luau, you could receive a small gift, get a shout out from the MC, and more.
  • Guests with dietary restrictions should carefully go over menu details to make sure that there is food that you will be able to enjoy.
  • If you are planning on having alcoholic beverages at the luau, consider booking a luau that provides transportation so you won’t have to worry about driving back.

How to Get to an Oahu Luau
Most Oahu luaus offer transportation services from Waikiki hotels, and depending on where you are staying, there are luaus available within walking distance as well.

Some of the best Honolulu luau are located in the heart of Waikiki, and are a five to ten minute walk from most major Waikiki hotels.

Oahu luaus located in Ko Olina and Kapolei are easily accessible by guests staying in the Ko Olina resort area, and can be reached with a quick walk or a 10 minute car ride. Guests staying in Waikiki and Kahala will have an approximate one hour drive to the Ko Olina and Kapolei luaus.
