This was the perfect show to watch with our kids. I didn't want to book an expensive luau, because I knew only my 9 year old would eat and the 7 year old twins wouldn't. The kids were able to make lei's before the show and then once the show started they were able to sit towards the front and... More

We've been to a lot of luau's over the years and they always include entertainment. This entertainment is just as entertaining and it's free. We usually time our dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House on the rail to have a great vantage point. Kids (kri kid) are very entertaining.

Excellent night out. This is a free show and was very entertaining it was only a half hour. Get there early to grab a chair otherwise it was standing room only. Excellent ice cream there to enjoy pre show, this is great for the whole family. Enjoy

What's not to enjoy? A heartfelt, nicely executed show celebrating Hawaiian culture; performed by young and talented performers. And, it's free. Stroll the mall, have a meal and/or beverage, before and/or after the show; and one can have a great and affordable time. A great way to spend a Monday or Thursday evening.

I've been to the top three Hula Luaus on the island. This event is number one for a reason. Held at the Shops of Mauna Lani resort shopping area, this event is held, for free, every Monday and Thursday. Have an early dinner at one of the restaurants then wait for the show to start at 7:00pm. At a Luau,... More

Really fun set of hula and fire dancing. No story and not a big production - just dancing and singing with a nice backing band. The show runs about 45 minutes - a little more hawaiian culture than some of the big Luau shows. Highly recommend.

Not quite a hula show.... more of a sampler of the Polynesian people. Excellent fire dancing. Not as polished as many other shows, but one with skilled performers, and a heart-felt honesty. And it's free ! You can't go wrong.

This was great entertainment in the shopping centre - Mondays and Thursdays. I'd highly recommend. Lovely nights entertainment - you wonder how they can move so many body parts at once!
