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.

"True Hawaiian Experience"
August, 2016
This was the 2nd time I have seen this show and Luau in the last 10 years and it was awesome. The best we have been to clearly!. The performers were friendly and talented and the food was awesome. The activities before the show offer a unique insight into the Hawaiian culture and served well to loosen up my teenagers.

Great job, we will be back!
Tip: Be ready to immerse in the Hawaiian family (ohana) experience and have fun!

"Perfect Luau on Oahu!"
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"
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...

"EXCEPTIONAL ENTERTAINMENT"
November, 2015
PARADISE COVE LUAU IS A MUST ON ANYONE'S AGENDA VISITING THE ISLAND OF OAHU. WE OPTED FOR THE VIP PASS WHICH WAS PERFECT FOR US. THE VIP PASS PROVIDED US WITH FIRST CLASS TREATMENT. THE ENTERTAINMENT WAS EXCEPTIONAL, THE ENTIRE STAFF WAS VERY COURTEOUS, AND THE MEAL WAS DELICIOUS.
Tip: DRESS COMFORTABLY AND ENJOY.

"Not Bad if You Haven't Been to PCC"

Our mistake was going to the Polynesian Cultural Center first. It doesn't quite compare to your typical Luau so that jaded our expectations a bit. It was a beautiful location. The dancers were very authentic and did a good job. But when it comes to fire dancers, PCC has them beat. My 70 year old mother struggled walking all over the cove from one activity to the next. We did enjoy the arts & crafts and games of skill...definitely something for everyone. The stage performance was good, but not great. We felt like we so so much more dancing visiting the PCC villages and river parade. But their performances at dinner alone was awesome. And the food was just typical luau food you get everywhere else...although the Poi rolls at PCC were much, much better. So if you have limited time and only one night to luau we would recommend the PCC. Unless of course you're over on the same side of the island as Paradise Cove and have a free night....we were not, so the drive was long and not so fun either. Oh and if it's rains on you during dinner...they're slow to get rain covers distributed. Bring an umbrella so you can save your food too (by the way, PCC has covered food areas).

The bus ride for $14 from our hotel in Wakiki Beach was WELL worth it. The Grayline bus was full from our hotel alone and our guide kept us entertained on the long ride to and from the luau. We got the mid-range Orchid package and you get gift cards to use in the shop for photos or at the bar. $16 per adult and $12 for kids. When our bus arrived we had to wait for 15 minutes before we were allowed off of the bus for a Mai tai and our orchid greeting/photo opportunity. There was a lot to do but felt rushed. The buffet was all you can eat, but unless you ate fast you were out of luck as it was shut down before the show. The show was great, but started at 7 and was done by 7:50. My mom used a wheelchair and there were sandy areas in the main walking areas that were difficult to maneuver through. For 3 adults, a teen and a child we paid over 600 at booking and although I would do it again, because it really is a can't miss opportunity, I would make sure to only spend a short time at each activity.

This was an amazing experience! We were picked up in Waikiki with Kai as our guide, who did a great job. We did the Deluxe package, which was well worth the extra dollars. Highly recommend!

Wasn't too sure what to expect but am glad we booked it in the end. From the moment we got picked up on the bus our guide Kai looked after everyone and set the mood for the evening. Free drinks on arrival and a freshly cooked buffet. I'm not normally one for buffets but damn this was good. The pork was delicious... The dancing and songs were amazing and I would definitely recommend this to other holiday makers wanting to experience the island culture. Its about 45mins from Waikiki on an amazing backdrop of the ocean. Nothing can beat a stunning pacific ocean sunset with Polynesian singing and fire dancing with great company and host.

"Have to do a Luau!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 24, 2016 NEW
My husband and I came to Oahu for a work event, which included a luau at Paradise Cove. Yes, it's touristy, but we really enjoyed our time there. They offered different activities (making leis, body painting, and more), and we liked walking around the grounds with a cocktail in hand. The views are gorgeous, especially as the sun is setting. The entertainment was good and the food was decent. Let's face it - when you're in Hawaii, you HAVE TO do a luau, and I would recommend Paradise Cove.
