This was my first time in Hawaii and my first Luau. I stayed at the Westin and thought it would just be easiest to go to this show. I booked a premium seat to guarantee a spot. I thought I was the minority that would...More

Both my husband and I really enjoyed this luau from the food to the entertainment. The chicken and pork were tender and tasty. The potato salad was rich and creamy. The dancers were fun to watch, especially the fire knife show.

We purchased the premium seats and I felt it was worth the extra money as we were seated in the main table directly in front of the stage. The show and the fire dancers were definitely the best part of the luau but not very...More

This show was different. It shows traditions from all of Polynesia. Of course, a Samoan Fire Dance, but the various other island dances and costumes were fun to watch. The food was great, also. Fun to sample some things I had never thought of.

The tables are round. The problem is that some are far away from the performers and have obstructed views.
