"GREAT TIME!"
October, 2016
Getting to tour the aquarium and the hands on activities were a plus. Got to make a headpiece so much fun. Sunset was breathtaking. We had VIP package so got to set closer to front. Show is excellent. 10 year old fire dancer was amazing. The food and drinks were good. This is the only luau I have been to so have nothing to compare it to . I really enjoyed it and recommend it.

I am so glad we booked this luau! The host was upbeat and the staff was welcoming. The food was fresh and tasty. There were lots of activities and things to do before the festivities began. The show itself was amazing! So fun and entertaining, while still learning about Hawaiian culture! It even included admission to the aquarium! I absolutely reccommend this to anyone who wants a night filled with fun, food, sunset views, sea creatures, and entertainment!

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Although the charismatic staff was friendly and the performance was entertaining, the following 32+ miserable hours we spent trading off in our hotel bathroom outweighed any positive experience we had and put a huge damper on our vacation. Between the horrible vomiting and persistent diarrhea we were left drained—quite literally—for the remainder of our trip.

We enjoyed our visit to Diamond Head Luau - there was a beautiful view of the sunset on the beach, plenty of activities (ukelele lessons, lei making, temporary tattoos), and the cultural show was spectacular! We really enjoyed the fire dancing and the energy all the performers brought. Food was also delicious! It was a nice intimate setting, and we enjoyed having a good view of the cultural show

Was walking distance to all the hotels on Waikiki and exactly what I wanted after going to all the massive commercialized luau's. I wanted something smaller with more genuine interaction and that's exactly what my mom and I got. Would come back again for sure!
