Description

from Paradise Cove Luau
Serving Hawaii's malihini (guests) and kama'aina (locals) for more than 20 years, Paradise Cove is one of the largest and most respected luau shows in Hawaii. Located at the beautiful Ko Olina Resort on the leeward coast of O'ahu, Paradise Cove features brilliant sunset views from our 12-oceanfront acres.

A tropical Mai Tai greeting and live Hawaiian music set the festive mood of the evening. Casually stroll through the Hawaiian Village and learn the Arts & Crafts of the islands or test your skills at our Hawaiian Games.

After the delightful Shower of Flowers, participate in the Hukilau on the Beach and learn the net fishing techniques of old Hawai'i. Witness the pageantry of the Royal Court Procession and the time-honored techniques of underground oven cooking at the Imu Ceremony.

The evening continues with a feast in the company of friends, old and new. Bring your appetite to fully enjoy Paradise Cove's extensive menu which tastefully blends the best of traditional Hawaiian dishes, local favorites and continental cuisine.

With the most spectacular Hawaiian sunset as a backdrop, our award-winning performers will entertain and amaze you with an unforgettable display of songs and dances of Hawai'i and Polynesia at the incomparable Paradise Cove Extravaganza.

"Awesome experience"
Reviewed June, 2016 NEW
This luau was amazing! We purchased the most expensive tickets and did not regret it-was worth every penny.
Tip: Remember your camera and get there on time to allow time to enjoy all the various activities offered before the luau itself.

"Perfect Luau on Oahu!"
Reviewed June, 2016
We had so much fun at this luau! The crew is very knowledgeable and fun. I couldn't believe hiw great the entertainment was a day how amazing the food was! They have a bar that also makes yummy drinks if you're feeling the island vibes! ;)

Get there early as there is lots to do and see before the actual show starts!

The property is absolutely gorgeous and the sunset you get to see from it is incomparable. I would definitely recommend this for its value and I can't wait to do it again next time we are there!
Tip: It's great for everything from honeymoons to full family reunions.

"Worst Luau experience ever"
Reviewed December, 2015
We have gone to many Luau's in Hawaii and this was a huge disappointment. The entertainment was great, but how it's operated was really poor. You get a card when you check in and they don't explain how it works - so you walk in and are asked to pay for sodas and other things. We went to get our money our and the bartender told us that this card has money that we can use for drinks (lucky for us we did not throw them out)? No one told us anything about how it worked or how to use it? Then we got our seats - in the back where you can't see anything! The stage is not elevated enough so if you are on the sides toward the back you can't see a thing. We also heard a loud beeping throughout the show - when I asked the servers what it was they said it's the ice machine and it does that all the time - HUH??? Don't go here - there are lots of other amazing luau experiences...

"You'll become their 'Ohana' (family) by the end of the night!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 22, 2016 NEW

Shoutout to Cousin Flo and Cousin Mo, the best group guides on the Paradise Cove team. The Hawaiian tradition is that everyone is your 'cousin' or if your an elder you're 'Aunty' or 'Uncle' and by the end of the night you'll be ohana (family). Great night out for family and couples with lots of cultural activities and good food and a great show of all of the different types of Polynesian dance. If you can afford it get the deluxe package, it includes front row tables, dinner and drink service to your table, photos, jump the lines and more. This was our 3rd time at this luau we love it. Hubby and I are both on canes and if you need it, ask and they'll get the golf cart to move you around. Cousin Mo on our bus trip back to Waikiki gave us an impromptu lip sinc covert that was hilarious. We were 'bus' dancing to Macarena and Gangam style and laughing our heads off (could have been the Mai Tais?) Good fun!

Splurge for the deluxe package! It's so worth it. We had a table right in the front and were able to touch the stage. That close! You also get table service , (so no standing in line for a buffet or drinks, they bring those to you also!) a picture in and book frame is included for each person($30 each if bought separately) and you also get a $24 cove card (like a visa to use at the luau) that you can use on drinks or in the gift shop! It was one of the most gorgeous spots on the island. Beautiful views and the sunset was amazing. There is crafts and events you can do also like spear throwing or a boat ride around the cove. Swimming, and lei making. Be prepared to be there about 4-5 hours. The staff are amazing and friendly and the show was fantastic!! Best luau in Oahu from everyone of the locals I talked to!

I would recommend this to anyone visiting Oahu, as it really gives you a variety of activities and blend of Hawaiian culture and food. The show was extremely entertaining and was pure family fun. When you come to the mainland of Hawaii, this is a must do. It gives you a true Hawaiian experience, even though it is geared towards tourist.

This luau didn't get the best reviews on Yelp but the locals suggested it was the best. We arrived early and were able to participate in all of the fun activities. Get there early or you will be waiting a long time! The food was good for being buffet style. Everything was organized well. The dancers did a great job. I'd definitely recommend!
